A recent Dataquest-IDC-Nasscom survey has ranked IIT Kharagpur as the 4th best Engineering college in India. IIT Kharagpur ’s “Composite Score” was 73.1, whereas #1 ranked IIT Kanpur scored 77.5. IIT Kharagpur was ranked #1 in the “Industry Interface” category.
No surprises. IIT Kanpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras and IIT Kharagpur, in that order, establish themselves comfortably in the top four and live up to our expectations.
It is not clear exactly what methodology was used to come up with the ranking.
