My greetings to all of you on the occasion of the commencement of the new Placement Session of IIIT Guwahati. Placement Session is a special time in the calendar of any technical Institute. I hope the ensuing Placement Session helps IIIT Guwahati to reach out to their well-wishers successfully.
Though very young, IIIT Guwahati is gradually becoming a contender in research and higher education at the national level. In IIIT Guwahati, the undergraduates receive sound technical grounding with other supporting knowledge, including soft skills. IIIT Guwahati places emphasis on research and this reflected in the number of publications that the Institute produces every year. This emphasis certainly has a positive impact on the quality of teaching. Here, the students are further exposed to other areas through their courses in basic sciences and humanities. The talent IIIT Guwahati nurtures is unique, and I’m sure companies that work with cutting edge technologies will seek these well deserving students.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite all corporates, working at the forefront of Information and Communication Technology, to visit IIIT Guwahati (physically or virtually) for their recruitment drives.
It is my pleasure to invite all organizations to visit IIIT Guwahati (physically or virtually) and participate in our current campus placement season. IIIT Guwahati is one of the twenty IIITs set up by the Govt. of India in partnership with State Govt. and corporate partners. Our Institute, along with the other IIITs is recognized as an Institute of National Importance through the August 2017 IIIT-PPP Act of Parliament. IIITG has as its partners, the Governments of India and Assam, TCS, Srei Infrastructure Finance, Oil India, and Amtron. In the short period of our existence, we have been able to create a teaching and research environment as good as the best in the country. Our syllabi takes the best from the IIIT and IIT systems and from world-wide trends. We have 46 faculty members, all of whom have Phds. Their PhDs are from IITs, other leading Institutions of the country, and from Universities abroad. We have a strong PhD programme with 45 full time scholars, and 48 part-time scholars. We also have online M.Tech programmes for working professionals, in CSE and Communications and Signal Processing. Our Institute obtained a rank of 66 in the NIRF ranking of 2020 in the Engineering category. Besides building a world class institution, our mission is also to give a boost to the development of the ICT industry in Guwahati. The upcoming IT Park next to our campus near the airport will be one of the vehicles for this development. Our campus is at Bongora, Assam which is located just 4 KMs away from Guwahati Airport.
I am confident that our students will live up to your expectations and they will become assets in your organization in the years to come. I once again invite you to join our campus placement programme.
