Attracting quality faculty is expected to have a strong bearing on expanding research and consultancy activities in NITT and make further improvements to its standing at the national level. The institute is currently placed 11th in NIRF (National Institute Ranking Framework) ranking.

In the absence of a quality CBSE institution in the campus, young faculties who would have otherwise contribute to research and consultancy in a better way by living in the quarters, prefer to travel from the city.

During 2013, the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan was inclined to permit NITT to start a school in its campus under project mode. The institute readied a full-fledged building on the campus facing Tiruchi-Thanjavur National Highway with the expectation that the KV would be sanctioned from the subsequent academic year.

However, the institute did not pursue the project further apprehending financial stress on account of having to meet the recurring and non-recurring expenditure out of its own budget.
