In the CWUR ranking, four criteria are taken into account

In the latest edition of The Center for World University Ranking, Warsaw University of Technology ranked 711th  in the world and maintained its fifth place in the country, behind three universities and one research institute.

The CWUR ranking was based on the analysis of data from 20,531 universities and research centers from around the world. On its basis, a list of the 2,000 best of them was created. It includes 40 institutions from Poland. Our country's best universities include Jagiellonian University (381st place), the University of Warsaw (402nd place), and the AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow (590th place).

In addition, the Warsaw University of Technology was classified on 347th position in the criterion of the quality of education. This is the best result among the Polish universities.

The ranking was largely dominated by American universities. In the top 20, there are as many as 16 of them. Three leading positions were taken by Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University.

CWUR is created on the basis of four main criteria. These are: the quality of education (measured by the number of graduates who have obtained prestigious academic distinctions), alumni employment (measured by the number of graduates in executive positions in global companies), the quality of faculty (measured by the number of academic staff with prestigious distinctions), the research performance (measured by the total number of research papers, the number of research papers published in the best journals, the influence of these publications, and the number of citations).
