What Hanyang Excels


Sixth in Overall Assessment Among Korean Universities

Hanyang University was ranked sixth among 115 colleges and universities in 1999, in an evaluation conducted by the influential vernacular daily JoongAng Ilbo.

In the evaluation, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) placed first, Pohang University of Science and Technology took the second spot, followed by Seoul National University, Yonsei University and Korea University in third, fourth and fifth place, respectively.

A spokesman said, ``Our university was placed third among private Korean universities.'' Yonsei and Korea are private universities.

The evaluation was made in five categories _ research activities of the professors (maximum 130 points), education environment and facilities (120 points), financial statement (110 points), management (110 points), public recognition (50 points) and reform (90 points).

The engineering colleges, in particular, topped the list in terms of research projects professors won out of the university, he said, citing 5.64 projects per professor.

Hanyang was also ranked at the same position among Korean universities and 435th internationally in terms of the number of research papers registered with the 1998 Science Citation Index (SCI), which covers papers of professors carried in world science journals.

According to the survey on SCI, conducted by the Education Ministry, Hanyang leaped to 435th with 376 papers in 1998 from 473rd in the previous year. Seoul National University (SNU) placed 94th with 1,671 research papers, KAIST 155th, Yonsei 249th, Pohang 335th and Korea University at 367th.

3rd in Civil Engineering Department

Hanyang won third place, among 40 universities, following KAIST and SNU in the civil engineering department in an evaluation on each department by JoongAng Ilbo in 1999. The department of the 40 universities has a history of 10 years or more.

The department gained top position in the graduate division, third in the professor division, third in public recognition and fourth in the education environment.

The top post in the graduate division was attributed to the number of specialist civil engineers with 1,230 active in license possession, academic institutions, executive posts of businesses and officialdom. SNU and Yonsei trailed Hanyang in the division.

Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies Placed 2nd

The Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies (GAPS), founded in 1997 under the five-year graduate school development program to train international specialists, placed second, following Ewha Womans University, in an assessment on nine graduate schools on international relations by the Ministry of Education in January this year.

Hanyang gained high marks in diverse programs, education by native English speakers and the number of foreign professors and lecturers.

Nine universities have been operating graduate schools on international relations under the state financial support. They are Ewha, Hanyang, Kyunghee, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Korea, Yonsei, Seoul National and Chungang, based on the rankings given by the ministry.

The ministry pledged to subsidize 600 million won each to the graduate school of Hanyang and five others for high marks, with Ewha, the first place winner, awarded 900 million won.

GAPS has produced local managers, situation analysts and investment-trade experts who will play important roles in international organizations, government agencies, international businesses and nongovernment organizations.

A spokesman said that it is realizing its goal of training experts in the Asia-Pacific region with concentrations on China, Russia, the United States and Japan which are influential to Korea.

GAPS recruits 50 students for four specialized fields or studies every year. It is equipped with high-tech educational facilities such as multimedia rooms, a video conference room and language labs, which offer special lectures on foreign languages and international trade. …
