Let’s admit it, we are obsessed with the IITs. Even if ‘you’ personally are not, your parents probably are. More than 1.2 million students appear for the JEE and only 10,000 of them are able to secure a seat. That’s a success rate of less than 1%. However, don’t get demotivated just yet.
The IITs are great educational institutions within the Indian education context. However, several international engineering colleges rank better than the IITs and have a higher acceptance rate. Here’s a list of five foreign universities that rank better than the IITs. They could be potential destinations for you to pursue your engineering degree:
