Gdańsk University of Technology for the fourth time in the Shanghai ranking

The Academic Ranking of World Universities
For the fourth time, Gdańsk University of Technology was classified in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), i.e. the so-called Shanghai ranking, which is considered the most prestigious ranking of universities in the world. Only nine Polish universities were included in the ranking.

The ranking of the best universities in the world, called the Shanghai List, has been prepared by the Jiao Tong University in Shanghai since 2003. The exact place in the ranking is known only for the top 100 universities in the world. The remaining places are listed only approximately - universities appear in groups of 100 institutions.

The ranking classifies universities from around the world according to several indicators:

  • the number of alumni or employees who have received the Nobel Prize or the Fields Medal
  • the number of scientists on the list of Highly Cited Researchers published by Calrivate.
  • the number of articles in "Nature" and "Science" scientific journals
  • the number of articles indexed in the Science Citation Index-Expanded and Social Science Citation Index
  • the number of the achievements of a given university in relation to the number of academic staff

Among Polish universities, 9 institutions were classified in ARWU 2023, which is two less than last year. In the range 901-1000, apart from Gdańsk University of Technology, there are Adam Mickiewicz University, Medical University of Warsaw, Nicolaus Copernicus University and Warsaw University of Technology. The Medical University of Wrocław and the AGH University of Science and Technology are among the 9th hundred universities in the world. The highest position was occupied by the Jagiellonian University and the University of Warsaw (range 401-500).

– The presence of our university in the prestigious Shanghai ranking is a reason to be proud and at the same time a motivation for further, hard work. We have been included in this list for the fourth time - says prof. Krzysztof Wilde, rector of Gdańsk University of Technology. – We are consistently developing our university: we invest in infrastructure, support research and development of scientists, and we care for a high level of didactic offer. The rightness of our actions is confirmed by the place in the Shanghai ranking, among other things.

Traditionally, universities from the USA - Harvard University, Stanford University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - were on the podium of the ranking.
