In the decade of eighties there were only the three engineering colleges in the state of Punjab & in ninties some progress was made with  Govt. established  colleges. But in the last dacade lot of PVT colleges has cropped up & figure has crossed 100 in 2011. Here are some prominent colleges of Punjab in PVT sector.



DAV Institute of Engineering & Technology: DAV College Jalandhar was established in the year 2001 & is under the control of DAV managing committee-Delhi. The DAV managing committee has long history of running the educational institutes having hundreds of schools, colleges & professional institutes under its management.


So the college has trusted management, good infrastructure & some industrial tie up. But the faculty is average. The college has come up the ladder due to tight discipline & good placements. The college is situated in the heart of the city & so the good location also adds value to the institute.



  1. Chitkara Institute of Engineering & Technology: Run under the Chitkara Edu Trust the college was set up by a known mathematician of the region. The management won the faith of student community due to scrapping of the management quota seats. This is perhaps the 1st college in Punjab which has surrendered its 33% quota seats to PTU & all the admissions are held on merit basis. Besides the usual studies, the college provides lot of extra curriculum activities.



  1. Chandigarh Engineering College-Landran: The institute has developed good infra & facilities over the period of time. The major attraction for the students is its location which is closer to Chandigarh.



  1. Rayat Bahra Institute of Engg & Biotech: The institute is run by perhaps the biggest group of region in professional education. The group also runs few other institutes at Ropar, Hoshiarpur & HP but the Kharar campus is the most popular due to its close location to Chandigarh.
