Rating of engineering colleges by Outlook group

Announcement  |  Economy 

Thapar University, Patiala, one of India’s top technical universities, has been rated AAA+ in an independent rating survey conducted by the Outlook group.

A survey by Career 360 (flagship magazine of Pathfinder Publishing Pvt. Ltd) rated the University AAA+. IITs; NITs and deemed universities across 24 states were surveyed for the ratings. Thapar University is the only University from Punjab to get an AAA+ rating.

Dr. Abhijit Mukherjee, Director, Thapar University said, “At Thapar University we believe in promoting superior quality technical education and this rating has validated our efforts. This would not have been possible without the support of every Thaparian. It’s a proud moment for everybody at the University and will encourage us to do better in the years to come.”

Rating Methodology:

Institutions were grouped into three major categories, based on their entrance examinations: the IIT-JEE institutions, AIEEE institutions and the state-level institutions. The private and deemed universities have been grouped separately. For rating of state-level engineering colleges, which form the bulk of the 3000-plus colleges in the country, the database provided by the departments of technical education, or formal committees such as the Admission Committee for Professional Courses, or higher education councils mandated by the state were looked into.
