HSE Joins Two THE Subject Rankings - in Computer Science and Engineering & Technology
For the first time ever, HSE University has entered two THE subject rankings: in Computer Science (in the 301–400 group)and Engineering & Technology (in the 601-800 group). Therefore, HSE has confirmed once again that it is much more than just a specialized social sciences and humanities university, but rather a comprehensive multidisciplinary university, which has become successful in new, innovative areas of natural sciences and engineering.
In the QS rankings, HSE is in the 251-300 group for Computer Science, 451-500 in Engineering & Technology, and 101-150 in Mathematics. Furthermore, HSE University ranks in the Top-100 for Mathematics in the Shanghai Ranking, and is also in the Top-500 of the recently published THE ranking in Physical Sciences.
THE compiled the first ranking of the 100 best universities in Computer Science in 2016. Back then, Russia was only represented by two universities - ITMO and MSU. In 2017, it was expanded to 300 universities, with five Russian institutions appearing. Now, in 2018, the ranking has expanded to include 684 universities, with 16 Russian institutions represented. At present, HSE is 7th among Russian universities.
Russian universities first entered the ranking for Engineering & Technology in 2017, with 10 institutions represented. In 2018, the list has been expanded from 500 to 903 universities, with 28 Russian institutions appearing therein. HSE now ranks 14th among Russian universities.
The subject ranking’s methodology is based on the same 13 indicators as the institutional ranking. They are also classified by five categories, but the indicators’ weight may vary, depending on the subject area.
HSE University was able to place high on the Graduate Employability Ranking (201-250), outpacing its main competitors for the first time in five years. This year, the number of candidates to the ranking was increased 15% (758 universities), with new 36 universities joining the list.
