RWTH Achieves Top Results in THE Ranking – 100 out of 100 Points


RWTH Aachen University, one of Germany's Universities of Excellence, ranks among the world's best universities for engineering and computer science.


In the latest Times Higher Education (THE) ranking, a well-trusted source assessing university performance on the global stage, RWTH Aachen University has achieved excellent results with its subjects of Engineering and Computer Science. As in previous years, the University has again scored high marks in both scientific disciplines. In engineering, RWTH is ranked 30th among the best universities globally, meaning it was able to maintain its ranking from the previous year. Aachen's engineers particularly stand out in the “research funding from industry” indicator. Here, they scored 100 out of a possible 100 points. The THE rankings are among the world’s most influential university rankings and are published annually.

To be included, scholars must have published a minimum number of scientific papers. Just under 1,200 of all universities worldwide achieved this in the engineering sciences, and around 1,000 institutions reached the target in computer science. These universities were evaluated and ranked based on 13 indicators from areas such as teaching, research, citations, international orientation, and industry funding.
