New Delhi, 1 May-2014, Sandipan Sharma: The Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, has demonstrated the way. The junior IIT from Assam has brought cheer to Indian scholastic establishments by possessing a spot around the main 100 world colleges — under 50 years of age — distributed by London-based Times Higher Education (THE) magazine today.
IIT Guwahati has been set 87th in the positioning that dissected 800 new-breed colleges from 29 nations, including the US and the UK. The magazine is known for its World University Ranking in which the period of a foundation is no bar for investment. Two years prior, the magazine has begun a separate positioning for colleges, which are underneath 50 years of age, to propose which foundations can possibly turn into the cutting edge Harvard or Oxford. No Indian foundation has ever figured around the main 200 positions in the positioning. Just five foundations, including four IITs, discovered a spot in the main 500 world organizations in 2013, up from three in the past year. Punjab University was put between 225 to 250 positions in the World University Ranking of THE most recent year, denoting the best accomplishment by an Indian establishment work a year ago. “There has been a lot of soul-looking in India over the way that none of its colleges make the World University Rankings best 200 — a genuine concern given the nation’s incredible educated history and developing social and budgetary impact. Be that as it may this new examination, which looks at the up and coming era of worldwide college stars, ought to be empowering,” said Phil Baty, rankings manager, Times Higher Education.
