Eindhoven University of Technology: TU/e collaboration with industry still world’s best according to international ranking

TU/e scores 99.9 out of 100 points on the indicator Industry income (knowledge transfer), giving our university a shared fifteenth position in the world rankings, and a shared fifth position in the European rankings. In the Netherlands, only Wageningen University & Research scores higher.

The Industry income indicator measures how much income a university generates from transferring knowledge to industry, measured by the size of its academic staff. The score “suggests the extent to which businesses are willing to pay for research and a university’s ability to attract funding in the commercial marketplace – useful indicators of institutional quality”, according to THE’s website.

Collaboration with industry has traditionally been one of TU/e’s strengths, and an important reason why students and researchers want to study and work here. The TU/e campus is the center of one of the largest technology hubs in the world, Brainport Eindhoven. Here, knowledge institutions and hundreds of companies work together to solve societal challenges in the areas of artificial intelligence, sustainability, health and mobility.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings is one of the most important international rankings for assessing university performance. For the latest list, more than 1,600 different universities in 99 countries and territories were evaluated on a variety of factors. In addition to innovative strength, these include teaching, research and international positioning.

For the sixth year in a row, the University of Oxford ranks first, followed by Caltech and Harvard in the US. For the first time, two universities from China are in the top 20. In the overall ranking, TU/e is ranked 201 – 250.
