Four Aalto research fields among the world’s top 50

Aalto placed at the top of the Shanghai ranking in Marine/Ocean Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, Mining and Mineral Engineering and Management research.

Aalto University had an outstanding performance in the ShanghaiRanking Global Ranking of Academic Subjects. ShanghaiRanking is one of the world’s most prestigious university ranking agencies. Four of Aalto’s important research fields placed in the top 50: Telecommunication Engineering in 31st position, Marine/Ocean Engineering in 39th, Mining and Mineral Engineering in 46th and Management in 49th.

Aalto's ranking was 51–75 in Business Administration as well as in Computer Science and Engineering, and 76–100 in Electrical and Electronic Engineering as well as in Transportation Science and Technology. With a ranking of 101–150, the fields of Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Technology, Nanoscience and Technology and Medical Technology were also very close to the top. 

The world has about 20,000 universities, so this represents an amazing performance by our community.

‘The improved ranking results in our research focus areas makes us very happy, but it also sends a strong message: when we invest our resources in a focused manner, the results also improve very rapidly. The world has about 20,000 universities, so this represents an amazing performance by our community,’ says a delighted Vice President Tuija Pulkkinen, who is in charge of Research and Innovation.

In recent years, academic subject rankings have taken a strong position alongside traditional rankings that favour older multidisciplinary universities. The ShanghaiRanking Academic Subject rankings are based on a subject-specific analysis of the university’s scientific publications and their citations and on international prizes awarded to the university’s personnel. The ranking covers a total of 52 subjects, including 22 in the area of technology and 4 in economics and business. The design and arts subjects that are important to Aalto are not part of the ranking.
