ITMO University – a Project 5-100 participant – has improved its position among the world's top 100 universities in Computer Science.
Times Higher Education (THE) has released the THE World University Rankings by subjects: Computer Science and Engineering Technology.
Russia has 16 universities listed in the Computer Science rankings table, 11 of them are Project 5-100 participants.
ITMO University has risen five places to joint 71st, which puts it on the podium in the regional table and strengthens its position in the top 100. The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT (101-125 band) – another Project 5-100 university - has been ranked among the world's 125 best universities in this subject. The National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (201-250 band) held its position among the top 250 universities in the world a second year in a row.
Eight of the Project 5-100 universities have entered the rankings for the first time: NSU, HSE, Samara University, ETU “LETI”, SPbPU, TSU, TPU, and UrFU.
Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) has been ranked 78th in the rankings, featuring in the 100 best universities in Computer Science.
In the THE World University Rankings by subject: Engineering and Technology Russia is represented by 28 universities, 15 of them are Project 5-100 participants.
The Project's leader in the ranking is TPU (201-250 band). It is followed by MIPT, TSU and ITMO University, which have landed in 301-400 band. The Project's third-best performers are MEPhI, Samara University and SPbPU (401-500 band).
HSE, ETU “LETI”, FEFU, Lobachevsky University, SIBFU and UrFU have been listed in the THE subject rankings for engineering and technology for the first time.
MSU ranked in the 151-157 band is Russia's leader in this subject ranking.
Overall, 11 subject rankings have been published by Times Higher Education: Social Sciences, Business and Economics, Education, and Law, Arts and Humanities, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Psychology, Clinical, Pre-Clinical and Health, Engineering and Technology, Computer Science. Eight of the lists include more than 500 universities for the first time.
Project 5-100 universities have shown positive momentum in the subject rankings published earlier this year by THE. KFU is Russia's leader in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings’ table for education. This university has joined the ranking in the 101-125 band. It makes KFU the highest-ranked Russian newcomer in the table. HSE has become the first Russian university to feature in the top 150 best universities for the social sciences. HSE also shares the 101-125 band with MSU in the Business and Economics rankings table this year. Two Project 5-100 institutions are in the global top 100 for physical sciences. MIPT has retained a top 50 position in this subject, MEPhI has risen to 78th, and MSU has reach joint 96th place.
The subject tables employ the same range of 13 performance indicators used in the overall World University Rankings, brought together with scores provided under five categories. However, the overall methodology is carefully recalibrated for each subject, with the weightings changed to suit the individual fields.
