Facts About University of Antwerp
The University of Antwerp (UA) is a public research university located in the port city of Antwerp, Belgium. Founded in 1973, UA sets itself apart by being a young, dynamic, and forward-looking university. It boasts of being a comprehensive research university with internationally accredited teaching methods. The university’s mission is to give access to and aid in the dissemination of scientific knowledge through research, teaching, and service to society in the Antwerp region and internationally. It aims to do this while promoting the values of active pluralism, diversity, and sustainability.
UA offers more than 140 programs for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. The university has 30 bachelor’s, 69 master’s, 20 advanced master’s and 22 postgraduate degrees. These are taught across nine faculties: arts, law, science, social sciences, design sciences, applied engineering, business and economics, medicine and health sciences, and pharmaceutical, biomedical and veterinary sciences. UA also has a School of Education, Institute of Development Policy, and 15 centers of excellence.
The university’s origins can be traced back to three entities: Universitaire Faculteiten Sint-Ignatius Antwerpen (UFSIA), Rijksuniversitair Centrum Antwerpen (RUCA), and Universitaire Instelling Antwerpen (UIA). RUCA was borne from the merging of two commercial institutes founded in 1852, while UFSIA was the renamed entity of The Sint Ignatius School of Economics. On the other hand, UIA was founded in 1971, primarily offering postgraduate studies.
In 1973, these three entities formed a confederation under the name of the University of Antwerp. In 1995, the Flemish government enacted a law that gave UA a confederate structure. From 2013 to 2014, courses from Artesis University College Antwerp and Karel de Grote University College were merged into certain faculties at UA.
Notable alumni from UA include Dirk van de Put, chairman and CEO of Mondelez International; microbiologist Peter Piot, who discovered the Ebola virus and was a pioneering AIDS researcher; and software programmer Dries Buytaert, the founder of the Drupal content management system.
Despite having a short history, UA has received distinguished rankings internationally. It has received top 5 to 20 placement from Times Higher Education and QS World University Rankings for young universities. It has also figured in the top 200 to 400 universities in the world based on QS, THE, and Shanghai Rankings.
The university has been involved in innovative and sustainable projects. Together with local organizations, it is part of the Brussels Clean Air Partnership, which aims to improve air quality in the city. UA scientists have also developed a method for sustainably produced ammonia for fertilizers and are working on algorithms for drones to automatically detect oil incidents in the Port of Antwerp.Read Less...
