There’s good news for ECU graduates in the latest university rankings, with ECU receiving the highest rating of ‘very good’ for bachelor and masters graduates finding work locally.
The 2016 Multirank results, released today, also awarded ECU ‘very good’ ratings for its close links with local communities to generate research publications, research income and student internships.
ECU also received the maximum rating for proportion of international academic staff, post-doctoral positions, industry co-patents and art-related research output.
Multirank, now in its third year, assesses more than 1200 universities from 83 countries.
It looks at teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international and regional engagement.
ECU Vice-Chancellor Professor Steve Chapman welcomed the ratings.
“These rankings show that we continue to be very successful in attracting talented international researchers to ECU, forming close links with industry and offering very good outcomes for our graduates,” he said.
“Throughout 2016 we are celebrating ECU’s 25th anniversary under the banner of ‘making a difference’. It’s pleasing to see our commitment to local communities – through jobs and research projects – is also being recognised globally.”
In January this year ECU was named as named in the Times Higher Education (THE) top 200 list of the Most International Universities in the world.
In 2015 ECU was named in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, placing it in the top five per cent of universities worldwide.
Last year ECU also appeared in the influential THE 100 Under 50 for the top universities under 50 years of age.
