Engineering is one of the most important sectors for the development of a society. With engineering comes innovation which makes a society progressive and sustainable. There are many reputed and prestigious private and government engineering colleges in India.
We see the best engineering college is based upon the most sought after and arguably the most important criteria, that is the median placement salaries. An average salary can be understood as the salary you will get in a batch of 101 students if 50 students get placed at higher packages than you and 50 get placed at lower packages than you. Sounds like a satisfactory deal. 😀
There are a lot of other parameters too. Trust me, they aren’t important for an undergraduate student. Everything else than the placements is secondary, e.g. in the NIRF Rankings median salary (GMS) has a net weightage of 5% while the research and publications weightage is a whopping 20%. The very first entry in the ranking above shows how good performance in other areas does not necessarily invite good placements and vice-versa.
Since every year, the trends preferably changes. The answer for best Engineering colleges in India too is targeted only towards the students who are going to take admission in various undergraduate courses this year. Ranking are stated by Ministry of Human Resource and Development,NIRF

Among the top 10 this year, there are eight IITs including IIT Bombay, Kharagpur, Delhi and Roorkee. The other non-IIT institutes among the top 10 are Anna University, Chennai and Jadavpur University Kolkata. Overall, we have
1. Indian Institute of Technology (Multiple Locations)
2. National Institute of Technology (NIT)
3. BITS PILANI
4. Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT)/ SRM
5. DTU/ PEC
6. And few no. of other Private colleges is different states
Essentially, these Parameters are only useful for the Institute’s reputation but not for you. Choose your preferences wisely. Don’t go for a good Institute. Go for an Institute good for you.
