The 2019 Shanghai university rankings are out. In the Transport Science & Technology subject, the University of Sydney is ranked #5 in the world:
- Beijing Jiaotong University
- Tsinghua University
- Delft University of Technology
- Southeast University
- University of Sydney
- Tongji University
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- University of British Columbia
- University of California Berkeley
- Shanghai Jiao Tong University
Our Civil Engineering program moved to 24th according to these rankings. The University did well overall. While I don’t much trust rankings, I’ll brag anyway. I am proud to be a part of this. If you too want to be a part of this, get a degree at the University of Sydney. Our new Master of Transport Program is available now …
Develop your critical understanding about the engineering, urban planning, and business management of transport. Understand the prevalence and identification of transport systems and core capabilities for analysing and designing them.
Our Master of Transport is Australia’s first interdisciplinary degree, focusing on the engineering, urban planning, and business management of transport.
This professional full-time degree is ideal for graduates wanting to pursue a career in the global transport sector or professionals already in the field wanting to upskill.
It is designed to further your ability for strategic and logical reasoning, deduction, network and temporal data analysis, and expand your proficiencies in broad interdisciplinary analysis.
Our Master of Transport is truly multidisciplinary, allowing professionals the opportunity to undertake a unique combination of units spanning engineering, architecture and business throughout their studies.
It also leverages the strengths of the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies, which has exceptionally strong links with industry and is recognised by the Australian Government as a centre of excellence in research and education, and the ongoing transport engineering research being undertaken by the Faculty of Engineering.
Candidates for the Master of Transport complete 72 credit points, consisting of:
- 48 credit points of core units
- 18 credit points of electives
- a 6 credit point capstone unit

I posted skeptically late last year On Academic Rankings. Some new rankings have come out, so it is time to brag or fret some more. The world renowned ARWU has come out with new rankings for Civil Engineering, and better still, for Transport.
I am pleased to report Sydney comes in 7th globally in Transport. None of this is my doing, I just got here, but nevertheless it is good to hear.

This is not how I would rank the universities, but feel free to look at the methodologies and construct your own.

Sydney comes in at 32 globally in Civil Engineering (a bigger arena than transport usually). Again I am not responsible, and this is not how I would rank them, and it sure is puzzling how this is how it came out, and sadly we are behind local rival UNSW, but that is being worked on …

With my colleague Chen-fu Liao, I am attending the Transportation Education Conference at Portland State University June 22-24, 2009. Our presentation, Simulating Transportation for Realistic Engineering Education and Training (STREET), is now online. It describes the NSF-funded STREET project.
