DTU named best technical university in Europe

17 November 2023 | The research and study programmes of Technical University of Denmark (DTU) top the new EngiRank list that ranks 225 technical universities in 27 EU countries. With Technical University of Munich (4th) and Eindhoven University of Technology (7th), two more EuroTech Universities make it to the top 10. École Polytechnique ranks 37th. The ranking is based on recognised EU data sources such as CORDIS and Erasmus+ as well as publication and citation statistics based on the Scopus database, and patent statistics from the European Patent Office. With special focus on the EU, EngiRank includes – among other indicators – the universities’ success in raising research funds, and examines how students apply for admission to engineering programmes at technical universities in the EU.

EngiRank has been created at the initiative of the Polish ‘Perspektywy’ Education Foundation, which has published the Perspektywy University Ranking as well as several rankings of secondary schools and MBA programmes in Poland for almost 25 years. The rankings are based on recognized data sources and not on questionnaire surveys on reputation or on own reporting from the universities.

The primary partners in the new EngiRank are Poland’s Erasmus+ National Agency, the Foundation for the Development of the Education System (FRSE), and the academic publisher Elsevier, which has provided data support. Other partners include the IREG Observatory on Academic Ranking and Excellence (an international organization of rankers and analysts of academic rankings), and the Engineers Europe federation of professional engineers.
