World University Rankings 2018 by subject: engineering and computer science results out now

Asia is home to more world-class universities in engineering and technology than North America, according to Times Higher Education’s new ranking for the subject.

Of the 500 universities included in THE’s 2018 engineering and technology subject table, 132 are in Asia while 127 are in the US and Canada.

China’s Peking University is the continent’s top institution; it joins the top 10 of the ranking, after climbing five places to seventh.

China has made huge investments in science and technology in recent years. But the extent of China’s – and Asia’s – higher education strength in this area is more visible this year thanks to the expansion of the table to include 500 institutions, up from 100 last year.

China has 35 institutions in the ranking – more than any other nation in Asia – up from seven last year. Six of those universities that were also in last year’s table have improved.

South Korea is another strong performer in the continent, with 22 representatives, led by Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) at 27th (up from 30th).

Meanwhile, Singapore’s two leading universities feature high up on the table; the National University of Singapore is at eighth, while Nanyang Technological University is at 16th.
