Good Results for RWTH in International U-Multirank


RWTH Aachen University once again enjoys great results in the international university ranking U-Multirank. The ranking is initiated and financed by the European Commission and follows a multidimensional approach, with scores ranging from "very good" to "weak" for a large number of indicators.


Overall, the University received scores of "very good" and "good" for 18 of the 28 indicators that were evaluated. RWTH particularly stands out in the areas of research and knowledge transfer. Five out of seven indicators were rated "very good" for knowledge transfer, for example in the number of publications in cooperation with industry, patent applications, and spin-offs. The University also achieved above-average results for all indicators in international orientation.

In addition, RWTH was ranked in 13 subjects: biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, computer science, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, electrical engineering, as well as industrial engineering in four disciplines. Eight of these subjects were previously ranked and almost all of them have improved on their position since the last survey. Chemistry reaches the top 2 groups a total of 11 times, while physics and computer science also feature in the 2 upper categories more than 20 times overall. The subject areas and courses of study evaluated for the first time also secured good placings.

The student ratings, which were collected in an online survey, resulted in good placings across all subjects.
