IIT Ranking 2015

IIT Ranking 2015 is the result of lot of hard work we put in collecting cutoff data for both for B.Tech (JoSAA Cutoffs) and M.Tech (All IIT GATE cutoffs). These two tools gave us an opportunity to at least rank IITs on the basis of the last rank or last score admitted to IITs.

Without a doubt all IITs are excellent but student always look for answers beyond just cutoffs and make a decision. Admissions to IITs it’s a complicated decisions sometimes. Like in case of B.Tech there are 4 yrs degrees and 5 year degrees. If someone have a chance to get into top IIT but with a 5 yrs degree should one go for it opt for a 4yr degree course? Similarly for M.Tech imagine a situation where someone is getting an unpopular specialization in top IITs on the same time having an offer in core specialization in low rank IIT what should be ones decision? All these kind of questions can answered based on the data available and taken advantage by the experience of last year students’ decision.

To rank IITs we first analyzed JoSAA data for highest student quality entered in any IIT in all the departments followed GATE cutoff data. The result was very clear based on core numbers and stats. But for new IITs I will be making another post by taking other factors such as faculty, courses offered and infrastructure and facilities available to students. I strongly consider that all old IITs have great infrastructure.

The ranking of IITs based on 2015 and 2014 data is as follows.

Rank Institute Established State
1 Indian Institute of Technology Bombay 1958 Maharashtra
2 Indian Institute of Technology Delhi 1963 Delhi
3 Indian Institute of Technology Madras 1959 Tamil Nadu
4 Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur 1959 Uttar Pradesh
5 Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur 1951 West Bengal
6 Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee 2001 Uttarakhand
7 Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati 1994 Assam
8 Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) Varanasi 2012 Uttar Pradesh
9 Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad 2008 Telangana
10 Indian Institute of Technology Indore 2009 Madhya Pradesh
11 Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar 2008 Gujarat
12 Indian Institute of Technology Ropar 2008 Punjab
13 Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar 2008 Odisha
14 Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur 2008 Rajasthan
15 Indian Institute of Technology Mandi 2009 Himachal Pradesh
16 Indian Institute of Technology Patna 2008 Bihar
17 Indian School of Mines Dhanbad Pending to be IIT Jharkhand
18 Indian Institute of Technology Tirupati 2015 Andhra Pradesh
19 Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad 2015 Kerala

Only surprising thing here is ISM Dhanbad, an excellent well established institute but still low at ranking. I think it still not an IIT but for a long time admissions at ISM were made on the basis of JEE Advance and by IITs admission committee and GATE cutoffs for M.Tech admission are very high too. It’s a matter of time to be declared as a new IIT. That year its place will be around IIT BHU (May be better than IIT BHU).

I am going to come up with some analytical posts based on the data analysis and admissions tips and try to help you guys with decisions. To stay updated do subscribe to InI, like us on FB, and follow us on G Plus.
