"Our Faculty plays a key role in the 'design-oriented research’ and we are proud that this is recognised and awarded with a top 3 position in the world ranking according to QS World University Rankings by subject” says Peter Russell, Dean of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. "And even though you shouldn't overestimate the value of rankings in general, we are happy to have achieved such a high place in this ranking.”

QS is doing a thorough survey each year; they compare 800 universities worldwide on academic reputation, research impact and employer reputation. A high ranking like this is also important to attract talented international researchers and students.
