UCSB Ranked No. 35 in World University Rankings

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - 17:00
Santa Barbara, CA

UC Santa Barbara has been ranked number 35 on a list of the world's top 200 universities released today by Times Higher Education, a British periodical. Among U.S. universities, UCSB is ranked number 23. In addition, of the top 50 universities offering degrees in engineering and technology, UCSB is ranked number 17.

"Overall, the U.S. continues to dominate the rankings, with seven of the top 10 places and a total of 76 institutions in the top 200 –– one more than last year and 45 more than any other nation," said Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2012-13.

The 2012-13 World University Rankings uses a methodology developed with data supplied by Thomson Reuters. The rankings place less importance on reputation and heritage, and give more weight to hard measures of excellence in all three core elements of a university's mission –– research, teaching, and knowledge transfer.

The rankings include 13 separate performance indicators across five categories: teaching, research, citation impact, industry income, and international mix. UCSB's overall score in the rankings was 75.6. The campus was strongest in the areas of citation impact (99.4), research (73.5), and industry income (100.0).

The campus's overall score in the Engineering & Technology ranking was 79.5, with scores of 75.1 in research; 97.5 in citation impact; and 100.0 in industry income.
