The University of Wollongong (UOW) is a public research university located in the city of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia. UOW has gained recognition as the leading university in New South Wales and as one of the best modern universities in the world. The university is also known for its high student satisfaction ratings.
UOW currently offers over 300 undergraduate, postgraduate, and pre-university courses through its four faculties: the Faculty of Business and Law, the Faculty of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences, and the Faculty of Science, Medicine, and Health. Students can also pursue double degrees, double majors, and advanced honors degrees and choose between part-time and full-time study loads.
The university also offers courses for non-school leavers (mature students and students at Technical and Further Education institutions) and preparation and pathway programs for high school graduates. Students at UOW can also participate in semester or year-long exchange programs and study-abroad programs.
Aside from its diverse range of courses, UOW is known for its research excellence. The university has ranked highly in global rankings for citations per faculty and research quality. UOW is also home to numerous research centers and facilities, including the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources (Australia's only university-based research center focused on ocean law, maritime security and natural marine resource management) and Molecular Horizons, a research center dedicated to molecular life sciences.
Many research activities at UOW also occur at the university's Innovation Campus, which was established to drive collaboration between the university's research community and local businesses. The Innovation Campus also houses the iAccelerate Centre, the region's first purpose-built business incubator and accelerator.
UOW traces its roots to the Wollongong College, established in 1951 as a division of the New South Wales University of Technology (now the University of New South Wales), focusing on technical education for engineers and metallurgists. In 1975, Wollongong College was incorporated as the University of Wollongong, an independent institution of higher learning. The university then had five faculties and, in 1982, it merged with the Wollongong Institute of Higher Education.
Today, UOW has expanded to include nine campuses in Australia. Aside from its main campus in Wollongong, the university has campuses in Liverpool, Sydney, Batemans Bay, and the Southern Highlands. In 1993, UOW also established the University of Wollongong in Dubai, one of the oldest universities in the United Arab Emirates.
D-index (Discipline H-index) only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline in
contrast to General H-index which accounts for publications across all disciplines.
Our research was coordinated by Imed Bouchrika, PhD, a computer scientist with a well-established record
of collaboration on a number of international research projects with different partners from the academic
community. His role was to make sure all data remained unbiased, accurate, and up-to-date.
We list only scientists having Microsoft Academic Graph D-Index >= 40 within the area of
