Tirupati: Sri Venkateswara University was ranked 60 under university category in National Institute of Ranking Framework (NIRF) of Ministry of Education, Government of India. In 2022, SV University was placed at 67th rank in the same category which has improved this time. Similarly, SVU College of Engineering also improved its position by securing 151-200 position now compared to 251-300 position in the previous year.
This framework outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country. The methodology draws from the overall recommendations, broad understanding arrived at by a Core Committee set up by MHRD to identify the broad parameters for ranking various universities and institutions, which cover teaching, learning resources, research and professional practices, graduation outcomes, outreach and inclusivity and perception. The ranking exercise for the year 2023 continues with the practice of providing a common ‘Overall’ rank in addition to a separate rank for universities, research institutions, degree colleges, and discipline-specific ranks in engineering, management, pharmacy, law, medical, dental and architecture & planning. Agriculture & allied sectors and innovation are two verticals added to the ranking exercise from 2023 onwards.
On this occasion, Vice Chancellor Prof K Raja Reddy shared his happiness in announcing that Sri Venkateswara University secured a rank of 60 in university rankings.
