The Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN) continues as the world’s leading network of young universities. All five ATN universities ranked in the top 25 universities in the QS World University Rankings - Top 50 Under 50 2019, released today.
University of Technology Sydney remains Australia’s top ranked young university, ranking 10th in the world. Queensland University of Technology (QUT) ranked 19th, Curtin University 20th, RMIT University 21st and University of South Australia ranked 25th.
ATN Executive Director Renee Hindmarsh says the results reflect the ATN’s reputation as young and internationally engaged, world-leading universities.
“The ATN universities continue to lead young, agile and forward-thinking universities on a global scale. Our universities are innovative, energetic and ambitious in nature, and it’s fantastic to see how strongly they perform compared to similarly aged peers on the world stage.
“20 per cent of the top 50 young universities come from Australia. This is further recognition of Australia’s high quality, higher education sector.”
ATN universities are responsible for educating 22 per cent of Australia’s international students, and 19 per cent of all Australian university graduates.
“ATN graduates are highly employable and valued by industry,” Ms Hindmarsh says.
