CWUR ranks UT Austin No. 29 in latest world ranking

In 2014, the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) recognized The University of Texas at Austin as No. 29 among the world’s top 1000 universities.

The CWUR publishes an annual global university ranking that “measures the quality of education and training of students as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research without relying on surveys and university data submissions.”

In this ranking, CWUR uses eight indicators to rank the world’s top 1000 universities. They include the quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citations, broad impact and patents. Among these criteria, the university ranked highest for national ranking (22) and quality of faculty (24).

The only other Texas university included in the top 100 is the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas (66).
