Delhi University ranked among the top 500 universities of the world

For the first time ever, Delhi University (DU) has been ranked among the top 500 universities of the world by the prestigious Times Higher Education Supplement, QS World University Ratings 2007. It has been ranked 254 for its research quality, graduate employability, international outlook and teaching quality. The rank is way ahead of two IITs, Bombay and Delhi, which also find place among the top 400.

Reacting to the news, DU vice-chancellor Deepak Pental hoped that the varsity would be among the top 200 next year. Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge expectedly figure among the top 10 universities of the world. “I am not very happy with the ranking. It should improve and rank among the top 200 by next year,” said Penta . “Since DU has never in the past figured in the list of top universities, whether in the Shanghai Jiao Tong University nor in the THES rankings, this is certainly a boost for the university fraternity,” he added.

Speaking about future plans, Pental said, “This university is a brand and its alumni has contributed to various sectors of society as teachers, bureaucrats, management professionals, scientists and judges, and we have to keep up with global standards. As of now, 10 per cent of the alumni is doing well, but we believe that this percentage should be as high as 50. However, at the same time, we need to improve upon the delivery of education system with a lot of reforms, particularly in academics since improvement in research takes a much longer time.”

As part of its proposed reforms, the university plans to introduce a uniform semester system at the postgraduate level, attract good faculty by providing them with incentives like more frequent increments and other such steps. Though reforms are much-needed, Delhi University has reason to celebrate as it has left behind even the prestigious IITs in the rankings. IIT-Bombay has been ranked 269th, while IIT-Delhi figures as 307 in the list. The other IITs, Kanpur, Madras and Roorkee, figured even lower, occupying slots between 431 and 433.

Meanwhile, the universities of Calcutta, Mumbai and Pune have been ranked 410, 456 and 469 in the list. For the ranking, each parameters carried specific weightage such as quality of research (60%) graduate employability (15%), international outlook (10%) and teaching quality (20%). As per the THES website, for each indicator, the highest scoring institution is assigned a score of 100, and other institutions are calculated as a percentage of the top score. Besides peer review, faculty citation, recruiter review and student faculty ratio were the key indicators for this survey.

I usually do not leave a response, but I browsed a few of
the comments here "Delhi University ranked among the top 500 universities of the world".
I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
Could it be just me or does it look as if like a few of the responses appear like they are written by brain dead
individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites,
I'd like to follow you. Could you post a list of the complete urls of your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

One more issue is video games usually are serious naturally with the principal focus on learning rather than fun.
Although, we have an entertainment part to keep the kids engaged, each game will likely be
designed to improve a specific set of skills or program,
such as instructional math or scientific research. Thanks for your posting.

Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for expressing your ideas. The first thing is that students have a choice between federal government student loan along with a private student loan where its easier to go for student loan debt consolidation than
over the federal student loan.

Thanks for the different tips provided on this web site.

I have noticed that many insurers offer shoppers generous discount rates if
they elect to insure multiple cars with them. A significant volume of households possess several cars or trucks these days, particularly those
with old teenage kids still dwelling at home, plus the savings with policies could soon mount up.
So it is good to look for a great deal.
