AIT ranks top in four engineering areas on research in Thailand, study says

29.06.2010
A recent study by Thai Research Fund (TRF) on the research output of Thai universities confirms that Thailand-based Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) excels in all engineering subject areas that it offers.

This is the first time AIT participated in Thailand’s nation-wide evaluation, based on the research output of 2007-2008.

In the recent official report received from TRF, AIT was rated the highest among all Thai universities in these four engineering subject areas: (1) Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, (2) Information and Communications Technology, (3) Environmental Engineering and Management, and (4) Industrial systems engineering.

The TRF Rating is based on the weighted average varied from 5 to 1 of the following four factors: (1) Equivalent international journal papers per faculty member (30%), (2) Journal impact factor per faculty member (20%), (3) Total equivalent international journal papers for the entire subject cluster (30%), and (4) Total journal impact factors for the entire subject cluster (20%).

AIT stands out in all "per-head" categories, i.e., (1) and (2), and this implies the highest order of research efficiency and quality of individual faculty members of AIT. Even based on TRF criteria, AIT’s engineering fields still receive the highest overall rating, despite the disadvantage of (3) and (4). As AIT is a post-graduate institution offering only Master’s and Doctoral Degrees, its faculty size and thus its overall research production cannot be as large as a comprehensive university.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
