U of T Engineering remains Canada’s top-ranked engineering school and is now ranked #26 in the world, according to Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for Engineering 2022.

The rankings, released today, mark an increase from last year’s position of #28. Among North American public universities, our closest competitors, U of T Engineering ranks seventh. 

“The continued rise in our international reputation is a direct reflection of the talent and dedication of our community: faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners,” said Dean Chris Yip 

“You can see it in the global impact of our research, the richness of our student experience, and the achievements of our graduates in all corners of the world. I’m so proud of the role we play in nurturing the next generation of engineering leaders.” 

In terms of overall institution-level rankings, U of T was #18 in the world, a position it has held for the last three years. It shares the spot with University College London. 

“I am delighted to see the University of Toronto once again ranked among the top 20 schools in the world in the prestigious Times Higher Education World University Rankings,” said U of T President Meric Gertler. 

 “U of T’s consistently strong performance in these and other global rankings reflects our ongoing commitment to excellence in research and teaching across a wide array of disciplines, as well as our global reputation as one of the world’s very best public universities.” 

 The THE World University Rankings measure a university’s performance based on 13 indicators, grouped into five “pillars.” The most important categories are research, citations and teaching, which are weighed 30 per cent each. The remaining 10 per cent reflects a university’s international outlook, including the ratio of international to domestic students, and research income from industry.
