On June 3, the results of the Asian University Assessment, organized by Times Higher Education (THE), were released. Hanyang University moved down five steps to 38th.
With Tsinghua University of China ranked 1st in the overall Asian rankings, Seoul National University ranked the highest among Korean universities at 9th. Hanyang University had shown a gradual increase annually from 74th place in 2013 to 33rd place in 2019, but unfortunately it dropped five levels down to 38th in the 2020 evaluation. The total score was down 0.2 points compared to last year. However, among the five evaluation indexes, the industry-academic cooperation income and international reputation index rose 6.2 points and 2.5 points respectively, while the international reputation ranked 2nd among domestic universities. The paper citation counts were reduced by four points, bringing disappointing results.
Meanwhile, 489 universities from 30 Asian countries participated in the 2020 THE Asia University Assessment, and 5 categories and 13 detailed indicators were used, including 30 percent for the paper citation counts, 30 percent for research, 25 percent for education conditions, 7.5 percent for internationalization, and 7.5 percent for profits from industry-academic cooperation.
