Top 100 ranking engineers bright future for Adelaide graduates
The University of Adelaide’s engineering expertise, which underpins critical industries in South Australia, has risen further into the global top 100 in the latest world university rankings.
The 2022 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings by Subject has seen Engineering at the University of Adelaide ranked 92 in the world, 7 in Australia, and number 1 in South Australia.
In these latest results, the University of Adelaide is also ranked number 1 in South Australia and 7 in Australia for Computer Science (ranked 115 in THE).
“I am very pleased with the latest world rankings by subject, and what they mean for our staff’s expertise, our links with industry, and our students’ and graduates’ outcomes,” says Professor Katrina Falkner, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Adelaide.
“This helps to confirm that the University of Adelaide is one of the world’s leaders in engineering and computer science – two fields that are critical to South Australia’s future. We are also the clear leader in the state in these fields.
“Our teaching and learning is built on a foundation of world-leading research and innovation and industry relevance, which is an outstanding platform for our graduates’ success,” Professor Falkner says.

Last month, THE World University Rankings by Subject also saw the University’s Clinical and Health expertise jump into the top 100 – ranked 73 in the world, 6 in Australia and number 1 in South Australia – with the University of Adelaide also ranked number 1 in South Australia for Physical Sciences and Life Sciences.
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Operations) Professor Michael Liebelt says: “The outstanding rankings for our clinical and health, engineering, and computer science subjects further demonstrates that the University of Adelaide’s expertise will play a key role in the future development of these fields in South Australia for many years to come.
“Our presence at the Lot Fourteen innovation precinct, with the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML), and our presence at the BioMed City precinct, which will soon be home to our new $80 million cancer institute, SAiGENCI (South Australian immunoGENomics Cancer Institute), are two such examples of leadership in research and innovation. These and many future developments will generate great outcomes for South Australian industries and the community,” Professor Liebelt says.
