Close on the heels of the Dataquest survey comes yet another survey by India Today-AC NIELSEN-ORG-MARG. The June 13th Issue of India Today has “Top 10 Colleges of India” as their cover story. IIT Kharagpur is ranked 6th among the Engineering Colleges. Of all the IITs, only IIT Roorkee is ranked behind IIT Kharagpur. IIT Delhi managed to clinch the top spot. Interestingly, IIT Kharagpur has been ranked number 1 in "Factual Rank", although the article does not really explain what that means.

Here is a small excerpt from the article:

This year also sees IIT Mumbai and IIT Madras, third and fourth runners-up respectively for the past two years, move up by one place behind IIT Delhi. These are two of the most resilient IITs. "IIT Mumbai has the best faculty and attracts the best of students because we are located in the country’s industrial captial. Last year, we got 47 of the top 100 JEE students," says Dipan Kumar Ghosh, deputy director, IIT, Mumbai.

We would like to hear from you. What do you think of surveys like this? Do you think they are useful? Please add your Comment, or please join in this Ongoing Discussion.

  2. even some says that students seem preferring IIT mumbai, actually the fact is that we too have started getting top JEE students from some recent years, bcoz this year the 1st JEE topper took admission at KGP, and the highest salary paid this year was 15 lacs……..foreign reputation of this institute is the best among all IITs…….

  9. BITS-Pilani the Best of All.Just visit the campus once.

  10. Not just at Undergraduate Level, even at Ph.D level the admission input criteria such as Ph.D qualifying exam and a tough interview is there where as in IITs no such qualifying exam is there except interview. IITs are infected by reservations and NRI quotas where BITS-pilani has no such reservations except merit.Visit the campus that has not just the technological facilities but also the natural beauty with deer and peacocks every where……Indeed a place to study.

  13. i dont know why all this hue and cry by students of bits pillani for pushing their college name up in the popularity chart.whole world know about iits and there can be any ambuguity about the fact that iit delhi , bombay and kanpur are the best and they will remain so in the coming years.sot pillani boys keep calm,learn to appreciate others acievements.

  15. NITW is the oldest of all NIT’s ,it may not look posh but has all facilities that any other college can dream of having.
    NITW very well deserves a place in top 10.

  16. moti lal nehru national institute of technology is the best among the all NITs in placement. here the max. salary goes to 10 lakhs per annum ……which is not far from the 15 lakh of the best iitkgp………so you should also check all N.I.T.s their infrastructure and hostel facility etc
