Engineering research continues its high international ranking


21 February 2008

We are one of only 12 Faculties in the whole country to get in the top 100 and it testifies to the very high quality research being performed here. I am extremely proud of the quality of our researchers in this faculty.

The Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies was again ranked in the range 51-75 in the Shanghai Jiaotong Index.

The Shanghai Jiaotong Index ranks universities by several indicators of academic or research performance, including alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, highly cited researchers, articles published in Nature and Science, articles indexed in major citation indices, and the per capita academic performance of an institution.

Only two Australian Engineering Faculties are ranking in the top 75.

The Dean of the Faculty, the BlueScope Steel Professor of Steel Structures, Greg Hancock said "We are one of only 12 Faculties in the whole country to get in the top 100 and it testifies to the very high quality research being performed here. I am extremely proud of the quality of our researchers in this faculty."
