Within Slovakia, STU also placed best in other categories, such as architecture, civil engineering, chemical engineering, engineering, electrical engineering, material engineering and mathematics, the university stated in a press release on March 23.

In some of these categories, (e.g. civil engineering, mathematics) it ranked even better than or, in others (electrical engineering, engineering) the same as computer sciences, but the evaluators based the ranking on only the best 100 or 200 universities globally. The ranking in individual categories can be found at www.stuba.sk.

„We are closing on the top global universities, and I believe we can go still higher,” STU rector Robert Redhammer said. “We have all the pre-conditions for that: experienced teachers, new laboratories with unique devices, internationally respected research, and intense cooperation with businesses.

The QS World University Rankings belongs to the so-called “big three” rankings – QS World University Rankings, ARWU- Shanghai Rankings, and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. These publish the world's best-ranking colleges and universities, with the criteria including the university's reputation among academics and employees, its size, international cooperation and research outputs according to publications and number of quotations.  

QS World University Rankings evaluated 4,226 universities worldwide, with 945 making it into the final ranking, divided into 42 categories, from arts and humanities, through economics and natural sciences, to technology, medicine or chemistry.
