To compile the World University Rankings by Subject, Times Higher Education evaluates institutions on a total of 18 indicators, which are divided into five areas (education and teaching, research environment, research quality, cooperation with industry and technology transfer, and internationalisation). The weighting of these areas then varies for each subject group.
