Seven TU9 Universities among Top 150
In the current QS World University Ranking, TU9 Universities once again perform particularly well in the engineering and natural science subjects. TU9 Universities are thus among the world’s best universities.
In the subject area of „Engineering and Technology“, the Technical University of Munich (25th place), the Technische Universität Berlin (45th place), RWTH Aachen University (51st place) and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (68th place) are among the top one hundred universities worldwide. With the Technische Universität Dresden, the Technical University of Darmstadt and the University of Stuttgart, a total of seven TU9 Universities are among the top 150.
In the subject area of „Natural Sciences“ seven TU9 Universities are also among the top 150 universities in the world.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfram Ressel, TU9 President and Rector of the University of Stuttgart, is pleased about the top performance of the TU9 Universities: „The QS Ranking shows once again that the TU9 Universities are global competitors and have an excellent international reputation.
The QS World University Rankings assesses universities using six performance indicators, which each carry a different weighting when calculating overall scores. These indicators are: academic reputation (40%), employer reputation (10%), student-to-faculty ratio (20%), research citations per faculty member (20%), proportion of international faculty (5%) and proportion of international students (5%).
TU9 is the Alliance of leading Universities of Technology in Germany: RWTH Aachen University, Technische Universi- tät Berlin, Technische Universität Braunschweig, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Technische Universität Dresden, Leibniz University Hannover, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Technical University of Munich, and University of Stuttgart.
Tradition, excellence, and innovation are the hallmarks of TU9 Universities. Founded during the Industrial Age, they contributed decisively to technological progress back then and continue to do so today. They enjoy an outstanding reputation around the world as renowned research and teaching institutions that promote the transfer of knowledge and technology between universities and practice. As such, they train exceptional young academics for careers in science, business, and administration and assume social responsibility. TU9 Universities foster top-class international networks and diverse cooperation with industry, making them a key element of Germany’s position as a location of science and innovation.
