IMT Mines Alès ranked in the top 10% worldwide in the international Webometrics ranking.

The international Webometrics league table has unveiled its ranking of the best higher education institutions for the 1st half of 2020. Among the 30,000 institutions scrutinised, IMT Mines Alès has continued its progress and moved into the top 10% worldwide*.

While this overall ranking already gives our school an excellent place, the indicators of openness and excellence are even better rewarded. The school is ranked in the top 8% and 9% of institutions worldwide on these two criteria. These elements are measured by the academic results of researchers as posted on Google Scholar** and their online distribution.

"Our school already enjoys good recognition at national level. Since we became part of the ITM in 2017, our international visibility has been booming. The Webometrics ranking confirms this with an objective international point of view. This is very important both for the international prospects of our students and for developing our attractiveness to foreign students", says Pierre Perdiguier, deputy director of the school.

Since 2004, the international Webometrics ranking has measured the presence, accessibility and influence of universities in relation to Internet data. In reality, this original positioning masks a serious approach initiated in response to the global need to improve institutions' web practices and, above all, to achieve greater academic transparency online.
