Continuously Progressing towards Our Goals--The National Yang Ming University (NYMU) has upgraded to 432nd place according to the "2011 World University Rankings" made by Shanghai Jiao Tong University

Shanghai Jiao Tong University has just published the latest "World University Rankings", in which NYMU was ranked at the 432nd place, upgrading by 15 places compared to the 447th place in last year, and with the greatest progress among all universities in Taiwan.

This year, a total of seven universities in Taiwan are in the top 500, including National Taiwan University (the 123rd), National Cheng Kung University (the 285th), National Tsing Hua University (the 326th), National Chiao Tung University (the 330 th), Chang Gung University (the 402nd), National Yang Ming University (the 432nd) and National Central University (the 472nd). Among these universities, NYMU, upgraded by 15 places, has made the greatest progress. In addition, NYMU has been making progress every year since 2006, from the 484th place in 2006 to the 432nd place in 2011.

The metrics and the weights of this ranking include: Alumni: The number of alumni who received Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals (10%); Awards: The number of teachers who received Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals (20%); HiCi: The number of teachers whose papers were highly cited by ISI HighlyCited.com (20%); N&S: The number of articles published in "Nature" and "Science" from 2006 through 2010 (20%); PUB: The number of papers published in 2010 that have been included in SCI and SSCI (20%); PCP: The total score of the above items divided by the number of full-time teachers (10%).

Considering the small size of NYMU, the total number of papers published by NYMU faculty members is hard to compete with other large-size comprehensive universities; referring to the PCP indicator (which is normalized by the total number of full-time teachers), NYMU ranked at the 119th place this year or the first place in Taiwan, with a remarkable progress of 98 places compared to 2008.

In recent years, NYMU has continued to progress towards the established objectives, and with the support of the funding from the Ministry of Education's "World-Class Universities and Top Research Center Project" , our major R & D accomplishments have received world-wide recognition. This year, NYMU has again won a grant of 500 million NT$ from the Ministry of Education; approximately the same level of funding award can be anticipated each year in the next 5 years through the second-phase of the project (renamed the "Top University Project"). Based on the excellent accomplishments in education and in research achieved in the first phase of the project, and with the joint efforts of both the teachers and the students of the university,outstanding innovation and superior performance towards the next plateau of excellence can be anticipated in the second phase.
