HYDERABAD: The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), known for making a mark globally in technology and engineering, are now making a mark even in arts, humanities and social sciences while the conventional state government, central government, private and deemed universities continue to fail to do so.

In the recently released subject-wise QS World University Rankings 2017, IITs made a mark in some subjects of arts, humanities and social sciences.

Meanwhile, in some cases it scored better ranking than the conventional universities known for these courses.

In the social sciences and management category, while Delhi University grabbed the best place from India at rank 295, IIT-Delhi(IIT-D) and IIT-Bombay (IIT-B) ranked better at 299 and 342 than Jawaharlal Nehru University which was ranked 391.

In the business and management studies category, IIT-D and IIT-B got ranks in the 151-200 range along with the Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta. IIM-Ahmedabad and IIM-Bangalore were ranked in 101-150 range.

In the art and design subject, IIT-B, IISc-Bangalore and IIT-Kanpur were ranked much better than the National Institute of Design which has been specifically set up for design courses.

However, it is the old IITs that made their mark in the rankings whereas none of the new IITs made their presence felt.
