Unjust world ranking university, about the need for a system of all Indian national rating and enthusiasm for all new human resource development ministry schemes were the main topics of discussion at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, on Thursday - where the administration gathered to announce their 45 day convocation.
This convocation will see 1,842 undergraduate, graduate and PhD scientists receive diplomas, Nobel laureate George Smoot f (2006 in Physics), said Dean (scientists) Anurag Sharma, before saying that, although they were the number one or two in the existing national ratings, there is still much progress to a more global ratings.
Global rank and file often complain that one of the main reasons that Indian universities do not get the proper rating because they do not provide adequate information or that it is difficult to access information about them. IIT-D has provisions to deal with this, but so far only managed to get to number 235 in the world ranking of universities QS. There are many factors, such as international teachers and students who do not work for the Indian Institute. Once I was in the MBA institute in Europe, which was very high. They scored on international student factor, but all of them were from neighboring countries and there were zero students from countries outside Europe. The distance between the two countries, there is a distance between different countries here, and that in fact, we are told that our students are international, simply because they are from different countries, said the director of IIT RK Shevgaonkar, thus explaining why the international ratings who are constantly engaged in IIT-D is very low, were wrong.
Another reason for the rating is the number of publications. We do a lot of research with the defense sector, where everything is confidential and of course may not be published, although this is very important. However, this is not taken into account, he said, adding that the MHRD recent announcement that it will establish an Indian rating system should be welcomed.
The director also spoke about his participation in the government Bharat Unnat workshop" where each IIT will take 10 villages to help with technology. "We will work with the villagers to improve their lifestyle. For example, if the village makes bamboo huts, we try and find a way to make it easier. The aim of the scheme is to help them live easier and better life.
