In Gujarat, Engineering colleges have been popping up like mushrooms in the last few years. It all started after 2009. Education sector is highly rewarding and many private trusts have jumped into the ‘Engineering Bandwagon’ and opened up colleges throughout Gujarat.
This is both good and bad for students. Good in the sense that the students will anyhow get admission into ‘Engineering’ college and bad because many of these colleges lack a good faculty and infrastructure. The number of engineering graduates produced every year is increasing. When I passed 12th and was looking for an engineering seat, most seats were taken and there was hardly any vacant seat in entire Gujarat! Now the scenario has changed- umpteen number of seats go vacant!
Here are the top 5 Engineering colleges in Gujarat in no particular order.
