YU (President CHOI Oe-chool) was once again proven to have world-class research capacities.

 

  YU took first place (50th in Asia and 171st in the world) in the Mathematics & Computer Science sector in the ‘2021 Leiden Ranking’. YU has been exhibiting dominating research capacities by taking first place seven years in a row in the 2020 Leiden Ranking for mathematics and computer science.

 

  YU also placed 14th in the overall ranking. YU ranked 8th in Life & Earth Sciences and 23rd in Physical Sciences & Engineering in the nation, thus being recognized for its extraordinary research capacities over various academic fields.

 

  YU President CHOI Oe-chool commented, “YU has been ranked first for seven straight years in the math and computer science sectors in Korea through global university evaluations, thus being recognized for its unparalleled research capacities.” He further stated, “We will spare no support so that YU’s research capacities become similar to global levels in various academic sectors.”

 

  The Leiden Ranking is a world university ranking by Leiden University of the Netherlands that evaluates the research capacities of university research capacities based on the qualitative levels of research papers. It excludes subjective qualitative evaluation elements such as university reputation, and ranks universities based on the number of theses and frequency of citation, and therefore, it is judged to be an important indicator for assessing the research outcomes of universities and the quality of the research. This year, it evaluated a total of 1,225 universities around the world that published a minimum of 1,000 studies in international academic journals over a period of four years from 2016 to 2019. 46 Korean universities were included in the rankings.

  Leiden Ranking awards the overall ranking and a total of five sectors such as Mathematics & Computer Science, Biomedical & Health Sciences, Life & Earth Sciences, Physical Sciences & Engineering, and Social Sciences & Humanities.
