The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) has become the world’s 140th ranked university following recent rankings announcements from Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
As Australia’s number 1 ranked young university (under 50 years of age), UTS has an enviable reputation with employers and industry. It has been on a trajectory of advancement - in just eight years it has jumped a tremendous 144 places in the global analysis of university performance by higher education analysts QS.
QS uses six indicators to compile rankings: academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty (measuring research impact), faculty/student ratio, international faculty ratio and international student ratio.
Employer reputation is the highest-ranked indicator for UTS in the latest assessment, while part of the 20-place progress in UTS’s world ranking has been driven by increases in academic reputation and citations per faculty.
“It’s pleasing to see our QS ranking continue to reflect the increased recognition of UTS internationally as a university producing high-quality, globally-respected research that makes significant economic, environmental, cultural and social impact,” said UTS Vice-Chancellor Attila Brungs.
“It augments and complements the result of last month’s 2019 CWTS Leiden quantitative ranking of world universities that saw UTS leading Australia for high-quality outcomes.”
