A good number of models are available in the literature that guides Engineering Colleges in achieving excellence. These models indicate all the possible domains that contribute to the overall quality in engineering colleges irrespective of category. In the recent past, a large number of young engineering colleges from self-financing category in India have admitted that they have failed in attracting sufficient number of students. These young colleges may not be able to concentrate on all the dimensions prescribed by the existing models of excellence due to their limited resources. Hence, an attempt is made to develop another model of excellence, especially for the young colleges, by (i) treating the top-ranked engineering colleges in self-financing category as best-in-class organizations (ii) comparing the performance of young engineering colleges with the top-ranked engineering colleges and identifying the gaps (iii) analyzing the influence of various dimensions of quality on the present standing of the top-ranked and non-ranked private engineering colleges using Regression Analysis (iv) testing the Regression Models using Cross-validation. The model proposed in this paper can definitely help in improving the overall quality in the young engineering colleges from self-financing category at minimum possible cost. The improved quality would ultimately bring higher satisfaction among its stakeholders which in turn helps the colleges in attracting students further.
