29 April 2015 – The QS World University Rankings by Subject released today shows Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) to have two subjects in the top 100 universities in worldwide rankings, namely, Architecture (Built Environment) and Chemical Engineering.

What is even more remarkable is the fact that although this is the first time UTM Architecture (Built Environment) has been cited, it topped the rank at 51-100. In the same class rank is UTM Chemical Engineering.

When expanded to cover the top 150, UTM also qualified for the subjects of mechanical; aeronautical and manufacturing engineering; electrical and electronic engineering and civil and structural engineering.

Other UTM subjects which merit a mention is Material Sciences and Computer Science, which are both in the 151-200 rank; Environmental Sciences which has been ranked 201-250; and Chemistry and Mathematics, both ranked at 301-400.

This year’s QS World University Rankings by Subject 2015 exercise saw 10 UTM subjects being ranked, as compared to only 5 in the 2014 exercise.
