On April 10, the results of the latest edition of the prestigious QS by subject ranking were released. This high-profile, internationally recognized ranking ranks universities within certain subjects of scholarship, providing students and researchers with useful insights. To be included in it is quite a distinction – one that Lodz University of Technology has earned for the second time, this time being classified in four subject areas.


TUL advanced in Mechanical, Aeronautical & Manufacturing Engineering and is now classified in the 351-400 range (previously, the 401-450 range). In other fields, Lodz University of Technology ranks as follows: Chemical Engineering – in the 401-430 range, Materials Science – in the 401-420 range, and last but not least, Chemistry – in the 601-650 range.

The QS by Subject ranking is produced by QS Quacquarelli Symonds, an international higher education analytics company. The 2024 ranking looked at 55 disciplines, grouped into five broad subject areas. A total of nearly 1,600 educational institutions from 149 countries were assessed.

The ranking took into account 5 indicators, attributing different weights to each depending on the discipline. Top universities across the globe were rated with regard to their scholarly renown, their reputation as an employer based on the opinion polls among academics and employers conducted by QS. The remaining criteria included bibliometric indicators (citation counts per article, H-index), and the IRN-index, an indicator reflecting institutional ability to geographically diversify its research by forming sustainable research collaborations with other higher education institutions.
