McMaster Again One of Canada’s Best Universities in Recently Released Rankings
It has been a great fall for McMaster. For the second consecutive year, the University has been named Canada’s most research-intensive university in the annual ranking of the country’s Top 50 Research Universities. McMaster researchers brought in $379.9 million in total sponsored research income, achieving a research intensity of averaging $434,700 per faculty member. Research intensity has increased from last year and more than double the national average, according to the 2018 Research Infosource rankings released in October.
Earlier this month, McMaster University has jumped two places to No. 4 on the Maclean’s annual rankings of Canadian universities, in the category for universities with a broad range of research and PhD programs, including medical schools. Student satisfaction was one of the key drivers that pushed McMaster higher in Maclean’s rankings.
The University improved to 77th from 78th in the World University Rankings, published by Times Higher Education, and was ranked fourth among Canadian institutions. These rankings evaluate world-class universities against a host of performance indicators, including research, teaching, internationalization and more. The ranking places McMaster among the top one per cent of universities in the world.
