Abstract

A large number of self-financing engineering colleges in India, which are less than 10 years old, have complained in the recent past that they have failed in attracting talented students for their undergraduate programmes. Some such engineering colleges were even forced to shut down due to poor student strength. Inferior service quality leading to low stakeholder satisfaction is the main reason for poor student strength in these colleges. Considering the ranked engineering colleges as best-in-class organizations, the performance of young engineering colleges are compared with ranked engineering colleges from self-financing category and the gaps have been identified. The practices commonly followed by the young engineering colleges are compared with the practices followed by the best-in-class engineering colleges internationally and ranked engineering colleges in India. Then, the practices that are suitable for young engineering colleges in India but not yet initiated by the college management, have been identified. The practices that are listed in this manner are arranged in a systematic manner and roadmaps have been developed. Young engineering colleges can achieve excellence by following the roadmaps presented in this paper.
