Last year, Opole University of Technology made its debut in the rankings, securing the 9th place among 32 academic institutions in Poland. This year, it has clinched the 4th position in the ranking of Polish technical universities.

The THE ranking assesses universities across their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook. To ensure comprehensive and balanced comparisons, institutions are evaluated based on 18 carefully calibrated performance indicators grouped into five categories: teaching (learning environment), research environment (size, research income, and reputation), research quality (citation impact, research strength), international outlook (staff, students, and research), and industry (knowledge transfer, industry income, and patents).
