CDU shines among world’s top 100 young universities

Charles Darwin University has again featured on a prestigious list of the world’s best universities that are less than 50 years old.

The Times Higher Education “100 Under 50” list recognises the rising stars of higher education globally, and has CDU in 77th place.

CDU Vice-Chancellor Professor Barney Glover said the rankings reflected positively on the variety, quality and excellence of research programs taking place and the potential of the Territory’s university.

This is the second year Times Higher Education has released a list of the top 100 young universities and is also the second time that CDU has claimed a place.

“The challenge for CDU as a small regional university was to maintain the ranking in the competitive international system, so these rankings are particularly gratifying. With more than 22,000 students, CDU continues to grow from strength to strength and offers a fresh approach to training, education, research and knowledge application.”

A total of 13 Australian universities featured on the list this year, with CDU 9th among the Australian institutions.

Thirteen performance indicators were used to determine rankings in the “100 Under 50” list, including research volume, income and reputation; citations; the learning environment and international outlook.

The single largest indicator, citations, examines a university’s research influence by capturing the number of times its published works are cited by scholars around the world.

The data is drawn from some 12,000 academic journals indexed by Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science database, and adjusted to reflect variations in citation volume between different subject areas.
