    “heck”

    you meant “check”? I am not trying to correct you, i just really do not have sure if you meant “check” or not.

    “heck” is a colloquial term in American English. One could even say, “heck fire” if emphatic meaning is intended. IMO, hpeak13’s use of “heck” in this instance is nothing short of genious.

    I think this ranking lacks of knowledge about most of institutions.

    The UFSM ranked(national brazilian ranking) 1√Ǭ∫ in Computing Science on the ENADE, received maximum score on the Enade(http://www.inf.ufsm.br/index/destaques/noticias/curso-de-ciencia-da-computacao-obtem-nota-maxima-no-enade) and Unicamp its betwen the 100best of the world on the –>Computer Science & Information Systems
    So UFSM should be too, the problem is that UFSM is situated on a tiny city without industries and week labor market based only on services and public sector, and a not so well known city on the country, much less in the world, so there is probably a big leack of data about UFSM on these rankings. And USP and Unicamp aresituated on big cities(Campinas1.3million SaoPaolo10million) And Campinas is almost conurbated with Sao Paolo, so the acess of these cities by foreigners is a lot bigger.
    And the UFSM cc and si discipline grade its almost identical to the Unicamp. If its identical and the students scored the same on ENADE, so it must be the same.
    In Brazil the best informatics professional goes to teaching because the market is garbage due to our economyc model and bureaucracy, and most of them are PHD, and theyr salary is at least as high or higher as the highest payed salarys to the most experienced software engineers. So the best professionals are definetely teaching.
    It is for sure that this ranking is undermining countries that does not have english as its natural language, because it makes alot harder to gather data and to rate the quality. As you can see italy and Spain and even Germany are not so well on the ranking too, if compared to UK, and i think Japan is undermined too.

    Japan has twice the population of UK and has a considerably higher HDI, and the gdp per capita of Japan is considerably bigger than UK.

    Japan Probably has 3times more great universities than UK.

    I guess I wonder, what is the ranking based on? If you think a ranking of universities is intended to measure the quality of the education provided at these institutions, you’ve missed the boat altogether.

    Yep. That is what i was trying to say. But it should atleast give you an idea. In UFSM most of the teachers have atleast 2 or 3 gaduations with a PHD on one and a master degree on other, some of them take theyr PHD on first wold countries and others on UFRGS(the 1st in teaching in ENADE Bazil rankig). But it depends too on infraestructure, and students performance.

    Sounds like they have some pieces of paper that aren’t worth much other than propping up their self-esteem, if that.

    You said before ” If you think a ranking of universities is intended to measure the quality of the education provided at these institutions, you’ve missed the boat altogether.”

    Then you said: Sounds like they have some pieces of paper that aren’t worth much other than propping up their self-esteem, if that.
    So that is a controversy. You are measuring this teachers by the ranking, at the same time that you say that the ranking can’t measure the quality of the education provided at these institutions.
    Doesn’t worth much? theyr salary is gigantic for Brazilian standards, it is 17minium salaries.

    I notice a few things on these lists.
    1. Most top ranked Brazilian universities are run on Government dime. Federal this, Estadual that ….so if Big G isn’t footing the Bill, there is no College worth a lick attending, except for maybe the Catholic PUCs. They rest must be private Diploma Mills. There might be a correlation to, rank or no rank, rich folk still send their offsprings overseas for decent education.
    2. No College Towns on the list, except maybe for Santa Maria, RS. Then again in the US, Canada, and Europe, you have so many College Towns
    3. How spread apart Dept buildings were on these campi photo shoots, even when all departments are on the same land parcel. Every dept is an isle onto itself. No cluster, no multi disciplinary exchange of ideas. The larger the building, the more bureaucracy prowess on display.
