The British publication Times Higher Education (THE) published the results of subject ratings, which for the first time included the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics. In the field of “Computer Science” NURE took 301-400 position in the world and 2nd place in Ukraine, in the field of “Engineering Science and Technology” – 601-800 position in the world and 3rd place in Ukraine.
The same 13 indicators are used in compiling THE subject rankings as in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. They present five areas: teaching (learning environment) – 30%; research (volume, income and reputation) – 30%; citations (research impact) – 27.5%; international interaction (teachers, students and research) – 7.5%; income from production activities (knowledge transfer) – 5%.
The threshold for entering the subject rating is determined by two criteria: the threshold of publications and the threshold of academic staff in the discipline. For the ratings “Computer Science” and “Engineering Science and Technology” it is 500 articles in these areas for the last five years in Scopus and at least 1 percent of the number of teachers of computer science and computer science and 4 percent of the number of teachers of engineering disciplines (electrical and electronic engineering, energy, devices and materials science, robotics, telecommunications, avionics, automation and control systems, biomedical engineering).
The Computer Science rating includes 827 universities, including 4 Ukrainian ones; rating “Engineering Sciences and Technologies” – 1098 universities, including 8 Ukrainian.
