Careers360 University Rating 2013 included the top Specialized Universities in India. The disciplines that are taught in the top Specialized Universities in India are Science and Technology, Social Sciences, Languages and Physical Education.

Among Science and Technology universities, 7 universities have been rated from 5 stars to 3 stars categories. 2 Science and Technology universities have been awarded 5 stars and 4 stars each. 3 stars have been given to 3 Science & Technology universities.

A total number of 3 Social Sciences Universities have been rated by Careers360 as  5 stars and 4 stars. 1 Social Science University has been given 5 stars, whereas 2 Social Science universities have got 4 stars.

Languages Universities feature among the 3 star rating. A total number of 3 Language universities have been given 3 stars, owing to their NAAC score.

There were 2 Physical Education universities which were rated by Careers360 in the category of 4 stars. 

The top specialized universities in India hold a charm of their own. The world famous London School of Economics and Political Sciences or the Rand Graduate School in USA or the Institute of Social Sciences, the Hague are all great examples of top specialized universities offering programs in select disciplines. India too followed suit and set up a diverse set of best specialized universities in all these domains.

Science & Technology

The Department of Science and Technology had the primary responsibility to set up institutions in this field. And a number of Science and Technology universities are also set up by the Department of Atomic Energy. The Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai is the second best in this domain. And though IISc has taken a top slot here, its substantial presence is in the engineering field.

Another top Science and Technology university that has a very good performance record is the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore which focuses on inter-disciplinary science. Almost all the players here do patent their intellectual findings substantially.

An interesting aspect of this domain is that some of the best Science and Technology universities undertaking research and education in pure sciences are set up by the Department of Atomic Energy. And unfortunately none of these institutions are accredited and hence there is no way to objectively evaluate the learning experience they provide.

Social Sciences
 
The Indian Council of Social Science and Research (ICSSR) is the primary body which funds specialized social science universities in India. Though all of them are autonomous only Tata Institute of Social Sciences has a university status and is among the best. Though in terms of absolute publications it is dwarfed by some of the multidisciplinary universities, its focus on providing a superior learning experience as attested by a very high NAAC score has brought it laurels. But social sciences domain suffers due to the absence of a concerted focus on the part of the government and the private sector in setting up new Social Sciences Universities.

Languages
 
This is one domain where the state is very partial to Sanskrit language. While there are 14 different top specialized universities working on this language, only three of them made the cut to be in our rating list. And all of them gained entry primarily due to their NAAC score. Another top Language university, English and Foreign Languages University, ideally must have made the cut, but had no valid NAAC rating.
 
Though many state governments have set up language universities for research and promotion of their regional languages, very little information is available about many of them and to the best of our knowledge, none of them have university status granted on or before 2008.

Physical Education

The two top Physical Education universities in the country are part of the ratings and both are NAAC accredited.
 
The sheer nature of research work undertaken by most of these universities is not amenable to patenting at all, barring science and technology which is the one most suited to patenting activity.
