Engineering Colleges that are making News in Odisha


By Himanshu Guru: While the international media portrays Odisha as a symbol of poverty, the Engineering Education and the trained professionals convey the other picture of Odisha on the global arena. Students, who pass out from some top Engineering Colleges in Odisha, have been placed in top IT companies in India and abroad, bringing laurels to the state.

We feel it to be a great honor to tell about some Engineering colleges that are making news in Odisha. This is not a list about the top Engineering colleges of Odisha in order; rather all of them have their own specialties and glorious story to depict.

We have compiled several lists of Engineering Colleges of India that are making news in Odisha provided by different media houses, experts, students and their views in this regard. We apologise to other Colleges that are either close or at par with this list. But we had to list a few only on the basis of several considerations.

In this nexus, if this list can be of some help to the emerging engineers, that will be great.
