Indian Education thread

Education somehow skips our mind when we talk about the economy. It is a foundation of a good economy. India is known to have produced quality engineers, doctors and many other professionals. Kindly post the current issues and developments happening in schools and colleges around the country

IIT-Delhi is also missing in this list of top-20 colleges. It is an understatement to say that this list is inaccurate.

My own perception
Top 5 (in no particular order) - Five IITs (Kanpur, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kharagpur)
Next set (in no particular order) - IIT-Guwahati, BITS (Pilani), Delhi College of Engg., REC-Trichy, REC-Surathkal, MNREC-Allahabad, BIT (Mesra), Jadavpur, Anna University, Netaji Subhash Inst. of Tech (formerly DIT), VJTI-Mumbai (maybe a couple more RECs to be in this list),

Within the top 5 or the next set, ranks are pretty immaterial and often pretty subjective.

This perception is based on my observations of where the most successful students come from. A couple more institutions may have been missed out by me in the 'next set', but for the most part, this is what industry as well as higher-education institutions in India and abroad would include in their lists.

Where Aryabhata when you need him? The list should be an eye-opener for the Bangalore fans. BLR (and HYD for that matter) seem to be conspicuous by its total absense

Comparing institutes of higher education against each other within India is all well and good, but where does the IIT stand when pitted against princeton and the MIT? I once read in a magazine survey that IIT delhi ranks no. 450 in the world. Is this accurate? Also, it was the ONLY IIT in the list. In another survey IIM ahmedabad did not even figure in the list of top 100 b-schools in the world, right here on SSC.

no 450 is def not true. there's no way that's right.


also, Johns Hopkins University owned Amcare Labs and Apollo Healthcare are setting up a research lab in Hyderabad. great news. Hyderabad is def leading in the biotech/pharma sector. and projects like these mean more research that's going on in the country. hope to see many such new projects come to India so that our institutions are not just for teaching but also original research.

INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGIES RATED third best in world



The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have been ranked the third best technology universities in the world for 2005, according to the prestigious Times Higher Education Supplement (THES). The publication, which is highly respected and read in the world of academia, said: "Our peer review of the world's top technology universities shows that in 2004, the high praise for the Indian Institutes of Technology was no fluke". "Up to third position in 2005 from fourth place last year, the IITs are a source of Indian national pride as well as innovation and wealth". Among science universities, the IITs have been ranked 36th in the world.



The THES table shows that the technologists among our peer review panel regard Imperial College London as the UK's hottest university, ahead of Cambridge University and fifth in the world. The ranking is dominated by the US - it appears 26 times in the top 101 institutions in the list. "Our definition of technology covers the main engineering disciplines including information and communications technology".

I am going to run into contraversies here..

By the looks of stats, I seem to have had some of the best education India has to offer. Somehow I dont think so. Thankfully I partly walked away from that mindset. While they are good at getting people getting high profile job they never look at overall development of the student.
Many of these graduate lack even the basic of social skills or commmunication ability to thrive in a competitive work and end up working as 'nerds' behind the computer screen.

The IISc website spurs me to ask one question I have been eager to ask for a long time,

Which educational institute's website do you think is the best? Because I have seen dozens and dozens of university and other college websites, and most of them dont even come close to a website of an institute in the developed world. Which is very very unfortunate.

no problems 29A.

and yeah, i agree that our educational institutions' websites don't even come close to the websites of other premier educational institutions around the world.

not just educational institutions, for example the Indian Armed Forces' website looks like it hasn't been updated since years, and it still gives the look of India years and years and years ago.

somebody should do something about this.
