        Shanghai Ranking Consultancy announced the 2021 Global Ranking of Academic Subjects this week. Five subjects of Chang Gung University including biomedical engineering, nursing, medical technology, dentistry & oral sciences, and pharmacy & pharmaceutical sciences were listed in the rankings.  Among these subjects, CGU’s biomedical engineering ranked third in Taiwan, nursing ranked second countrywide, and medical technology ranked second nationwide. All these three subjects of CGU ranked first among all private universities in the country. Chang Gung University plans and cultivates top-notch research centers, implements innovative teaching, and at the same time promotes industry-university cooperation and interdisciplinary research. The outcomes have been repeatedly recognized by various ranking institutions. The university will uphold its original intention and move towards the vision of a first-class university with international characteristics.

        Shanghai Ranking Consultancy is a globally renowned university ranking institution. The subject rankings announced this round encompass five major fields - natural sciences, engineering, life sciences, medical sciences and social sciences, covering 54 subjects in total. More than 4,000 universities around the world participate in the ranking. The total number of papers published in important journals, the impact of paper standardization, the proportion of international collaboration papers, the number of papers published in top journals, and the number of authoritative awards won by faculty members from 2015 to 2019 were used to calculate the ranking. The index weight coefficients were different from subject to subject.

        Of all the subjects of Chang Gung University shortlisted this year, three subjects ranked first among all private universities in Taiwan. Furthermore, CGU’s dentistry and oral sciences ranked third countrywide and pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences ranked fourth in the country. It is worth mentioning that in the field of "biomedical engineering", the College of Engineering of CGU has achieved outstanding results in the development of smart clothes, electrocardiograms and ultrasound brain drug delivery systems. This year, Professor Jui-Yang Lai of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, a recent winner of the "Outstanding Research Award" of the Ministry of Science and Technology, has studied the design of biomedical materials and opened the opportunity for the application of ophthalmic medical technology to disease detection and treatment. The research results have also attracted a lot of attention.

        Chang Gung University has a strong research atmosphere and continues promoting cutting-edge research across fields. It has outstanding results in major areas such as emerging viruses, molecular medicine, healthy aging, artificial intelligence, green technology, biomedical engineering, radiology, and management and operation analysis.
