Engineering subject areas taught at the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering (CEME) at the University of WA have been rated among the Top 10 in the world.
In the recent global Shanghai Rankings of academic subjects, CEME was rated seventh in the world for mining and mineral engineering, and ninth in the world for marine/ocean engineering.
The Shanghai Rankings are part of the Academic Ranking of World Universities published by China’s Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
The School has exceptional research strength in geotechnical and ocean/marine engineering with a large number of academics also contributing to the success of the UWA Oceans Institute and the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems (COFS), which are now both located in the new Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre at UWA.
The latest results confirm subject rankings released in April this year by the Center for World University Rankings which judged CEME’s geotechnical/geological engineering as number one in the world, and its marine/ocean engineering as tenth in the world.
The Center for World University Rankings feature the top global universities in 227 subjects covering all academic disciplines in the sciences and social sciences.
