Charles Sturt University has achieved outstanding results in ShanghaiRanking Consultancy’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2020.
More than 1,800 universities from 90 countries and regions were assessed based on research quality, extent of international collaboration, top-quality research, and the highest academic recognition.
Universities need to have a minimum number of research publications from 2014 to 2018 to be included in the subject rankings, with those failing to achieve that requirement omitted from inclusion.
Charles Sturt featured in the top 500 in seven subjects, including ecology, computer science and engineering, food science and technology, agricultural sciences, veterinary sciences, nursing, and education.
The University ranked in the top 101-150 globally in veterinary sciences, 151-200 in food science and technology, 201-300 in nursing, 301-400 in education, ecology and agricultural sciences, and 401-500 in computer science and engineering.
Charles Sturt’s food science and technology subjects ranked fourth-eighth nationally, while its veterinary sciences subjects were ranked seventh-eighth among Australian universities.
Charles Sturt University’s Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor John Germov said it was encouraging to see the University among esteemed names in the tertiary education sector.
“Charles Sturt University is dedicated to delivering subjects relevant to today’s ever-changing job market and I am proud that the University continues to perform well in international rankings,” he said.
“The University’s inclusion in these rankings is an indication we are providing quality education and knowledge to graduates at a world-class level.”
These results come after Charles Sturt was ranked 61st in the Times Higher Education Impact Ratings and the University topped the Good Education Guide’s latest ranking of Australian universities for full-time employment after graduation.
