Best Engineering and Technology Universities in United States

The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of top Engineering and Technology universities is based on data collected from Microsoft Academic Graph on December 6th, 2021. Position in the ranking is based on a sum of D-index (Discipline H-index) values of all leading scientists affiliated with that university. D-index only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline. A leading scientist is a scholar with a D-index of at least 30 in an examined discipline. Show more

The ranking process involved a detailed examination of 166,880 researchers’ profiles from Microsoft Academic Graph. For the discipline of Engineering and Technology, over 17,156 profiles were examined. Scientists from more than 1,548 institutions and affiliations were analyzed.

Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s D-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.
