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

Çonvenant of all universities in Nigeria, what was the yardstick they used in the ranking ?

I know for certain that Egypt and South Africa have better CS schools than Nigeria. I won't be surprised if Algeria, Ghana, Morocco, Tunisia, etc. have as well.

There is a lot to work on from an infrastructure point of view. CS needs to be introduced early to children, let them gain an understanding on basic programming concepts, then they can move onto mainstream CS stuff when in the University.

CS is such a huge field but we don't have the qualified people in Nigeria to teach it in depth. Most qualified Nigerians are abroad.

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...


Statsocial my man. The man with the data grin grin

Are you sure your not eventually going to be in the academic community (prof in the making).

I forgot to also mention Kenya and Uganda who I assume would have better CS schools than Nigeria as well and possibly Tanzania.

What kind of CS research have they done to be a strong CS uni in Nigeria compared to other Unis in Africa? Have they developed anything special. What kind of CS funding do they have?

For those of us in the actual field of Computational Science, I'm finding this hard to believe. I also believe that schools in Algeria, Morocco, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and possibly Ghana are better for CS than schools in Nigeria.

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.

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)


Financial records grin

That is difference between light and darkness for any Nigerian Uni.
Transparency is a by word with them

That one should be removed as a criteria biko

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
Some time ago Covenant University developed an Evolution Proof Insecticide through her Molecular Lab at the request and funding of NIH, USA but most Nigerians are too distracted for such news. So we are there making our silent strides jejely.

CU has the latest info and cut edge technology as far as education is concern in the world today. We are not talking about pentium 2 computers in our public universities. CU is fat becoming the Harvard of Africa..

Can Nigeria please hand over the running of the Nigeria educational system to Winners Chapel..we are tired of a mediocre educational system were almost nothing works as it ought to.
At least CU is leading the frontline in Nigeria and has proven that it is possible to get it right and compete at the highest level of intellectual advancement and development.

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

The exact thing I'm aiming for but much broader(Hospitals,Family,Environment) and the same challenges you are faced with.

Data is the new Gold cheesy

If you look at the original post, it's not all of Africa, Only RSA, Egypt and Nigeria are selected. Yet there are other countries in Africa with far better infrastructure putting out far better computer scientists.

You can not tell me with a Straight face that Kenya which is years ahead of Nigeria in Technology has worse Computer Science instutitions.

This is great. Elsevier is very good. But it's just one journal. And this is just one department. There are better journals with higher impact factors. And research is definitely not cheap. I'm not a hater,,,, okay bye
