ITS Campus, ITS News – Towards a world-class university, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) showing its class again by successfully entering the World University Rankings (WUR) ranking. Based on Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings 2020, ITS success paired itself with the ranks of the best universities from around the world and included in the top nine universities in Indonesia that have successfully entered the international ranking too.
THE itself is a credible institution of International University-level performance data. In this ranking, the category assessed is the University Impact Rankings, which is a university ranking related to contributions and achievements in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which includes four aspects of Research, Teaching, Stewardship, and Outreach.
Senior Manager of World Class University’s affairs, Rulli Pratiwi Setiawan ST. MSc Ph.D. said, the assessment not only on publication. The real action, scale, and impact of the various university activities associated with 17 objectives of SDGs are also the main points of ranking criteria. “The ranking published this year is to take data and evidence the year 2018 ago,” said Rulli.
Released in the Innovation & Impact Virtual Mini Summit and Live Rankings Launch which coincided with World Earth Day on 22 April 2020, ITS managed to rank in 401-600 from over 850 universities around the world following THE ranking of THE Impact Rankings. The rankings are the average achievement rankings of the four SDGs goals which ITS focused.
Rulli continued, the ranking is somewhat different from THE other categories of rating. The reason, in this ranking of each university can choose to fill the data and provide evidence for four objectives of SDGs. “of the 17 objectives of the SDGs, ITS chose three objectives namely the 5th, 9th and 16th objectives, whereas for the 17th purpose is the purpose of which must be filled data,” said the lecturer of regional and city Planning (PWK).
For a per-goal rating, bright Rulli, ITS value of 44.7 at the 5th SDGs (Gender Equality) and is at ranked of 201-300 from 548 campuses that fills this goal. At the 9th destination (Industry Innovation and Infrastructure), ITS got a value of 44.4 and is ranked at 201-300 from 494 campuses. In the 16th goal (Peace, Justice and Strong Institution), the ITS score is 55.8 in the ranked of 201-300 from 453 campuses. For the 17th goal (Partnership for the Goals), ITS got a score of 61.7 and ranked at 301-400 from 807 campuses.
Responding to this achievement, Rulli said that ITS must be satisfied. The reason, in the first year ITS participated in the Impact Rankings, there is a limited time in the filling and search of support data published. “At the time, the due date was very close to the managerial turnover in ITS environment, so we needed a lot of customization and had to learn a lot,” said Rulli.
In the future, the women who are also an alumnus of ITS are optimistic to be able to raise ITS rankings in THE category THE Impact Rankings. The filling experience in this first year became a valuable input and lesson to know the ins and outs of this rating. “We will continue to prepare better strategies and preparations as well as coordinate with the SDGs Study Center at ITS as well as ITS Smart Eco Campus Unit to be able to increase ITS rank in THE Impact Rankings,” she concluded.
