QS rankings by subject

The UPV, internationally recognised as the best university in Spain for studying Agricultural, Forest and Environmental Engineering and Art and Design

[ 18/04/2024 ]

The Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), which offers both a Bachelor's degree in Agricultural and Biological Engineering Agricultural and a Bachelor's degree in Forest and Environmental Engineering at its School of Agricultural Engineering and Environment (ETSIAMN-UPV), is the best university in Spain for studying Agriculture and Forestry Engineering.

This is certified by the new update of the QS World University Rankings by Subject, made public a few minutes ago, which recognises the UPV as the 56th best university in the world to study such training and in the global top 100 in the field of Art and Design.

8 national podiums

At the national level, QS by Subject awards 8 podiums to the institution directed by José E. Capilla, which is the best in Spain in the aforementioned Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Forest and Environmental Engineering and Art and Design, as well as the second best in Chemical Engineering and the third best in Architecture, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace and Manufacturing, and Statistics and Operations Research.

It is also the fourth-best option for materials science and the fifth-best for Computer Science and Chemistry.

Outstanding in 17 disciplines at the international level and in the top 200 worldwide in 9 of them

In its overall assessment, QS highlights the UPV in a total of 17 disciplines, one more than in the previous edition, and places it in the top 200 worldwide in up to 9 of them. Specifically, in addition to those already mentioned - Agricultural and Biological Engineering and Forest and Environmental Engineering (56) and Art and Design (51-100) - it is ranked in Architecture (101-150), Chemical Engineering (101-150), Civil Engineering (101-150), Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace and Manufacturing (148), Electrical and Electronic Engineering (151-200), Materials Science (151-200) and Statistics and Operations Research (151-200).

In addition, this prestigious indicator also recognises the UPV at the world level in subjects such as Computer Science (201-250), Mathematics (251-300), Environmental Sciences (301-350), Physics and Astronomy (301-350), Biological Sciences (451-500), Business Administration and Management (451-500) and Economic Sciences and Econometrics (451-500).

Improvement in 4 of the 5 main fields analysed

The good results obtained are part of a general improvement confirmed by QS, with the UPV gaining in 4 of the 5 main fields analysed and subdivided into disciplines.

Thus, with the exception of Social Sciences and Business Administration, where the Universitat Politècnica de València remains in the same position as last year, the institution led by José E. Capilla has improved in Engineering and Technology (from 153rd in the world to 144th), Natural Sciences (from 372nd to 354th), Life Sciences and Medicine (from 501-520th to 451-500th) and Arts and Humanities (from 451-500th to 401-450th).

"In a world scenario as competitive as the current one, this is another reason to congratulate the entire UPV community for their daily work"

As soon as he heard the results, José E. Capilla wanted to send a message of congratulations to all the people responsible for this recognition.

"The truth is that it is a source of satisfaction because in an extremely competitive world scenario like the current one, where countries are betting heavily on their university systems, the fact that we not only remain there but that new degrees are entering the world top and others are rising, is another reason to congratulate the entire UPV university community for everything they do in their daily work," said the Rector of the Universitat Politècnica de València.

4,982 universities analysed by Quacquarelli Symonds

Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), the world's leading provider of services, analyses and studies in higher education, has conducted a comparative analysis of 4,982 university programmes to produce this ranking.

By assessing four indicators - academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per article and h-index - QS evaluates the work of universities by grouping it into five major subject areas - Arts and Humanities, Engineering and Technology, Life Sciences and Medicine, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences and Business Management - which it then subdivides into rankings for 55 academic disciplines.
