A Deemed University is a University which provide higher education and awards academic degrees at Graduate and Post Graduate level on its own. It allows research work to be carried out in various subjects. Deemed University status is provided to these universities by University Grants Commission (UGC) after thoroughly verifying all aspects and norms of the University. It gets deemed status from UGC only when meets all the standards set by the UGC.
Deemed Universities have the autonomy to design their own courses and own syllabus, so that they can develop their unique system of education. Deemed Universities also have the autonomy to set their own guidelines for admission of students as well as collecting fees. Till they develop full fledged Universities, these Universities are linked to some parent or mother Universities. Certificates will be awarded on the name of mother University. UGC also allows certain Universities which reach good standards to award certificates on their own university name. If these deemed universities maintain good standards for long duration they will get the status of full fledged university.
Many students who like to join in these universities have a doubt whether the certificate given by these universities is valid or not. But one thing they have to keep in mind that some of these Deemed Universities out rank some other best universities run by Government of India in their standards. The student have to verify the list provided by University Grants Commission that a particular university in which they are joining is recognized by UGC or not. If it is recognized by the UGC one can blindly join in such deemed university without any problem. In the following article, I am giving a list of top Deemed Universities in India where students can sought high quality engineering education. I am giving addresses and various details of those top Deemed Universities.
