Because of the excellent performance of the students of IIT Guwahati in all the fields of study and research, guided by the dynamic faculty members and with full support of the non-teaching employees, IIT Guwahati could feature in the coveted list of Top-100 young universities (under 50 years of age) of the world selected by the Times Higher Education (THE) magazine. IIT Guwahati is the only Indian entry to this elite list. With this India has joined the league of Top 100 for the first time. Faculty members and the PhD students have been able to demonstrate substantial intrinsic merit of their research. Also some research- activities have excellent connection to Industrial problems.
I invite all prospective employers of our students to visit IIT Guwahati and to participate in the on-campus placement process.
