Speaking of the QS Rankings by Subject 2022, Prof P.V. Rao, Dean, Planning & Head, Ranking Cell, IIT Delhi said: “IIT Delhi has been consistently performing very well in core Engineering Specialisations securing top 100 ranks globally. This year we have witnessed a substantial improvement in most of the specialisations like Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Chemical Engineering, etc. with improved scores of H-index and citations. IIT Delhi has also improved globally in other specialisations such as Mathematics, Social Sciences & Management, etc.”


IIT Delhi said that they always work to find solution that will be directly helpful to solve problems of the common citizens. Last week after three years of rigorous research a start-up incubated at IIT Delhi, has developed an affordable yet high-performance medical textile fabric which destroys 99.9 per cent of the bacteria and viruses within 30 minutes.

Now, for the first time, such material will be used for the face mask, PPE kit and other equipment. Already a few fabric are available in the market but these fabrics take more than 24 hours in this process.

According to IIT Delhi, research & development, Fabiosys Innovations, a deep-tech healthcare startup incubated at IIT Delhi, has developed this fabric. It is extremely affordable high-performance medical textile Fabium, which destroys 99.9 per cent of the bacteria and viruses within 30 minutes, IIT Delhi added.
