Achievement


The Department

Our research in Mathematics and Statistics have achieved remarkable recognition since 2009. According to The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2014 conducted by the University Grants Committee of Hong Kong, 71% of AMA’s research has achieved a 4- or 3- star rating i.e. ‘world leading’ or ‘Internationally excellent’ by international standards.


In 2015, Mathematics in PolyU was ranked the top 100 by The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), and listed as the highly cited institutions by ISI Essential Science Indicators (ESI) for the first time.


In 2017, the U.S. News rankings listed PolyU the 67th Best Global Universities 2017 in the subject of Mathematics. From the ranking recently released by the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Ranking 2017, PolyU is listed the world top 100 in the subject of Mathematics for two consecutive years and the world top 44 in the Statistics and Operational Research.
