One of the largest producers of engineers in the world, India’s impulse for creating centers of technical training came from its British Raj rulers. India’s first engineering college, Thomason College, was established in 1847, with an aim to train Civil Engineer at Roorkee, Uttarakhand. By 1856, three colleges were opened, namely, the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur, College of Engineering, Pune, and College of Engineering, Guindy.
During the boom of the IT industry in India, Engineering colleges mushroomed across the country. With updated curriculum, proper student-faculty ratio, and strong linkages with the industry, Engineering Colleges are striving their best to make their students job-ready. With the Government of India implementing Phase III of the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP), where the institutions are given financial support to improve their quality, the engineering colleges are gearing up to help their students face the cut-throat industry and secure their career.
Housing the third-largest education system in the world, now India is a hub of top engineering universities that impart top-quality education in various fields in engineering. Engineering is a popular stream of study among the youth of India. Every year, lakhs of students appear for the JEE Main to get admission in the best engineering colleges.
With that in mind, we at the Higher Education Digest present to you the “50 Must-Watch Engineering Colleges in India”. Featuring these colleges, we aim to present their efforts in helping students step into the industry of their choice with ease and develop an educational ecosystem, by bringing efficiency in the current education system, to support our growing economy, and be recognized and commended by all.
