Top 10 Private Engineering Colleges In India 2019

Engineering is the most sought-after career choice for Indians. After Indian's premier institutes in engineering, such as IITs and NITs, the next places are occupied by some private engineering colleges. Many private engineering colleges in India are even popular outside the country for their quality in teaching and unique specialisation.

Most of the private engineering colleges accept the score of national-level entrance examinations, such as JEE, for an admission to the courses. However, some conduct their own entrance examinations which are no less compared to JEE in competition and reputation, such as BITSAT, conducted for admission to Integrated First Degree Programmes of BITS campuses in Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad.
