The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa maintained its stellar showing in the 2020 Times Higher Education World University Rankings released September 11.

While Indian universities are led by the Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) Bangalore, its ranking dropped 50 places-from the 251-300 ranking cohort in the previous year to the 301-350 grouping. The universities are judged according to several criteria including teaching, research, citations, industry income and global outlook in terms of staff, students and research.

According to Hindustan Times, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), which was the only Indian entry in the top 300 a year ago, has dropped positions from the 301-350 group due to a "significant fall" in its research citation impact. Both second-generation IITs established after 2008-09 have leapt ahead of other top schools and older IITs including those in Mumbai and Delhi, primarily due to their high score in research citations. These two institutes have scored high score in research citations - IIT Ropar has got 100 while IIT Indore scored 77 in research citation parameter.

The university is now rated as 164th best in the world in the Times Higher Education list falling from the 120th spot in last year's rankings. There were a few who have risen, including IIT-Delhi and IIT- Kharagpur and Jamia Millia Islamia.

A total of 56 Indian institutes are among thousand world-class universities this year, up from 49 last year.

Meanwhile, Otago University was ranked in the top 20 per cent; AUT and University of Canterbury were ranked in the top 22 per cent; and Lincoln University, Massey University, Victoria University of Wellington and the University of Waikato came in the top 45 per cent in the rankings. THE rankings editor Ellie Bothwell said: "India has a huge amount of potential in global higher education, given its rapidly growing youth population and economy and use of English-language instruction". The female to male ratio in IIT Kanpur is 14: 86, one of the lowest among Indian institutes. India is the fifth most represented country on the list. Stanford University and MIT complete the top five global table. United States institutions saw a slight drop in their average ranking overall. USA universities make up 14 of the global top 20 and seven of the top 10, with the country's leading institutions performing particularly well in the area of citation impact. In all 10 Indian universities which participated for the first time made it to the global ranking list of 1,300 universities. THE chief knowledge officer Phil Baty said, "It has always been clear that the emerging countries of Asia are going to play an increasingly powerful role among the global elite of higher education".
