THE National Institute of Technology - Tiruchy (NIT-T) is now planning to apply for 'Institute for Eminence' (IoE) tag by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), so as to evolve into an institution of world class standard. The team, which was formed for National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF) in the institute, will present their ideas for taking it further. The UGC has come up with guidelines for declaration of Government Educational Institutions as 'Institute of
Eminence' in order to help em-power the higher educational in-stitutions to become world-class teaching and research institu-tions. This was announced by Un-ion Finance Minister Arun Jait-ley during his budget speech, in 2016. The Minister said that an enabling regulatory architecture will be provided to ten public and private institutions respectively to emerge as world-class teaching and research institutions. The present guidelines suggest that Government institutions, in-cluding Central Universities, Government-owned and con-trolled Deemed Universities, IIT,
lilt NIT IISER, IIM, State Uni-versities, set up under a law made by the Legislative Assembly of a State, can apply for the IoE tag. One of the major eligiblility criteria as per the guidelines was that the institutions should be one among the top five hundred, based on the internationally recognised ranking framework, such as the world renowned mag-azine Times Higher Education World University Rankings or Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) or Shanghai'sJiao Tong Univerisity (SITU). NIT-T has secured 228 th rank in the overall category under QS University Ranking - Asia 2018, that was released on October 17, 2017. About 600 universities from 17 countries participated in the QS ranking. Speaking at the sidelines of an 'Entrepreneurship Development Programme' in the campus, on Monday, Director of NIT-T, Mini Shaji Thomas said, "We are not in the lead to apply for a world ranking, so this time we got a mail from QS Asia ranking team that they are inducting new uni-versities into the ranking and we applied." The ranking was based on academic and industry perceptions.
