ECU has been named in a global list of the best universities under the age of 50.
The 2016 Times Higher Education (THE) 150 Under 50 rankings assess universities on performance indicators such as research, teaching excellence, international outlook and innovation.
ECU Vice-Chancellor Professor Steve Chapman welcomed ECU’s inclusion in the rankings.
“As ECU celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, I am delighted we have secured a place in the rankings alongside other agile, young universities less than 50 years old,” Professor Chapman said.
“I’m proud of what ECU students and staff have achieved so far and I’m excited about our rapid development in the next 25 years.”
According to THE, the 150 Under 50 reveals those nations and regions challenging the traditional dominance of universities located in the US and UK. ECU is one of just 19 Australian universities named in this year’s list.
