This ranking lists all the best researchers from the Computer Science discipline and
affiliated with MIT.
There are a total of 131 researchers included with 36 of them also being included in the global ranking.
The total sum for the D-index values for the best scientists
in MIT is 7,923 with a mean value for
the h-index of 60.48. The total sum of
publications for the best scientists in MIT is 30,546 with the
mean value for publications per scientist of 233.18.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a private educational institution in Cambridge Massachusetts. Established in 1861, this private land-grant research university is informally known as Boston Tech and is a member of the Association of American Universities. MIT also adopts a European polytechnic university model. The university ranks high among institutions of higher learning worldwide.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Key Statistics
MIT’s educational structure comprises five schools. These five schools are the School of Architecture Planning, the School of Engineering, the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and the School of Science. The university also offers over 40 graduate and undergraduate degrees across multiple fields of study, including computer science, engineering, architecture, and mathematics.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology is composed of more than 11,000 students, including over 4,500 undergraduates and nearly 7,000 postgraduates. They are being supervised by a 1,074-strong faculty, which are spread across its 166-acre campus. The MIT campus is also near public amenities, such as the Kendall/MIT MBTA Red Line station, Massachusetts Avenue, and Kendall Square.
Other Massachusetts Institute of Technology key statistics are its academic and non-academic facilities that include student dormitories, the MIT Museum, and the List Visual Arts Center. It also has a comprehensive library system, which has five subject libraries. These five subject libraries include Rotch for Arts and Architecture, Lewis for Music, and Hayden for Humanities and Science.
MIT is also known for its remarkable roster of past and present faculty and alumni that include 97 Nobel laureates, 58 National Medal of Science recipients, 8 Fields Medalists, 29 National Medals of Technology and Innovation recipients, and 26 Turing Award winners.

D-index (Discipline H-index) only includes papers and citation values for an examined discipline in
contrast to General H-index which accounts for publications across all disciplines.
Our research was coordinated by Imed Bouchrika, PhD, a computer scientist with a well-established record
of collaboration on a number of international research projects with different partners from the academic
community. His role was to make sure all data remained unbiased, accurate, and up-to-date.
We list only scientists having D-Index >= 30 within the area of
Computer Science. If you or other scholars are not listed, we appreciate if you can
