Overview

Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore established in 1909 as a 'Research Institute' or 'University of Research' by Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc Bangalore) is a unique institute concerned with research in frontier areas and education in current technologically important areas. It came into existence with the combined endeavors of Tatas, the Government of India, and the Government of Maharaja of Mysore. The University Grants Commission, which was established in 1956, granted IIS Bangalore the status of deemed University.

 

IISc has been ranked No. 1 in an article titled "Ranking of Indian engineering and technological institutes for their research performance during 1999–2008" that was recently published in the journal Current Science. Worldwide, the institute falls among the top 400 according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities.

 

The institute has rank within 76-100 according to Academic Ranking of World Universities in Chemistry - 2010  and Academic Ranking of World Universities in Engineering/Technology and Computer Sciences - 2010.Excerpt from BBC news reads as "IISc, which is not an university but a research institute is ranked higher than IITs in research in India".
