Nimesh Chandra, 31 May 2016

Engineering is about finding pragmatic solutions to problems that the society faces due to climate change, scarcity of resources, aging population and so on rather than only being viewed as designing transportation systems, or aiding in efficient manufacturing. With over 1.5 million engineers churning out every year, engineering in India is said to hold a much appreciated role in organizations. And the professional role that one plays depends on the branch that one studies, though it is not necessary. With the power of easy access to relevant information the choice of a particular engineering specialization for students has become more rational.

The subsequent pages list out the most popular engineering branches with the names of the best institute that offers them. The information is based on the cut-off rank/score in the opening round of admission counselling. For some entrance exams, only closing cut-off is given. Among the most sought after branches, Computer Science, Mechanical and Electronics and Communication Engineering continue to be in the top for several years now. There has been a surge in institutes offering newer disciplines such as Bioscience/Biotech, automation, polymers and material science while plastic, instrumentation & control and power electronics do not seem to be attractive options.
