Top Colleges

IIT Ranking 2010

In 2009 I made my first serious effort to find out best engineering colleges in India and came up with Top Engineering colleges and Top privates engineering colleges lists. For the first time I added new IITs to ranking because of certain factors and most important was to help students, who were taking admission in 2009.

To answer all the questions related to adding new IITs in ranking, I wrote posts such as New IITs or old NIT and Universities, and also for M.Tech admission in New IITs or old NITs. I also mentioned why these New IITs are and should be top preference for students in India.

As I mentioned in earlier ranking posts that I rank Engineering colleges in Indian base on student quality and preference, Faculty, Infrastructure and Industry interface or placements. I still rank engineering colleges on these criteria. For ranking new IIT’s the major factors were faculty research and educational background and also locations. I also relied on the data presented in comments and personal mail by students from IITs regarding ranking of IITs.

Ranking of IITs in 2010

Rank Institute State
1 Indian Institute of Technology Bombay Maharashtra
2 Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur Uttar Pradesh
3 Indian Institute of Technology Delhi Delhi
4 Indian Institute of Technology Madras Tamil Nadu
5 Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur West Bengal
6 Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee Uttarakhand
7 Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati Assam
8 Indian Institute of Technology Ropar Punjab
9 Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad Andhra Pradesh
10 Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneshwar Orissa
10 Indian Institute of Technology Patna Bihar
10 Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar Gujarat
10 Indian Institute of Technology Indore Madhya Pradesh
11 Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur Rajasthan
12 Indian Institute of Technology Mandi Himachal Pradesh

As I predicted 2009 that faculty will be great in these new IITs compared any other institute in India including NITs, excellent faculty from India and abroad is recruited. Anyone still doubt their great success in future arena please visit the faculty pages in these new IITs and in any other institute and compare the faculty. I feel this is just a right start for new IITs and they will be in line or better than old IITs.

If you need a broad ranking of new IITs, in my view IIT Ropar and IIT Hyderabad are first and then IIT Patna, Bhubaneshwar, Gadhinagar and Indore are developing fast, I strongly believe IIT Jodhpur and Mandi will in race soon.

    Unfortunately, the ammo is a little expensive for how quickly you
    go through it. Purple is from Time Spiral, and is a card from
    the past reprinted as a rare. This reduces the risk of inexperienced riders injuring themselves
    or others.

    sir i am studying B.E 3rd year shal i attend Gate 2012…?

  55. manpreet singh

    my jee rank is 5772
    which clge and branch should i prefer

  56. Aditya shukla

    my jee rank (air) is 963, bits score is 360…

    should i take up admission at bits-pilani or iit-roorkee?

    which on is better for electronics & electrical engineering and related fields, in terms of recruitments ?

  57. vizi

    sharddha, let me do one thing clear to you. GATE test only accounts for 70% while interview and written (if there) acoounts for 30%. as your score is 492 means you have very good chances of selectiion but remember you rinterview matters in this case. so see the cutoff of all IIT for last year and then apply, generally they call according to last year cutoff. so prepare well and work hard to impress your interviewer, because if you need marks to compete others in interview..

    good luck

  58. ashu

  96. kevin

    are you guys retarded ? this guy wont answer to your posts so stop asking I have so and so rank would I get so and so college.
    I dont think the new IITs deserve a place here . The college should be rated based on the current state and not on their potential. Most of the new ones dont even have their own building , so I can imagine the kind of research activities happening there. Just by name a college IIT doesnt mean it will provide quality education to the students studying there

  148. karan

    what is the highest package got by stu in any iits.
    plaz reply

  149. shant


    yes, its all right. But as far as ranking is concerned you just see that IIT Gandhinagar and IIT Bhubneswar are not having CS branch. The highest ranker in new IITs generally goes for CS. And by the way, why don’t you just look at the sites again to see the kind of faculties all new IITs are having. Do consider the seniority and rank of faculty?, look at the facilities given at each of the new IITs, the activities of student bodies and most importantly the growth of the institute. I am sure that it will further enhance your rankings.

  150. Anuj VAshisht

    hey Zahid really apperciate yor work its highly commendable . keep rolling out the good stuff.i am preparing for Gate ece. bro if you can put up the placement data (mtech)
    ALL IITS AND NITS ..OR rank the colleges according to the placement .will acts as a catalyst for motivation for all the buddies preparing out their for Gate
    and will certainly IGNITE all them more
    thanx ,
    Er.Anuj vashisht

    1. Zahid

      Anuj: The ranking based on placements go the same way. As good quality of student lead to good placements.

  151. Zahid

    Shant: Please the article completely and the way the ranking has been done. There is not bias or some survey. It is totally based on JEE cutoff ranks and other factors as mentioned above. visit for official JEE cut off and visit IIT websites for faculty details.

    This is most authenticated and well judge ranking your can ever see on Internet. If you want to say about punishment please go ahead to India Today ranking and ask for the data and talk about offense.

    If you have further question drop a comment.

  152. Shant

    Dear friend,
    I have seen the rankings. I strongly believe that you are biased. What do you know about all new IITs. I bet you have not visited all of them. If you are ranking some well reputed institutions then you should do authentic study and then publish any results. If you have done this this kind of study then do send me via mail. If you have not then its a punishable offense.

  153. abed


    I work in a national institute in Japan for more than 10 years and have seen many students and post-docs from IITs and other institutes from India.

    To both of you: it really does not matter the ranking of the IITs. It is up to you. If you are serious about your study and work hard, instead of thinking that a stamp from IIT will be enough for rest of your life you will do well, even if you are from a lower ranking institutes.

    I have seen people graduated from Bardawan or North Bengal or from some unknown institutes in remote places of Orissa doing much better than people from renowned institutes. So do not get obsessed with the ranking of the institutes.

    good luck.

  155. Sanyam Jain

    Hi Zahid..
    I have AIR 393 with 760 gate score. I have taken admission in IIT Kharagpur and have got a mail from iitm to fill a post admission form to avail the chance if someone does not show up in iit madras at last moment..
    They will call on 3rd aug, and my iitkgp session starts from 21 july.
    By the time i get the call from iit madras i would have paid Rs. 35k towards iitkgp which is non refundable…
    Is it worth leaving IIT kharagpur for IIT madras and wasting that 35k for 1 better ranked university as per your website list…
    Please reply soon…..

  156. IITian

    @ nittian
    v can understand ur frustration that u cudn’t make to the IITs n thus u r spitting out ur nonsense here…
    forget it man and start preparing for jam..perhaps one day u ll also get the chance to join our prestigious institute…n dat day u ll come to know the difference betwn n IItian and a “rotting” Nitian…

  157. jatin

    dude i strongly belive in your way of ranking but the rankings of the new iit’s is some what confusing as talking about the rankings they r highly dependent on the city in which they are located and the can give the rankings at present but looking at the range of grants and city conditions it doesnt seems to be fair to put iit ropar ahead of hyderabad , jodhpur and gandhinagar….have you seen the condition of gandhinagar in the inter iit sports meet ??? you should have then your rankings might change……

  158. rajat

    Hey i personally think iit jodhpur and gandhinagar deserves a much better place in the ranking although its in no way official but because you are try to guide students on your personal experience so it would be much better if you review your list by not just looking at the websites {which probably i think you are doing or else do provide the citeria of ur ranking in detail} but actually getting acquainting to real students.

  159. shashank

    Hey Zahid, i don’t know how you ranked the new iits but i thing i am damn sure that your ranking is baseless. The reason how can you rank and misguide students by ranking the new iits without knowing whats going inside of these iits. I have a friend in a couple of friends in iit ropar and guess what they were utterly bored in the first year. And in regard to Bhuwaneshwar and mandi, they you should have atleast not put them on list coz they have just started , you don’t know anything. And mind you iit rajasthan has developed a great culture and iit spirit because of being in iit kanpur for two years andd they certainly deserve to be atleast in top 2 of new iits.

  160. gens


    i don’t know about other new iit’s but IIT Ropar has its placement cell
    moreover being the mentor institute of IIT Ropar ,for the first few years IIT Delhi is going to take care of its training and placement cell.

  161. Sourodeep

    i bet u didnt even get a rank in IITJEE. Lets leave that aside fr the moment cz its not important.
    1. I dont know why u need a great campus of thousands of acres for good education. I personally have seen the NITT campus.Its plain big……and nothing else.Your HUGE library is under construction, as are the campuses of the new IITs.
    2.I have a friend studying in NITT,branch ICE and he’s there cz he didnt crack IITJEE.Again not important.What is important is that when i talk to him he always regrets the fact that he didnt crack IITJEE….as Zahid says…Once an IITian,always an IITian.
    3.IITH library has 500 books for about 300 students.NITT maybe has about 1500 books for 4000 students,Ratios are against your library nittian.same with the other new iits.
    4.Fests. I know the standard of Festember and i would not like to comment on it here. Alma Fiesta IIT Bhubaneswar brought in artists like Pt. Vishwa mohan Bhatt(Grammy Award Winner),Kumar Vishwas,Kryptos,Devoid in its year of inception.
    5.Accept the fact.students studying in IIT,new or old,have cracked the toughest engineering entrance in the country(or probably in the whole world) and they deserve to be there.And we are the top 1.5% of the students. What makes an institute special is not the acres it has to its campus or how many books it has in the library.Its the students who make it the best.
    6.The students at the newer IITs are getting oppurtunities no one gets in older IITs which will polish their organizational skills further… Inter IIT participation to name one.

    P.S-My rank in AIEEE was 3972(AIR).IITJEE-3785
    I chose IIT over NIT and i know i will never regret it.

    four day visit from 13 February till 16 February and visited New Delhi,
    Chandigarh and Ropar.
    The Minister had visited IIT Ropar to take forward the discussions from the
    recent Ministerial visit to UK on collaborations across a range of areas like
    faculty and student exchanges, joint research and academic collaborations,
    student internships etc. IIT Ropar has signed 2 MOUs with 3 UK universities-
    Imperial College London, University of Glasgow together with University of
    Strathclyde ( under the Glasgow Research Partnership in Engineering
    (GRPE)) to foster collaboration in research and research training, and in the
    development of research facilities, based on UK’s experience.
    Minister commented “The work IIT will be doing with our universities will open
    opportunities for students in India as well as in UK that would include student
    exchange programmes”.

    hi friends,

    I think companies know very well that OLD IS GOLD .new iits don’t have placement cell

    how can you say that they will do better in 4-years. i don’t think after 4-years they have good placement.

  164. Dinesh Tomar

    Subject: B.Tech textile technology

    I have done three year diploma in textile chemistry. I have thirteen years of working experienc. Now I want to do B. Tech in textile chemistry/textile technology through distance learning. Please let me know from where I can do the same

  165. nittian

    i am a student of nitt and as my father works in IITM i had lived inside it.u were mistaken to think that i said nitt is better than iitm..iitm is anyday better than nitt….but what i am trying to say is that nitt is better than the new iits..even some profs i know in iit asked me to pick nitt ahead of any new iit and THEY ARE ONE OF THE MOST EXPERIENCED TEACHERS IN IITM.if the profs in iit itself say that the new iits are not worth STUDYING then why bother??in NIT Trichy we have some of the best facilities available after the old iit’s..i know from my friend in iit rajasthan that facilities here outstrip that in iit rajasthan.half of my friends got below 4000 rank in jee and still did not go to a new iit because they were aware of the circumstances there..and a new iit means those students dont have a well equiped library…i saw the iit hyderabad website saying that their library has some collection of 500 books!!!imagine the plight of the students there!and they will definitely not be able to organise cultural and technical festivals without the help of seniors…and even if the new iits r getting rich amount of funds they will take atleast 5 years to become a good coll and another 10 years to even touch the top iits.if in so many years of existance the iits have got to only were they r now, then how come u expect a just born institution to become GREAT ALL OF A SUDDEN??

    P.S.1 i read a comment from a student of some new iit sayin that the students there range from air1400-3500.u must know that it is big lie.i know for certain there are a huge chunk of students after that rank.

    P.S.2 and it is wrong on ur part to even include an iit which has not yet sent out its first batch of students.



    I have got AIR 3421 in IIT JEE 2010 and 1146 in AIEEE 2010. With this rank in IIT, What are my chances in old IITS. Please suggest the prospects of branches available for me at this rank. Should i compromise with branch in IITS or join NITs/DCE/BITS, Pilani.

  167. XYZ

    @ Abhishek Geomatics @IITR is very old branch….its upto u if u r interested in RS and GIS or wanna remain with CS/It

    1. Zahid

      Caeser: Thanks for the comment and giving an idea about IIT Ropar and other new IITs. I m watch new IITs very closing and ranked Ropar high because of great start they took. I think I will too high once the first batch comes out with flying colors. I wish you all great luck and work hard to be best in the nation.
      Please share this with friends too and better they let all other people know, how fast new IITs are growing. Still most of the India think that new IITs are in polytechnics, because India update once in a while.

      Thanks again. And keep doing good work at IIT Ropar students’ site.

  171. nittian

    dear zahid i was practically laughing on seeing ur advice to students to take some godforsaken iit in some place than take in the well established nit.and have u seen the teachers of iit to speak about it??i had been living inside iit madras for 13 years and i know it from the students that half the teachers are crap…and from my experience in nit trichy i know that it is the same case here too..there are only some teachers here and there who really teach well…so please dont embarass yourself by saying that iit teachers are the BEST and others r not…and regarding new iits, do u know that they dont have a campus yet??they have their campus in some polytechnic college!!u say that the iits get more funds than nits..even if it is double the amount,it will take atleast take 15 years for them to establish themselves.and for ur information nit trichy library is at least 1.5 times bigger than iit madras…if u dont believe me come and see for urself..and what is the crap about placements??again nit trichy got 200 companies for their students..average salary is 4.8lpa.and i fathom that no new iit can meet please dont trick urself into believing that the new iits are better than the old iits….

    1. Zahid

      Dear Nittian: There are many things to say about IITs and many misconceptions, Please read my next article about it. Do you think IITs are well know for their teachers. I dont think so, they are known for their students and IIT student are know for their attitude. Better read “The IITians: The Story of a Remarkable Indian Institution and How its Alumni Are Reshaping the World” by Sandipan Deb to get an idea what is IITs and what spirit it shares. Few faculty members understand the spirit of IITs and help students learn what they need to and they are remembered for their contribution, but not all as you said and no one care about them too. 13 years in an IIT is a too big a time to learn things, usually we learn everything there with 4 to 5 yrs time and move out to face the real world.

      If you depend on faculty, please visit new IIT website and their faculty and visit NIT trichy faculty websites you will get to know what output they are going give, i mean each of them.

      Please dont compare IIT Madras and NIT Trichy, I even dont compare new IITs with NITs. Regarding campus that was two years back story that they dont have one and started in a polytechnic college. They blessed that polytechnics with their presence there and now have their own campuses and more beautiful one. Please take pain to visit their websites.

      I never said new IITs are better than old IITs, may you were trying to say old NITs. I m sorry to say again, if anyone is leaving new IIT for an old NIT or other institute will regret in for that decision.

      But believe me at IIT your learn more than math, physics, chemistry, or engineering. You learn attitude there, if you dont you wasted life at IIT. These are just personal views.

      Thanks for dropping by and please feel free to share ideas, hope that benefit many students.

  172. Chaitanya Kansal

    Respected Sir,

    I am from Delhi and have got 3971 rank in JEE and 2731 rank in AIEEE.

    Based on last year’s cut-offs, I just might be able to get ‘Materials and Metallurgical Engg’ in IIT-Roorkee. Also, I am be eligible for CSE/Electrical/Mechanical in some of the new IITS.

    I have a very strong interest in Computers (Had C++ as additional subject in XIth-XIIth and have been a very active programmer)

    I don’t plan to do a job after my B.Tech. I would either pursue an MBA or appear for the Civil Services Exam.

    So, what do you suggest is going to be best for me?

    1. CSE at IIT, Ropar
    2. Something bad at IIT-R and then hope for Branch change
    3. Admission in NSIT/DCE and then appearing for JEE again next year

  173. shahzad tyagi

    Ok, you have ranking total 15 ranking. But four IITs have same ranke as rank 10.How is possible same rank for four IITs. It is writing mistake or not.

  174. shahzad tyagi

    There is 15 ITTs in india. you give ranks only 12 IITs, why escape 3 IITs

  175. Abhishek Das

    I have received a call letter for counselling in IITR for the stream of geomatics engineering(Department of Civil engg). With my rank I think I can get CS or IT in NITs (I have in CS) .
    I am confused as to what I should do, whether I should go for IITR with a relatively new stream or opt for NITs with Computer Science .

    My counselling at IITR is on 01.06.10 (this tuesday). Please advice me as soon as possible.
    thank you

  176. Anoop

    Is the allotment for IIT’s over???If yes,please tell the last ranks of IIT’s intake…

    Thanks for this post.
    I am confused
    I have been selected for Mtech in Instrumentation in IIT KGP and
    I have received interview call from IIT Roorkee for m tech in Instr & Signal pro, Systems & control.
    If I got selected in IIT Roorkee then which IIT should i prefer and why?
    Can u tell me about the mtech placements in these two IITs?
    Plz reply now or asap.

    1. Zahid
