Clark School Ranked 14th Worldwide
The Institute of Higher Education and Center for World-Class Universities has ranked the Clark School 14th in the world among all engineering programs for 2009 in its Academic Ranking of World Universities.
The institute, a unit of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China, based the rankings on engineering-related research expenditures, highly cited researchers, the number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index - Expanded and the percentage of papers published in top 20 percent of engineering journals. In this last category, the Clark School scored 82 out of a possible 100 points.
"This institute's rankings offer both a world-wide scope and a more data-driven approach than other rankings," noted Clark School Dean Darryll Pines. "Ultimately they reflect the outstanding work performed by our faculty, staff and students."
