Top Computer Science Universities in Canada

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 uses h-index values gathered by May 10th 2021. It was based on a detailed examination of more than 6300 computer science researchers’ profiles on Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Graph. Scientists from more than 1200 institutions and affiliations were analyzed. Show more

The position in the ranking is based on a sum of h-index values of all leading computer science researchers affiliated with a given university. The h-index threshold for being considered a leading scientist was set to 40 provided that the majority of their publications are in the area of computer science.

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.
