SZE has also been included in THE's World University Rankings 2024 by Subject: engineering

For the first time in its history, Széchenyi István University has been included in the Times Higher Education's World Rankings by Subject. The latest success in the engineering category confirms that the institution is among the international leaders.

Each autumn, Times Higher Education (THE), one of the leading international higher education ranking organisations, publishes its annual world ranking of the world's best universities in their field. The rankings for 2024, published on 26 October, analyse universities in 11 disciplines according to five indicators - teaching, research, academic publications, internationalisation and industry income. In the engineering category, more than 1,400 universities were ranked, including, for the first time, Széchenyi István University, which means that the institution is among the world leaders in this field. The quality of the ranking is reflected in the fact that the top ten universities include Harvard, Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US, followed by the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge in the UK.

The development and excellent performance of the Győr-based institution is demonstrated by its debut in THE's world rankings at the end of September. It was also ranked for the third time in the June world ranking of Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), another major global rating organisation and was also included - as the sixth best Hungarian university, in 382nd place - in the European QS ranking, published for the first time in mid-September. 


"Our university aims to be among the best in the world in order to provide students with an even higher quality of education and to contribute even more to the competitiveness of the region. The new world ranking is a great success and confirms that our institution is among the leaders in the field of engineering sciences, which greatly contributes to the development of the economy, not only in Hungary but also at the international level", emphasised Dr. Bálint Filep, President of Széchenyi István University. 

"On the one hand, the fact that our university has been included in THE's list of disciplines is extremely important from an academic point of view. This ranking adopts the indicators of the world ranking, while at the same time weighting the differences in research culture between disciplines. It applies world-class publication minimums, which means that our research in engineering is internationally benchmarked. On the other hand, foreign direct investment in our country take into account the quality of the workforce, when hiring new recruits, and this is further guaranteed by our position in the ranking of disciplines," said Dr. Eszter Lukács, Vice President for International Affairs and Strategic Relations at Széchenyi István University. She thanked all colleagues for their support, including the staff of the University Library and Archives who greatly contributed to the data collection and data provision for the rankings.
