New Delhi : JNU has entered the top 1,000 of the QS World University rankings as a comprehensive university for the first time, as its new undergraduate engineering programme now makes it eligible for the rating. It debuted at the 561-570 ranking band in the rankings. JNU, often regarded as one of India’s best universities, was ranked in the 561-570 bracket by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), which only rates institutions offering both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

In general, the top 1000 list of 22 of India’s institutions, as compared with 21 last year, the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), in Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, and Madrasas are making great strides in the past. IIT Mumbai, India retains its position as one of the leading Indian companies for the fourth year in a row, but because of the five places in the world for the 177th position. IIT Delhi (185th place), but the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (186th place), the India’s three research institutions in the top 100 in the world. IISc has been declared to be of the best research universities in the world, with the highest number of citations per faculty member, this indicator to adjust the size of the faculty.

JNU VC M. Jagadesh Kumar statement on QS world Rankings: This is the first time JNU has appeared as a comprehensive University within 550-600 range in the global rankings. We value the recognition of JNU as a top institution and V.C said I am grateful to all the students, staff, the faculty members and the alumni who have contributed to this recognition. Our collective efforts during the last five years in strengthening the existing programs in Science and Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines and the introduction of several new academic programs particularly the Undergraduate engineering program and the establishment of Atal Bihari Vajpayee School of Management and Entrepreneurship have largely contributed to this recognition. India will benefit immensely with more Indian educational institutions becoming part of the global group of highly recognized Universities. At the same time, I also would like to emphasize that our universities should focus on finding solutions to many challenges in climate, energy, education, health and national security to build a self-reliant India and a sustainable world. Recognition and good University rankings will automatically follow these sustained efforts. JNU, therefore, will continue to work towards improving the educational standards and enhancing innovation and research in our University.
