25 institutes from India among world’s top 200

Twenty-five Indian institutions figure in the 2019 ranking of top 200 in 43 emerging economic countries — seven more than the number that figured in last year’s table, according to data released by Times Higher Education.

The Times Higher Education Emerging Economies University Rankings shows that the Indian Institute of Science retains the highest spot for India (14th), followed by the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (27th).

The Savitribai Phule Pune University climbs 87 positions to joint 93rd, alongside the National Autonomous University of Mexico, with a rise in its research score, and a significant rise to its citations (research influence) score. However, each slips a place this year, mainly due to increased competition.

THE said the 2019 table presents a mixed picture for India, with several new entrants and high risers, alongside several institutions that drop back.

The Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee scales 21 places at 35th, due to improvements in research (volume, income and reputation) and industry income (knowledge transfer).

The Indian Institute of Technology Indore (61st) and the JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research (joint 64th) are the highest new entrants for India this year.

Mainland China with 72 institutions remains the most represented country in the annual listing, claiming four of the table’s top five positions.
