The latest data from ESI ( Essential Science Indicator) released by Thomson Reuters on 15th July, 2016 showed that UESTC has four disciplines that rank among the ESI top 1%, namely, Engineering Science, Computer Science, Material Science and Physics, among which Engineering Science has made itself to the top 1‰.

ESI database ranks 22 disciplines according to the times of citation of the paper every institution published in SCI/SSCI and updates its data every two months with one decade as a statistical period. This time the statistical period ranges from 1st January, 2006 to 30th April, 2016.

As for the discipline of Engineering Science, there are 1244 institutions in the whole world ranking among the top 1% in ESI, with UESTC being 121st , ranking 9.7% and among the top 1‰ globally. For this discipline , UESTC ranks 15th among mainland China with Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Harbin Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University and Xi'an Jiaotong University being in  the ESI top 1%, among which Tsinghua University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, ranking 7th and 11th globally , have entered the ESI top 0.1‰.

As for Computer Science, there are 385 institutions in the ESI top 1% with UESTC being 138th , ranking 3.6‰ globally; as for Material Science, there are 751 institutions in the ESI top 1% with UESTC being 380th , ranking 5.1‰ globally; as for Physics, there are 704 institutions in the ESI top 1% with UESTC being in 519th , ranking 7.4‰ globally.

Engineering Science is UESTC’s first discipline entering the ESI top 1%. Now its entering the ESI top 1‰ has demonstrated that the development of UESTC’s EI-featured engineering disciplines is extraordinary and radiating spectacular academic influence, which has laid a solid foundation for USETC to achieve the goal of establishing her world-class discipline.
