Testament to its unwavering commitment to excellence in higher education, Mapúa University enters the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings (WUR) 2024 alongside four other Philippine universities, marking a significant milestone in its journey towards global recognition. 

The country’s premier engineering and technological school also secures positions in three subject areas, clinching the top spot in the country for Physical Sciences (Rank 801-1000) and sharing the top spot in Computer Science (Rank 801-1000) and Engineering (Rank 1001+) with other esteemed local universities.
