The world's TOP 100 Engineering and computer universities

I was not surprised not to find any Arab or Islamic university among the leading universities in the world. Also not surprised to find two Israeli universities, which tells you what?
And that the top 15 Universities are all American with Cambridge (UK) coming 16th??
Tohoku (Japan) at 17th???

Are the high rise building and mega malls in Dubai getting us anywhere?
Or the tones of IT graduate from our 22 jordanian unversities contribute anything to the world?
Or the massively luxurious car, unprecedented in other parts of the world taking us anywhere?
How about the near $100 Per barrel OIL prices that our neigbouring countries are charging now a days?
Isn't the quran that started with the word 'IQRA2' ? (read- a clear indicator for the important of education)
Let me NOT imagine what prophet mohammad would react to all of that

wasn't Jordan supposed to be one of the arab world most educated country? but not one Jordanian university made it to the list. all these high taxes and expensive university fees jordanains have to pay for WHAT? just to pay vacations and villas and scholarships for regime thugs?

Are you mad,
that is the wrong list, completely wrong,
where are the IITs?

The comments above look quite bad :(. However, I found this list of American Engineering Universities on the internet. Just look at the huge number of universities there, and compare it with the tiny number of universities in the Islamic world. You will get the answer to your question straight-away. There is only one way of progress open for us; and that is to establish institutions of knowledge.

glad that you commented, however, look at it as positive criticism. the comment is bad , but realistic.

It's sad but true that IIT(s) are not in top 100. Generally we boast a lot of IIT but hardly it is in 150s. Dude list is not wrong. Even IIM(s) have more worse ranking than IIT on global arena.

The entrance exam for the IIT might be the top entrance exam and might be the toughest..but the standards of the IIT are just to make place in top 100 I assume
