Figuring in the top list in all five categories in NIRF 2018 ranking, IIT Kharagpur Director Partha Pratim Chakrabarti has said it is great to see the institution tops in architecture and law. Chakrabarti said in an official Facebook post, "IIT Kharagpur is the only Institute to be ranked in the top list in all 5 categories for which it was considered." Here's more.
"Overall (5), Engineering (4), Management (7), Architecture (1), Law (4). This shows our unique strength as an overall Institution in the strong competition from specialized Institutes like IIMs, SPAs, NLUs, and metro-based IITs," the director said. He said it remained great to see IIT KGP topped in Architecture and in law in spite of Schools of Planning and Architecture and the National Law Universities.
Meanwhile, the Jadavpur University ranked 13 in the overall ranking category and sixth among universities category, JU Vice-chancellor Professor Suranjan Das said. "While we are happy that JU's record in research and academics has been acknowledged, I think we missed a few points on the two issues of public perception and paving more amenities for the differently-abled," he said.
Calcutta University's Vice-chancellor Sonali Chakravarti Banerjee said, "Having a rich past and track record of the high academic standard including scientific research country-wide, CU, which has got 14 ranking among universities, will strive to reach a higher rank in the next year." The third edition of the National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF) of the HRD Ministry of colleges, institutions, and universities was released yesterday.
