Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) released its 2019 World University Rankings and once again Waterloo finds itself amongst the best universities in Canada and around the world. Building on momentum, electrical engineering at Waterloo ranked 49th globally, up two spots from last year.
“This is one of the most extensive evaluative exercises we conduct, offering universities and their stakeholders alike authoritative insight into the quality of an institution’s capacity to foster outstanding academic standards, research impact, and graduate employability,” said Jack Moran, official QS spokesperson. “The University of Waterloo’s strong record of innovation is well-evidenced here.”
QS, the world’s largest international higher education network, ranks the world’s top universities on 48 subjects based on factors like academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty, student-to-faculty ratio, proportion of international faculty, and proportion of international students.
