The Institution of Engineers (India) [IEI] over the past 100 years has established its rich legacy towards the cause of promotion and advancement of the science, practice and business of Engineering through a multitude of activities. The number of academic institutions offering a degree or equivalent program in engineering/ technology has grown up significantly over the last few years. There is a need to identify the leading Engineering Educational Institutions for others to provide better and effective engineering education to the seekers. In view of the above, it has been directed to institute ‘Engineering Education Excellence Awards’ with the prime objective of recognizing the best Educational Institutions in the field of engineering & technology across the country.
