QS World Rankings: IIT Hyderabad 9th best technical institution in India; UoH also improves position

Hyderabad: For the second consecutive year, IIT Hyderabad (IITH) has maintained its position within the top 10 ranks among the technical institutes in the country.

According to QS Quacquarelli Symonds university rankings, IIT Hyderabad is the 9th technical institution in the country. It is the 14th institute in overall rankings in the country.

Indian Institute of Science(IISc) Bangalore is the topmost institution in the country. IIT Bombay ranks first in the technical university category.

QS Quacquarelli Symonds, the global higher education analyst, released the nineteenth edition of the world's most-consulted international university rankings on June 9, 2022. IIT Hyderabad has improved its QS World University Rankings from 591- 600 to 581-590 in 2023.

IITH has significantly improved its ranking in QS over the last four years, from ranking 1300+ to being in the Top 600. At 120 globally in the Citations per Faculty, IITH stands strong with 273 accomplished faculty & 1000+ research scholars. A stronghold on research has made IITH among the top 41% institutes globally vis-à-vis 46% last year.

Expressing his delight in this recognition, Prof B S Murty, Director, IITH, said, "Being a young institute, it is a moment of pride for IITH to be ranked among the prestigious institutes in the world. With the significant growth in research & development, academia relations, industry relations & international relations, I am confident IITH will make it to the Top 500 globally in coming years."

Meanwhile, the University of Hyderabad (UoH) is ranked in the 751-800 range in the highly competitive QS World University Rankings 2023.

The UoH is categorized as an "established medium-sized public university with high research intensity and comprehensive subject focus".

According to the QS release, six indicators determine the institutions' rankings — academic reputation (40 percent), employer reputation (10 percent), faculty-student ratio (20 percent), citations per faculty (20 percent), the proportion of international students (5 percent) and the proportion of international faculty (5 percent).

Overall, in the 2023 edition, the UoH performed among the top 53 percent in the QS World University Rankings. At 359 rank globally, the Citations per Faculty is the strongest indicator for UoH. In citations per faculty, UoH has scored 38.7 out of 100 points indicating the widespread reach and impact of its published work.

"UoH has again been ranked among the 1400 plus Top Global Universities which is a good indicator of its sustained performance. However, we have slid down in some parameters that have affected the overall rankings. It is a cause of concern even though a few other universities have also slid down compared to earlier years' ranking. We will brainstorm and arrive at measures to be taken to move up in the rankings," said Professor BJ Rao, Vice-Chancellor.
