To conduct the rankings for 2020-21, over 150 field personnel of the highly reputed Delhi-based market research and opinion polls company, Centre for Forecasting & Research Pvt. Ltd (C FORE), interviewed 4,168 sample respondents comprising 2,214 faculty and 1,126 final year students of 162 Universities and 828 industry representatives in 25 cities countrywide.
The institutions were rated with scores of 1-300 on ten parameters of higher education excellence like faculty competence, faculty welfare and development, research and innovation, curriculum and pedagogy, industry interface, placements, infrastructure, internationalism, leadership/governance and range and diversity of study programmes offered. Higher weightage was given to the critical parameters of faculty competence, research and innovation and infrastructure.
Interestingly, the Education World has an observation about State Universities. “Once reputed for their high academic quality and excellent faculty, the majority of India’s 409 State Universities are in a shambles ruined by meddling rustic politicians, over-the-top caste-based selection of faculty and students, and over-subsidisation of tuition fees,” it said.
