MHRD ranked IIEST Shibpur 20th in India - Sunday, June 19, 2016 at 09:47


It gives me utmost pleasure to share with you the news that, taking cognizance of our appeal, the MHRD has made an upward revision of the rank of IIEST; the Institute is now ranked 20 amongst the Engineering Institutes in India with an aggregate score of 70.35 out of 100 in the National Institutional Ranking Framework. Our revised RPC (research score) is 83.07 out of 100 which will modify our research ranking to 8.

I would wholeheartedly like to thank Hon'ble Minister, MHRD Mrs. Smriti Zubin Irani, and all other MHRD officials, and the chairperson and officials of NBA who are looking after NIRF. This correction of our rank to 20 will help our students make a conscious decision.

My students have helped me very much during the discussions with MHRD and I am very happy to see their devotion to IIEST.

Howeve there is no scope of complacency and our ranking will surely improve from 20 with a much higher score next year.

Also we are recruiting 80 new faculty members in the coming academic session for our prospective students which will further enrich teaching and research of IIEST considerably.

Overall, we are expecting a positive scenario, next year when the reforms of transformation of BESU to IIEST are expected to bear fruit.

Best wishes,

Director,  IIEST Shibpur

Good to see the ranking. It is a good achievement. But somehow IIEST is lagging for Brand Making even after all these achievement. All the time we observed the same and it is still continuing. Even today also if we say IIEST, people asking what is that??? Is it a pvt institute or govt institiute?

Good timely action and follow up by GAABESU.
It's also reassuring to see the 'Babus' in New Delhi actually listen and correct their goof-offs.
Kudos to all involved.

Very much delighted to see the deserving position of IIEST,Shibpur among top 20 Engineering Institutes in India. Kudos to the Director Dr. Ajoy Kumar Ray & his team for taking up the matter with MHRD & pursuing the ranking rectification process.Hope the institute will improve its ranking further in the coming days. However, there should not be any room for complacency. I would like to add that as per the recent "The Week-Hansa" research survey published in The Week issue dated 19.06.16, IIEST,Shibpur has secured 19th rank among Engineering Colleges in India.

It's a great achievement for IIEST and credit should be given to the leaders, stakeholders and the Director. Further to that my opinion would be to publish the news in national level news paper so that fresh student can decide to join in this session.

Highly delighted to see the actions by our Administrator to get the ranking to a deserving 20. As the Director tells us that this is not the time for complacency, we need to get it better and be the "Institute to Go to" for the new brilliant school leaving students. Sjow the world that We Can Do it, and follow the slogan "Just Do It".

It is nice to know that MHRD has updated the ranking based on the revised information. Although, the ranking of 20A is much much better than the one MHRD erroneously provided earlier, I think we can and we will better next time, specially when the "pickacollege" has placed IIEST at 13. Thanks to all who took time to pursue this with the MHRD and got the ranking corrected
