How Have Top Engineering Colleges Been Rated?
As the academic year 2021 is going to begin, the education experts are rating the engineering colleges after completing the deep research as well as the survey. After going through each and every aspect of the colleges and universities, NIRF ranked the engineering colleges.
The parameters considered for ranking include infrastructure, academic achievements, faculty ratio, preferences of students, college facilities, placement statistics, and national importance, etc. In addition to these, experts also see academic productivity, referred publication, industry interface, and quality of students.
Any aspirants who wish to take admission in the course of engineering go through the ranking as everyone wants to have the best education and placement for a better future. As they start preparing for the engineering entrance exam, they also start looking for the best engineering colleges. They go through the different rankings but they want to have some reliable ranking for the admission as it’s a matter of their future. So, here comes the NIRF ranking for top engineering colleges.
Role Of NIRF
As there are many rankings prevailing in the digital world, therefore one needs some reliable ranking for the engineering colleges. Here, comes the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) which outlines the methodology to rank the various institutions all over the country. This framework was set by the MHRD for identifying the broad parameters to rank the various institutions and universities.
The board aspects covered by this framework are Graduation Outcomes, Research Practices, Professional Practices, Perception, Teaching, learning and resources, Outreach, and Inclusivity. Therefore, one can say that the engineering institutions also have to pass through the test of parameters, and the ranking by NIRF is the report card of institutes showing their level of performance.
Parameters For Ranking The Engineering Colleges
NIRF analyzes all the colleges on some points. They do collect the necessary data based on the following parameters to rank the engineering colleges.
1. Graduation Outcomes
- Total percentage of placement
- Higher Studies
- Metric for the total number of students who has done Ph. D.
- Metric for the total number of graduate students are taking admission in top universities.
- Median Salary
- Metric for the University Examination
2. Professional practices along with the research ones
- Patents and IPR
- Combined metric for the total publications
- Metric for the total number of quality publications
- Executive development programs
- Public perception
- Peer perception of the academics
- Peer perception for employers and research investors
4. Teaching, Learning, and Resources
- Total student strength which should also include Doctoral Students
- The ratio of Faculty to students giving more emphasis on the permanent faculty
- Availability of Faculty with experience and Ph. D or its equivalent
- Budget and the utilization of the budget
5. Outreach & Inclusivity
- Total percentage of women
- Total percentage of students from the various states and countries
- How many economically as well as socially challenged students are present
- Number of facilities available for the physically challenged students
Courses Offered by Engineering Colleges
The applicants have dreamed of becoming engineers and therefore they choose the different streams and branches available in the universities and institutions. These branches help the candidates in reaching their dream careers in their life. However, different universities have different branches. It is not necessary that an institution has all the branches of engineering in it. The candidates get the branch of engineering as per the rank in the entrance exam.
The common branches of engineering are as follows:
- Chemical Engineering
- Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Computer Science and Engineering
- Electrical Engineering (Power and Automation)
- Mathematics & Computing
- Engineering Physics
- Production and Industrial Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Textile Technology
- Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology
For taking admission to the engineering courses, one has to pass the engineering entrance exams like IIT JEE. The Advanced Joint Entrance Examination is conducted to give admission to the undergraduate courses. The Exam will be conducted online for the first time in 2021. This exam is mainly for taking admission in IITs. But there are many other prestigious colleges and universities that also accept the score of IIT JEE main and advanced.
The main exam for undergraduate engineering courses is IIT JEE which is conducted in 3 phases:
- Main Exam
- Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT)
IIT JEE Main Exam will be conducted in online mode only. It is necessary for the candidates to clear the exam to qualify for the JEE Advanced Exam where the level of difficulty is not as same as JEE Main.
AAT is for those candidates who are interested in pursuing their career in the architecture discipline. When the candidates pass the JEE Main and Advanced, then only he is eligible to appear in the JEE AAT.
Placements In Top Engineering Colleges
When one enters engineering college, he wishes to have a good job in some multinational company. All colleges make promises to provide the best placement facility. But, in reality, they don’t do so. On the other hand, top engineering colleges offer a good platform to start your career.
All the leading and top engineering colleges have an excellent record of providing placements to their students. The core values of the different universities help their students to develop their personalities and making the students excellent engineers to work and compete at the global level. Through the program of a summer internship, they offer opportunities to have industrial experience.
In these premier colleges, many big corporations such as the Indian Space Research Organization, Samsung, Oracle, UBER, Goldman Sachs, Mircosoft, Google, and so on participate in the placement process. The students participating in these placement processes are offered jobs in various areas like product management, software engineering, geophysicist, research engineering, and so on.
