Data envelopment analysis or DEA methodology is employed for assessing the relative efficiency of different homogeneous units. Through DEA one can analyze the areas which need more attention and can suggest measures for improving the performance of different sectors. Through this article, the authors have tried to analyze the relative efficiency of IITR (The Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee), a higher educational institute (HEI) in India. The efficiency of nineteen academic departments of IIT Roorkee is measured with respect to teaching and research. The novlty of the paper is twofold (1) the authiors have considered the environmental aspects (sustainability criteria) while measuring efficiency (2) Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm is employed in accordance with DEA on the fractional model generated for calculating efficiency.
