As the battle for “top class” institutes accelerates in India, competition for students, better faculty members, and researchers, between engineering colleges across the country, has intensified. In this scenario, our Top Engineering Institutions Ranking plays a significant role in shaping the opinions of current and potential students, parents, employers, and government about the quality of these educational institutions.
With almost all career streams, becoming tough to contest for by each passing year, sending one’s wards to the most suitable and useful edifice of higher education has become literally a Herculean task. But how to determine what is best available option, what should be the benchmark? Is a highly decorated private engineering college good enough reason to send one’s young child there or should there be some yardstick to evaluate any institute considering future. challenges of academics and professional career?
Top Engineering Institutes of India Ranking – 2018” by digitalLEARNING, Asia and Middle East’s premier magazine on innovation in education has been done on the basis of various parameters like student admissions, competence of faculty, campus infrastructure, placements etc.
The purpose of ranking the engineering colleges of the country is to provide youth with the best choices in engineering education which not only limited to getting them jobs but also help them to become the vibrant minds for the nation.
Top Engineering Institutes of India Ranking – 2018”also includes information about the world of Indian private engineering colleges, factors and methodology to rank them. The perception based ranking is for all those, who are somehow attached to an engineering college i.e. parents, teachers, educators or the school management.
Under the parameter, it has been tried to find out how stringent is the selection process of students to ensure merit and diversity of intake. Tougher entrance process decides the enrollment of better quality of students. Under the parameter, the number of branches, approved intake of students in every branch, actual intake of the students and the new branches proposed in the institute are also considered basis which the overall score is given to an institute.
Other than that how updated is the curriculum with the best and latest global teaching-learning processes is also very important sub-factor under the parameter. Innovation in curriculum and in pedagogy to keep the students ahead in future is also considered in awarding scores to the institution.
A good faculty can make or mar the reputation of any educational edifice. Their capabilities educational as well as aptitudinal can prove detrimental for any engineering institute. The impact that a faculty member can have on the student experience can be seen in and out of the classroom.
We found that faculty behaviours and attitudes affect students profoundly, which suggests that faculty members may play the single-most important role in student learning.
The DigitalLEARNING magazine considered “Faculty” as one of the parameters for its Top Engineering College ranking because for developing a premier educational institution it is vital to develop a strong faculty. It not only assists in the cognitive development of the students but also restricts the rising rate of brain drain from the country to the west.
An engineering institute is much more than research, teaching and learning. The campus of an institute is the centre of lives of all enrolled students. Hence, the infrastructure of an engineering college that includes everything, from lecture rooms to cafeteria and from laboratories to hostel is vital for students.
Understanding its importance, “Infrastructure” has been included as a parameter in Top engineering colleges ranking.
In “Top Engineering Colleges Ranking 2018”, digitalLEARNING magazine has considered infrastructure as one of the important parameters for allocating the grades to educational institutes. While talking of the institute’s infrastructure, we have kept in mind the following parameters: sports facilities, student accommodation, IT infrastructure, library facilities, research facilities and medical facilities.
As we prepare our youngsters to be a productive contributor of national economy, we must remember it is global, competitive, and interconnected.
For students to feel comfortable in such an environment, they need opportunities to participate in more collaborative learning experiences internationally. Doing so engages students, furthers their learning, improves intercultural awareness, and connects them to the contributions of diverse and valued cultures.
The potential power of combined talents between nations could greatly improve the amount of knowledge and possible solutions to these global problems. International partnerships between country’s engineering institutes and global universities are extremely beneficial for students as well as for the institution. DigitalLEARNING magazine has therefore, used “Global Collaboration” as one of the key ranking parameters for the ranking of engineering colleges.
The factor also rates the industry exposure given to the students by an institute through live projects, partnership with industries, industry visit of the students, internships and guest lecturers from industry experts like chairman, board of directors, managing directors, etc.
Every intelligent student aspires to join an engineering college with a higher placement rate. While searching for a good institution, students prefer educational institutions that boost their employability and we, at Digital Learning magazine, have used “Placements” as one of the key parameters while ranking them. From the student perspective, high quality placements can bring a range of benefits and positive impacts. There is a strong evidence to suggest that placements and work experience are extremely valuable to students, both in terms of their academic performance and their employability skills. Placements give students the opportunity to gain skills specific to their subject or industry of choice as well as the employability skills required for real-life work. It is an opportunity to be involved in teambased working, which provides a welcome contrast to the typically more individual-centric approach taken to academic study.
