vit university logo vit university campusVIT is always a very hot topic of debate. At one side as far as rankings go it is one of the top private colleges in the country. But it also has a lot of negative feedback, with people claiming that VIT pays money to get its rankings. (See this article about the “negative side” of VIT) If we look at engineering colleges rankings released by different agencies, VIT is present under top 10 engineering colleges of India


Engineering colleges ranking 2014 and 2015 based on Nielsen survey

While the IITs continue to dominate the top 10 slots, IIT Kanpur upstages IIT Delhi to reclaim its position as the country’s best engineering college. BITS, Pilani and VIT University, Vellore are the only 2 private institutions among the top 10. As can be seen from the list, VIT has actually moved up in rankings. But it is surprising and downright hilarious that IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi and IIT Madras do not even feature in this list! Therefore it does not come across as very reliable. One of the reasons is that sometimes institutes do not submit their data/applications to such rankings bodies. The other reason, perhaps is better guessed at than said aloud.
