List of Top University for Computer Science ( CSE )

Note: The list is more applicable for students who would like to pursue higher education in CSE and related areas (MTech/MS/PhD). To some extent useful for BTech/BE too.

Ranking is majorly based on factors such as Faculty, Placements, Campus life and Research opportunities.

IISc, IIT Bombay
IIT Delhi
IIT Madras
IIT Kanpur
IIIT Hyderabad
IIT Kharagpur
IIT Roorkee
IIT Guwahati
IIT Hyderabad, BITS Pilani
NIT Warangal, NIT Trichy, ISI Kolkata
IIIT Delhi, IIIT Bangalore
IIT-BHU (doesn’t have a separate MTech/MS course in CSE)
IIT Gandhinagar, IIT-ISM Dhanbad
BITS Goa, BITS Hyderabad
IIT Indore, IIT Ropar, NIT Surathkal
IIT Patna, IIT Mandi
IIT Jodhpur, IIT Bhubaneshwar, NIT Rourkela, NIT Allahabad
NIT Calicut, NSIT, DTU
IIIT Allahabad, Other old NITs, Other new IITs, Jadavpur University
Other old IIITs, DAIICT, BIT Mesra, IIEST Shibpur, COE Pune
Some other renowned institutes are - CMI, IMSc and TIFR. In terms of research (especially theoretical computer science), these are on par with IITs, NITs, IIITs and BITS.
Colleges such as VIT, Manipal, Thapar, SRM, etc. can be ranked after these only (just my opinion).
I hope I haven't missed out any college which deserves to be in the top 20.
All the best to those seeking admissions in CSE branch :) Cheers!!
