TUM Ranked Best German University for the Seventh Time in a Row

New Issue of QS World University Rankings

In the prestigious “QS World University Rankings”, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) was ranked as Germany’s best university for the seventh time in a row. TUM was able to achieve 50th place out of 1,300 universities from all around the world.

Quacquarelli Symonds, a British specialist in the analysis of higher education institutions, compiles its university quality rankings through surveys of academics and employers. It also assesses the number of citations of published research, the faculty-student ratio and the percentages of international students and staff.

TUM repeated its number 50 ranking and is thus yet again the leading German university. Within the EU it is the third-best university, just behind the two French institutions Université PSL (44th) and Institut Polytechnique de Paris, a university system made up of five schools, including TUM partner École Polytechnique (49th).

TUM also regularly achieves excellent results in other international rankings, including 12th place worldwide in the Global University Employability Ranking, in which companies rate the quality of graduates. In the most recent THE World University Rankings by Subject, it placed 14th in computer science, 24th in ngineering, 25th in physical sciences (comprising most natural sciences subjects) and 46th in life sciences.
