Academics featured in the rankings of a number of research fields, such as information systems, industrial engineering, business and management, nanotechnology, applied physics, materials, electric engineering, and operations research.
Out of the 10 UNNC academics listed in the rankings, Professor Patrick Chau, Vice Provost for Research and Knowledge Exchange, and Professor Alain Yee Loong Chong, Dean of Graduate School and Global Engagement, are both ranked worldwide in the top 100 in the information systems discipline. Within China, they are ranked in 1st place and 3rd place respectively. In the field of Business and Management, Professor Antony Paulraj ranked 5th in China.
