Chitkara University Insitute of Engineering and Technology has achieved 11th Rank in North India, 16th rank in ‘Engineering Institute by Research’, 40th in the ‘Top Engineering Institute’ category, 31st among the ‘Top 125 Private Engineering Institutes’ and 48th rank in ‘Placement Category’ of the Times Engineering Institute Survey 2021.
The aim of this research was to identify and rank Top Engineering Colleges in India. The survey featured three primary components to get the ultimate ranking i.e. Perceptual and factual survey, desk research (Participatory Survey). Desk Research was a secondary research module, where a comprehensive list of engineering colleges was generated with the help of the internet, magazines and other publications.
A list of colleges/ universities from previous surveys and a discussion with industry experts to add/delete any college were some of the sources used for the generation of engineering college lists. In the Perceptual Survey module, a structured Questionnaire was provided to selected respondents comprising HR professionals, faculty, alumni, current students, and aspiring students to arrive at a ranking and rating of engineering colleges.
Infrastructure, Faculty, Course Curriculum, Industry Interaction, Pedagogy, Research Orientations & Focus, Global Exposure, Placement and Overall Brand Value were the key parameters covered in Perceptual Rating. In the Factual Survey, more than 1400 engineering colleges were sent the factual data questionnaire and then rigorously followed up through different modes such as telephone, email and even face-to-face if required.
The factual data sheet was focused on information areas like General information of the college: Establishment, College type, Affiliation etc, Courses offered & the number of seats, Infrastructure, Faculty, Intellectual capital, Industry interface, Placement, Potential to network, Exchange programs & Global exposure, Research Orientation & focus, Alumni chapter etc. A robust approach was followed to arrive at the final rankings.
