The University of Western Australia has remained the top of the State in Engineering and Technology, and Computer Science in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings by subject, released today.

Nationally, UWA also performed highly, ranking 10th in Engineering and Technology and 12th in Computer Science.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings by subject compares the top 903 universities in Engineering and Technology and the top 684 universities in Computer Science worldwide.

The University retained its ranking in Engineering and Technology in the 126-150 range as well as remaining steady in Computer Science at 176-200.

Western Australia is recognised as a global hub for minerals and energy and the study of engineering at UWA now encompasses many disciplines and includes emerging fields such as biomedical engineering and data science.

The subject rankings follow the recent release of the overall 2019 Times Higher Education World University Rankings, in which UWA was the highest-ranked university in Western Australia and 7th in the nation.

UWA Vice-Chancellor Professor Dawn Freshwater said the University was proud to be recognised as the top institution in Western Australia in these fields.

“I am looking forward to further enhancements in these areas in the future, as we look towards the launch of EZONE in 2020, an $80 million landmark facility for our campus that will provide a world-class learning space for engineering and mathematical science students at UWA,” Professor Freshwater said.

“Once complete, EZONE will provide our students with the opportunity to learn and develop in an innovative and inspiring environment in collaboration with researchers, industry and the community.”
