News Desk :
Eleven Bangladeshi universities have made it to the list of QS Asia University Ranking 2021.
Among Asia's 650 best universities, Dhaka University claimed the 134th spot, followed by Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) on the 199th spot and North South University (NSU) on the 228th spot, according to the QS Asia University Ranking 2021, published on Wednesday.
Dhaka University went a notch up compared to its position in the QS Asia University Ranking 2020, while BUET and NSU witnessed a major rise too.
Brac University ranked between 271 and 280; Independent University Bangladesh (IUB) between 351 and 400; Daffodil International University, East West University, United International University between 401 and 450; Khulna University of Engineering and Technology between 451 and 500; while Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology and American International University Bangladesh found their position between the 551 and 600 range, according to the latest QS Asia University ranking.
The ranking featured a total of 650 universities from 18 locations across Asia where the National University of Singapore was on the top of the list, followed by the Tsinghua University in China.
The most-represented location is Mainland China (124 ranked universities). Its closest competitor systems are India (107), Japan (105), South Korea (88), Taiwan (43), Pakistan (40), Malaysia (35), and Indonesia (30).
The ranking is an annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), a UK-based higher education marketing company.
It is prepared based on 11 indicators for 100 percentage points: academic reputation (30%), employer reputation (20%), faculty/student ratio (10%), international research network (10%), citations per paper (10%), papers per faculty (5%), staff with a PhD (5%), proportion of international faculty (2.5%) and proportion of international students (2.5%), proportion of inbound exchange students (2.5%) and proportion of outbound exchange students (2.5%).
The QS publishes the world university rankings annually since 2009 and highlights the top universities in Asia. The methodology used to create the Asia ranking is similar to that used for the QS World University Rankings, but with some additional indicators and adapted weightings. This set of criteria, developed in consultation with regional experts and stakeholders, is designed to reflect key priorities for universities in Asia, drawing on as much available data as possible.
Previously known as "Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings", the publisher had collaborated with the THE magazine to publish its international league tables from 2004 to 2009 before both started to announce their own versions.
