Nanyang Technological University (NTU) joins three other Asian universities that made it to the world’s top 10 universities that are under 50 years old.
In Times Higher Education’s second annual 100 under 50 rankings, NTU made it to the eighth spot, up from 16th last year.
This comes after last week’s announcement that the university had broken through the top 10 Asian universities according to the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) University Rankings.
South Korea’s Pohang University of Science and Technology, or Postech, topped the list, followed closely by its rival university, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in third – up from its fifth ranking last year.
Hong Kong University of Science and Technology dropped one spot to fourth.
The rankings are based on the same 13 performance indicators that cover teaching, research, interaction with industry and internationalisation that THE’s university rankings use.
