Top Materials Science Universities

The university ranking for Materials 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 Materials 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 Materials Science, over 11,166 profiles were examined. Scientists from more than 1,396 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.
