NITIE Ranked 68 in SDG Goal 8 by THE Impact Ranking 2021
NITIE has been a thought leader in Industrial Engineering education and research and is an active partner in the Nation's manufacturing renaissance. We have also been a forerunner in sustainability and started a Postgraduate Programme in Industrial Safety and Environmental Management as early as 2001.
The Times Higher Education (THE) had started its impact ranking in recent years based on the University/Institution’s achievements on United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The indicators of research, stewardship, outreach, and teaching are carefully calibrated.
We are happy to announce that NITIE has achieved 68th rank in the world and 3rd in India in Goal number 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth with a score of 71.6 (the highest score being 84.3) out of 100. This goal measures university’s economics research, their employment practices, and the share of students taking work placement. Goal eight is a very significant goal for our Nation as it focuses on promoting sustainability and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. We are indeed happy that NITIE has scored almost 100 per cent on the parameters like expenditure per employees and percentage of students in work placement.
NITIE also scored well in SDG 6 on Clean Water and Sanitation and particularly in water usage and care parameter and ranked in 201-300, SDG 1 on No Poverty (301-400), and SDG 17 on Partnership for the SDG Goals (601-800).
NITIE is committed to performing even better in the coming years on these sustainable development goals.
