UWaterloo subjects rank among world’s top universities

Thirteen University of Waterloo subjects are among the top in the world, the UK’s Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) rankings confirmed last week.

According to QS, 13 subjects offered at Waterloo rank among the top 100 when compared to other universities in the world, up from 11 subjects last year. The subjects include civil engineering, chemical engineering and electrical engineering as well as the natural science subjects of geography, environmental sciences and materials sciences. Also making the top 100 were architecture, psychology, sports related subjects, and statistics and operational research.

Three of Waterloo’s subjects were also among the top 50 in the world, including Hospitality and Leisure Management Studies, Computer Science, and Mathematics.

“As Canada’s most innovative university, it is validating to see that Waterloo’s efforts are being noticed,” says Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice-chancellor of the University of Waterloo. “The results show that Waterloo’s focus on innovation and excellence in teaching and research across all subjects places it among some of the most reputable institutions in the world.”

QS released the 4th edition of the World University Rankings by Subject this week. In the rankings, QS evaluated 1,117 universities in 46 subjects, including four new subjects: theology, divinity and religious studies; anatomy and physiology; hospitality and leisure management; and sports-related subjects.

Waterloo is listed amongst the top 200 universities globally for 20 of the 46 specific disciplines measured.
