A large number of private entrepreneurs have started self-financing engineering colleges in order to meet the youngsters’ desire of settling early in life by acquiring engineering degree. A good number of colleges have had bitter experiences recently in attracting the students for their engineering programmes and then they realized the importance of maintaining quality in their programmes. Various governing bodies and agencies like ISO, NBA have developed their own models and suggested a few domains (dimensions) to the engineering colleges for developing quality. Colleges can build quality by concentrating on these domains, provided they are aware of the practices to be followed for each item falling under those dimensions. This paper tries to identify the unique practices followed in a few high performing self-financing engineering colleges in India. Quality indicators have been identified through literature review on High-Performance Organizations. 15 top ranked self-financing engineering colleges have been listed out for identifying the unique practices, by referring to the magazine Outlook. Unique practices followed with respect to the quality indicators identified have been composed through structured interviews and discussions with various core groups & stake holders of these colleges. The unique practices identified and short listed through this study may be highly useful for the authorities of self-financing engineering colleges to bring quality in its working.
