Oxford becomes world leader in fields of Computer Science and Engineering

06 December 2018

The University of Oxford has become the first UK university to top Times Higher Education’s computer science and engineering subject rankings.

The Oxbridge university overtook three US universities, known for their strengths in the fields of technology, due to improved scores in teaching environment, graduate income, research environment and international outlook.

Professor Peter Jeavons, Professor of Computer Science and Head of Department at Oxford, said: ‘The whole department is absolutely delighted by this news. It’s testament to a lot of hard work on the part of our staff and students. We’re looking forward to broadening our outlook further to allow future generations to benefit from Oxford’s world-leading teaching and research in Computer Science.’
