KL figures at top 4 among India's private and deemed universities offering undergraduate engineering programs in the magazine's survey. The survey was aimed at unraveling the most trusted university brands in India's technology education.

The survey, which evaluates premier engineering institutions, has two parts:

  1. Online voting by students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and general public
  2. Assessment by a panel of eminent personalities

In both parts, the survey employs a set of five objective parameters for evaluation: career advancement, academic ecosystem and outcomes, enrichment of learning environment, goodwill legacy and reputation, and future ready academic infrastructure

Scores obtained in both parts were aggregated to arrive at the final ranking for each institution. Click here to check the rankings of engineering universities region wide and state wide in India.
