NTU Drops in World Ranking 2010
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.
