Water Resources at UNSW ranked 5th globally
UNSW has swept ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2018, scoring the most subjects ranked first in Australia and the highest number of subjects ranked in the top 100 in the country. These rankings focus on research outcomes and accomplishments at a sub-discipline level. Water Resources at UNSW was ranked 5th globally in these rankings. This is the highest such ranking of Water Resources within Australia, and the highest ranking for any discipline within UNSW.
UNSW Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Nicholas Fisk felt it was a clean sweep for UNSW Sydney.
“To be top in Australia for subjects ranked first, with the most subjects in the top 100, underscores the depth and breadth of UNSW research.
“These subject rankings are a more tangible reflection of a university’s research strengths than the global ranking, and UNSW is a comprehensive university that demonstrates academic and research excellence. I want to pay special tribute to all UNSW's hard working academics on this outstanding result.”
