THE World University Rankings 2024

THE (Times Higher Education) has been providing “THE World University rankings” every year since 2004. It uses the data from universities and ranks with the following indicators: teaching (the learning environment); research environment (volume, income and reputation); research quality (the outputs of research); industry (knowledge transfer) and international outlook (staff, students and research). The table shows the ranking of the major private universities in Japan. Shibaura Institute of Technology was ranked 4th in the research environment ranking and it was ranked 6th in the international outlook.
