New ranking, new record of the University of Porto. The "QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022" honours the institution in 27 areas of study, including it among the 100 best in Architecture, Civil Engineering and Information Management.


Notícias UPorto stresses that this is the "best performance ever" of the institution in the "prestigious annual ranking of Quacquarelli Symonds (QS)". Standing out among the best in the world in 27 out of 51 disciplines, the U.Porto was evaluated according to indicators such as academic reputation, employer reputation and scientific output.


In this year's list, we must acknowledge the debut and direct entry to the group of the 220 best in the area of Geophysics. It is also important to acknowledge the return of the university's Linguistics to the top 251-300.


Always exceeding the positions of previous years, the U.Porto saw improved performance in the areas of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Agriculture and Education (101-150), but also Medicine (151-200), Mathematics (251-300) and Physics & Astronomy (301-350).


In the other areas, Pharmacology, Sports, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Pharmacy are among the 101 to 150 best, and Environmental Sciences appear between 151 and 200 in the QS World University Rankings by Subject, followed by Art and Design, between 201 and 230 best. The list also includes Biological Sciences, between 201 and 250, and, in the group of the top 300 universities, Computer Science, Materials Sciences, Finance, Modern Languages, Medicine, Psychology, Chemistry and Sociology.


In addition to the rankings by specific areas, Quacquarelli Symonds also classifies the institutions in five broad subject areas. In this aspect, the major highlight of the University of Porto is the rise - from 248th to 146th place - of Life Sciences & Medicine.


When compared with other national higher education institutions, the University of Porto appears as the best in 14 subjects. Here, Agriculture, Architecture, Art & Design, Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Pharmacology, Education, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Information Management and Psychology maintain first place (alone or ex aequo with other institutions). What is new is the isolated leadership of Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Medicine.


The University is also in second place in Computer Science, Materials Science, Sports, Finance, Physics & Astronomy, Geophysics, Management, Modern Languages, Linguistics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Sociology, and third in Economics.


Looking at the five broad subject areas assessed, U.Porto is once again the best Portuguese University in Life Sciences and Medicine and in Engineering and Technology.
