Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) has once again secured the top position in the biannual Webometrics ranking among Polytechnics in Nigeria, according to the July 2023 release. This marks the sixth consecutive time the college has achieved this feat.
The announcement was made in a statement signed by Mr. Joe Ejiofor, Deputy Registrar of YABATECH, Lagos. The college’s remarkable performance includes moving up two steps, surpassing other universities, and widening the gap between the college and the first runner-up polytechnic by 17 steps. YABATECH has also shown improvement compared to its January 2023 position.
Webometrics ranking evaluates higher education institutions based on web content impact, top-cited researchers, and papers published on online research and publication platforms. The objective of this ranking is to promote open access to the knowledge generated by these institutions.
Mr. Ejiofor attributed this milestone success to the consistent support provided by the college’s management to relevant research units, particularly the Center for Information and Technology Management (CITM). The management ensured that CITM had the necessary tools to work professionally on the college’s website, facilitating the dissemination of knowledge within the academic community. The goal was to create an enabling environment for researchers to publish their journals on relevant high-impact platforms.
YABATECH implemented various strategies to enhance its ranking, focusing on increasing the quantity and quality of its web content. The college’s Rector, Dr. Ibraheem Abdul, who assumed office on May 22, 2023, had vowed to elevate the institution to the highest level of academic excellence.
Under his leadership, the college worked diligently to put in place the necessary structures that facilitated its growth and global recognition among its counterparts.
