Careers360 University Rating has rated 24 best public engineering universities in India 2013. Out of this, 4 public engineering universities received 5 stars, 3 received 4 stars, 5 public engineering universities received 3 stars, 2 stars were given to 5 public engineering institutes and 1 star was received by 3 public engineering universities of India. 

Not many of us would know that the blueprint for the establishment of IITs, the topmost public engineering universities of India - the NR Sarkar Committee Interim Report (1946) suggested MIT in USA as a model institution for setting up four higher technical institutes in East, West, South and North India. Even after six decades IITs are yet to attain the academic diversity that MIT boasts off, let alone the stature. But the top public engineering universities in India are still the most sought after places for pursuing B. Tech/ BE. Give a few years and one would see the new Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs) too in the premier list.
 
In terms of research, IITs are the best performers among the top public engineering universities of India. IIT Kharagpur is unparalleled in publication count and applied patents in India. ISM Dhanbad scores well on both granted and filed patents. The 7 mature IITs aggregate to 45,000 publications in last 12 years in the Web of Science database. 

The state public engineering universities of India have made no mark barring the venerable Anna University, which stands out. The entire list at three-star and two-star is monopolized by the venerated National Institutes of Technology. The state public engineering universities, it seems are merely performing an affiliating function. The rating list throws a huge concern about the quality of engineering universities that are affiliated to such nondescript universities.
