Still No 1!

For the third year in a row, the School has been awarded first place in Australia in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) world university subject rankings. Globally we are placed at Number 16 in the world, an amazing achievement, and the only Australian Civil School in 2017 to be included in the top 20.

Now in their seventh year, the QS World University Rankings by Subject is based on the expert opinion of almost 75,000 academics and more than 41,000 employers, alongside the analysis of 28.5 million research papers and over 113 million citations sourced from the Scopus/Elsevier bibliometric database.

UNSW has six subjects in the world top 20 including Civil and Structural Engineering, and Mining engineering, and 23 subjects in the world’s Top 50. 

Once again, all of UNSW Engineering subject areas have been placed in the coveted world’s top 50, with the Faculty overall placed at No 31.

UNSW itself has a 5+star ranking with QS, based on its achievements in eight categories: Research, teaching, facilities, access & inclusivity, employability, internationalisation, specialist excellence, and innovation.
