MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. Judged by the ‘quality of education’ criterion, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) has earned a place for itself among the global top twenty universities by some worldwide educators.
The Jeddah-based Center for World University Ranking, or CWUR published its annual rankings of the 1000 best universities throughout the world and MIPT was awarded a spot in the top twenty.
"The fact that the global rankings assigned MIPT such a high rating based on the quality of alumni education demonstrates the success of our lecturers, scientists, and students," said MIPT dean, Nikolay Kudryadtsev.
CWUR judges evaluated 25,000 universities based on eight criteria: the quality of education, the employment level of alumnus, level of scientific and teaching personnel, publications and their amount, citation ratings, the Hirsch university index, and patents. According to the first criterion, which is measured by the number of international awards and prizes received by alumnus, MIPT has achieved the best success.
Additionally, MIPT has made gains in the rankings, moving up 32 places compared to last year and entered 218th place in the joint ranking. In addition, the institute took second place among Russian universities, trailing behind Moscow State University.
The CWUR ranking has been published annually starting from 2012. MIPT joined the ranking as of 2015, with only five Russian universities taking the following spots: MSU (59), MIPT (250), Saint Petersburg State University (406), Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (755), and Novosibirsk State University (985). As of 2016, MIPT is the only Russian University, which has moved up in the ranking.
