In spring 2017, TUSUR was for the first time included in the global RUR ranking: the University reported growth in its research and innovation performance and reaffirmed its consistently high international performance. In summer, TUSUR entered the World League of universities, having ranked 700th in the international reputation ranking complied by RUR.
According to Director of Round University Ranking (RUR) Oleg Solovyov, who visited TUSUR in November, the international academic community sees TUSUR as a research university, in contrast to the generalized profile of a Russian university that traditionally has a strong focus on teaching. The expert adds that a stronger research performance in research is more characteristic to foreign universities and is unique for Russia.
