Indian varsities slip in global ranking

Wednesday September 07, 2011 08:07:06 AM, IANS

New Delhi: Indian universities have slipped in the prestigious Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) global ranking with not even a single one making it to the top 200.

The Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi (IIT-Delhi) marks the first entry for India at the 218th rank in the list. It is followed by IIT-Bombay at 225th position. IIT-Madras follows at 281st position. The report was released Monday.

Last year, IIT-Bombay was at 187, IIT-Delhi at 202 and IIT-Madras at 262.

The list has been topped by Britain's Cambridge University, followed by Harvard University of the US.

In separate subject wise category, the English department of Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University has secured the 51st rank in the category of English language and literature.

The survey ranks universities on different categories including academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty, international faculty and international students.

In the QS Asian ranking, while the likes of IIT-Kanpur, IIT-D, IIT-M, IIT-Kharagpur and IIT-Roorkee climbed rankings, IIT-Bombay dropped two places.

The Asia ranking has been topped by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

At 36th place, IIT-Kanpur - which was ranked 37th last year -- became the top Indian university in this category.
