Abstract: The purpose of the paper is to analyse the perceptions on quality management practices in the select engineering educational institutions from the beneficiaries’ perspective. It is accepted fact that there is a need to develop quality-centric educational institutions to sustain in the present competitive and turbulent environment. Unfortunately, at present, a host of engineering educational institutions are neglecting the beneficiary satisfaction in pursuit of their own economic goal. One can adjudge the quality of an institution on the basis of the beneficiary satisfaction.In this regard, for adjudging the quality, the researchers tried to measure the level of difference in the perceptions of beneficiaries’ satisfaction of seven select engineering educational institutions by taking five determinants include teaching-learning process, involvement of teacher towards his job, commitment of teachers in preparing students for other related exams, course work, and facilities. Likert five point rating scale is used to assess the degree of satisfaction. A questionnaire was administered to engineering graduates of seven select engineering colleges in Guntur Dt., AP and one way ANOVA is deployed by using IBM SPSS Statistics 20 to test the level of difference in the perceptions of beneficiaries of various colleges.
