A college may be classified as government run, private unaided, or private aided. A government college receives full funding from the Government of Karnataka, while a private unaided college receives no funding from the government. In a private aided college, one or more of its courses receives partial funding from the government. An autonomous college enjoys academic independence which gives it the freedom to revise the syllabus with time and follow a schedule which is more suitable for the set curriculum. Almost all engineering colleges in Karnataka are affiliated to VTU, notable exceptions being University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering, National Institute of Technology Karnataka and Manipal Institute of Technology.
