Mechanical Engineering

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 mechanical engineering.

Mechanical engineering was compared across 35 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 mechanical engineering.

The table summarises the universities where research is a strength for mechanical engineering. A university is called strong in research if it is placed in the leader group in at least three of the six indicators. The picture has changed little compared with the 2004 ranking. No new universities have appeared in the group of those strong in research - just the Faculty for Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Karlsruhe, which had already made that grade in the 2004 ranking. None of the 2004 universities dropped out.
