World University Rankings Put UT at 29th


We’re No. 29!

OK, so 29th may not initially sound like the most impressive number for a school that likes to pride itself on being No. 1, but being named the 29th-best university on the planet really isn’t too shabby. That’s the accolade UT snagged last week when the latest numbers from the Center for World University Rankings were released.

The rankings evaluate schools across eight criteria, from quality of education (which determines the bulk of the ranking) and alumni employment to patents and publications. Only 21 other American universities came out ahead of UT, and the only other Texas school to crack the top 100 was the UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.

Last year, UT came in at 27th in the same ranking, and we were 25th in 2012.
