Swinburne University of Technology has risen into the top 250 in the 2024 Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
This continues Swinburne’s steady climb up the Times Higher Education rankings of up to 100 places from the university’s 2023’s ranking.
Swinburne’s dominance in research was also recognised, placing 102 in the world for Research Quality.
Swinburne’s President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Pascale Quester says Swinburne’s rise in the rankings are a reflection of the university’s dedication to research excellence and influence.
“Our ambitious moonshots made it clear that Swinburne would step up on the global stage, and we have done exactly that.”
“Our staff and students are driving real impact by bringing people and technology together to build a better world,” Professor Quester said.
“Swinburne graduates leave with more than a piece of paper. They leave having gained real industry experience, learning from the best and brightest, who set them up to do impactful, interesting, and important work across the world.”
“We will continue creating the prototype of a new and different university, fit for the 21st century, that better serves the needs of students, industry and the nation,” Professor Quester said.
Swinburne’s latest rankings success follows ranking 43rd in the 2023 Times Higher Education Young University Rankings earlier in the year.
The Times Higher Education rankings look at 1,904 universities worldwide across teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook.
The Research Quality category includes new metrics to consider not just the number of times a university’s published work is cited by scholars globally, but also the number of publications in the top 10 per cent for field-weighted citation impact worldwide.
