A recent survey brought out by NASSCOM in a joint initiative with Booz Allen Hamilton, a consultancy firm, stated the need for nearly 1.5 million engineers in the Indian IT industry by next decade. It is evident that IITs, NITs and few other premier engineering colleges alone can not churn out enough engineers to meet this need and it is here the other engineering colleges, private and public, play their role. But with new technology institutes mushrooming in every nook and corner of the country, a dilemma about the quality of education arises for both IT organizations who are looking for good engineers and students who want to pursue a career in this industry.

Hence, Siliconindia brings to you the Top 100 Engineering Colleges in India 2010.
At siliconindia, we understand that the despite the infrastructure, faculty, the fee structure and other criteria, the sole parameter of judging a college’s quality is the performance of its graduates in the industry, which in turn can be measured by the pay package commanded by them. Thus, this list is entirely based on a single parameter – CTC of a graduate after five years of work experience.

To rank the best engineering colleges, a perceptual study was conducted among HR managers, Recruitment firms and job boards. The companies/institutes were chosen carefully to ensure that the HR managers/professionals interviewed were involved with recruitment and had a fair idea about the market. Over 3000 engineers who graduated in the year 2005 and did not pursue any other course/program afterwards were interviewed across the six metros—Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai.

After an exhaustive research and analysis, we finally came up with a list of top 100 engineering institutes (govt/private) in three streams – Computer Science, Electronics and Communication and Mechanical Engineering. Apart from this we also formed a list top 10 institutes across India in each zone.
