New Delhi: The three premier science and technology institutions in the country, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB), IIT Delhi and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore continue with their good run in international rankings and have been ranked among the top 200 globally in the QS World University Rankings 2022.

The IIT Bombay has maintained its leading position this year as well with the rank of 177, followed by IIT Delhi at 185 and IISc at 186. The IISc has scored highest (100) in the citations per faculty (CPF) parameter, while the two IITs have scored highest in employer reputation, which reflects their good placement record.

The three institutions are also the first three public institutions to get the Institution of Eminence (IoE) status, have scored low in international faculty and international students, thus affecting their overall ranking.

The Indian institutions in the top 500 in the world are all IITs with IIT Madras at 255, IIT Kanpur at 277, IIT Kharagpur at 280, IIT Guwahati at 395 and IIT Roorkee at 400.

T. G. Sitharam, Director, IIT Guwahati, said: “I congratulate the faculty, students and staff of IIT Guwahati for this remarkable growth in this performance which clearly shows that despite the pandemic, the institute has been working tirelessly to make such a global impact. The institute has improved in Research Citations per Faculty indicating the visibility of research activities of the institute as well as in the Academic Reputation as the major contributors in this increase.”

IIT Guwahati has broken into the top 50 institutions in the ‘Research Citations per Faculty’ category and has secured 41st rank globally (56th in 2021) with a score of 94.8 this year.

Ranking of universities

None of the multidisciplinary universities has been ranked among the top 500, with the University of Delhi (DU) once again being ranked in the band of 501-510, after breaking into the top 500 in 2019. Among the other public institutions being ranked in this year’s QS World University Rankings are Jawaharlal Nehru University, IIT Hyderabad, Jamia Millia Islamia, Savitribai Phule Pune University, the University of Hyderabad among others ranked between 500-1000.

Among the private universities O P Jindal Global University and Manipal Academy of Higher Education and Siksha 'O' Anusandhan have been ranked among the top 500-1000 in the world. Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani, another IoE, and one of the most sought+after private engineering institutions in the country has once again slipped out of the top 1000 universities in the world.

Among the top 10 in the world, there is hardly any change with British and American universities bagging the spots. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) continues to dominate the ranking followed by the University of Oxford at second and Stanford University at third. University of Cambridge and Harvard University have been ranked fourth and fifth this year respectively.

Quacquarelli Symonds uses six parameters to rank institutions which include Academic Reputation (40%), Employer Reputation (10%), Faculty/Student Ratio (20%), Citations per faculty (20%), International Faculty Ratio (5%) and International Student Ratio (5%).
