“Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility”—Peter F. Drucker, the American educator and writer
The EFY research bureau is back with its ranking of India’s Top 50 Private Engineering Colleges that have evolved over time as epicenters for producing technical talent for the Indian electronics and IT industry. While on the one hand, the initiative would help engineering aspirants narrow down on the ‘right’ institution for them, it would also motivate the Indian engineering institutions to strive for excellence. Organisations, in particular, would be able to recruit better talent, with knowledge of the colleges that have the capacity and the vision to produce industry-ready technical talent.

Methodology The survey report is based on the data gathered from private engineering colleges across India. Although there are autonomous bodies like IITs and RECs too, we have not included them in this survey. To ensure that there is no trace of any bias in the ranking published, this survey was kept open to all privately-run engineering colleges, and there was no fee for filing nominations.
The study was divided into two phases: Initial phase. In the first phase of the study, we invited thousand plus private engineering institutes across India to participate in the survey. A few hundreds of them chose to participate.
Second phase. In this phase of the study, we sent a questionnaire to the willing institutes on the following parameters: 1. Talent nurturing capacity 2. Technology adoption 3. International exposure 4. Infrastructure of the institutes
About a hundred of them furnished complete datasheets within the stipulated timeframe. The research team verified the data on the basis of documents furnished and telephonic conversation with some of the participating institutions.
For overall ranking, we assigned weights to the parameters, then ranked institutes according to the decreasing order of total weightage and picked the top 50 amongst them.
Next, we ranked institutes based on their score in individual parameters of talent nurturing capacity, technology adoption, international exposure and infrastructure, and chose Top 10 amongst them.
During this survey, we also identified some of the recently established engineering colleges (established after year 2004) that are striving hard with a clear vision to emerge as centres of excellence. The survey report includes the names of a few such institutions in a separate box to encourage their efforts. Hope to see these institutes in the main ranking soon.
