Best Engineering Colleges in Mumbai

Choosing a good college is really important as a good education is the base of a strong career. When choosing an engineering college, it is essential to know what stream you will be choosing. After you choose the stream that you love, choose 3 other streams that you can settle for if you are not eligible for the college of your choice. Now, you can check the pros and cons of each college that is on your list. Some important things to consider are the college infrastructure and facilities, the brand name, the teacher-student ratio, the placement record, etc. You should also check if you are eligible for scholarships and financial aid. If you can, then you should go to the college that you are considering applying to and talk to the students and learn from their experiences. If you can talk to the teachers also it will be good. Another thing to remember is that you should not choose a college, just because it has a good reputation; and is well-known because a college could be known for a particular department like electronics and mechanical, but if you are interested in civil and decide to go to this college, you can be disappointed later. 

Here is the list of the Top 10 engineering colleges in Mumbai, which will help you make an informed decision:
