AMMAN — Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) was recently ranked 73rd in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) Emerging Economies University Rankings 2018, a JUST statement said. 

The university gained 46 ranks compared to its previous year ranking of 119 out of 378 institutions from 42 countries classified as emerging economies. 

"JUST’s place in this ranking of the best research-led universities among the emerging economy nations is a significant achievement," the statement noted.

The THE Emerging Economies University ranking uses the same 13 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings, examining each university’s strengths against all of its core missions which are teaching, research, citations, knowledge transfer, industry links, international outlook and the ability of matching the educational outcomes with all sectors.

Saeb Khreisat, JUST president, said that this achievement is "the result of cumulative efforts by the university's staff and associates", stressing: "It would not have been possible without the efforts of the members of the teaching and administrative bodies since JUST inception to improve the university through openness and communication with prestigious universities in international forums, in order to achieve its strategy and reach the status of world class university."

He called on all to exert more efforts to achieve the vision of His Majesty King Abdullah of a "leading and distinguished higher education".

Established in 2004, The Times ranking system is one of the world's best university classification systems and one of the most reliable tools for governments and universities to evaluate academic institutions, the statement concluded.
