71 Indian Universities Make it to The Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings 2022

India is the third most-represented country in the Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings 2022, with 71 of its institutes figuring in the list, up from 63 last year.

Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore is the top-ranked Indian institute in the 42nd place – it has slipped three places from the 37th rank last year.

Besides IISc, the country has three other institutes in the top 100. These include the Mysore-based JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research, which makes its debut in 65th place; IIT Ropar (=68), and IIT Indore (=87).

There are 17 Indian universities in the top 200, down from 18 last year. Of the 14 that were ranked in both years, eight have risen.

Others in the top 200 include IIT Gandhinagar, Alagappa University, Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, Saveetha University, Mahatma Gandhi University, Delhi Technological University, Banaras Hindu University, Institute of Chemical Technology, Jamia Millia Islamia, Jawaharlal Nehru University, International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi and Panjab University.

The seven first-generation Indian Institutes of Technology including Delhi, Bombay, Kharagpur, and Madras continue to stay out of the list as they took a decision in 2020 not to participate in the global rankings, citing data discrepancy and lack of transparency.

The Asia University Rankings 2022 comprises 616 universities from 31 countries and territories.

China is home to the continent’s top two universities for the third consecutive year, with Tsinghua and Peking universities holding on to first and second place, respectively. Japan is the most-represented nation again this year, with 118 institutions, up from 116 last year.

Phil Baty, Chief Knowledge Officer, THE, said in a statement: “This new dataset shows the extraordinarily diverse range of excellence across the Asian continent – with 31 Asian nations/regions making the list. The data demonstrate that Asia is perhaps the most exciting and most dynamic continent for higher education, research and innovation in the world today.”
