Getting into a top tier engineering college in India is very difficult. Every year, only a handful of students among the lakhs of aspirants are actually able to get admission into these colleges. Although this can be disheartening to every student to not be able to get an admission after all that hard work, it is not the end of your career and you should never think that getting into an IIT is the only way to be successful in life. It’s true that getting into an IIT or the topmost NITs gives you an edge over other students, as you have the privilege of better facilities and infrastructure, but you can do equally well in a 2nd or 3rd tier college if you are determined.

Satya Nadella never went to an IIT, yet he is the CEO of Microsoft Corporation and hundreds of IIT graduates work under him, and he is not the only example. There are several other people like him. So getting an IIT tag is not what makes a person successful, but how you utilize and spend those four years that are provided to you definitely do.

Apart from IITs and NITs, there are several other good engineering colleges in India, and you can consider them for admission. They are listed below –

  • Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani
  • Anna University, Chennai
  • Jadhavpur University, Kolkata
  • IIIT Hyderabad
  • Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra
  • College of Engineering, Pune
  • Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore
  • RV College of Engineering, Bengaluru

If you are unable to get an admission in IITs and NITs, these are some of the colleges you can apply for. Among these, BITS Pilani is considered to be almost equal to the IITs in terms of faculty, infrastructure, and other facilities, but getting an admission Is difficult too.

 

All other colleges are also very good if you wish to pursue Engineering in any of them and some of them are especially known due to a specific branch being very good in these colleges.

If you are not able to get admission in these colleges too, don’t lose heart. It’s not the end of the world. If you are really passionate about Engineering and the stream you wish to study for, you will excel in any college, just follow your heart and work hard. And whichever college you get, choose a branch of your choice, because that’s what you are going to study for the next four years.

If you don’t want to pursue Engineering, there are some other great career options too. If they suit you, you can opt for these courses as well. The options I am listing below, have great career opportunities and you should check them out if you are interested –

  • BCA (Bachelor of Computer Applications)
  • Arch (Bachelor of Architecture)
  • Merchant Navy
  • Commercial Pilot Training
  • Hotel Management
  • Design (Bachelor of Design)
  • Filmmaking and Video Editing
