Also, top companies like Microsoft, Facebook, CA, HP, Adobe etc look for students from reputed institutes only. When your resume has a top level highly reputed college as the under graduation college, obviously, you will be given more preference. Even for opportunities like internships, your engineering college’s reputation plays a key role. This is the reason behind why I am stressing so much on the college you choose.

What makes a college good?

This is a difficult question to answer. Various factors effect the statement that a college is good or bad. Some of them include the infrastructure of the college, the teaching staff, the administration, library, cafeteria, sports clubs, literary clubs, laboratories, techno cultural events, the head of the institution, the governing body, funding for the college, research activities inside the campus, industry exposure so on and so forth. Each one of the above indicators play their own prominent role in the reputation of the college.

How do I know if a college is good?

Very simple. Investigate. The only way to know if a college is good or not is to investigate all by yourself. You can do it in various ways. Some of the best methods so far as my knowledge is concerned are:


  • Visit the college, talk to the existing students in that college, talk to the teaching staff of the college and seek their opinion about joining that college.
  • Visit the concerned Aegean College website. Download the AICTE mandatory disclosure and study it carefully.
  • While studying the mandatory disclosure, check the number of Ph.D.s in the branch you wish to opt for and number of staff members currently enrolled for Ph.D.
  • Also, check for the industry alliances and MoUs with other academic institutions.
  • Check if the department you wish to join in a college has any research expertise.
