University of Malawi ranked 99 out of 100 African universities

The Spanish based Ranking Web of Universities the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities has ranked University of Malawi 99 out of 100 universities in Africa. The top five universities are Cairo, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Pretoria and Kwazulu Natal.

The researchers say the rankings are biased against technologies, computer science, social sciences and humanities disciplines that usually amount for more than half of the scholars and students in a standard comprehensive university.

“Webometrics also measure, in an indirect way, other missions like teaching or the so-called third mission, considering not only the scientific impact of the university activities, but also the economic relevance of the technology transfer to industry, the community engagement (social, cultural, environmental roles) and even the political influence” says the statement on web.
