SAN ANTONIO – UTSA was named among the top four "young" universities in the United States and among the top 68 young universities in the world under 50 years old, according to Times Higher Education’s prestigious Young University Rankings.
The 2017 ranking looked at 200 universities under the age of 50 from around the world and measured them in categories such as teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.
"The Times Higher Education’s rankings are widely considered some of the most respected international measures of excellence in higher education,” said UTSA Interim President Dr. Pedro Reyes. “This ranking is an affirmation that our academic and research programs are among the top in the world and our students are getting world-class education and training to prepare them for their careers.”
It is the fifth time that UTSA has been included in Times Higher Education’s Young University Rankings. The university also was included in the publication’s 2012, 2013 and 2014 and 2016 rankings.
UTSA’s international standing also increased nine places from 2016, when it was ranked No. 77.
Only four other U.S. universities made this year’s Young Universities list. They include UT-Dallas (#21), Rush University (#33), George Mason University (#47) and Florida International University (#89).
