This work is based on the extensive analysis of the student expectation from the Present Education System. It is a major focused area for the bright future of the country . Selection of the right educational institution for the student is a crucial decision for the parents, this requires optimizing a number of criteria based on their expectations. .Education the Engineering Colleges in Tamilnadu is considered as sample with Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP). FAHP is applied to find the degree of each criterion of the education institutions. In this study nine kinds of key attributes are used based on expert opinion teachers and academicians of Technical educational institutions. Using these attributes a comparison matrix and triangular membership function have been formed which helps to evaluate the attributes of the present Technical institutions in Tamilnadu.
