Via India edunews.net, we have a bit more info:
|University||2008 Rank||2007 Rank|
The rankings website has announced subject-wise lists as well.
The technology list features all the five original IITs in the top 100. Bombay leads off at 36, followed by Delhi (42), Kanpur (70), Madras (74) and Kharagpur (83).
Here's something that surprised me: While IIT-B, the top Indian technology institution in THE/QS, has a composite score of 49.9, IIT-KGP (the last of the IITs in the same list) comes in with about 30 percent less at 34.5. Remember, these are normalized scores, wherein the top institution (MIT, in this case) has a perfect score of 100. I wonder what this means, though: Is IIT-B about 'half as good as MIT', but IIT-KGP is only 'a third as good'?
In the top 100 in the natural sciences, only IIT-B figures at 77. The lists for both life sciences and biomedicine and social sciences have only one Indian university: Delhi University at 95 and 82, respectively. No Indian university figures in the top 100 for arts and humanities.
Here's something interesting: IIT-B figures in two top 100 lists, while IIT-D figures in only one of them. In the list that has both, IIT-B is ahead of IIT-D. But in the overall list, Delhi outranks Bombay!
