Nine Taiwan schools among top 100 in Times Asia University Rankings
Taipei, March 16 (CNA) Nine Taiwanese universities were listed among the top 100 schools in Asia in the 2017 rankings released Thursday by Times Higher Education magazine, with National Taiwan University (NTU) at 24th.
NTU's ranking was the highest among the nine Taiwan universities but was nine notches lower than last year, when it placed 15th in the Asia University Rankings.
Lee Fang-jen, head of NTU's Office of Research Development, said the school's ranking had dropped although it obtained the same overall score as last year, which was an indication that universities in other countries were moving at a faster pace than NTU.
Apart from NTU, the institutions in Taiwan that were ranked among the best 100 universities in Asia this year were National Tsing Hua University (33rd), National Chiao Tung University (39th), National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (41st), National Cheng Kung University (47th), Taichung-based China Medical University (67th), National Taiwan Normal University (88th), Taipei Medical University (91st) and National Sun Yat-Sen University (99th).
The performance of the universities was measured using 13 indicators in five main categories -- teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income, which refers to a university's ability to reinforce industry with innovation, according to the magazine's website.
National University of Singapore retained the No. 1 spot on the list this year, followed by Peking University and Tsinghua University in China, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and University of Hong Kong.
Rounding out the top 10 were Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, University of Tokyo, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Seoul National University, and Pohang University of Science and Technology. (Courtesy of CNA)
