The University of Edinburgh
The latest international university rankings have confirmed Edinburgh's position as a leading global institution.
The QS World Rankings 2013/14, announced on 10 September, have placed the University 17th in the world, a rise of four places compared to the previous year and Edinburgh’s highest-ever ranking.
The news comes as Edinburgh announced record levels of investment to help fund its pioneering work.
Figures just released show that the University was awarded £300 million in competitive research grants in 2012/13, 20% more than the £250 million it secured in 2011/12.
The School of Engineering
Not only was the School ranked third (Research Fortnight Power Analysis) in General Engineering in the UK Research Assessment Exercise (2008), but it also has a strong track record in producing more than 50 technology spin-outs and developing industry links that enable our graduates to build relationships that last a whole career.
In 2011/2012 the School was successful in achieving £28m research awards/income.
The University of Edinburgh welcomed the outstanding results of REF2014 for the Edinburgh Research Partnership in Engineering (ERPE). 94% of our overall research activity is world-leading or internationally excellent. This, combined with the number of academic staff involved, makes Edinburgh the UK powerhouse in Engineering.
