RWTH's Worldwide Reputation Growing


THE Reputation Ranking, published by Times Higher Education, has once again confirmed that RWTH is among the top 100 universities in world with the best reputation.


Placing in the Top 100 of the THE Ranking for the first time in 2014, RWTH Aachen has once again accomplished the feat this year. Only 20 other universities in continental Europe can claim the same. In contrast to the German trend, the Aachen university performed better than the previous year. In 2016 it moved up its ranking placing among 81 to 90.

Participation from 133 Countries

At the beginning of 2016, academics around the world were called upon to evaluate universities' research and teaching in their field in an online questionnaire. Participants were selected using the author database from Elsevier, a publication service provider. More than 10,000 academics from 133 countries participated.

The ranking list continues to be dominated by universities in the USA: almost half of the top 100 universities are in the United States. 8 US universities are in the Top 10 alone.
