Best Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Universities in the World 2022

The 1st edition of Research.com ranking of top Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering 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 Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, over 3,637 profiles were examined. Scientists from more than 502 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.
