From Rs 6,000 per annum at Pondicherry Engineering College to nearly Rs 3.7 lakh per annum at NIIT University, the cost of engineering education varies substantially across the country. Since nearly 0.8 million of the 1.01 million seats are in the unaided category, the average cost of pursuing a BTech is at least Rs 4 -6 lakh for a full programme, a figure beyond the reach of a majority of aspirants.

Bank loans mitigate the impact to some extent but institutes too offer a range of scholarships and fellowships to enable deserving candidates to pursue their education. Here's a look at the kind assistance one can get from the 70-plus Deemed Universities that offer engineering education in the country. Of the 130 Deemed Universities, about 70 offer BE/BTech programmes and nearly 29 of them offer some type of scholarship. Here's the lowdown:
