“The Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IIT-H) is ahead of all the new IITs achieving 100 per cent faculty recruitment while all others suffer from faculty shortage ranging from 35 to 53 per cent.
“We made a conscious effort to fill up the posts as IITs are known by their faculty. It doesn’t mean that we recruited whoever applied. Quality is always the prime parameter for us,” the IIT-H Director, Professor. U.B. Desai said.
“IT industry and several scientific and research institutions that can complement research interests of the faculty is making them opt for Hyderabad,” said a professor. “Other new IITs lack such appeal.”
Prof. Desai says that he would like to have more faculty in the Computer Science department, but agrees that there is a severe shortage of qualified candidates across the world in that stream.
“The construction work is picking up pace and we hope to shift to the new campus partially by December 2013,” Prof. Desai said.
