Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay has emerged as the top Indian institute in the QS World University Ranking 2020.

The top three institutes in the list are from the United States.

It is one of the most highly regarded worldwide league tables, which have become increasingly popular since universities began to compete globally to attract students and staff in recent years.

While Trinity has dropped in the latest rankings, University College Dublin (UCD) rose eight places to 185th - and 80th in Europe - as did NUI Galway, up to 259th place.

Other Philippine universities included in the list were Ateneo de Manila University (601 to 650), De La Salle University (801 to 1000) and University of Santo Tomas (801 to 1,000). While university research increased its average five-year citations impact by 30%, the global average grew 10%. Globally, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Harvard University, University of Oxford and California Institute of Technology have taken the top 5 spots this year.

The key takeaway for India from the QS rankings is that its research performance is improving faster than the global average. Other top global universities that were able to secure place in the top-20 club are Oxford University (5th position), Cambridge University (6th) Yale University (15th), Columbia University (16th), Princeton University (13th), University of Edinburgh (18th) and the University of MI (20th).

The new index also reported that the American University in Dubai had dropped from the 561-570 category to the 601-650 bracket.

Two Singapore universities, Nanyang Technological University and National University of Singapore, missed the top 10 by one spot, retaining their 11th place.

Latin America's highest-ranked university is the Universidad de Buenos Aires, which, placing 74th, is the continental leader for the fifth consecutive year.

It now ranks 184 in the world in the Citations per Faculty indicator, and its faculty's research impact ranks above the global average. Zayed University in the capital, however, shot up from the 701-750 bracket to the 651-700 range.

"While this new edition of the QS World University Rankings shows that the Indian Higher Education system is making progress in some key areas, the sector requires more substantial, sustained and strategic investments both in research and education".

Indian science and technology institutions funded by the government scored high in terms of citations per faculty, with the IISc, Bengaluru, achieving a ideal 100 in that indicator.
