To gain the number one position, IIT-Kharagpur climbed two positions from its earlier tally of 3.

While IIT-Chennai has slipped from the top slot to second position, IIT-Mumbai climbed two spots to occupy the third slot. The premier IIT-Delhi had slid to fourth from No.2 last year, while IIT-Roorkee has jumped two places to fifth spot.

IIT-Kanpur and IIT-Guwahati came in sixth and seventh. While Indian Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, bagged the ninth spot, Institute of Technology of Banaras Hindu University (BHU) was at 10th spot.

The second-tier engineering colleges in the country are also making a mark. Six NITs formerly known as Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) have entered the Top 20 list.
