IIT Hyderabad comes out with flying colours in NIRF 2023

National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), Ministry of Education, Government of India, released the eighth edition of the most-awaited National Institutional rankings on June 05, 2023. IIT Hyderabad has retained its overall NIRF Ranking at 14. For the 8th consecutive year, IITH has maintained its position within the Top 10 ranks (Rank #8) among the technical institutes in the country and as the best among the second-generation IITs. This year IITH is ranked #3 in NIRF-Innovation (Erstwhile ARIIA- Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements). 

Expressing his delight at this attainment, Prof B S Murty, Director, IIT Hyderabad, said, “Today, IITH is a brand of its own and has been able to attract a pool of highly talented students and faculty members to invent & innovate in technology for humanity and make IITH ‘A Dream Destination for every Academician, Researcher & Industry’. This achievement is merely due to the unconditional and unparalleled commitment of the students, staff, faculty members and, more importantly, our alumni.  I would also like to place on record our gratitude for the support and trust of the Ministry of Education that has facilitated our growth. With new interdisciplinary & industry-centric academic programs that are the need of the hour and in line with the NEP-2020 at IITH, I am sure this is just a milestone reached. With the support of such an energetic and enthusiastic team, we will create newer benchmarks in Innovating & Inventing in Technology for Humanity (IITH).”

Thrilled at IITH’s NIRF-Innovation–Rank #3, Prof S Surya Kumar, Dean (Innovation, Translation & Startups), said, “For us at IITH, innovation is not just a specific activity, but about creating an ecosystem supporting the young entrepreneurs all the way from concept to market. This encompasses incubation, academic programs, student cells, IP & technology transfer support etc. We hope these initiatives will encourage more and more students to become entrepreneurs.”

Talking about IITH’s NIRF Journey so far, Dr Sai Santosh Kumar Raavi, Dept. of Physics & Convenor, NIRF at IITH, said, “IITH is the only second-generation IIT that consistently made it into the top 10 engineering institutes in the country. Even this year, we are Top-3 Institute/ IIT in NIRF-Innovation. This is predominantly due to the proactive implementation of best practices. IITH’s score on some parameters, such as faculty-student ratio, faculty qualification, financial resource utilization, patents, and footprint of projects, are comparable to or higher than some of the older generation IITs, that is evident from our sustained & gradually improving performance in NIRF 2023.”
