The De La Salle University (DLSU) and University of the Philippines (UP) were included in the list of the world's best universities for Physical Sciences by the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2022.


DLSU placed in the 801-100 bracket, while UP was included in the 1000+ bracket.

In a statement, DLSU College of Science Dean Dr. Glenn Alea hailed the inclusion of the University.

"We are delighted that DLSU is recognized once again for its quality research in the Physical Sciences. I congratulate the faculty, students, and staff of the College of Science and other units in the University who have contributed to this achievement," Alea said.

He also urged the community to remain committed in the pursuit of new knowledge in the fields of mathematics and statistics, chemistry, physics, environmental sciences, and marine sciences.

"Our outputs will hopefully lead to innovations that will shape and influence society, help the poor and the marginalized and improve the quality of life," Alea added.

Meanwhile, the University of California, Berkeley topped the rankings.

This year, 1,227 institutions met the criteria to be included in the Physical Sciences subject rankings.

Among the criteria used by THE to assess the schools are research resources, global outlook, productivity, and impact.
