AUSTIN -- The University of Texas at Austin has been given a prestigious honor.

The university has been recognized as the 26th best university in the world and the 7th best public school in the U.S. by the Center for World University Rankings.

UT was also named a "best buy" by the Fiske Rankings, which takes into account the academic offerings and affordable cost.

UT President Bill Powers said of the honors, "Faculty quality drives rankings, rankings build reputation, and a rising reputation attracts students, professors and staff of an ever higher quality."

Texas A&M University and Rice University were also among the top 100 universities in the world. Both were named "best buys" as well.
