Chang Gung University Made Great Strides in the QS University Rankings: Asia 2014

According to the 2014 QS Asian university ranking published by the UK-based higher education institution Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), twelve universities in Taiwan were ranked in Asia’s 100 best universities. Among them, eight universities had better rankings than last year. National Taiwan University was ranked 21st, dominating all the other universities in Taiwan. Chang Gung University showed the biggest improvement by rising 12 places to 81st. National Taiwan Normal University moved 10 places higher to 75th.

CGU Vice President Prof. Jan-Kan Chen commented on the significant progress in CGU’s ranking in this year’s QS report. He said that CGU did not seem to receive a lot of attention as it had a relatively shorter history and we did not focus much on publicizing our university. However, since CGU was included in the “Aim for the Top University Plan”, our university has gained more publicity. In addition, we have established an academic reputation in the research of medical sciences. It is believed that these two factors contributed to our progress in this year’s ranking.

Vice President Prof. Chen also highlighted that the “Aim for the Top University Plan” played a significant role in boosting our research in the field of molecular medicine as well as facilitating the coordination of human resources in the research of engineering and management. Our future goal is to further develop personalized medicine by tailoring the most appropriate and optimal therapies for each individual patient based on his/her unique molecular characteristics. This approach is expected to save medical resources for Taiwan, as well as to create a more appropriate treatment approach specific to the individual. We envisage this approach would be able to increase the chance of successful treatment.
