The EDU RAND 2015 rankings, now two years in the running, are based on objective measurements of four components of quality – employability, research productivity, faculty qualifications and fill rates. The former two, (employability and research productivity) are measures of outcomes. Faculty qualifications are measures of the quality of a key input to the learning experience, while fill rates take in account the students’ demand for education at the institution. All four components are scored on a scale of zero to ten, with ten amounting to the best performance on each outcome and zero the worst. The ever-increasing demand for highly specialized skills has led to a spurt in the setting up of engineering colleges across the country. In order to pick the right educational institution, Pick A College has been developed to enable prospective engineering students to access a platform wherein an accurate assessment of colleges in India is presented. Therefore, if you want to become an engineer, you have the ability to pick any institution from the list of 10 top engineering colleges in the country.

This year's rankings are based on objective measurements of four components of quality: employability, research productivity, faculty qualifications, and the fill rate. Two of these, employability and research productivity, are measures of outcomes. One, faculty qualifications, measures the quality of a key input to the learning experience. And, one – fill rate, measures students' demand for education at the institution. Each of these four components is scored on a scale of zero to ten. Ten represents the best performance on each component and zero represents the worst. The weights on each component were chosen through a statistical process that we explain later. The weights are: employability – 50%, research productivity – 25%, faculty qualifications – 15% and fill rate – 10%.Know more
