Top 100 Engineering Universities in The World

Top 100 Engineering Universities in The WorldTop 100 Engineering Universities in The World based on Academic Rankings of World Universities. Rankings includes Engineering and Computer Science.

Sometimes, rankings of Universities doesn’t make  lot of sense due to the methodology based on Survey.

When rankings are based on facts and numbers, you can give more importance.

PS: Rankings give a way to compare schools, but what you get out of the school will based on your effort.

    i have planned to take ma gre nov 2013 ,will i be able to get admission in top 100 universities for fall 2014 in us? since deadlines of most of universities close by nov.

  2. niloy on August 3, 2013 at 12:26 AM

    I am studying at the University of texas, dallas. My major is computer science. I got accepted from uni of texas austin, but unable to move due to high tuitions. Is it necessary to complete my under graduation degree from a top ranked university? My financial condition is not good enough though. Please give me some suggestions. I a from bangladesh by the way

  3. Ravikumar on April 9, 2013 at 1:08 AM

    Can you let me know the rankings for Masters in Engineering Management ,US Universities.

  4. Mehdi on April 5, 2013 at 4:18 AM

    could u introduce rank of universities in “industrial Engineering” in Canada, in Europe, please?

  5. Nitish on April 2, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    I think this is the source –>

  6. Alaa Albeiruti on April 2, 2013 at 11:47 AM

    Which engineering specialty most wanted in the market ?

  7. Nikhil Patil on April 2, 2013 at 11:40 AM

    Well this ranking is misleading. ETH Zurich (You can also call it “The MIT of Europe”) is much better than EPFL lausanne and yet it is ranked on the lower side. The second are where these rankings loose their credibility is the fact that none of the IITs appear in this list. HSB I have been following all your posts and found most of them very useful. Please use rankings from credible sources like usnews. Donot misguide people by posting such ranking.

  8. XYZ on April 1, 2013 at 6:00 AM

    Please name your source. As far as my take on it goes, this ranking is not at all accurate. Plus, as mentioned above there are a host of engineering colleges that you haven’t even mentioned!

  9. Yon on April 1, 2013 at 4:16 AM

    Top rank universities in the world is always misleading. It depends on who release it, political affiliates and economical factors (business interest). E.g., when Malaysia government not opposing U.S., their universities’ ranks are higher than when the government opposing the U.S. It also depends on the language used on lectures. Lectures in English will increase the rank. That’s why only some universities in Germany shows up in the rank. We know the engineering universities in Germany are one of the best.

    • Prabhakaran on April 1, 2013 at 8:56 AM

      Hello Yon,

      I am delighted that you have mentioned that German universities are best for engineering. But, still people rank American universities at the top. Can you enlighten me, why did you choose to say Germany is best?

      It would me very helpful to me. Thanks in advance.
