Swinburne University of Technology has climbed the ranks in the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject.
Swinburne is dedicated to producing internationally recognised research with a focus on transforming industries, shaping lives and creating positive change. Swinburne is also a dual-sector education institution driven to shape the next generation and deliver graduates with the skills for a digital, tech-rich future.
Rankings are one of the ways universities can measure their impact. The QS World University Rankings assesses universities based on six criteria: academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty-student ratio, citations per faculty, ratio of international faculty members and ratio of international students.
Swinburne subjects across engineering, technology, science, social sciences and management have jumped between 24 and 348 places in international rankings

In employer reputation, art and design continue to excel – coming in as the university’s best performance. Art and design are ranked in the top 100 and third nationally, reflecting our success in combining design and technology to produce industry-relevant and impactful research.
Swinburne’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Karen Hapgood says, “The strong QS World University Rankings by Subject outcomes, particularly in engineering and technology, and in physics and astronomy, reflect well-known strengths of these key research focus areas at Swinburne. They demonstrate how we have continued to deliver growth in highly impactful, important and tech-rich research and teaching for a better world.
