Engineering continues to be the most-opted course by the class 12 graduates. Over 4,000 engineering colleges are spread across the country and a good number of them are located in the Garden City of India, Bangalore. The city, which is also called the Silicon Valley of India, is home to hundreds of MNCs in the software industry. Pursuing engineering in the city will lead to better campus placements with attractive pay perks.
To pursue engineering in Bangalore, a candidate has to qualify in the required entrance examinations such as Consortium of Medical Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK) and Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET). One can also use their score secured in national-level examinations such as Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for an admission to engineering courses in central institutions. Here are the best engineering colleges in Bangalore based on the National Institutional Ranking Framework, which is approved by the HRD Ministry.
