NTU Drops in World Ranking 2010

September 18, 2010 · Posted in Anything 

The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has found itself dropped more than 100 position from the recent report by THE World University Rankings 2010, at 174th position. The ranking system is based on the new methodology that focuses more on research, teaching and knowledge transfer.

Having said that, another Singapore-based university, National University of Singapore (NUS), continue to maintain its position in the top 100, at 34th position, a drop of 4 places since last year.

The top 3 universities are from the US; Harvard University, California Institute of Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It will certainly be a long while before an Asia-based academic institution gets its podium in the top 3.

    NTU has dropped in the rankings becuase they now pay more attention to teaching environment which at NTU is very poor. Research is good, but in teaching they are living in the past.

    Hi Peterd,

    I couldn’t have agree with you more. NTU still thinks that, because of the huge campus size, they are still in the world class academic industry.

    Things are always constantly changing and I don’t think NTU is anywhere near Harvard or MIT.
