For the first time, three renowned Indian institutions — the Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore and the IITs Delhi and Bombay, have catapulted to the list of the top 200 global universities.

This was revealed in the latest QS World University Rankings 2018. While IISc Bangalore has climbed from 190 to 152 this year, IIT-Delhi moved from 172 to 185, while IIT-Bombay jumped from 219 to 179 this year — or among the top 1% of approximately 26,000 universities surveyed globally. The improved ranking is a reflection of the continuous improvement of the quality of education and research at IIT-B.
