BENGALURU: Seven Karnataka universities have entered the top 100 rankings of the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), including Bangalore University (BU) and Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) who entered the top 100 and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), who retained its second place from last year.

Despite retaining its second rank, IISc’s overall score increased from 82.67 last year to 83.57 this year. The institute had also come out on top in the University and Research Institutions. While the institute lauded the achievements, an official from the institute told TNIE that compared to the previous year, certain scores awarded to the university had decreased, namely in the Research, Professional Practice & Collaborative Performance (RPC) and Outreach and Inclusivity (OI). RPC had fallen from last year from 91.48 to 87.45, while OI had dropped from 58.39 to 57.46.

However in the report, Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) slipped in ranking compared to 2021. Last year, MAHE ranked 15, and dropped to 17 now. Interestingly, MAHE’s score increased compared to 2021, jumping to 61.23 from 58.91.

National Institute of Technology, Surathkal, jumped up both in score and ranking five places from rank 32 to rank 27 this year, while Mysore University (MU) dropped 20 rankings from 34 to 54.

Interestingly, MU’s peer perception score dropped from 30.07 to 4.08. According to the report, peer perception “is to be done through a survey conducted over a large category of Employers, Professionals from Reputed Organizations and a large category of academics to ascertain their preference for graduates of different institutions.”


“Although our ranking has reduced from 19 to 33 in the Universities Category, we have retained our first position among public universities. The drop in ranking is because of shortage in teachers,” MU VC Prof Hemanth Kumar, said.

JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research (JSSAHER), Mysuru, ranked lower according to the report but scored higher. JSSAHER scored 49.31 against last year’s 46.95, but dropped four ranks from 56 to 60.

“We are happy that our efforts in striving for quality and excellence paid off. In fact we are top among the Universities recognized for researches in health sciences area. Since the education space is opening up globally, we wish to work with eminent players globally,” Dr B Suresh, Pro Chancellor for the university, said.

BU entered the top 100 rankings, alongside VTU, with a respective score of 44.53 and 44.35. VTU is ranked 100, while BU 98. “We’re very happy with the rankings as Bangalore University has climbed four places from last year. This will definitely be a blueprint as we hope to continue rising in the ranks,” Bangalore University Registrar M Kotresh told TNIE.
