Best Colleges By Program

The EDU-RAND Rankings are intended to guide you, the student, seeking admission to an engineering college or university based on the stream of interest to you. Like the college rankings, the streamwise rankings are based on four components: employability (weighted 50%), research productivity (25%), faculty qualifications (15%) and fill rate (10%).Each component is scored on a zero to ten scale (as explained in the main methodology section). The faculty qualifications and research productivity components are measured at the college level, not specifically for each stream, using the same values as in the college rankings. Employability and fill rate are measured specifically in each stream where data are available. The top 10 colleges in each stream are ranked individually, but colleges that lack employability data for the stream are not considered in reporting the top 10. The EDU-RAND scores and rankings are a tool to help you select a college that best meets your educational objectives. Owing to a number of reasons like faculty and industrial backing among others, it may happen that a college ends up being very good for one particular program or another. Conversely a college that might have a better overall ranking, may lag behind others when it comes to a specific program. In this list we feature India's best colleges by specializations.


Chemical Engineering encompasses diverse fields like petroleum refining, fertilizer technology, processing of food and agricultural products, synthetic food, petrochemicals, synthetic fibres, coal and mineral based industries, and the prevention and control of environmental pollution.

The scope of civil engineering includes the study of construction techniques, structures of various forms such as buildings, roads, bridges, seaports and airports and other infrastructure works. Civil engineers also deal with systems that are linked to infrastructure, such as water resources, transportation, environmental engineering, etc. Know more about the program wise methodology here

Computer science

Computer Science and Engineering covers theoretical and systems (also called applied) courses. Theoretical computer science courses include data structures, algorithm design and analysis, formal languages and automata theory, discrete mathematics, theoretical computer science, etc. The systems’ side includes courses on computer architecture, system and application software (including operating systems, compilers, database management systems, etc.), computer networks, internet technology and mobile computing.

Mechanical Engineering (ME) applies the principles of engineering, physics and materials science for the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is concerned with the design, operation and maintenance of machines and their components, mechanisms, machine tools, manufacturing systems and processes, components of thermal power systems including internal combustion engines and turbo machinery, solar energy, heat transfer, air-conditioning, refrigeration and industrial engineering including production planning and control.

University College of Engineering Kakinada

Get Campus Guidance

University College of Engineering Kakinada (UCEK) is an autonomous college , established in 1956.


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%.
