Electrical Engineering and IT

At which universities do academics find the best conditions for research? The new 2007 CHE Research Ranking revises its rating of six of the 16 subjects. Includes: Results for electrical engineering and IT.

Electrical engineering and IT was compared across 34 universities. The research indicators available in this subject include the third-party funding spent, the number of doctorates per annum, and details of the number of patents for which academics in this subject have applied. Reputation is described for information purposes, but was not taken into account when drawing up the groupings of universities where research is a strength for electrical engineering and IT.

The table summarises the universities where research is a strength for electrical engineering and IT. A university is called strong in research if it is placed in the leader group in at least four of the eight indicators. In this subject, none of the universities achieved eight top rankings: the TU Berlin had seven and another five universities were placed in the leader group six times each. All the universities frequently cited by colleagues as a leading place for research (by reputation) appear in the group of those strong in research. The Freiburg Institute for Systems Technology did extremely well in the research ranking - it may be that, given the indicators used, its particular leaning gives it an advantage vis-à-vis traditional faculties.
