Teaching Learning Resources & Pedagogy refers to the faculty, their qualifications, guest lectures, accreditations, Industry collaborations etc. Research talks about the research influence and reputation of the institution.
Industry Income and Integration covers the details of corporate leaders visit, revenue generation from knowledge transfers and tie-ups, internships for students etc. Placement Strategies & Support mainly refers to the support from institutions to their students for getting jobs and also includes alumni support for placements. Future Orientation covers the details about the availability of the Incubation centre for start-ups and entrepreneurs, ideas developed by professors and students etc. External Perception & International Outlook refers to the clarity of vision and mission, investing in development activities, public views of the institution in various aspects, number of international students and staff and other collaborations.
