ECU has been ranked in the world’s top 175 universities for Engineering and Technology by the globally-recognised Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for 2020.
ECU’s School of Engineering has not only been one of Australia’s fastest-growing schools; its reputation is also growing internationally.
This latest THE ranking moves ECU up from last year’s global top 250 into the top 175, reflecting ongoing improvement in areas such as teaching, research, international outlook and industry engagement.
ECU’s Executive Dean of Engineering, Professor Daryoush Habibi welcomed the result, saying this level of recognition was in part due to a comprehensive plan for the expansion of the School’s education and research programs, commenced in 2009.
That program has included a phased introduction of undergraduate and postgraduate programs in engineering, along with the construction of three new buildings over the past six years. The establishment of high-quality infrastructure has also been significant, and has grown annually to support the delivery of these new programs.
“Through the expansion of our engineering capabilities we have been able to establish many collaborative projects with industry, including the Water Corporation, Byrnecut Australia, Schneider Electric, Redimed, Teck Global, Magellan Power, Nortel, the Department of Defence Science & Technology, and more.” said Professor Habibi.
“These organisations recognise the quality of work and level of experience and expertise that we have at ECU and we mutually benefit from these collaborative projects.”
