TUT retains its position in THE World University Rankings

The Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings lists the 1,000 best universities in the world. Tampere University of Technology retained its position amongst the global top 600.

Times Higher Education has published its annual international league table that ranks universities worldwide based on 13 performance indicators. The list includes the top 1,000 universities in the world. This year’s top three is Oxford, Cambridge and California Institute of Technology.

TUT is placed in the 501-600 bracket, the same as in 2016. 

“Compared to the last two years, three of the performance indicators are on the rise, namely citations, industry collaboration and teaching,” says Specialist Laura Himanen from TUT's Research Development Services.  

The indicator that has decreased slightly from the previous year is international outlook.

“THE’s ranking does not include doctoral students, which affects TUT's results. Most of our doctoral students come from outside of Finland,” says Himanen.

The University of Helsinki scored highest among Finnish universities and was placed 90th in the world. Aalto University, the University of Tampere,the University of Oulu, the University of Eastern Finland, the University of Turku, the University of Jyväskylä and Lappeenranta University of Technology also appear on the list.

“1,000 universities is only five per cent of all the universities worldwide. We’re in good company,” says Himanen.
