The QS World University Rankings: Asia 2024 are now live!

In the 16th edition of the QS World University Rankings: Asia 2024, 856 institutions are showcased from 25 countries and territories – India is now the most represented higher education system, with 148 featured universities (30 more than last year). Followed by China with 133 and Japan with 96.

Peking University tops the rankings for another year as the region’s best university.

QS Vice President, Ben Sowter said: “This year’s ranking is the largest ever, featuring a record number of Asian universities. Not only does this reflect a flourishing and intensely competitive higher education ecosystem but facilitates evermore granular analysis of its institutions, allowing informed selection by students and targeted improvements by the region’s university leaders and policymakers.”

Top ten in QS World University Rankings: Asia 2024
This year’s top 10 performers in the QS World University Rankings: Asia 2024 are:

1) Peking University

2) The University of Hong Kong

3) National University of Singapore (NUS)

4) Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU)

4) Tsinghua University

6) Zhejiang University

7) Fudan University

8) Yonsei University

9) Korea University

10) The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK)

Peking University comes in first place with 100 points overall – scoring highly in indicators such as ‘Academic reputation’ (100) and both ‘Employer reputation’ and ‘Staff with PhD’ (99.8). As the University of Hong Kong makes an impressive climb from being ranked fourth place in the previous year (now second), the university ranked greatly within categories ‘International faculty’ (100), ‘Outbound exchange students’ (100) and ‘International students’ (99.9).

Overviewing more excellence within the top 10 QS World University Rankings: Asia 2024, these institutions have achieved outstanding scores in various areas of institutional performance – including National University of Singapore (NUS) and Tsinghua University with 100 in ‘Academic reputation’, Zhejiang University with 99.8 in ‘International research network’ and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU) with 100 in ‘Citations per paper’ (the only institution to earn a flawless result in this indicator within the top 10 list.)

Top 100 in regional performance
Of the top 100 in this year’s rankings, we’ve highlighted some of the notable performances by universities in different locations in the region:

  • China’s research impact makes it the most influential research hub in Asia. The QS measure of research impact, ‘Citations per Paper’, places 24 Chinese universities in the top 50 of the regions, four times the next best location. This research is underpinned by intense levels of international collaboration, in which 15 universities are in the top 50 for International Research Network, twice that of the next top-performing location.
  • Malaysia has an exceptional concentration of top-quality universities, with 22% of its institutions ranking among Asia’s top 100. When compared to any other location with more than 10 ranked universities, this is the highest proportion.
  • Universities in Japan are among the most prestigious in the region, both for academics and employers. The University of Tokyo (14th) is Asia’s leading university according to both Employer and Academic Reputation scoring 100 equally. Meanwhile, Kyoto University (17th) places the second highest in Asia for Employer Reputation (99.9) and sixth among academics.
  • Kazakhstan ranks higher than any other Central Asian country, with 34 ranked universities – which is twice as many as its closest competitor, Uzbekistan (with 14 universities ranked). Kazakhstan is also the only Central Asian country with an institution listed among the top 100. Namely, Al-Farabi Kazakh National University (ranked 29th) and L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University (ENU) ranked 71st.
New entrants
A total of 148 institutions are featured in the QS World University Rankings: Asia 2024 for the first time ever – among those excelling in certain categories in the top 300 include North Eastern Hill University and Yamanashi University with a shared score of 100 in ‘Faculty student’, Islamic Azad University with 100 in ‘International research network’ and Shiraz University of Technology with 100 in ‘Staff with PhD’.

Sowter also added that “Asian higher education continues to expand exponentially in scale and remains one of the fastest growing sectors in the world. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in India, which surpasses China for its number of ranked universities. Meanwhile, the economic landscape of the region remains perennially and uniquely dynamic, with economic miracles and challenges creating an equally dynamic higher education environment.”

Testing the Y-20's wing ensemble until it breaks at 112% of design spec. C919 tests would be even harsher. This is the state of Chinese industry!
no exports to foreign markets a highly dubious profitability of C919 in fact in modern sales Y-20 has not sold abroad and despite Chinese propaganda the C919 uses wetern engines showing the fact economics are important in ticket price

C919 already has 1000+ orders from domestic market, the Y20 also has 200 to 300 orders from PLA.

It would taks 10 yrs for finishing those orders and cost down everything, plus 3 or 4 times of upgrading.

Continental size entity like USA, EU, China, India, the local demands are always 1st priority.

People.from peripheral nation like Mexico would never understand.

Even u take the export so seriously, u didn't notice that Mexico trading was always on deficit.

Exports are just an extra economic driver for China.

The main driver for production in China is internal demand -- by far:

But that extra driver is pretty powerful :)

China is a special country. It is a continental size economy that consumes FAR more than even the consumer-driven US and EU but still exports more than export-driven countries like Japan and South Korea.

Best of both worlds.

AECC which makes Chinese civilian aero engines and whose main products will be the CJ1000 and CJ2000 for narrow- and wide-body passenger jets will be issuing IPO in the coming years. Confidence is very high. Few countries would be able or willing to commit to an industry like this :)

people from the perephery yes the chinese thinks he is special and superior.

C919 is not a sucess fiorst because it uses western subsystems, it has lower parameters to A220 or A321XLR which means no real Chinese airliner is offered with Chinese subsystems and even the ones witrh western subsystems are not to private owners basically C919 is bought by the same entity it builds it.



As developing countries weigh the consequences of borrowing heavily from China for major infrastructure projects, anti-corruption officials in Nepal have begun an investigation into a flagship airport financed and built by Chinese state-owned companies.


Nepal’s $216 million international airport in Pokhara, the country’s second-biggest city, opened in January. China agreed to provide loans to build the airport more than a decade ago. Nepal tapped China CAMC Engineering, the construction arm of a state-owned conglomerate, Sinomach, as the contractor.




The airport has failed to attract any regular international flights, raising concerns about whether it will generate enough revenue to repay loans to its Chinese lenders. Nepali officials have asked Beijing to change the loans into a grant to ease the financial burden, but China has not agreed to do so.

Last month, The New York Times reported that CAMC had inflated the cost of the project and undermined Nepal’s efforts to maintain quality control, putting a priority on its own business interests. Nepal’s Civil Aviation Authority, the agency overseeing the airport’s construction, did not put up much resistance — reluctant to upset Beijing on an important project for both countries

China, EU, India are cores of theirs own ecosystem, Mexico is not, ur are peripheral nation to others, so u don't understand the importance building a big system than making money for subsystem. I don't blame you.

For western subsystems, it's the marketing strategy to involve more and more stakeholders from western into the game, also for FAA certificatation around the world.

Don't pretend as "i know better than aviation experts and the whole aviation industry over the world", You are just a fan without enough economic knowledge base.
