Dataquest-IDC survey of T-school in India – 2007

14 Jun

After India-today and outlook, here is The Dataquest ranking of engineering colleges. Well as soon as I saw the mail today that rankings are out I packed my stuff and left for library :D. I was hoping that I won’t get my hands on the issue, but by the Almighty’s grace, I found it lying there.

Here, is the list of top 20 Engineering Colleges along with their scores and last year’s rank.

The Parameters were:- Campus placements, infrastructure, academic environment and industry interface.

Miscellaneous aspects of the survey:-

1. IIIT-H stood 5th in placements, behind 4 IITs viz. Kgp, Guwahati, Roorkee, Madras.

2. The highest salary offered this year was 45 lac per annum. By Schlumberger (world’s largest oilfield service corporation). And I was offered to a student of neither IIT nor NIT. But a student of Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology.

3. Highest salary offered by an IT company was 18 lac to a student of IIT-Kgp.

4. Another interesting point, I noted that Jadavpur university stood first, in the no. of students per batch. They have 850 final year students.

5. In IITs, Kgp has max 650 and Guwahati has min 209 students per batch.

6. Colleges which were gone missing

Anna university-TN, Bangal Engineering College, DCE, IIIT-Gwalior, NIT-suratka, NIT-jalandhar, NIT- raipur, PSG- coimbatore, PEC-chandigarh, VIT-vellore, VNIT-nagpur etc.

(reasons :- shared info late, gave incomplete info or refused to share info)

7. Book lists 117 top T-schools of India. They asked for data from 340 institutes.

8. For detailed info consult DQ’s latest issue.

PS :- I have observed that survey guys do lots of mistakes, like in Outlook they considered IIIT-H a government institute. And here in Dataquest survey they considered IIIT as part of IITs while ranking the non-IIT institutes.

PS:– Ironically NSIT stood 23 in the survey.

PS:— For the same academic year IIT-kanpur stood 1st and last among the IITs. What would u call that?

PS:—- For more details read the latest issue of Dataquest. It not up on net till now.

PS:—– Back to me.

PS:—— Lost a bet to Akash, will write about it in detail in the next post.

PS:——- song of the day Bol na halke halke – jhoom barabar jhoom

PS:——– finished 3 novels in 2 days. Isn’t a world record?

PS:——— end of post.
