Top Engineering Colleges in India – Things To consider Before Admission

Engineering is one of the most popular career fields among youngsters today. This field offers a number of job opportunities and career scopes for students. All aspirants with an interest in engineering look forward to having a good job in their chosen engineering stream. But, students need to know several aspects before choosing the best engineering university in India.

Eligibility standards

The first thing to consider is eligibility criteria and norms in the college that you are looking forward to joining. There are many universities and institutes in India following the similar standards, eligibility norms and admission procedures. Some colleges accept the scores of national level entrance test, but some have their own eligibility rules and organize exams to assess a candidate’s aptness.

College ranking

The ranking of an institute or college depicts its statues and popularity among students and parents. Thus, you should check the ranking and ensure to get admission in the top-ranking college. Students also need to check a college’s seat allotment practice and engineering disciplines before getting enrolled in a course. This will aid them to have a rough clue about the study methods and vision of an institute.

Placement record

The reason why students select an engineering program or other courses is getting a good career opportunity after the competition. Many colleges provide placement assurance to their students in order to help them get a chance to grow their skills and earn money. Thus, you must check the placement record of a college before getting enrolled.

University infrastructure

College infrastructure is one of the most important factors that you should consider when selecting an engineering college. An excellent university has great infrastructure and is well equipped with spacious classrooms, campus, clean hostels, labs, hygienic canteens, and playground. So, make sure the college you have selected has a highly advanced structure and set-up.


A teacher or an instructor plays an important role in guiding a student with the right knowledge and practical skills. Thus, the faculty members are major aspects that students should check before getting enrolled in an engineering college. So, make sure the institute has sufficient instructors and faculty members to help and guide students about basics and innovative concepts and also grow an aptitude to distinguish the apt place and time to utilize those skills. Many reputed colleges have the record of the teachers and coaches on the authorized website to aid students and visitors get to know about the same.

The NorthCap University (NCU) is recognized as the best engineering university in Gurugram. NCU is ranked among top ten engineering colleges in Haryana for offering best undergraduate and postgraduate courses in science, engineering, law, and management.

Externship in Federal Mogul

Mr Manoj K Gopaliya and Mr Satnam Singh, Dept of Mechanical Engineering were on externship in Federal Mogul, Bhiwadi Plant from 1–2 Dec 2017. This plant is manufacturing valve seats and guides for car engines and exports to automobile giants such as Maruti and Ford. Faculty members got an opportunity to see their world class manufacturing facility for various components and advance manufacturing process such as sintering.

Externship in Federal Mogul

During the interaction with the HR Manager, the team requested him to conduct pre-placement interviews for NCU’s pre-final year students and to engage some students on live industrial projects. This request was accepted and the Dept of ME is looking forward to a more fruitful engagement with the industry in the near future.

Automatic Weathering Station at NCU

Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Govt. of India, has approved the installation of an ‘Automatic Weathering Station’ (AWS) on The NorthCap University Campus, Gurugram. AWS is an automated type of weathering station which records real time data about weathering parameters like rainfall, humidity, sea level pressure, wind speed, wind direction, insulation, maximum and minimum temperature. Prof. Pramila Goyal, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, NCU says, “There is a deficit in real time weathering data collection in India, and the data obtained from AWS will be very useful for effectively monitoring and recording weathering parameters for research works related to environment assessment for BTech, MTech, and PhD students. Rainfall data obtained from the AWS will also be useful for regional farmers.”


The process of installation of AWS in NCU has already begun. Mr Sanjeev Tyagi, IMD visited NCU campus on 12 May 2017 and investigated a number of suitable sites for installation of AWS and has proposed a suitable site in the workshop area. Mr Sanjeev Tyagi says, “Govt. of India is focused on transition of weathering stations from manual to automatic due to its high range applicability. Currently there are only 675 AWS installed in India and nearly every district in India has been installed with an AWS.” He has affirmed that AWS equipment is likely to be installed at NCU within four to five months. Mr Tyagi also explained to the faculties of the Dept of Civil & Environmental Engineering the detailed methodology of processing data parameters obtained from AWS. The general public can also access the data from any AWS station in India through the IMD website.

It is a well-known fact that air quality of Gurugram is a matter of serious concern. The need of the hour is to have effective environmental policies for which reliable meteorological data is required. To enhance the assessment of air quality, Dept of Civil & Environmental Engineering discussed the need and scope of installing an ‘Air Quality Monitoring’ equipment at NCU, Gurugram.

Prof.R Singh of Ohio State University visits NCU

Prof.R Singh (Honorary Distinguished Professor, The NorthCap University Academy Professor, Dept of Mechanical & Aero Engineering and OSU Emeritus Academy Director, NSF Smart Vehicle Concepts Center, The Ohio State University, Columbus, USA) visited NCU on 9 May 2017 to conduct a Faculty Development Programme on research, funding and publications, in Mechanical Engineering Department. The FDP was attended by 18 faculty members and research scholars. Prof. Singh interacted with the Pro VC and ended the mentorship programme with interaction with the Pro-Chancellor.

He engaged faculty members with exhaustive discussion on varied topics like, origins of research problems, formulation of research problems, resources or funding needed for research activities, scholarly publications and research credentials, elements of publications, independent work vs. collaborative, team oriented research, publication ethics. Prof. Singh gave significant guidance to pursue research and gain recognition. He discussed about innovation paradigms with mechanism to generate a highly skilled workforce for tomorrow. He also shared upcoming R&D topics for vehicle trends and needs along with role of academic research from students, faculty, industry/government perspective. He shared common academic research examples which were highly appreciated specially by the faculty members who are planning to register for the PhD programme. Prof. Singh visited the labs of the Department of Mechanical Engineering where he gave valuable inputs like modification in approach to conduct practical in the collaborative manner where a practical would need knowledge of more than one course to be performed.
