According to a survey carried out by research firm IDC and technology magazine Dataquest, the premier Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur has emerged today as the best technology institute in the country followed by IIT-Delhi.

On a scale of 100, this elite engineering institute has scored 81.9 points, which is closely followed by IIT-Delhi that has scored a close 78.49 points. The six prestigious IITs dominate the list of Top 10 T-Schools survey. The IITs located at Madras, Kanpur, Roorkee and Guwahati took the next four slots in the survey.

"Interestingly, IIIT Hyderabad is the youngest college, set up in 1998, to make it to the Top 10 list. IIT Mumbai did not participate," the survey revealed. While NIT Warangal, is the 11th best technology school in the country, the Delhi Technology University, formerly Delhi College of Engineering (DEC) has occupied the 12th spot.

These engineering and technology colleges were reviewed on several parameters like quality of teaching, placement, industry interface, IT facilities and research papers. Individually, IIT Kharagpur scored high on Human Resource (HR) perception, while IIT Delhi ranked high on placement records.
