QS 2015 Rankings: IISc Bengaluru and IIT-D among top 200 World Universities
Apratim Chatterjee, 15 Sep 2015, #IISC

Two Indian Institutes - Indian Institute of Science, (IISc) Bengaluru and Indian Institute of Delhi (IIT-D) have found place in top 200 World Universities ranked by Quacquarelli Symonds’ (QS), bagging 147 and 179 ranks, respectively.

Last year, IIT Bombay topped the ranking chart at 222, while Delhi was ranked at 235 and IISc Bengaluru was marked N.A. in the overall score of QS World University Rankings.


According to the QS World University Rankings 2015, as many as 14 Indian institutions have been represented in the top 400 of the university leagues table. However, premier Universities like University of Delhi (DU) and University of Mumbai are nowhere in the QS 200 Ranking List. “While the IISc and the IIT-D have progressed in this edition, the large comprehensive universities, such as the University of Delhi and the University of Mumbai have lost ground, principally because of the normalisation by faculty applied to the research indicator but also due to deterioration in other dimensions as well,” the QS release said.


Besides IIT Delhi, other IITs like IIT Bombay, IIT Madras and IIT Kanpur are among the top 300. These IITs have remarkably improved their rankings from that of last year. While IIT-B has improved to 202 from 222, IIT-M has moved to 254 from 321 and IIT-K to 271 from 300.


Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) which is the most sought after University for Higher Education in India, was unable to secure a position even in the top 700 and is marked N.A. in the overall score of QS World University Rankings 2015. However, as per QS World Rankings 2015 by Subject List, the University has led the Indian Universities bagging 168th position in Arts and Humanities category.


According to the World University Ranking by QS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University are the two top Universities of the world, followed by University of Cambridge, Stanford University and California Institute of Technology (CALTECH) ranked 3rd, 4th and 5th among the top Universities, respectively.


A total of 34 countries have been represented in the top 200 Universities in the QS World Rankings 2015-2016. The United States with 49 institutions in the top 200 is leading the list, closely followed by the United Kingdom with 30 institutions. The other countries with their Universities in the top 200 are the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Australia, and Japan, China, France, Sweden and Hong Kong.


London is the only city with four Universities in top 50, with London School of Economics and Political Science placed at 40th position for the first time.
