Top 10 African Universities In Computer Science: Covenant University Ranked by Nobody: 5:08pm On Jan 12
Elsevier SciVal
Covenant University has maintained her preeminent position in the field of Computer Science among Nigerian universities, according to latest computations by Elsevier SciVal, the world acclaimed ready-to-use solution that offers easy access to the research performance of 8,500 research institutions and 220 countries worldwide.

In the current rankings of African institutions in the field of Computer Science (Miscellaneous) by SciVal, Covenant was ranked 3rd in the continent behind the University of Johannesburg (South Africa) which was ranked 1st, and the University of Cairo (Egypt) ranked 2nd.

The assessment, spanning the period between 2012 and 2017, showed that Covenant had 54 publications, 61 authors, and 28 citations.

Good news.
I have nothing against performing private universities. It is when people bash them unjustly out of their insecurity that I get defensive.

Great stuff. But the koko right now is for them to make top 1000 universities on Times. The friggin OAU would also be assessed by Times this year. I hope they don't make it o at least not this year grin.

But then if UNN with the highest citations in Nigeria hasn't made top 1000 then I don't think OAU would make it for now-if UNN can shed UG population it would give UI a run for its money.

Really OAU would be assessed? How do they do the thing self? How many schools are being considered?

Not only OAU, it includes UI(already on the list), UNN, Unilag, OAU and Covenant.

Every year when it's time to collect all the data. Each university from Harvard to Standford, MIT even to University Of Ibadan and every other Uni that are being considered would turn their Financial, Academic and admission record to Times Higher. The record would for example include all the money realised from research, and industry collaboration. Total number of staff and students. Number of international faculty and students, number of academic staff that have PhD and got it from the University.

Then Times would send 18000 surveys to the best Researchers across top notch Institutions Globally - Presumably to US, Europe and some in Asia. The researchers would be asked to pick the current best universities in their field of work e.g Prof. Melissa Franklin of Nuclear Physics, Harvard would have to pick top institutions in Nuclear Physics(Research and Teaching) she may return Harvard, Oxford, MIT and Caltech on the survey. Then it would be tallied(Nigerian Universities rank severely low here barely getting 1% score)

Then they use bibliometric/webometric tools to extract all research work ever produced by universities in consideration between the last five years and obtain Citations, Research Co-Authorship, Research Volume etc

After that, they would now exclude any University in Consideration that does not have at least 1000 research work publication(indexed by SCOPUS) and minimum of 150/year in the past five years.

The Result are then interpreted and audited by Price Water Cooper House(PwC) and released-So you see why it is completely trusted by Governments because it is a very rigorous process.(over 95% of US higher Institutions don't make the top 1000 rank)

Lol well the majority of Universities globally don't go on strike. How do you compare Harvard and Stanford on academic stability-it would be a useless parameter. But there was a meeting in Uni of Johannesburg months ago between Times and selected VCs about a bespoke ranking for African Universities exclusively-it could have been raised.

For now I am also trying to build a local rank for Nigerian universities in collaboration with some Lecturers using much of the template of Times and then adding some things to it like NOTAP records and all. The major problem I'm faced with is this SciVal of a thing. It cost lots of money to have access to data analytics like this. I think only Covenant has access to it in Nigeria-It allows you monitor all research work in every corner of the world just at ur fingertips.

Hmm, All for mere ratings.

In my place of work, i have lots of graduates who majored in computer science and do not even know what a Router or Switch is let alone know how to write a single program or script.
In Nigeria right now, Computer science is still under rated.
I finished from OOU Ago Iwoye and all through my four years in school i never had the opportunity to even see our computer Lab. I groomed myself with personal trainings and research. Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates were both drop outs from Havard Uni, they developed themselves personally, same goes with Seun Osewa of Nairaland.
What am i driving at? It's just that becoming a real computer scientist takes a lot of personal endeavor than going through the four walls of a Uni.

Kudos
But what is the point of all the ranking and noise if we dont start seeing application of all this stuff learnt
We need people to keep challenging the status quo in all fields in Nigeria , computer science is one of the easiest to achieve such feat .
Nigeria would be great !.
Lets appreciate the little progress and strongly criticize mediocrity
We Nigerians like medicriity too much , we have been deeply soaked in darkness so much that when we see light as tiny as that from the hole of a pinhole camera , we celebrate it so much that we forget that we are still covered in darkness .
Bottom line : celebrate the success and get back to work , enough of the noise , talk less and do more .
God bless Nigeria and bless you too reading kiss
