The Times Higher Education journal has put together a ranking of the best universities in the so-called New Europe, or the countries which joined the European Union in the 21st century. The Warsaw University of Technology ranked 16th in this group.

The top 3 of the ranking are the University of Tartu (Estonia) and two universities based in Cyprus: the Cyprus University of Technology and the University of Cyprus. The best Poland-based university in the table is the University of Warsaw (ranked 6th). The Warsaw University of Technology comes third, the other Polish institution ahead of it being the Jagiellonian University (13th place ex aequo).

The ranking includes 53 institutions in total from across 12 countries: Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Croatia (Malta being the only so-called new EU Member State without its representative on the list). The most represented countries are the Czech Republic (13 institutions) and Poland (12 institutions).


The ranking uses the same methodology as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The table explores 13 criteria grouped into five pillars: teaching, research, citation, international outlook and industry income.
