Data Mining is the crucial step to find out previously unknown information from huge relational databases. Many techniques and algorithms are there in data mining, namely Association rules, clustering, and classification and prediction techniques. Each of the techniques holds its particular characteristics and behavior. In this paper, the authors proposed a new method with prime focus on clustering technique. The database for the specific set of students was collected. The clustering is made on some detailed manner and the results were produced. The clustering algorithm used here is the K-Means clustering algorithm, to find the nearest possible and cluster the similar group. The advantage of the proposed methodology is that, the cluster groups can be controlled, modified and accessed with ease. The dataset experimented contained 180 records with 63 attributes. The cluster group enables the dataset to be visualized in multiple dimensions with ease of access. The experimental analysis showed how the K-Means algorithm can be used especially to improve engineering students performance in higher education.
