THE World University Rankings 2014: IISc Bangalore stands top

IISc tops the chart in World Varsity Rankings


The Times Higher Education (THE) has released its THE World University Rankings 2014-15. This year again, Indian universities have failed to appear on top 200 rankings in universities list, and have further slipped down in rankings.

Nevertheless, for the first time, Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore has emerged on top of THE World University Rankings with 276-300th position, representing Indian universities from India.

In 2013, Panjab University had emerged as a top university from India, but in 2014 it slipped down to 276-300th position.

For the first time IIT Bombay has emerged in 351-400th position.

IIT Roorkee was placed as same in the 2013 and 2014 in 351-400th position.

"It is good news that India now has two universities in the world top 300, compared to just one last year, thanks to the participation for the first time in the rankings this year of the Indian Institute of Science, which can now be included in the analysis after starting to admit undergraduate students," said Phil Baty, editor of Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

"IISc joins Panjab University in the 276-300 group. But it should be a cause for serious concern that a country of India's size, growing economic strength and great intellectual history, does not yet have a top-200 entrant, and does not seem to be making enough progress up the rankings," Baty said.
