The six top engineering colleges of Andhra Pradesh together achieved a placement rate of just 52 percent for the BTech batch that was enrolled from 2016 to 2020, a Careers360 analysis has found.

The engineering colleges in AP that were ranked by the education ministry’s National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF 2021) were considered for the analysis. As part of the ranking exercise, participating institutions submit data on intake or number of seats, actual enrollment, graduate students, and those placed. For the latest 2021 rankings, NIRF considered data from the 2020 round of final placements for the four-year BTech batch.

The top engineering college in AP was ranked 50th on the NIRF 2021 rankings for engineering. These were the six AP colleges to be ranked among the top 200 in India by the NIRF:
