The importance and antiquity of education in Kerala is underscored by the state’s ranking as among the most literate in the country. Education in Kerala had been promoted during British rule in India by Catholic and other Christian missionaries who were keen on providing education to all sections of society and strengthening of women, without any kind of discrimination. Now with the enormous IT growth engine almost centred around the other three southern states, Kerala never felt the need to augment its technical education system. Only recently, with the emergence of Cochin and Trivandrum as IT services hub, the state has begun to augment its capacity. In the last five years very good colleges have come up in the private sector. so if you are interested in pursuing higher education from W.B then here is list of Top 10 Engineering Colleges In Kerala 2014 :
