Taking into consideration, the holistic show of institutes- admissions, faculty, placements, academic resources and other key factors that a prospective engineering candidate would like to make basis for their decision of choosing the best engineering college, Chronicle has come out with the India’s Best Engineering Colleges Survey for 2019.
As much as the growth of engineering institutes in India is a blessing for the ever growing number of engineering aspirants, it is also overwhelming for the students to make the best decision with so many offerings. Also, what adds to the woe of many of these students is a perception that one needs to graduate from a particular set of top colleges to lead a successful career path in the field of engineering. Though the process of selection of the ideal engineering institute becomes bewildering with so many factors to consider, the importance of these institutes cannot be disregarded; good teaching, evenly balanced process of theory and practice, developing problem solving skills, gaining insights into relevant and existing problems of the area, time management and various other essential aspects that one will gain from an institute will prepare them for what lies ahead and therefore move forward to establish oneself as an eminent contributor to the industry.
To make this selection process s little smoother for you, we believe it is essential to remove everything trivial from the way. Therefore, Civil Services Chronicle has come out with a credible and reliable ranking of the engineering institutes in India. The survey is purely based on analysis of data of the participating institutes. The rankings will take you through the best institutes on an overall basis as well as based on certain factors such as placements, academic excellence amongst others providing you insights in all respects.
How We Chose The Best Institutes?
1. Desk Research and Factual Data Collection
As per the changing scenario of the Engineering education in India, weights of parameters had to be modified as some new attributes and sub-parameters like Entrepreneur Development and International collaborations were introduced keeping in view the new trends.
2. Validation of Data through Physical Survey
The research team of Chronicle visited numerous institutes which have participated in the survey. The team interacted with the directors, faculty members, current students, academicians. The data was validated and different parameters were critically analyzed.
3. Analysis: Final Ranking of the Institutes
Perceptual Score: Ratings on various parameters for each institute calculating importance of various parameters to arrive at weights for each parameter by using a regression model.
Factual Score: The information collected corresponded to similar parameters as in the perceptual survey. A detailed scoring system was developed for each parameter. The final score for an institute was an average of Perception Score and Factual Score - equal weight age (50:50) was given to both.
