Aalto University Computer Science placed 79 in the NTU ranking

Chemical Engineering and Electrical Engineering in the top 100

Aalto University's places in the ranking by National Taiwan University (NTU) improved. The comparison is based on the publication and citation data on research activity recorded in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science database, with an emphasis on data from the two latest years.

The NTU ranking lists fields of science and special subjects within them.  In the field of Engineering Aalto University was the best university in Finland with the rank 112th; the previous year it was ranked 125th.

The field of Engineering is further divided into comparisons in special subjects. Computer Science ranked best with its 79th place, and Aalto University was the best Nordic University in this subject.  Chemical Engineering ranked 92nd and Electrical Engineering 96th. Civil Engineering took a leap from last year’s 224th place to 129th in 2016.

In the overall NTU ranking Aalto University improved its position to 332nd from previous year's 365th place. The NTU ranking has been published since 2007.

Depending on the way calculated, there are between 17 000 and 22 000 universities in the world. Aalto University is specialised in technology, business and arts. The most relevant rankings are the field- or subject-specific ones: they are better than general rankings in describing the university's area of activity.
