Asian universities move up in world rankings

Survey finds regional higher education institutes perform best in engineering and technology

JAKARTA -- One of the world's leading university ranking systems has found significant improvement in Asia's tertiary education institutions over the past year, although long-established Western bodies continue to dominate the field in most key academic subjects. 

QS Quacquarelli Symonds, a London-based group, published its 2017 rankings covering 1,127 universities from 74 countries across 46 subjects. Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, described as "perennial rivals" by QS, led all universities in the field in 15 and 12 subjects, respectively.
