The renowned ShanghaiRanking Consultancy published their 2019 rankings of universities around the world in various academic subjects, including Electrical and Electronic Engineering in which they ranked NC State University as number nine in the world, up one place from number 10 last year.
“I think the ShanghaiRanking is particularly significant in that it is the only major ranking based entirely on quantitative data—not surveys,” explained Daniel Stancil, Alcoa Distinguished Professor of electrical and computer engineering and ECE Department Head.
The ARWU Shanghai Ranking is published annually and gives an insight into the academic quality of the world’s leading institutions. General university rankings are provided, as well as global rankings on specific academic subjects. Topics covered are the number of scientific publications, citation impact, the number of paper in top-rated journals and internationally collaborated papers.
The groundbreaking work being done by faculty and researchers was recognized with NC State receiving the third-highest score for citation impact, and the fourth-highest for number and impact of awards received by faculty.
