Methodology: The world’s best universities for engineering and technology, 2017 ranking by the CEOWORLD magazine is based on six major indicators of quality, overall Score (100%) is the sum of:
1) Academic reputation
2) Admission eligibility
3) Job placement rate
4) Recruiter feedback
6) Global reputation and influence
Data for these indicators was collected from publicly available sources, research, survey, and university’s website. It measures the quality of education, job placements of students, and the recruiters feedback, without relying on university data submissions. Students, industry professionals, and recruiters were asked to rate institutions on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”
However, this is by no means a comprehensive list, while the institutions above are the CEOWORLD magazine’s list of the best engineering and technology universities in the world, 2017, there may be many other colleges that offer excellent programs.
