Foundation: 1958

Mission: Our mission is to create new knowledge and educate future talents. At the same time we must renew ourselves; we take care of our skills, create new ways to do things and update methods of teaching. We wish new ideas welcome and see possibilities in change, since thinking critically helps question old practises. Sharing knowledge and enabling innovations is important to us. We encourage students and colleagues to think open-mindedly, to do things for the first time and, when needed, to learn from their mistakes.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
