Yes, it’s happened finally!
The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) has finally made it in the global rankings of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings of 2015-16 for engineering and technology.
IISc has just made it – at 99th rank.
Education Institutions from the US dominate the top 10 lists, with Stanford, CalTech and MIT in the top three positions.
Asia holds 25 positions in the top 100, while US holds 34 positions.
These rankings are based on evaluation of a number of factors, including teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.
Whilst a rank of 99 may not be flattering, it is a good debut for IISc and hopefully, it will improve next year.
