Oldest Engineering colleges in India

India possesses a glorious educational background and heritage when it comes to Knowledge and Learning.

India was a land that fascinated foreigners from immemorial. They always wondered about the legacies and developments owned by this particular country.

The presence of educational institutions such as ‘Nalanda‘ and ‘Taxila‘ universities bear testimony to the age-old cultural treasures of knowledge of India.

Numerous manuscripts and scriptures also add to the fact that India was originally a land of hidden gems of wisdom. It is from this unparalleled supremacy in learning, many of the educational institutions gained roots in India.

It is somewhat interesting to note that the history of Engineering Colleges in India dates back to the post-independence era.
