UTS top-ranked young university

The Sax Institute congratulates the University of Technology Sydney on its success in being rated the top young university in Australia and within the top 250 universities globally.

UTS, which one of the Institute’s member organisations, headed the list of Australia’s young universities in the latest Times Higher Education THE 150 Under 50, a ranking of the world’s top universities under 50 years of age.

For the second year in a row UTS was named number one in Australia and 21 in the world in the THE ranking. Australia was the second most-represented country with 19 institutions included.

UTS also occupies the top spot in Australia in a second young universities ranking, the QS Top 50 Under 50.

“These rankings are evidence of the depth of quality and excellence in Australian unis – young, dynamic universities with global impact,” said UTS Vice-Chancellor Professor Attila Brungs.

“While rankings are only one measure of success, to be regarded as the best young university in Australia, and 21st in the world, for the second year in a row is a great achievement. Importantly it shows what innovative thinking and creative approaches over the past decade by UTS staff can achieve.”

The Times Higher Education 150 Under 50 Rankings draw upon 13 performance indicators around research, teaching, knowledge transfer and international activity. These include what THE claims as the world’s largest invitation-only academic reputation survey and the examination of more than 11 million research papers.
