Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) ranked for three different subjects, viz. (i) Mechanical, Aeronautical and Manufacturing, (ii) Chemical Engineering, and (iii) Engineering and Technology, in the recently released QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019. The inclusion of the latter two subjects in QS subject tables marks two more additions than UMP did last year, indicating that UMP has become more prominent in the technical field of education. Furthermore, the rankings once again recognized UMP as the leader within the Malaysian Technical University Network (MTUN), which is made up of four technological universities in Malaysia, with only UMP earning a place in the subject table of Chemical Engineering.
“These rankings highlight excellences in education at UMP that focus on a wide range of technical and technological aspects,” said Professor Dato’ Sri Ts. Dr. Daing Mohd Nasir Bin Ibrahim, the Vice Chancellor of UMP. He continued with a statement: “subject rankings are commonly used by students when choosing and evaluating universities because they are able to make informed decisions using the highlights of subject-related strengths in individual disciplines.”
UMP rose in the subject of Mechanical, Aeronautical and Manufacturing in this 2019 subject rankings, particularly from #351–400 to #301–350. This improvement was attributable to greater employer recognitions and total citations per paper in the field. As for the inaugural rankings of both Chemical Engineering (#251–300) and Engineering and Technology (#401–450) subjects, the former showed improvements in all four indicators, including Academic Reputation, Employer Reputation, Citations per Paper, and H-Index. Meanwhile, the latter, which is a broad subject, saw accomplishments in not only its reputations and recognitions, but also Citations per Paper and H-Index.
Congratulations to UMP for achieving another awesome milestone! This thrilling news added on to the exciting year at UMP, which celebrated its 17th birthday recently.
