Every year, the National Taiwan University (NTU) compiles a ranking of the top 800 universities in the world in six different disciplines and a total of 24 individual subjects. For this internationally respected ranking, NTU evaluated various bibliometric indicators, such as international scientific publications, and ranked them according to scientific productivity, excellence, and influence in research.

RWTH Aachen University performed very well in the German ranking, since the institution is currently listed among the best universities in Germany for 18 of 24 subjects. RWTH scored first place in Germany for the subjects civil engineering, chemical engineering, and mechanical engineering. Finally, the University was ranked second in Germany for electrical engineering and third for chemistry, computer science, and mathematics. (Source: RWTH Press, Image rights: Martin Braun)

CHE Ranking 2020

The Centre for Higher Education Development (CHE) examined the study programmes industrial engineering and business administration and rated the training as very good.

The CHE ranking showed again this year that the students at the RWTH Aachen are very well educated. The subjects Business Administration and Industrial Engineering and Management were examined in the four disciplines Civil Engineering, Electrical Power Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Materials and Process Engineering. The results base on how students evaluate their course programme. Afterwards, all results are put in relation with the results of other universities.

The ranking is based on surveys of students regarding the equipment of the university and the teaching staff. The students of the RWTH Aachen University were particularly satisfied with the organization of their courses of study as well as the equipment of the university. The study situation also seemed to be good for the students; the Industrial Engineering and Management with a specialisation in Electrical Power Engineering achieved a 2.1. In addition, the students appreciated the good support they received at the start of their studies in the form of advice, tutorials and courses to build up competence.

The high number of students in the Industrial Engineering and Management department who complete their studies in a maximum of one semester more than the standard period of study is particularly noteworthy.

Second place for electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen University among German faculties in worldwide ranking

In the current QS World University Ranking 2020, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at RWTH Aachen University is among the top 40 universities evaluated in the worldwide ranking with rank 34. While in the years 2015-2017 the faculty was still ranked between 51 and 100, since 2018 the faculty is among the top 50 in an international comparison. In comparison to other german universities, the faculty is in second place.

Decisive for the rankings are opinions of scientists, employers, as well as data on citations and the H-Index. The almost unchanged results once again confirm the high reputation of our faculty.
