QS world university rankings

How good are the Indian universities according to the 12th QS ranking?

The twelfth edition of the QS World University Rankings by subject is out and many Indian universities have seen a remarkable rise in their respective ranks.

According to the latest edition of the rankings, five IITs, two IIMs, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), and Delhi University (DU) are among the 16 higher education institutes in India that rank among the top 100 universities globally in their respective subject categories.

Saveetha Institute of Medical and Technical Sciences in Chennai and Indian School of Mines University in Dhanbad were also among India’s top 16 universities. The National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Mohali, jumped a hundred positions to 44th in the pharmacy and pharmacology discipline, having the greatest rise in the rankings.

IIT Kharagpur is one of India’s top three engineering institutes. It took first place in statistics and operational research, as well as agriculture and forestry, and second place in mineral and mining engineering, environmental sciences, economics, and econometrics. In engineering and technology, computer science and information systems, chemical engineering, and accounting and finance, the institute was ranked third.

Benaras Hindu University has also improved its rankings this year. BHU spokesperson Rajesh Singh said, “BHU’s Institute of Environment and Sustainable Development (IESD) has figured in the 401-450 bracket. According to the ranking report, eight Indian universities are featured in QS’s Environmental Sciences 2022 ranking, with IIT-Bombay breaking into the top 150 and IIT-Kharagpur stable in the 151-200 band. The two new entries in this discipline are Banaras Hindu University (401-450) and Anna University (451-460).”

Jadavpur Institution is India’s sole state university to be rated in the QS World University Rankings in the “arts and humanities section for the year 2022”. Prof Suranjan Das, Vice-Chancellor of JU, expressed his delight by saying that the higher educational institution is striving to maintain its high academic excellence by focusing on research activities. To be the only university in the arts and humanities section makes the achievement even more significant, Das added.

While Indian colleges have made significant progress toward world-class quality, more work is needed in the areas of faculty-to-student ratio, international faculty, and international students to climb the QS rankings of top universities and best programs.

Looking at the performance of other Asian nations, 215 Chinese education institutes provide programs that are among the top 100 in the world in their respective fields, followed by South Korea (142), Japan (122), and Hong Kong (118), and Singapore (78). The QS researchers rated the universities based on a variety of factors, including academic reputation, employer reputation, and research citations per publication.
