Following this essential aspect of quality education, Chitkara University has been doing its bit since its inception and it has achieved great heights with several national and state rankings in its kitty.

THE WEEK-Hansa Research Best University Survey 2019 provides insight into the hierarchy of multi-disciplinary and technical universities in the country. Universities recognised by the UGC, offering full-time postgraduate courses in at least two disciplines and having graduated at least three batches of students for postgraduate programs were eligible.
For 2019, a primary survey was conducted with 231 academic experts, spread across 18 cities. They were asked to nominate and rank the top 20 universities in India. Of the 231 interviews, eight were qualitative, to get an in-depth understanding of the reasons for the rankings.
The perceptual score for a university was calculated based on the number of nominations received and the actual ranks given to the university. The factual score was calculated using the information collected from universities and other secondary sources on age and accreditation, infrastructure and other facilities, faculty, research and academics, student intake and industry exposure and placements (only for technical universities). Final score = Perceptual score (out of 400) + factual score (out of 600)
