In the global ranking of Times Higher Education (THE) World University, published in 2021, Óbuda University (ÓU) first appeared making significant progress. The pace of development of the University is well illustrated by the fact that while earlier (2019) ÓU was ranked internationally (unofficially) in the range of 2000-2100. Whereas, based on 2019-2020 data, the university were simulated for the 1350th position. A year later, in the international rankings Óbuda University was officially positioned by Times Higher Education for the first time, immediately in the range of 1001-1200 to the 1079 position.
Óbuda University is among the first 350 young universities listed as the best Hungarian higher education institution in the THE ranking of young universities.
Óbuda University is the number one university in Hungary in the field of computer science in the THE subject ranking, ranked to 501-600 position and the University is ranked to 601-800 in the Engeneering category.
These indicators also reflect the strengthening and rising standards of the university. Today, every third engineer graduated in Hungary have earned their degree from Óbuda University. The students graduating here will be able to find a job in just a few weeks in their corresponding fields.
Óbuda University is committed to high quality, internationally recognised research. In line with this, the University, on the initiative of the Rector of the University, supports authors of articles published in high quality D1, Q1, Q2 rated journals. As a result of the publication incentives, the number of publications in this segment by university teachers and researchers is increasing. In addition, the number of articles published with international co-authors is growing.
