Curtin University, a leading global university from Australia, continues to hold second place in the world for Mineral and Mining Engineering and is ranked as a top 100 university in eight subjects in the 2018 QS World University Rankings by Subject.
The latest results show Curtin achieved ranking in 27 subjects, two more subjects than last year, and ranked as a top 100 university in Mineral and Mining Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Structural Engineering, Earth and Marine Sciences, Development Studies, Architecture/Built Environment, Education and Sports-related subjects.
The university, which has campuses in Western Australia, Dubai, Malaysia and Singapore and presence at a number of global locations, also ranked for the first time in Linguistics, Biological Sciences and Development Studies.
Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry said the results reflected Curtin's commitment to providing high-quality research and teaching to an international audience.
"Curtin's continued strong position in the QS World University Rankings by Subject demonstrates the quality of research being undertaken at the university and our standing as an international leader in these fields," Professor Terry said.
"We are committed to having a strong global presence and impact, and these results showcase the university's investment in research and innovation, making Curtin an ideal choice for prospective students and researchers around the world."
Curtin's continued ranking as second in the world for Mineral and Mining Engineering reflects the university's pre-eminent position in this critically important area for Australia.
In 2018, QS provided a ranking of 48 subjects which are categorised in the five broad disciplines of Arts and Humanities, Engineering and Technology, Life Sciences and Medicine, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences and Management.
The ranking evaluates more than 1100 institutions and assesses university performance across four areas - research, teaching, employability and internationalisation - and looks at six performance indicators, including academic reputation and student-to-faulty ratio.
