There has been 800 registrations within a day of opening the portal for faculty appointments at the National Institute of Technology - Tiruchi.

“There were several calls from prospective candidates of Indian origin in other countries, besides applicants from across the country. The response is good and the appointment of 177 faculties to the positions of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor in the 18 departments will stand the Institute in good stead to strengthen its position in NIRF (National Institute Ranking Framework),” said NIT-T Director Mini Shaji Thomas.

The NIT-T is in the 11th position in NIRF this year. Research and consultancy output will witness a quantum rise when permanent faculties are in place. The existing faculty can also apply for promotion to higher positions in the open competition. There will be scope for bringing about improvements in every parameter to scale up the position in NIRF, Dr. Mini Shaji Thomas said. The Institute currently has 217 permanent faculties on rolls. The large-scale appointments are going to be made almost after a decade.

A number of faculty positions were filled during 2008. After that, the Institute has been managing the teacher-student ratio of 1:12 through appointment of temporary faculties.

The process of appointment will be spread out over the next five to six months. In all likelihood, permanent faculties will be posted to the vacant positions by the start of next academic year, she said.
