Southampton's Electrical and Electronic Engineering in global top 100 and UK's top ten in QS world subject rankings

Published: 20 April 2022

EEE is placed 65th in the world and seventh in the UK in the QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) rankings that are internationally recognised indicators of excellence to rate and rank the world's leading universities.

It joins Mechanical, Aeronautical and Manufacture Engineering that rises 12 places to 63rd in the world (sixth in the UK), and Engineering and Technology that is 85th in the world (seventh in the UK). Civil and Structural Engineering remains in the world's 51-100 place band.

As well as providing global rankings at institutional level, QS ranks universities in individual subject areas using data compiled from global surveys of academics and employers

Southampton's performance in all the areas listed is powered by the University's continued improvement in reputational rating among academic peers and employers around the world and good scores for research citations and 'h-index', which measures the productivity and impact of work published by scientists and scholars in each subject.

Associate Dean of Research, Engineering and Physical Sciences, Professor Robert Wood, said: "It is fantastic to see Electrical and Electronic Engineering being recognised so highly in these global rankings. It is a measure of success that reflects not only the hard work and dedication of our staff, but also our excellent facilities, the high quality of our students and the relevance and reach of our research in this discipline."

The University has 12 subjects ranked in the global top 100 - six are in the global top 50, twice as many as last year. This is a marque of consistent quality, indicative of its place among the best universities in the world.

Elsewhere in Engineering and Physical Sciences, Physics and Astronomy rises 11 places to 55th (seventh in the UK).

This continued success in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022, demonstrates and strengthens the University of Southampton's position as one of the world's leading universities.
