The institute offers six graduate B.Tech programs viz computer science & engineering (cse), electronics & communications engineering (ece), electrical engineering (ee), electrical & electronics engineering (eee), mechanical engineering (me), and civil engineering (ce).

Location: Bhubaneshwar, Orissa

Joining Essentials: A valid score and rank in the JEE examination conducted by the central government.

Choosing the best engineering college

The priceless question is best answered from within, believe experts. Choice is made by thorough examination of strengths, weaknesses, and prevailing conditions at any given point in time.

“All colleges possess academically qualified teaching faculty, onus should be on students to master engineering effectively. Reputation of colleges is directly proportional to academic reputation of students. So, carefully choose your engineering specialisation,” advises Dr Krishna Rao who is professor and head of department of mechanical engineering at a Karnataka engineering college.

This means that the key to choosing effectively, and succeeding in engineering lies directly in eliminating ‘engineering doubt’. This is done through thorough evaluation of skills before even thinking about engineering.
