TUM among the top 50 worldwide in four subject areas

Klaus Becker Corporate Communications Center
Technische Universität München

    The Technical University of Munich (TUM) again ranks among the 50 best universities in the world in computer science, engineering, natural and life sciences. These are among the results of the THE World University Rankings by Subject. The highest position achieved by TUM is in computer science, where it is ranked 14th.

    For the rankings compiled by the British publication Times Higher Education, scientists around the world are surveyed on the reputation of universities in research and teaching. In addition, the rankings incorporate data such as the number of publications per researcher, citations per publication, the teacher-student ratio, third-party funding raised from the private sector and the degree of internationalization. These indicators are weighted according to the prevailing culture in the various subject areas.

    As in the previous year, TUM is ranked 14th worldwide in computer science and rises to the 4th position in Europe. In almost every other subject area, it moved up several positions. In engineering and physical sciences it now ranks 22nd and 23rd worldwide, respectively, and is thus among the top 10 in Europe in both of these areas. The physical sciences include chemistry, physics, mathematics, earth and environmental sciences, among other subjects. In the life sciences – comprising such disciplines as biology, agriculture and sport science – TUM ranks 43rd. Business and Economics moved up significantly to the 55th position, Clinical and Health reached 59th overall. In its first inclusion in the Education rankings, TUM immediately placed 66th.

    In the recently published main edition of the THE World University Rankings, based on overall assessments of universities, TUM rose to the 38th position worldwide and number 10 in Europe. TUM also regularly achieves excellent results in other international subject rankings. It is among the top 50 universities in 10 subjects in the QS World University Rankings by Subject and in nine subjects in the Global Rankings of Academic Subjects (Shanghai Ranking). In the Global University Employability Ranking, in which companies rate the quality of graduates, TUM is ranked 12th worldwide.
