After conducting a search for deemed universities in India, we conducted a small research to make a list of Deemed or private universities in India those offer engineering degrees and approved by UGC and their degrees are accepted for master degree in engineering by AICTE.

We only included private deemed universities and excluded all government run institutes and International Institute of Information Technology (IIITs). This list of taken from Ministry of HRD web site a government organization for education in India. The original list includes non-technical universities too. We extracted only private universities that offer bachelor degrees, master degrees, and/ or PhD degrees in Engineering domain.

These universities are ranked based on intellectual property (faculty and research contribution) and placements. We conducted a detailed research of each university and collected information about faculty members of popular and common engineering branches during January 2010. Based on simple statistical formula we made a list of Best or Top Deemed Universities in India.

For more details and rankings you can visit Top Engineering colleges in India or Top private Engineering colleges in India. We also made an exclusive ranking for NITs and also working for towards a list of Top engineering colleges for AIEEE.

The List of best Deemed universities for engineering according to Prof. Tondan’s report is as follows. Universities from 8 to 16 were recommended to improve to retain deemed university status whereas rest of the deemed universities apart from this list for engineering were black listed.
