Best Universities for Architecture in Europe

Below is the list of best universities in Europe ranked based on their research performance in Architecture. A graph of 429K citations received by 32K academic papers made by 366 universities in Europe was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science profiles.
