IIT Guwahati cracks ‘top 100’ in Times University Rankings
At #87, IIT Guwahati becomes the first and only Indian University in the Times Higher Education list for ‘100 Under 50″ institutions in 2014.
Geared towards young institutions less than 50 years old, the list has a large Asia presence, led by Taiwan’s 4 entries. Within the BRICS, only India and Brazil make a showing, with China, Russia, and South Africa unable to make the cut.
The Original IITs (Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Delhi & Bombay) are over 50 years old and were not considered in the ranking. IIT Guwahati is one of the youngest institutions in the list, having been founded just 20 years ago, in 1994.
