Accounting for just about 0.1 percent of the total number of engineering graduates in the country, there has been a recent thrust by the government on increasing the number of engineers from the northernmost state. A step forward in the direction is a new university - the Islamic University of Science & Technology (IUST). Set up in 1994, Government College of Engineering and Technology, Jammu is considered as good as the prestigious NIT Srinagar. The cut-off ranks among institutes that admit through the state exam, are the best in Computer Science, Electronics & Communication and Civil Engineering. Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SKUAST)offers a fine programme in Agriculture Engineering.
