Based on the recent ratings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings by Subject 2017 which includes some 400 universities in the world, Universiti Malaya (UM) got the 23rd place for the subject of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

In fact, UM even got a higher ranking than Prince University in the US and University of Melbourne, Australia.

Not only that, 11 subjects from four other local public universities placed among the top 50 in the world.

“Universiti Malaya has the most numbers of subjects listed in the world’s best rankings which are Electrical and Electronic Engineering (23), Development Studies (26), Mechanical Engineering (33), Chemical Engineering (38) and Education (41),” said Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.

Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) also made Malaysians proud, as they have various subjects that are on par (or even better) with the world’s best. These subjects are Hospitality & Leisure Management (32), Mineral and Mining (35), Chemical Engineering (38) and Environmental Sciences (49).

The other two universities are Taylor’s University and International Islamic University Malaysia (UIAM) which ranked 29th and 46th respectively for Hospitality & Leisure Management and Theology, Divinity and Religious studies.

This is a vast improvement from last year as we only had 3 courses ranked in the QS list.

“This shows that our universities are continuously improving or soaring upwards, which is the slogan of the ministry,” Idris added.

Political analyst Lim Sian See (LSS) also said, “Although there was a budget cut in line with the National Education 2015 to 2025 masterplan to focus on quality compared to quantity, UM has improved dramatically. For Electrical and Electronic Engineering, UM jumped from 51 in 2015 to 37 last year to 23rd place this year. It seems that the masterplan is working.”

Keep up the good work, people!
