The QS World University Rankings by Subject is an extensive independent comparative analysis on the performance of 13,883 individual university programs, taken by students at 1,440 universities in 85 locations across the world, across 51 academic disciplines.
Four components – academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations per paper, and the H-index – are used to rank universities in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021. Apart from academic and employer reputation, the QS World University Rankings by Subject measures ‘citations per paper’ rather than ‘citations per faculty member’ for more reliability in statistics. The H-index is a way of measuring both the productivity and impact of the published work of a scientist or scholar. It is based on the set of the academic’s most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications.
Khalifa University already ranks at #211 in the QS World University Rankings 2021, which features 1,029 of the most prestigious universities in the world.
