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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
