DAILY MAIL COLLAPSE COMMENTS : AUG 08, 2008 12:00 AM HAVE YOUR SAY 38 Could i please get contact details of the firm which did this survey? I think there is one college in the list(TOP 10) which really doesn’t deserve to be there. That college will register anyone who has political influence and money and moreover also help you get a USA visa for a fee…. Well, there’s a lot more to it… Let me know if someone is interested in the details… ANONY GGG NOWHERE, INDIA JUL 21, 2008 12:00 AM 37 JUL 08, 2008 12:00 AM y not SRM Institute of Science of Technology this time. its not correct KARTIKEY MEERUT, INDIA 36 JUL 05, 2008 12:00 AM ell it seems akaash u have underestimated da-iict and VIT. but SRM and MIT(maeer) has been neglected. its pretty strange actually SUDIP GUPTA SILIGURI, INDIA 35 Sir, Thanks a lot for publishing my letter in your printed issue. I still did not get answers to my questions. 1) Did MIT-Pune and BMS , Bangalore participate in the rankings,. If they have not participated then it is OK, otherwise please note that I strongly feel That MIT-Pune is in top 10 private colleges of India and BMS Bangalore in top 20. Please rely. Thanks..

Agitations have already started because of this. it has affected the admission too as bank loan also require ranking. its infrastructure is really good and has improved dractically over the last two years. response will be highly appreciated SUDIP GUPTA SILIGURI, INDIA 32 Hello Editor, Please do make change in your record that BIT-Sindri(Jharkhand) is a well known, a prestigious college and is a Govt. Engineering college. The Alumini are excellent and the college is having tremendously good and deserving candidates as students there. Any BITian can take legal action against this mistake done by you.
Please do make the changes… DEEPAK KUMAR MODI BANGALORE, INDIA JUL 03, 2008 12:00 AM 31 JUL 03, 2008 12:00 AM Surprised to find BIT Sindri, the only government engineering college in the state of Jharkhand among list of top 35 private engineering college. Isn’t it a blunder? Can’t you correct it including scores. ASLAM M CHAKRADHARPUR, INDIA 30 How is IIIT no 2. I do not get it as its total score is less than some other colleges ranked below it. You have given all possible explanations and also corrected lot of mistakes, but tell me clearly which colleges did not participate in the rankings.
I want to know if MIT-Pune and BMS Bangalore participated in the survey. MIT-Pune was ranked 13th in India last year and BMS was in the top 20. Give some explanation man, your’s is a national magazine and you just cannot play with the future of students by doing a survey which does not look authentic. AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUL 03, 2008 12:00 AM 29 JUL 03, 2008 12:00 AM I think outlook has to be responsible and give some replies, they got everything wrong. The survey of 2007 was better. I am thinking what will happen to students if they follow this survey, everday the list is changing. AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA 28
Now for the top 10 let me think1. BITS PILLANI. 2. THAPAR, PATIALA. 3. RV COLLEGE, BANGALORE. 4. VJTI MUMBAI. 5. MIT-PUNE. 6. MANIPAL INST OF TECH, MANIPAL. 7. PSG COLLEGE OF TECH, COIMBATORE. 8. DHIRUBHAI AMBANI IICT, AHMEDABAD. 9. BMS, BANGALORE 10. VIT, Vellore AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUL 03, 2008 12:00 AM 27 any comments on this list please. I have tried to be reasonable and also done lot of groundwork. There are few more institutes in top 20 which are also good. The logic in this ranking is not to be biased region-wise. these rankings are based on1. academic environment 2. infrastructure/facilities/sports/ international chapters etc. . Placement and companies in which placed(eg. mnc’s, global leaders, it companies etc) 4. student value+results 5. industry interface. 6. industry response and hr perception. regards, AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUL 02, 2008 12:00 AM 26 ashok, wht d hell u think u r?? u were d 2st person who didn’t wanted anyone 2 pay much attention 2 these ranking.. now u r taking a u-turn when i also agreed u….. i think u r much stupid than me………. PRANAV LUCKNOW, INDIA JUL 01, 2008 12:00 AM 25 i have passed 12th this year. i m looking for admssions to a good college in india. i went thru ur survey. i have found it impressive. till, i want to know how much can i depend on this survey of TOP 35 PRIVATE ENGG. COLLEGES for my choice of engg. college. i would be obliged if u reply to my query very soon since my counsillings are going to began from 4th july.. PRANAV LUCKNOW, INDIA JUL 01, 2008 12:00 AM sir, in this year’s Engg. colleges’ survey, you hav ranked BBDNITM, lko. at 28. its not that much good college to deserve that ranking. instead, many good colleges of noida n ghz. are missing . i cant understand. i feel u mint money 4m these inst. to 24 3 of 7 6/7/2010 2:49 PM www. outlookindia. com | http://www. outlookindia. om/articlefullwidth. aspx? 237765 rank them. am i true? do reply.. pranav lucknow PRANAV LUCKNOW, INDIA JUL 01, 2008 12:00 AM “ant to know how much can i depend on this survey of TOP 35” Let me answer and give an unsolicited advice. 10%. The best way to gauge any college is to actually speak with the current students(lot of them) and then make a decision. The ranking process of US universities is much more reliable. I used usnews rankings quite a bit to find out my university. I am not sure about the ranking methodology in India. It is in its infancy and I would not put much trust on that. It is simply a guideline.
GANESAN NJ, USA 23 JUN 30, 2008 12:00 AM 22 Please note that BMS College Of Engineering, Bangalore and BMS Institute Of Technology, Bangalore are different institutions. Please note that you have not mentioned BMSCE in your rankings, but in Top 10 placements in Private Colleges you have mentioned “BMS Inst. , Bangalore” which is NOT possible. It should be “BMS College Of Engineering, Bangalore” Also, do clarify the reason of not including BMS College Of Engineering in the top 35 Private Institutes, where you have written “BMS Institute Of Technology”, which is far behind “BMS College Of Engineering, Bangalore”.
Please rectify the same in the future. SHANTANU BANGALORE, INDIA JUN 29, 2008 12:00 AM Dear sir, For Top 35 private engineerging collegs, AICTE norms are considered or not? In which way the non approval to be considered for admission ? And can I go for admission as per the given info? Thanking you, PS Rao SRINIVASA RAO HYDERABAD, INDIA 21 JUN 29, 2008 12:00 AM 20 Sir, I went through your survey of Top Private Engineering collegs in India for the year 2008. I was quite surprised to see SRM University not occupying any of the top 35 spots. Whether SRM university didnt take part in the survey?. Last year it was ranked 19th.
How come it dropped below 35 this year. Also seeing SASTRA University in rank 10 is an eye sore. SRM university is far better than SASTRA in many aspects. Do rectify the mistakes in your survey. Also reply why premier institutes like MIT-Pune and SRM university skipped out of the survey. AJANTH CHENNAI, INDIA JUN 29, 2008 12:00 AM 19 Sir, The rankings are pathetic. So many good colleges didnt participate in your survey which makes it a weak point. You just cant write off IIT madras and IIT G in their industry interface. They have tie ups with so many companies. The intellectual capital of IIT G is not so bad.
You cant put it in league of colleges like SASTRA. You can see how many research proects are on there. There are so many other errors I can point out. Its too heart breaking and erronous to see BITS PILANI having engineering infrastructure lower than THAPAR,a big mistake. I am totally dissapointed to see this ranking,maybe you should change your faulty methodology or totally stop it. SOUMENDU SINHA PATNA, INDIA JUN 28, 2008 12:00 AM 18 I have done a lot of research on the engineering college rankings. My first impression on the outlook rankings is that they tried their best but missed some important colleges.
Some colleges in the list makes it hard to believe that the rankings are correct. some independent views: 1)Sastra ranked 10th. It is too high a ranking. 2)Amity at 12 is surprising. 3)VIT at 5 is too much to digest. Come on now, atleast RV College is better than VIT. 4)Thapar should be no 2. 5)Top 11 to 20 list is all wrong. 6)Mepco Schlenk cannot be no 16. 7)ICFAI at 19, I almost fainted. How can you it in the top 20, have you gone mad. 8)How can you rank Chaitanya Bharati so low. 9)MS Ramaiah is much better than some of the colleges you have ranked before it. Do something please to get some reasonable rankings in future.
Your list is pathetic. AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 28, 2008 12:00 AM 17 Outlook tried its best, but I believe that the data provided by the colleges are not correct. They have given false data and ruined the reputation of a magazine like outlook. My rerquest to outlook is to go to these colleges and verify the data they are sending, otherwise these rankings look pathetic and not good for a reputed magazine like outlook. regards, AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 28, 2008 12:00 AM 16 the top 15 list should be as followsnot in order of rankings please. This is my independent view 1)MS Ramaiah Bangalore, 2)BMS Bangalore, 3)BITS Pillani, of 7 6/7/2010 2:49 PM www. outlookindia. com | http://www. outlookindia. com/articlefullwidth. aspx? 237765 4)RV College Bangalore, 5)VIT vellore, 6)BIT Sindri, 7)MIT-Pune, 8)Chaitainya Bharati Hyderabad, 9)Manipal Inst of tech, Manipal, 10)Thapar Patiala, 11)Dhirubai Ambani IICT, Gandhinagar, 12)PSG College of Tech, Coimbatore 13)Sathyabhama Chennai. 14)VJTI, Mumbai. 15)Inst of Technology and Mang Gurgaon. AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 28, 2008 12:00 AM 15 Now for the top 10 let me think1. BITS PILLANI. 2. THAPAR, PATIALA. 3. RV COLLEGE, BANGALORE. 4. VJTI MUMBAI. 5. MIT-PUNE. 6.

VIPRAV JAMSHEDPUR, INDIA VJTI, Mumbai and Sardar Patel College of Engineering, Mumbai, both are government colleges and not private institutions. SPB NEW YORK, USA 13 JUN 26, 2008 12:00 AM 12
JUN 26, 2008 12:00 AM Dear Editor, I just simply fail to understand the purpose of printing these rankings when all of the colleges did not respond to the survey. For eg. , a college you ranked say 30 would not have been even 40 if all the colleges would have responded to the survey. Also make sure that all colleges respond to your survey before publishing the rankings in the near future. ABHISHEK SHARMA MUMBAI, INDIA 11 Dear Editor, I noticed some top class private engineering colleges which were ranked within top 25 in 2007 and 2006(if govt and pvt are seperated ) did not appear in 2008 rankings.
Also you did mention below some colleges which did not respond to the survey,BUT I REQUEST YOU TO PUBLISH A COMPLETE LIST OF ALL COLLEGES IN EVERY SECTION WHICH DID NOT RESPOND TO THE RANKINGS 2008 BUT WERE A PART OF TOP 30 COLLEGES in 2007 in the coming issue. ABHISHEK SHARMA MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 25, 2008 12:00 AM 10 To The Editor, OUTLOOK. Dear Sir, I wonder how could 300 professionals working in a few Cities assess the ever changing field of Engineering Education and rank the Colleges functioning across India?! Did anyone or any analyst from ‘Outlook’ make a visit to these Engineering Colleges ever to assess them personally?
Did you take feedback from students, parents, alumni and Members of AICTE-NBA or UGC-NAAC? Without going through the strictly prepared Reports of NACC/NBA it is impossible to identify whcih college holds what tag and how? The data provided to you by the socalled Professional Colleges might not be true! People will not develop trust in Magazines unless they adopt a foolproof system while giving National Rankings to the Professional Colleges. Otherwise a few unworthy Institutions may take the baseless Rankings to their advantage and fool the Public with cheap advertisemnts!
You please organise region wise Survey to take stock of the ground realities before awarding the coveted Rankings. Take the help of Local Media persons while conducting the survey. This will ensure correctness to your statistical data and veracity to your Rankings! Let me give a simple example: There are highly rated Engineering Colleges in and around Guntur and Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh but none of them had figured in your Ranking List?! But parents and students of our region know which College is better and which is not!
When people notice the fact that the names of some of the Colleges which are known for maintaining low academic standards finding place in your Rankings, there is every danger that they may fast change thier very outlook towards the ‘Outlook’now and ever!! Be fair and be realistic!? Srinivas Putta, Vijayawada, A. P. SRINIVAS PUTTA VIJAYAWADA, INDIA JUN 24, 2008 12:00 AM 9 JUN 23, 2008 12:00 AM PSG, Thapar, VIT and Manipal cant be above DAIICT by any means. At least not in pedagogy, Infra and Intellectual capital. Even BIT mesra is below it.. AYUSH RAIPUR, INDIA 8 JUN 23, 2008 12:00 AM
Sir, BMS college of Engineering also did not participate in this year’s rankings. It is BMS Institute of Technology Bangalore, which is different from BMS college of Engineering. But your list of non-participating engineering colleges does not include BMS College of Engg, which is a great surprise to me. AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA 7 Sir, MIT-Pune was ranked No-13 in your list of private engineering colleges in India’2007. This year it does not appear in the list of non-participating institutes(institutes which did not respond to your survey). Moreover I cannot see it in the Top 35 private 5 of 7 6/7/2010 2:49 PM ww. outlookindia. com | http://www. outlookindia. com/articlefullwidth. aspx? 237765 engineering Institues of 2008. There is some mistake in the whole affair. I think MIT-Pune has not responded to your survey, otherwise one of the top ranked Institutes of the country cannot just drop below 35 from the 13th rank. Please also keep in mind that MAEER’s group has three Engineering Colleges1)MIT-Pune (one of the best engineering colleges of the country). 2)MIT College of Engineering(opened in 2001)-relatively new institute. 3)Maharashtra Academy of Engineering-relatively new Institute. Is it so that ither no 2 or three has participated in the survey and you have mistaken it for MIT-Pune. Please clarify. Regards, AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 23, 2008 12:00 AM 6 Sir, MIT-Pune is one of the best engineering colleges of Maharashtra and certainly the best in Pune. I was a lot surprised to see VIT-Pune in the rankings but not MIT-Pune. MIT-Pune is much ahead of VIT-Pune,your rankings of 2007 suggest and which is 100% true. Is it because of the comment of someone last year that made you chnage the ratings or MIT-Pune did not participate in the rankings. Please clarify or I seriously doubt that any research has been done by you.
AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 23, 2008 12:00 AM 5 Sir, Please make some important changes like1) MIT-Pune and BMS College of Engineering did not participate in this year’s rankings. 2) Did SRM Chennai participate in this year’s rankings? Please atleast give some explanantion. I am a great fan of Outlook so please give some reply. AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 23, 2008 12:00 AM 4 JUN 22, 2008 12:00 AM What is the purpose of ranking the engineering colleges if they are not correct. There are lot of errors and no one from outlook is bothering to reply to the queries. I would like to hear some answers from Outlook.
AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA 3 Sir, I saw the rankings for the Private Engineering colleges of India. You have also given the name of Institutes which did not participate in this year’s rankings. But surprisingly it does not contain MIT-Pune and SRM Chennai. Out of the top 20 rankings last year, I did not find MIT-Pune(ranked 13th in India, 2007)and SRM college Chennai, (ranked 19th in India, 2007). It seems you missed MIT-Pune and SRM College in the list of Engineering colleges which did not participate in the rankings. Please confirm and make the correction as soon as possible.
As I am a great fan of Outlook, these errors does not look good. Atleast mention that these two institutes did not participate in the rankings. Otherwise your ranking list does not look correct. A engg college with 13th rank in India cannot just drop below 35 in a year and this is only possible if it did not participate in the rankings. Thanks and Regards, AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 22, 2008 12:00 AM Please let me know if the following institutes participated in the ranking for private engineering colleges: SDM College of Engg Dharwad Mukatam Jha Hyderabad Vasavi College of Engg Hyderabad Thanks, AKASH MUMBAI, INDIA JUN 22, 2008 12:00 AM 1 Sir, Can I have some answers to my queries.
