AGH University once again in the Shanghai Ranking

In this year’s edition of the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as the Shanghai Ranking, the AGH University once again took the first place among Polish technical universities.

Besides the AGH University, nine Polish Universities were listed in the ranking:

  • Jagiellonian University (rank 401–500),
  • University of Warsaw (rank 401–500),
  • Wroclaw Medical University (rank 801–900),
  • Adam Mickiewicz University (rank 901–1000),
  • Gdansk University of Technology (rank 901–1000),
  • Medical University of Warsaw (rank 901–1000),
  • Nicolaus Copernicus University (rank 901–1000),
  • Warsaw University of Technology (rank 901–1000).

The best positions in the ranking belong to universities from the USA – Harvard University, Stanford University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In the top ten, there were eight American universities and two from the United Kingdom.

The Academic Ranking of World Universities was first published in 2003 by Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Since 2009, ARWU has been prepared and published by an independent organisation, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy. The exact place in the ranking is known only for the 100 best universities in the world. The remaining universities are classified in ranks comprising 50 or 100 institutions. The list is created based on a few factors:

  • the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals,
  • the number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science,
  • the number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded™ and Social Sciences Citation Index™ in the Web of Science™,
  • and per capita performance of a university.
