Times Higher Education ranking: IIT-B ranks 29th


Around 16 Indian institutes/universities featured in the top 200 rankings.

Phil Baty, editor, World University Rankings, said, "The BRICS and Emerging Economies Rankings used the same 13 rigorous and demanding performance indicators as the overall World University Rankings, so institutions have to demonstrate high standards of performance across teaching, research, international outlook and industry links."

IIT-Bombay scored 17.7 in international outlook, 28.6 in research, 48.5 in citations, 42.3 in industry income and 35.6 in overall ratings. Almost all IITs had only 1% international students on their campuses, according to key statistics released by THE. This is the second achievement for IIT-Bombay within a week; it was ranked 93 in the first edition of Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) graduate employability rankings.

Institute director Devang Khakhar said, "We are extremely happy with the continuous progress we are making in the world rankings. The recent rankings are a testament to the successful, ongoing evolution of our institute as a global education centre in the field of engineering education and research." While IITs in Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai have gone up in rankings, IIT Kharagpur and Roorkee have gone down a few notches.
