Engineering is one of the most popular UG and PG courses in India. The country produces the highest number of engineering graduates every year in the whole world. According to The All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) report of 2019 by the Ministry of Human Resources, more than 38 lakh students have enrolled in various engineering programs across various colleges in India. 

India has some of the most premium engineering institutions. Most of these premium institutions are either IITs or NITs. The candidates must appear in JEE Main (for NITs) and JEE Advanced (for IITs) to get admission into one of the Top engineering colleges in India

 

The competition for admission into IITs and NITs is getting tougher and tougher every year. With more than 2 million students appearing in JEE Main every year, it is undoubtedly one of the toughest entrance exams in India. However, less than 10% of these students succeed in securing admission into NITs and IITs. The rest of the students opt for tier-2 engineering institutions (government or private) through various other entrance tests. 

According to the National Institutional Ranking Framework, these are some of the top engineering colleges in India
