8 young Taiwanese universities ranked among world's top 100
London, April 5 (CNA) Eight Taiwanese educational institutions have been included in the 2017 Times Higher Education rankings of the world's top 100 universities under 50 years old, led by National Taiwan University of Science and Technology in 59th place.
Chang Gung University, National Sun Yat-sen University and National Yang Ming University are rated 101st-150th, while Asia University, Feng Chia University, National Chung Cheng University and Yuan Ze University are in the 151st-200th bracket.
Universities ranking lower than 100 are not assigned individual rankings, but are presented within various ranges.
The rankings are designed to highlight those universities that have joined the ranks of the world's finest thanks to rapid development over a relatively short period. It also picks out those that have the greatest potential.
The performance of the universities is measured using 13 indicators in five main categories: research, citations, teaching, international outlook and industry income, which refers to a university's ability to reinforce industry with innovation, inventions and consultancy.
This year, 200 universities from 48 countries and regions are featured on the list, topped by Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne for the third consecutive year.
It is followed by Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Singapore's Nanyang Technological University, South Korea's Pohang University of Science and Technology, and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
Rounding out the top 10 are the Netherlands' Maastricht University, City University of Hong Kong, Germany's Ulm University, Germany's Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and Italy's Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna.
Phil Baty, editor of Times Higher Education Rankings, said universities from Asia have performed excellently this year, claiming five of the top 10 positions.
Of the 200 universities included on the list, 55, representing more than a quarter of the total, are from 18 Asian countries, he said.
