GUWAHATI: IIT-Guwahati was named among the top 10 engineering institutes of the country in the India Rankings 2018 for higher educational institutions. The rankings were released by Union minister for human resource development Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday.
While IIT-Madras ranked first, IIT-Bombay came second, followed by IIT-Kharagpur. IIT-Delhi ranked fourth, IIT-Kanpur fifth and IIT-Roorkee sixth.
