International ranking finds Western Sydney University research in world’s top 400
Western Sydney University's increasing international influence has been recognised in the 2016 Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities.
The international ranking places Western Sydney University in the top 400 in the world, illustrating the University's growing reputation for producing research of international importance.
The ranking system measured factors of academic and research performance, including significant academic achievements awarded to researchers, highly cited researchers, the quality and quantity of research publications, and the per capita academic performance of an institution.
The University's STEM research was also recognised, ranking in the top 400 for Environmental Science & Engineering and Electrical & Electronic Engineering.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Barney Glover says the strong result confirms the growing international influence of the University's research.
"Western Sydney University continues to balance research quality with the importance of ensuring relevance and impact at the local, national and international levels," says Professor Glover.
"These excellent results reflect the international respect accorded to our researchers by their international colleagues. Just as importantly, these results show that our concern with real-world problems, development of industry partnerships and focus on impact, supports research at the highest international standard."
"On behalf of the University, I congratulate our researchers for the result, and credit their ongoing commitment to producing research with lasting national and international impact."
