The University of Iceland is ranked among the 200 best universities in the world in engineering and technology according to a new list from Times Higher Education. This is the the third year in a row that the University of Iceland is placed high up on this distinguished list.
The evaluation of Times Higher Education is based on performance in diverse subjects in engineering; including the ones taught and studied at the University of Iceland. The Times Higher Education appraisal comprises 1,008 universities worldwide that teach and conduct research in engineering and technology. The magazine’s evaluation covers numerous operational factors in the universities, including research activity, international impact, teaching, study environment, and international collaboration.
The Times Higher Education recently published a list of the world's top universities in the field of humanities. The University of Iceland was ranked among the top 300 universities and is the only Icelandic university placed on the list.
The Times Higher Education list is one of the most influential and prestigious of its kind. The other one is the so-called ShanghaiRanking and the University of Iceland is the only university in the country to be ranked on both lists. The University of Iceland is, furthermore, ranked among the six top universities in the world in remote sensing according to the renowned Shanghai Ranking, a field of study closely connected to electrical and computer engineering.
More lists from Times Higher Education on other fields of study will be published later this autumn. Further information on the Times Higher Education World University Rankings on the world's top universities in engineering and technology can be found here.
