In the list of Top 100 Golden Age University by Times, 5 Indian Education Institutes have found their place. IIT Bombay, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Madras are the 5 universities who made their mark in this list. The ranking takes its name from what was a Golden Age in global higher education, characterised by rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research, said a statement from Times Higher Education.

The Golden Age ranking casts a spotlight on the best universities established for more than 50 years, but less than 80 years. Thus the universities in the Times Higher Education “Golden Age” ranking were established between 1945 and 1967. The universities were measured across their “core missions” – teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income. University of California, San Diego, tops the list, it said in a media release on Thursday.

IIT KGP was placed 45th in the list that includes more than 350 universities from 42 countries across four continents. Peking University of China tops the list, the release said. Among the top 5 Indian institutes, IIT Bombay was established in 1958, IIT Kharagpur was established in 1951, IIT Delhi was established in 1961, IIT Kanpur was established in 1959 and IIT Madras was established in 1959.

The universities were measured across their “core missions” – teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income. University of California, San Diego, tops the list. Australian National University, Chinese University of Hong, Seoul National University and Monash University also featured in the top five.
