Top Engineering Colleges in Karnataka 2019

Karnataka is home to some of the best professional education colleges in India. In this post, I’ve listed down some of the best engineering colleges in Karnataka. Apart from the names of colleges, I’ve also provided relevant details such as – list of courses, eligibility criteria, duration and admission process.

Engineering Colleges in Karnataka

Engineering is a very popular choice among 12th Science passed students in Karnataka. Engineering and Medicine – these are probably the most sought after professions in this state.

 

Each year, hundreds of thousands of students appear for engineering entrance exams and apply for admission. Many of them manage to find their way into a decent engineering college. Only a handful of them manage to secure admission into the best colleges in Karnataka.

 

The harsh reality is that many students end up securing admission into colleges that are not well-equipped in terms of infrastructure, faculty and amenities. Thanks to reforms in education policies, it has become relatively easy for private entities to start an engineering college.

 

This has resulted in private engineering colleges popping across Karnataka in the past few years. This trend, like a coin, has two faces. On one side, many students are able to realize their dream of pursuing engineering courses through these colleges.

 

On the other hand, some colleges are so bad that they fare badly when it comes to parameters such as infrastructure, amenities and faculty. Such colleges do more harm than good to a student’s life and career.

 

What I’m trying to say is that – you must give adequate attention to the quality of the college you are trying to secure admission in. Before securing admission, you must thoroughly assess parameters such as quality of the infrastructure, placement record, availability of amenities and quality faculty.

 

The quality of the college and its reputation will have a profound effect on the path of your career. For example – the IIT tag can take you places and give your career a boost.

 

Before heading to the meat of the matter – list of engineering colleges in Karnataka – let us check out some basic details about the engineering education scene in Karnataka. Here are the details –

Different types of engineering colleges

There exists three main types of engineering colleges in Karnataka. They are –

  1. Government engineering colleges
  2. Private engineering colleges
  3. Aided engineering colleges

 

This classification has been carried out on the basis of the entity that owns the college. Government colleges are owned, funded and operated by the state Government. The Government has tasked the DTE with carrying out administrative tasks associated with these colleges.

 

Private colleges are also known as self financing colleges. They are owned, funded and managed by private charitable trusts and non-profit organizations. Aided colleges receive partial funding from the state Government.
