How We Ranked Them

Views: 532

We have ranked 250 engineering institutes in the country based on: Faculty Details, Fee Structure, Research Activities and Placements on a scale of AAA+ to A, with AAA+ being the highest rank on the scale. The government institutes have been ranked based on perception voting and the private institutes have been ranked based on analysis of available data. We have also listed promising institutes in some zones, which have the potential to be in the top league in the coming years.

 

Ranking methodology

Public Institutes: We chose the best public institutes and Institutes of National Importance in a transparent and democratic manner through public voting.
We followed a two-step process:
Step 1: A list of Top 70 government-aided institutes (including IITs, NITs, IIITs and others) was prepared.
Step 2: We eliminated 20 institutes that received lowest number of votes, from the list of 70 shortlisted institutes. Based on the number of votes received by these institutes, we have declared the Top 50 Public Engineering Institutes.
The voting conducted on a popular social networking sites got an amazing response of 15,943 unique votes. Among the voters, there were 12,342 students and alumni; 1,536 teachers and academics; 1,245 people representing coaching centres and 820 undergraduates.
Private Institutes: To gather maximum available information about any institute and ensure its credibility, we followed a three-step approach:
Step 1: We analysed the past three years’ rankings conducted by various organisations in the country. We filtered the list to eliminate colleges not ranked by any organisation in their previous rankings. Further, those institutes which featured only once in any of these rankings were also eliminated.
Step 2: We visited the official websites of 3,000+ institutes and private universities to get information such as Infrastructure, Placement, Teaching Pedagogy, Faculty, Foreign Collaborations and Research Activities. For AICTE affiliated institutes, we got most of the information from the mandatory disclosures in their official website. However, the challenge was that most institutes did not have the updated disclosure on their website.
We also studied the student reviews in some of the education portals to get a better understanding about the institutions we have ranked.
Step 3: We also asked engineering institutions across the country to send us filled questionnaire in a given format.

Only 197 institutes reverted with filled questionnaire in the given deadline. Simultaneously, we were able to gather complete information of 1,750 odd colleges, out of the list of 3,000+ colleges that we had targeted.
