ANG MOH QUESTIONS NTU & NUS TOP RANKINGS IN QS 2018, ACCUSES RANKING OF BEING SHADY

First impressions suggest it is almost laughably inaccurate. UC Berkeley at #27? This is the same university that is affiliated with 91 Nobel Laureates, 13 Fields Medals, 23 Turing Awards and 16 elements of the Periodic Table. The rest of the ranking seems similarly strange as well; NUS and NTU ranked right alongside or higher than Princeton, Cornell, Yale, Columbia and Johns Hopkins? I know these universities have made rapid strides in funding and encouraging cutting edge research, so perhaps it’s inevitable that they’ve caught up and surpassed the more well known Ivy League universities. That is obviously partly the case, but after digging around for a bit, there seems to be a whole host of articles about the flawed methodology and downright shady practices of the QS organisation.

LIFE SCIENCE PHD FROM NUS AND NTU NO MATCH FOR OVERSEAS UNI

As was my opinion in countless other threads of such nature, I maintain that Ph.D in life science especially from NUS/NTU isn't really useful despite what the government likes to say. Singapore, despite whatever, is not a research hub and probably never will be because we are small, our education system do not encourage out of the box thinking and simply because this is not a research hotbed.

Have u all ever been to the university campus of MIT/Harvard or Cambridge? Their very air sizzles with innovation. I am not joking. Have u ever been to NUS or NTU?In Singapore people do a Phd because they are worried that with just a life sci degree they can only wash test tubes, or they are attracted by the idea of a 3K salary not knowing what else to do. It's very different from other good research universities in the world where people do PhDs REALLY because they like to know more about something. These folks spend 7-8 years doing their phd without an attractive pay B/c they really want to learn from some really smart profs in an area they are really interested in.

NTU PROF SUFFERS MENTAL BREAKDOWN, TURNS TO SHOPLIFTING

A professor at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) pleaded guilty to shoplifting yesterday after he was caught stealing repeatedly from service stations he frequents. The professor, 55 year old Er Meng Joo, shoplifted items worth $453.35 between Jan 9 and 29, last year. He is a professor in electrical and electronic engineering, and had won multiple awards at the university.

The professor stole items such as air fresheners and toiletries from two NTUC FairPrice outlets at Esso service stations at Bukit Timah and Dunearn roads. Just what drove a top award winning professor, who probably earns more than enough to actually pay for his stolen items, to go around and shoplift? Too stressed until he suffers from a mental breakdown?
