Asian University Research Excellence and the March toward
WorldClass Status
Graduate education and research within higher education systems across Asia have dramatically expanded and
strengthened in the past two decades. Several Asian countries are now recognized as home to one or more world
class universities. At the same time, a number of middle income countries in Asia have articulated the desire to have
a worldclass university and some have established concrete plans toward that end. In this talk I discuss the Asian
model of worldclass university and some of the rationale of governments working to establish worldclass
universities in their countries. I then discuss research strengths of Asian universities and show how traditional
university rankings mask much of the underlying research strengths. I argue that an accurate picture requires
programmatic analysis rather than institutional or even broad area analysis. I present analyses that uncover pockets
of excellence across a much wider range of universities than previously known, showing that Asian universities may
be progressing in research more rapidly than commonly perceived.

Analyses presented in this talk are taken from the newly released report Higher Education in Asia: Expanding Out,
Expanding Up, UNESCO Institute for Statistics, 2014. (www.uis.unesco.org)

Biografie
Peter Haddawy received a BA in Mathematics from Pomona College in 1981 and MSc and PhD degrees in Computer Science
from the University of IllinoisUrbana in 1986 and 1991, respectively. He was tenured Associated Professor in the
Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of WisconsinMilwaukee, and Director of the
Decision Systems and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory there through 2002. Subsequently, he served as Professor of
Computer Science and Information Management at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) through 2010 and the Vice
President for Academic Affairs from 2005 to 2010. He served in the United Nations as Director of UNUIIST from 2010
through 2013. Professor Haddawy has been a Fulbright Fellow, Avery Brundage Scholar, and Shell Oil Company Fellow. His
research falls in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and Scientometrics and he has published over 100 refereed papers. His
recent research has focused on intelligent medical training systems and Computational Scientometrics. His work in the
latter area has involved developing novel computational analytical techniques and applying them to support research policy
and strategy formulation. He has produced several influential policy studies for the European Commission and UNESCO,
has run numerous international workshops on research performance evaluation, published numerous articles in the top
journals in Scientometrics, and lead the development of the United Nations University's Global Research Benchmarking
System. He currently holds a professorship in the Faculty of ICT at Mahidol University in Thailand and serves as advisor in
the Office of the President.
