The U-Multirank promoted by the European Union is an analytical evaluation that includes 36 indicators, each one with a score that goes from 1 (very good) to 5. The ranking mainly evaluates 5 aspects: teaching, research, technology transfer, internationalisation and relations with the territory in terms of graduate employment and partnership with the local socio-economic system. The goal is to provide each university (on a global scale) with an interpretation on its own strengths and weaknesses. Out of 36 parameters studied, Politecnico di Torino obtained a score of very good or good in 24 of them: 5 very good and 19 good. The excellence of Politecnico is the number of post-doc positions where it always had a score of very good in the last three years. Research and technology transfer were judged positively and Rector Guido Saracco is satisfied with the results, which show that the politics used by the university are effective.
What do you think? Do you think that the ranking has identified the strengths of Politecnico?
