The 15th T-School annual survey gives ample insights into the tech education landscape in India and unravels key dynamics in terms of the skills the Tech Schools are creating for the IT industry and their standing in terms of academic excellence, placements, infrastructure et al. The survey is aimed in such a way that it determines the Top-Technology Schools (B.E, B.Tech or similar level graduate technical course) in the country and ranks them on a list of important parameters.

Survey Methodology

The first step followed was to reach out to a wide base of T-schools across the country formally by inviting them to participate in the Dataquest annual Top T-School survey. Upon confirmation to participate, a structured questionnaire was sent out to the designated SPOC based on the PACE framework. There were over 30 questions capturing inputs about the T-school with respect to Placement-Academics-Campus and Engagement. Adequate time was allocated for the institutes to send in their filled nominations. For any claim, a supporting proof was also sought. There were over 500 nominations received, which were scrutinized by our team on various parameters including completeness and correctness of information submitted. The submissions were independently verified through a random check process, with over 30% of the entries received put to scrutiny as per the market research code of ethics. The quantitative inputs received and verified were then analysed wherein the absolute data was normalised to relative data in order to compare the parameters across the participating institutions. For each of the above parameter segments a final score was achieve which was then factored with the pre-defined weights as per below, to arrive at the overall score of each participating T-school. The institutes were then ranked with the highest score across all parameters ranking at the top. The rankings were also arrived by category and region for the T-schools.

One of the trend which we have seen recently is of industry collaboration. The private T-schools are now working closely with the industry to prepare the industry-ready workforce.

While government colleges are supplying the necessary skill sets to students, the private engineering colleges are also playing a key role in empowering the IT sector. Although automation will take up a lot of jobs in future but it is believed that many jobs will still be there for skilled graduates who are equipped with right talent and skills.
