The Institute has gained rank 395 in World University Ranking globally. This marks an huge improvement of 75 places by the IIT Guwahati, which was ranked 470 in the 2021 edition of the QS World University rankings. The institute said the main reason for this increase is the strong improvement in the ‘Citations per Faculty’ category where IITG has improved from 77.9 in the year 2021 (Global Rank 56) to 94.8 in 2022 (Global Rank 41).
“I congratulate the faculty, students and staff of IIT Guwahati for this remarkable growth in this performance which clearly shows that despite the pandemic, the institute has been working tirelessly to make such a global impact. The institute has improved in Research Citations per Faculty indicating the visibility of research activities of the institute as well as in the Academic Reputation as the major contributors in this increase,” Prof. TG Sitharam, director of IITG, said.
