NTU Accomplishments and Outcomes

Being a Top 100 University in both QS and THE Rankings at our 92th Anniversary

Under the leadership of its successive presidents since its founding 92 years ago, NTU has made tremendous progress in its goal to become a global Top 100 university. Back in its 80th anniversary in 2008, then-NTU president Lee Si-Chen put forward the goal to enter the Top 100 rank, and surely enough, NTU earned a 95th place in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) rankings the following year. Not only has NTU maintained a spot in the top 100 since then, it also has improved over the years, last ranking 66th in 2021.

In 2020, the Times Higher Education (THE) published its 2021 rankings, placing NTU 97th, its first time among THE’s Top 100. Such honors from two separate charts in the same year is not just a testament to the community effort at NTU, it is also a nod of recognition from the international higher education landscape. By our 100th anniversary in 2028, we hope to earn a spot among the global Top 50.
