Students often face confusion while selecting a proper college in order to pursue engineering. They always look for a well-developed college, which provides excellent infrastructure, placements and faculties.
Every year, the National Institutional Ranking Framework under the HRD Ministry ranks institutions across the country based on parameters such as teaching, learning & research, professional practise, graduation outcomes, outreach and inclusivity and perception. It has recently published the ranks for engineering, law, management, architecture, pharmacy and other institutes.
As the engineering admissions are taking place in Tamil Nadu, we have decided to publish the best engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu. Here is the list of top 10 engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu.
