India is a country where possibly all parents want their children to grow up to become either engineers or doctors. As far as the entrance examination and the number of colleges are concerned, it is easier to get admission in B. Tech rather than in medical. Also, the sudden growth in the IT sector in the county has created a great demand for engineers and most students consider this to be the easiest way of getting a job.
Top Engineering Colleges in India have their say in terms of their monopoly to give the best education and also in acquiring the best of the students. But why do students continue to study so hard to get into these colleges? Surely the placements and the job prospects are great!
National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) is the methodology adopted by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, to rank all the institutions of higher education in India. The framework considers five parameters like teaching, research, graduation outcome, outreach and perception.

Most noteworthy detail is that Google and Facebook showed a keen interest in hiring from IITs and other top engineering colleges in India; but that doesn’t mean they were the only ones.
These statistics show that engineering is still hot and the demand for engineering is still on the rise. The only stipulation here is that since the competition is stringent and there are numerous engineering colleges in every state of the country, you have to come from one of the top engineering colleges to be able to work at one of the top companies not just in India but also the world. You will notice that companies such as Goldman Sachs, Citibank, and Morgan Stanley are also placing students from Indian colleges. These are top companies on the global level and the fact that they are coming to India for placements shows that India has great talent.
