Top Engineering Universities in World 2015 – While students are increasingly exploring off beat courses, engineering among other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) subjects continue to the top choice for international students planning to pursue their education abroad.

In USA - home to the largest community of international students in the World - STEM students make up for the majority of the enrolled students’ pursuing both undergraduate and graduate courses.

Keeping up to its reputation as the Top engineering college in the World, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology once again leads the top engineering universities in World for 2015 according to both QS and ARWU. Interestingly, MIT has sealed the top position in most of the departments in the QS world university ranking for engineering 2015.

 

While Stanford, too, maintained its position in the second position, it is CALTECH which has taken a big blow by slipping below the top five places in the top Engineering Colleges in World 2015.

Like in the World University Ranking 2015, USA retains its dominance in the Top Engineering Colleges in World with most of the top 10 spots filled by American universities like MIT, Stanford, Harvard, University of California, Berkeley among others. Other countries that feature in the list are United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan, Germany, Australia, Switzerland and so on.

The ranking, which takes into account two ranking platforms, namely QS and ARWU is based on major yardsticks- i.e teaching, research, Industry income, Citations and international outlook. Here we have compiled a comprehensive listing of the top engineering universities in the World 2015.
