Evaluation of Research Strength

The strength of research programs are evaluated and identified based on the following three criteria:

  • Uniqueness, quality and stature: Programs must have international recognition and acclaim, high impact, and make major contributions from original and innovative research. 
  • Productivity: High quality programs show consistent and successful levels of productivity.
  • Capacity building: Programs show evidence of added, or have the potential to add, research capacity and critical mass. They are integrated with the strategic research plans of the college and the university and have institutional commitment and support.
