Cross-disciplinary research and global partnership lead to a big progress in QS rankings
Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) announced the results of the world university ranking by subject 2020. Eight subjects of Taipei Tech are having a great showing at the top side of the list, including Engineering and Technology, Engineering – Mechanical, Aeronautical & Manufacturing, Engineering – Electrical & Electronic, Engineering – Chemical, Computer Science & Information System, Materials Science, Physics & Astronomy, Business & Management Studies. Among the universities in Taiwan, Taipei Tech is reported as the only university that moves forward in the rankings of the five engineering subjects.
This year, Materials Science of Taipei Tech makes its skyrocketing debut in the QS subject ranking by a 101st - 150th place. This big leap can be mainly attributed to the remarkable research capabilities in advanced materials processing. It doesn’t just come from efforts of the department of materials and mineral resources engineering but is also accredited to the abundant cross-disciplinary research across mechanical engineering, molecular sciences, chemical engineering, and optoelectronic engineering. Taipei Tech is also partnered with The Pennsylvania State University in the US and Tohoku University in Japan in academic and research collaborations. Dr. Sea-Fue Wang, the president of Taipei Tech, was even elected the academician of the APAM in 2019 under his special achievements in the terrain of material science.
Taipei Tech also takes its first step into the top 100 Universities in Asia by QS 2020 report, in which universities are evaluated by the six metrics. Taipei Tech has earned its academic and faculty reputation over numerous successful international collaborations, and that is considered the key to the big progress.
