Ask any student from the Science stream about their plan after Class 12th and the mostly likely answer will be- Engineering. But when you ask them which engineering college they are planning to join, only a few will have a definite answer. This is because increasing number of engineering colleges in India has made the decision that much more difficult for the students.

As a solution to this problem, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has launched NIRF i.e. National Institutional Ranking Framework. This framework follows a unique methodology of ranking educational institutes in different disciplines including Engineering. The methodology includes parameters such as:

MHRD’s National Institutional Ranking Framework – Parameters

  • Teaching, Learning & Resources (TRL)
  • Research & Professional Practice (RP)
  • Graduation Outcomes (GO)
  • Outreach and Inclusivity (OI)
  • Perception

Based on the above five parameters, the HRD ministry ranks different engineering colleges and institutes. So, let's have a look at the top engineering colleges in India for 2018 as per the MHRD’s NIRF Engineering Ranking 2018.

5. Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur

Established in 1959, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur is one of the first five IIT's to be setup in India. It was created with assistance of a consortium of nine leading research universities of the United States. IIT Kanpur also enjoys the distinction of being the first institute in India to offer a course in the field of Computer Science. To ensure world-class technical education, the institute has signed over 30+ MoUs with International universities for student and faculty exchange programmes. This year, it has secured an overall score of 75.24 in the NIRF Engineering Ranking 2018 and has secured the 5th rank among the best engineering colleges in India.
