2013 Ranking Released - Find out the top engineering colleges in India 2013
COMPARED to B-Schools, the data availability with respect to engineering colleges is slightly better. Basic information is available; partially thanks to the mandatory disclosure that AICTE has directed all the colleges to publish. But there are lots of gaps even in these huge documents. The worst offenders are the IITs and NITs, followed by many state private universities and deemed universities. So as stated in the methodology, we have basically used the mandatory disclosure data from the institutions to evaluate and rank them. These results are based on the final normalised scores we generated for each college.
The IITs have been rated on the basis of past rankings as well as publicly available information. For some of the known private and deemed universities we have used publicly available information. They have been colour-coded separately for easy identification. The AIEEE institutions have been rated separately, based on their cut-off ranks branch-wise.
Among the national exams IIT-JEE, AIEEE and ENAT, only AIEEE publishes cut-offs. And IIT-JEE could be assessed relatively easily. So ratings for colleges belonging to the first two sets are comparable.
At the state level, it is impossible to compare colleges from different states. In other words, an AAA college in one state may not give the same opportunities or education vis-à-vis an AAA college in another. Factors such as larger concentration of colleges, age of the college, alumni network and competition, all form a part of the experience.
So use our rating to assess colleges within your state. To enable ease of use, we have also listed AIEEE colleges and IITs under the state list. And when you compare an A level college from AIEEE or JEE, you can safely assume that they are on par with an AA level college in the state.
Deemed and private universities are a major area of concern. Barring a few of them, most colleges have very little usable information on their websites and they do not even publish the minimum disclosure norms mandated by the UGC. We have rated them using past rankings as well as publicly available information. So consider our rating only as a broad guideline in these cases.

|Orissa||Rajasthan||Tamil Nadu||Uttar Pradesh|
|West Bangal||Gujarat||Madhya Pradesh||Uttarakhand|
|Tripura||Punjab||Jharkhand||Jammu & Kashmir|
Next year, we hope to rate at least 1,000 colleges. Ans we hope to work with AICTE/ UGC to ensure that at least minimum comparable information is available with respect to all the colleges.
