The 14th annual Times Higher Education rankings marks the first time a total of 1,000 universities from 77 countries have been included, compared to 980 last year. The previous rankings featured 24 Russian institutions.
The ranking system compares universities worldwide using key performance indicators, namely tuition quality, scientific research, citations, international outlook, and industry income (innovation). A comprehensive description of the methodology is available on the Times Higher Education website.
“MIPT is putting much effort into keeping its education programs and research up to date and in line with the Scientific and Technological Development Strategy of the Russian Federation,” says MIPT Rector Nikolay Kudryavtsev in response to the university’s recent advance in the rankings. “This year, we opened new labs doing research in the field of artificial intelligence and genome editing, as well as launching master’s degree programs in quantum technology and technology entrepreneurship. These efforts are backed up by our off-campus specialized departments and alumni. This promotes the university, generating interest within the academic community, as well as on the job market and among prospective students. This year continues the trend toward increased GPA scored by freshman students enrolled at MIPT.”
Vitaliy Bagan, development director at MIPT, says: “Our development program is focused on attracting human capital at all levels, from applicants to professors and leading scientists. We pay particular attention to integration of world-class research and education. Such projects produce no immediate results, yet they have a lasting impact. This is reflected in MIPT’s high THE standing, which has been steadily improving over the last three years.”
