Top 100

From our world-class teaching facilities at the Mawson Lakes campus, we engage in leading-edge teaching and fundamental applied research, including research through the Defence and Systems Institute. The University of South Australia boasts standards of academic excellence in engineering and technology that have been ranked amongst the top 100 universities in the world, the top six in Australia and the only university in South Australia in the 2013-14 Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

This follows recognition from Excellence in Research Australia for our global vision and outstanding dedication to industry research with the achievement of a ‘world-class or above’.

We also have strong links with industry, which benefits our students as they gain hands-on experience through internships and projects. For example, we are a key player in a partnership with Hills Limited to put South Australia at the forefront of innovative product design and technology expertise for a wide range of industries, from aged care and health to security and safety.
