Computer Science Engineering is a popular stream among students in India and abroad. Computer Science Engineering is not just about software and IT but also about the theoretical and practical aspects of Computer Science. Computer Science Engineering course comprises of mathematics, programming languages, computer architecture, microprocessor systems, numerical computing, database management systems, operating systems, information security and many other topics.

Computer Science Engineering graduates get lucrative placements in technology giants like Wipro, Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services, etc. There are many other multinational and IT companies that recruit computer engineers every year. Pay packages of Computer Engineers are also impressive and depend upon the academic profile of the student and the reputation of the institute. For example, IIT graduates are recruited on much higher salary packages as compared to students from other institutes.

There are many Computer science Engineering institutes in India where one can pursue a course in Computer Science Engineering.

The IITs

IITs are the best Computer science Engineering institutes in the country. Even among the IITs, IIT Bombay is the best when it comes to Computer Science Engineering. Every year, multinational technological behemoths conduct placement drives in the IITs and recruit Computer Science Engineering graduates on extremely lucrative pay packages.

Securing admission into an IIT is a tough nut to crack because admission into IITs is always made on the basis of rank obtained in JEE Advanced. Students qualifying JEE Mains are eligible for appearing in the JEE Advanced examination. In order to get admission in a popular stream like Computer Science Engineering, the student must not only clear the JEE Advanced but also figure high in the All India Merit List.


National Institute of Technology or NIT Warangal and Surathkal also feature among the best Computer science Engineering institutes in the country. Students wanting to secure a seat in the NITs must qualify the JEE Main examination. Qualifying JEE Main is also the ticket to JEE Advanced examination which eventually leads to the IITs.

Other Colleges

Bengal College of Engineering And Technology, Kolkata also comes in the list of good  Computer science Engineering schools in the country. This is an AICTE approved institution and is affiliated to West Bengal University of Technology.

Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, Delhi is also considered to be among the best Computer science Engineering schools. This is an autonomous institute of the Govt. of Delhi and is affiliated to the University of Delhi. Many top MNCs come to this college every year for placements.

Delhi Technological University formerly known as Delhi College of Engineering is one of the premier Computer science Engineering schools of India. This is a Government University offering Bachelor of Technology Degree in 15 engineering streams including Computer Science Engineering. Admission is on the basis of rank obtained in JEE Mains. 85% of the seats are reserved for students who pass their 10+2 examination from a school in Delhi or the National Capital Region.

St. Andrews Institute of Technology and Management, Gurgaon is another reputed engineering college offering an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering.
