IIT-Bombay is among the top 50 engineering colleges across the world, according to the latest QS World University rankings.
Betterment in ranks is seen where the IIT Bombay currently ranked 44, while last year it was ranked 53.
Dr Subhasis Chaudhuri, Director, IIT Bombay said, “Our students and faculty members are our key strength. It is their dedication and hard work that has got us where we are today. I am sure they will take us much further in the near future.”
To look at other top rankings, MIT or Massachusetts Institute of Technology retained its position as the world’s best university, followed by Stanford University (2nd) and Harvard University (3rd).
Ben Sowter of QS quoted “Though India’s universities have dropped as a group this year, this is frequently because of other universities across the world making increasingly intense efforts to enhance their educational offerings”.
“To regain lost ground, Indian higher education must find ways of increasing teaching capacity, and of attracting more talented students and faculty across the world to study in India. There is plenty of potential, and there are pockets of excellence, within the Indian system,” he added.
