HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The 2010 National Research Council ranking of graduate programs has listed the UH Manoa physics department among the top 12 in the nation.
UH joins the prestigious list alongside Harvard, Berkeley, MIT and Princeton, programs all several times the size of Manoa.
The UH graduate program has come a long way since its No. 81 NRC ranking back in 2005.
The UH Manoa physics program earned high marks in the three most heavily-weighted standards: the fraction of faculty with research grants, faculty productivity in terms of scientific publications and citations per publication, which measure the impact of the published result.
The UH physics department consists of 16 professors and 28 graduate students.
