NRC publishes Top 100 Universities in USA for Computer Science rankings every 10 years. It takes long time for them to gather detailed information about research in computer science departments.

Universities that offer Graduate programs are then ranked using various factors. End result of the surveys and information is Top 100 Universities in USA for Computer Science.

you may not understand the R and S rank concept, but all it matters is list of Top 100 Universities in America for Computer Science and Engineering for MS and PhD.
