马大重返最佳大学排行挽颜面
国大、理大及博大排名却下滑


资料整理自: http://malaysiakini.com/news/114532

针对马来亚大学跃进50个排名至180名,重新挤入今年的泰唔士报教育增刊世界200所最佳大学排名榜,民主行动党国会领袖林吉祥认为这只是“挽回一点颜面”,要成为具备卓越与国际竞争力的大学,仍有一大段距离。

马青总秘书蔡金星也表示,马大的表现可喜可贺,但该大学不应就此自满,因为前方的路还很远。

泰国大学超越马大42排名


林吉祥(左图)今日发表文告,列出6大原因证明我国大学要具备卓越与国际竞争力,仍有一大段的距离。

(一)这仍比马大在2004年的89及2005年的169排名差得多。马大在2006年再跌至192,而在2007及2008年跌出200最佳榜外,分别居246及230。

(二)在2005年6月,马大庆祝开办100周年纪念时,当时身为副首相的纳吉,挑战马大在2020年时跻入前50名之内。4年之后,马大跌了91个排名,尽管不像在2007年时那般跌157个排名,但是纳吉的挑战是否已成为“一个不可能的梦想”?

(三)马大被泰国的朱拉隆功大学远远的抛在後头,后者在2007年时排名223,到了2008年跃进至166,今年又进一大步至138。

(四)新加坡在过去5年一直有2所大学跻入最佳200排名榜内。在2009年,新加坡国大保持30的排名,而南大则从77进步至73。

国大理大博大排名皆下滑

(五)在排行榜的另外5个领域,即自然科学、社会科学、艺术与人文、生命科学与生物医药及工艺的50最佳大学排名上,也没有任何大马的大学上榜。但是在这5个领域的50所最佳大学的250个位置当中,却有49个是位于亚洲的大学。

(六)大马其他大学的排名都很差,除了工大外,国大、理大及博大的排名都比去年糟糕。国大从250跌至291;理大从313跌至314;博大从320跌至345;只有工大从356跃升至320。

促废除大学内新经济政策

林吉祥指出,政府必须结束大学中的“新经济政策”,全面恢复绩效制及学术卓越,再配合社会需求,不分种族地提供大学教育机会给经济落后者。

“政府必须承认,只要新经济政策仍存在于大学的一天,国内的政府大学就绝对无法与其他国家大学竞争的一天。”

他也主张,高教部长必须促内阁停止採用现有的高级教育文凭及预科班假绩效制,而採用一项共同的入学考试制。

“这是世界银行于2007年提呈予政府的‘大马及知识经济:打造一个世界级高教制度’研究的其中一项建议。”

泰国的大学都比我们优秀很多。 为何, 因为泰国的大学做很多研究,

马大被泰国的朱拉隆功大学远远的抛在後头,后者在2007年时排名223,到了2008年跃进至166,今年又进一大步至138。

那天遇到一个 朱拉隆功大学 的传播系学者, 发表研究课题, 真的感觉到什么叫水准,当然也有看过泰国北部的大学的学者, 程度不是很理想。
但是朱拉隆功大学真的很强, 它的biomedical在国际也是有权威性的。

其实如果我们还沉溺在公关化的口号 (APEX 大学) 和 研究做的还是很表面化的片刻

是无法超越格局的, 大马的国立大学, 只会恨铁不成钢。。。。。

其实大学的名誉, 很多时候不是建立在degree 也就是本科。

而是建立在研究和学术人员的素质和水准。。。。。

其实意味的想要大学好的学生, 到了大学, 只是读书还看power point 的notes 的话。。。那么就无法说人家了。

Universiti Malaya climbs 50 spots to No. 180 in THE-QS rankings

Universiti Malaya climbs 50 spots to No. 180 in THE-QS rankings
By KAREN CHAPMAN

PETALING JAYA: Universiti Malaya (UM) has put Malaysia back in the top 200 of the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) – QS World University Rankings 2009 when it climbed 50 places from last year to 180 this year.

QS managing director Nunzio Quacquarelli said the rankings identified not just the most highly-ranked universities in the world, but also the best performing universities in key subject areas, the universities most targeted by employers, those producing the best research, those investing in teaching and those with the most international profile.

Another local university that improved in rankings was Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), standing at 320 compared to 356 last year.

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) dropped between one and 41 places to 291, 314 and 345 respectively (see chart).

QS Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd Intelligence Unit head Ben Sowter said UM’s resurgence into the top 200 was clearly impressive.

“The apparent collective effort at the university to attract a greater proportion of international students suggests a progressive outlook,” he said in an e-mail interview.

Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin told The Star that the ministry knew the universities’ weaknesses were in citations per faculty and peer review.

Harvard University tops the rankings once again; followed by Cam­bridge, Yale, University College Lon­don, Imperial College, Oxford Univer­sity, Chicago University, Princeton Uni­­ver­­sity, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and California Insti­tute of Technology. The highest ranked Asian institutions in the rankings are Tokyo Uni­ver­sity (22), Hong Kong University (24), Kyoto University (25) and National Uni­versity of Singapore (30).

UM vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Ghauth Jasmon said the success would be a major boost to the morale and motivation of all staff and students to work harder.

“The redefinition of key performance indicators for the academics and the new initiatives implemented in international networking, recruitment of international staff and students have produced a quick, positive impact,” he said.

UTM vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Zaini Ujang said the improvement in the university’s rankings is a result of its strategy in networking, quality, strategic research, synergy and organisational culture.

On UKM’s drop from 250 to 291, its deputy vice-chancellor (Academic and International Affairs) Prof Dr Hassan Basri said the university was not surprised by the drop as THE-QS had indicated that the methodological adjustments and survey dynamics would significantly contribute to a drop in the scores for the academic peer review and employer survey criteria over a three-year period starting in the year 2008.

UPM vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Nik Mustapha R. Abdullah said he was surprised that the university’s rankings dropped as its achievements were better last year compared to previously.

 涉嫌抄襲出書 講師竟擢升教授

(檳城16日訊)檳州第二副首長拉瑪沙米爆料,曾經有涉嫌抄襲學術作品的學術人員,非但沒有得到應得懲罰,反而在轉往其他大學就職后,躍升成為教授!

曾在國民大學任職25年的拉瑪沙米表示,他在國大教書時,曾經發生過一名講師被揭發涉嫌抄襲之下,出版了多達10本學術作品,而其中也有作品是被國家語言及出版局收錄。

影響學術公信力

他在出席檳州政府916馬來西亞日慶典活動后,在記者會上指出,這名講師只是將外籍學術書本翻譯成馬來文,但沒有全文翻譯,反而隔著一個段落去逐字翻譯,在完成后便宣稱這是該講師的原作。

他表示,這名講師的行徑被揭發后,便離開國大轉到北方大學任職,但是這名講師在北大反而更獲賞識,成為該大學的教授。無論如何,他并不愿意透露詳情,包括這名教授在什麼系院授課。

他說,就大學作為知識殿堂而言,抄襲比偷竊書本是更嚴重的罪行,因為這樣的風氣足以影響一所大學的學術公信力。

冀高教部設委會

因此,為了表達他對著課題的重視,他將會在10月份的國會里,向高教部長提出有關這課題的提問,以要求高教部能夠更嚴正看待及處理我國大專學術人員,抄襲文化的問題。

他更將抄襲形容為我國國立及私立大專的嚴重通病,畢竟他在國大教書時就曾經捉拿過數名抄襲的大專生。但是,不只是大專生,講師、副教授和教授們都在抄襲。

他對高教部長期沒有解決這問題表示失望,并希望日前爆發2名博大講師涉抄襲案件后,高教部能成立一個委員會,解決這問題。

他不滿博大只是凍結2名涉抄襲講師的獎勵金,以及將此事記錄在他們的服務履歷表,並認為這2名講師應該立即被革職。

其实APEX university 不过是个公关手段而已。

回应我的话前, 看了 An Apex of Mediocrity?" by Khoo Boo Teik

理大政治学资深教授的文章在回应吧, 你可以回应他。 他写了这篇对APEX university的 批判VC 的警告信都收到了, 他也预料的吧。

如何APEX 如果连一个教授都融不下?
