Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) ranks number one on the list of Indonesia’s best universities released by the Research, Technology and Higher Education Ministry.

ITB tops the chart with a total score of 3,743, followed by Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta with a score of 3,690. In third place is the Bogor Institute of Agriculture, which scored 3,490.

Meanwhile, the University of Indonesia, which was recently named among the 100 best universities in Asia by education rating institution Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), secured the number four spot on the list with a score of 3,412.

The list was made for the first time by the ministry to encourage the improvement of higher education in Indonesia.

“We want to encourage higher education to develop academic and nonacademic capacities through the existence of this ranking system,” the ministry’s directorate general for science and higher education Patdono Suwignyo told recently.

The list is made based on four main criteria to measure the quality of a university. These criteria measure the quality of lecturers and human resources, the quality of management and organization, the quality of student’s events and the quality of research and scientific publications.
