‘Engineering’. This notoriously educational word is enough to induce fear in the minds of most Indian teenagers. In India, engineering isn’t just some random field or qualification. It is a highly anticipated degree that is expected to be the savior of most dilapidated and middle-class homes and maybe even brings the dead back from its grave! In nutshell, ‘Engineering’ degree in India is nothing less than a God’s. With such incredibly kooky competition involved to gain admission to engineering colleges every year, needless to say, most of us have become an unexpected part of this huge rat-race. Now that we are an inevitable part of this system, I think it’s better to start looking at the silver linings than to sit back and curse our stars. The first step towards achieving our goal (gaining admission to a top engineering college, that is) is to have a look at the best engineering colleges of any particular city. This article takes a leaf out of the very same book. Based on the MHT-CET(Maharashtra State Engineering Entrance Exam) cutoffs, the quality of education and opportunities offered, here’s a list of the top engineering colleges in Mumbai for your Bachelors Of Engineering(B.E) or Bachelors of Technology(B.tech) degree:-
