McMaster remains a top 100 university in Times Higher Ed rankings

October 1, 2014

McMaster continues to be one of the world's top 100 universities according to the latest Times Higher Education rankings released Wednesday. The rankings place McMaster 94th in the world making it one of only four Canadian schools in the top 100. Last year McMaster placed 92nd.

“The Times rankings confirm that McMaster continues to be one of the best universities in the world,” says President Patrick Deane. “When this ranking is considered with the others released over the past few weeks, it is clear McMaster is providing high quality teaching and learning, conducting ground breaking research and attracting and retaining the best faculty and staff.”

The World University Rankings compare world-class universities across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. McMaster's scores in teaching and research increased over last year, as did the University's overall score. McMaster is one of just two Canadian institutions with a significant score in the industry income category, a measure of how much research funding is secured from industry partners.

Last month, McMaster was ranked 113th in the world by the QS Higher Education rankings, moving up from 140th spot. In August, the Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities moved McMaster up to No. 90 from 92 – making McMaster one of only four Canadian universities in the top 100 of that prestigious ranking.
