Sungkyunkwan University ranked 100th in the QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) World University Rankings 2019 this year, rising from 108th last year. It has risen 79 spots from 179th place over the last 6 years. SKKU also maintained 3rd place in the ranking of domestic universities in Korea. SKKU scored 88.3 points in Faculty/Student Ratio (85.1 points last year), 43.5 points in Citations per Faculty (37.9 points last year), and 34 points in International Students (27.6 points last year), showing a steady upward trend in the overall evaluation index.

 

On the other hand, five Korean universities were listed in the world's top 100 in this year's QS world university rankings. Seoul National University ranks 36th, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology 40th, Pohang University of Science and Technology 83rd, Korea University 86th, and Sungkyunkwan University 100th. Sungkyunkwan is a new entrant by rising eight notches from last year.

 

Fifteen Korean universities are in the top 400, with Hanyang University moving up four notches to 151st and Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology 315th.

 

Kyu Sang CHUNG, the President of Sungkyunkwan University, said, “For the past several years, SKKU has been devoted to creating synergy through the mutual growth of education and research by supporting integrated research and recruiting world-class scholars as professors to introduce a global-standard education system. Furthermore, this year’s achievement is mainly accredited to concentrated investments made in the last 20 years in the research sector, where we have strengthened industry-university collaboration with Samsung and recruited many quality professors in science and engineering. We will spare no effort to become a world-class university. We will strive to open a new era of SKKU as  a Global leading university together with students, faculty, and alumni as well.”

 

SKKU is implementing creative convergence education, such as multidisciplinary approaches and specialized academic-industrial cooperative education, that will lead the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In particular, SKKU is expanding academic-industrial courses of study, such as convergent foundation projects, fusion capstone design, and integrated team field training in order to connect students’ creative business ideas to enterprises. Also, in cooperation with small businesses, SKKU has created excellent results by releasing about 20 commercialized products and submitting more than 30 patent proposals every year.
