Default India's top 10 tech schools of 2009



IIT Kharagpur is the best tech school in India, according to an IDC survey of 111 engineering colleges across India.Seven National Institutes of Technology (earlier called Regional Engineering Colleges), made it to the Top 30 T-Schools list compared to only four in 2007-08. Due to the good placement track record of NITs, the HRD Ministry is proposing to convert some of them into IITs.

Interestingly, while the average annual salaries of IIT graduates registered a drop of 5% to Rs 5.88 lakh, average salary of NIT graduates improved 6% to Rs 4.36 lakh. Amongst IITs, IIT Kharagpur scored highest on HR perception but it was IIT Delhi that ranked the highest on placement records. Economic slowdown in 2009, however, did have an impact on placements across all tech schools. Placements across T-schools in 2009 fell to 73%, from a high of 84% in 2007-08, the the T-School 2009 survey said.
