ITs well placed in world ranking of colleges

They have been given top scores under a range of headings seeking to measure colleges under broad headings of teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer and international orientation.

The U-Multirank scheme is a European Commission initiative aimed at helping to identify individual colleges’ strengths and weakness, rather than focusing on ordered rankings.

University College Dublin (UCD) was the only Irish university included in the science and technology ranking, but it is placed highest of all our colleges in 25th place among the 231 institutions compared.

It got A scores in four of the seven categories under which it was assessed, mainly related to science and technology publications, and a B in three others.

Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) got As in seven sub-headings, but its scores were lower than UCD’s, and it is ranked 38th.

They included As in three out of four internationalisation categories, and also for art-related output, top-cited publications, spin-off companies and publications cited in patents.

Galway-Mayo and Cork institutes of technology got four As each, both scoring top marks for graduation rates on bachelor degrees and for international joint publications.

The U-Multirank system gave Institute of Technology Tallaght three As and one to Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
