IIIT Guwahati

I am now involved with the admin of a new institute: Indian Institute of Information Technology Guwahati (IIITG). This is one of the 20 IIITs being set up by the Govt. of India in public-private partnership (PPP) mode. For  IIITG, MHRD has 57.5% stake, Assam Govt 35% and six industry partners the remaning 7.5%.  Prominent among the industry partners is TCS.
An advertisement for faculty in CSE, ECE, Maths, Economics, and English Language Teaching has been issued. Please visit the institute's website ( for more information on how to apply and also on the institute itself.
The campus will come up next to a proposed IT park. It is hoped that the two together will give a boost to the IT industry in Guwahati, which is in its nascent stage currently.
