World's Top 50 Engineering and Technology Universities

World's Top Engineering and Technology Universities

Studying engineering abroad is a wise decision because you will get well-rounded education with access to the latest innovations and research facilities.

Engineering is a very broad discipline, further divided into many branches and specializations like Computer Science, Mechanical, Electronics etc.

Countries may have different admission criteria but there are common points across board: strong academic record, completion of high school equivalent of the country you are applying to (for undergraduate programs) and similar higher qualifications for higher programs (like masters, doctorate, postdoctorate), language proficiency (IELTS, TOEFL), achievements in extracurricular activities amongst others.

Top 50 Engineering and Technology Universities (2011-12) rated by Times Higher Education, THE

The engineering and technology table is, like it was last year, dominated by California. Three of the top five institutions in the rankings hail from the Golden State, home of the global high-tech hub Silicon Valley.

In total, 22 US institutions feature in the top 50. The UK also scores highly in the table, with three of the top 10 and five representatives overall. Asia has 10 institutions in the top 50 (compared with only six from mainland Europe), headed by the National University of Singapore (19th).
