Top Computer Science Universities

The university ranking for Computer Science was developed by Research.com, one of the prominent platforms for computer science research maintaining reliable data on scientific contributions since 2014, with the aim of answering the question of what is the best Computer Science university.

The ranking of universities is based on the h-index and bibliometric indicators compiled by December 6th, 2021. The ranking process involved a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers’ profiles from Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Graph. For the discipline of Computer Science, over 9,735 profiles were examined. Scientists from more than 1,470 institutions and affiliations were analyzed. Show more

Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s h-index using data compiled from Microsoft Academic Graph, which is the most prominent and well-established bibliometric database of this type available to the scientific community. A detailed definition of our research process can be found on our methodology page.

Please take into consideration that the research institution or university for a scientist is set based on the affiliation details featured on their Google Scholar profile.
