For the second year in a row, MIT has been named the top university in the world for architecture/built environment in the latest subject rankings from QS World University Rankings. In art and design, the Institute ranked No. 2 globally, a jump from fourth position in 2015. Ten other subject areas at MIT were ranked No. 1.
“This ranking is testament to the success of the MIT model of research and teaching and its global commitment to address complex societal problems,” says [Dean] Hashim Sarkis — MIT
