Times Higher Education's 'World University Rankings' is one of the most recognized university rankings, which each year comes out with a new list of the best universities judged on several parameters.
On this years list, DTU has gone from placing number 166 to being ranked as the 126th-best university in the world. At the same time, DTU has moved one position up in the Nordic region to seventh place and advanced 23 places in Europe, where DTU is now number 51.
This year, the British ranking comprises 1,904 universities from 108 countries and regions, and their rankings are judged based on five main topics: teaching, research environment, research quality, industry, and international outlook.
The parameter teaching has especially influenced the significant progress where DTU has advanced 97 places.
"The fact that DTU is experiencing progress in terms of education, research quality and business collaboration is well in line with our strategic focus on being Europe's best engineering education, delivering excellent research and being the business community's preferred partner," says Provost Rasmus Larsen.
It is not only DTU that has been placed well on the new list. The three best placed technical universities in Europe are ETH Zurich in Switzerland, the Technical University of Munich in Germany and University École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland. The latter two are from the EuroTech Universities Alliance, of which DTU is also a part.
