Chitkara University Institute of Engineering and Technology (CUIET) has been ranked 2nd in the Dataquest T-School Digital Index Survey 2020. Dataquest 16th annual survey was based on rankings of the top 100 engineering colleges in India. A survey was undertaken by Dataquest, along with CyberMedia Research (CMR), in Digital Index, Employability Index and Overall Survey across Parameters including Placement, Infrastructure, Industry-Academia Partnership and Academics.
The Dataquest ranking of engineering institutions has been well recognised and much sought after for deep insight into the state of technology education for over fifteen years. DQ-CMR released India’s first digital index survey, showcasing ICT adoption among T-Schools, in response to the pandemic-driven lockdown, which is driving more use of technology by the education sector. The Dataquest Top T-School Survey 2021 provides an in-depth look at India’s top institutes and the fast shifting scene in the post-pandemic period. With its 16th edition, the survey, which is an industry-recognized trademark on technical education and is highly regarded by students, parents and recruiters alike, was released. T-Schools and their contribution to critical skills in the technology industry were the subject of the poll, which ranked them through a thorough evaluation process.
The T-School 2021 Survey drew participants from famous IITs, NITs, IIITs, as well as private and government institutions. At least one T-School from each of India’s main states took part in the poll. With almost 85 percent participation, private T-Schools took the initiative to participate in the exercise. T-Schools in the southern United States led the way in survey participation, accounting for over 56 percent of all respondent institutes. In comparison to the previous year, western institutes took the lead over northern institutes.
A structured questionnaire with over 30 questions was used to capture the Placement, Academics, Campus Infrastructure and Engagement (PACE) Framework. These questions enabled the DQ-CMR team to build a comprehensive picture on the basis of the inputs from T-Schools. The T-Schools were given adequate time to share their completed nominations, either online or in person. The contributions were assessed by the CMR Edutech Practice for completeness and veracity of the information supplied and were subjected to a random check process, with more than 30% of the submissions being cross-checked, in accordance with the market research code of ethics. CMR analysts contacted key stakeholders for further discussion, allowing for a complete picture of the T-School.
In September 2021, Chitkara University Institute of Engineering and Technology was featured on the front page of the Dataquest Magazine and was ranked 10th among the top 100 T-Schools (government and private)’, 4th in ‘All India Private Sector T-School Employability Ranking 2021’ and 5th in India Private T-School Employability Ranking 2021 in North Region published by Dataquest Magazine.
