Since 2004, the so called 'THE World University Rankings' has been among the most recognized ranking lists for universities around the world. Aalborg University (AAU) is now entering the top 200 of the world's best universities for the first time.
All employees should be proud of having contributed to reaching the goal that the university’s strategic commitment "Knowledge for the World" is making a difference. A difference that can now be clearly seen in the ranking of Aalborg University, says President and Vice Chancellor at AAU, Per Michael Johansen.
The ranking is based, among other things, on assessments of teaching, research, international views, reputation and citations in scientific journals.
AAU has previously placed highly in studies on education quality, in rankings for younger universities and in the engineering field. But it is only this year that AAU has ranked in the top 200 out of all universities in the world across all parameters and continents.
- Aalborg University is progressing so rapidly because our research is being used all around the world. This can be seen in the number of citations. I am very pleased that the university is strong both in research and education, says Per Michael Johansen.
