Engineering/Technology in UG or PG is one of the most pursued courses in India. The country produces the highest number of Engineering graduates every year. According to The All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) report for 2019 by the Ministry of Human Resources, 38.52 lakh students have enrolled in engineering programs across various colleges in India.

Some of the most premium engineering institutes are located in India. Most of these colleges are either IITs or NITs. To get admission into one of these Top Engineering Colleges In India, the candidate must have appeared in JEE Main (for NITs) and JEE Advanced (for IITs). Every year, more than 2 million students register for JEE main, making it almost impossible for 80% of the students to appear to secure admission at one of these institutes. So, these students opt for tier-2 government or private colleges in major cities.
