100 Best colleges for Computational Chemistry in the United States

Updated:

EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in the United States ranked based on their research performance in Computational Chemistry. A graph of 693M citations received by 21.4M academic papers made by 315 universities in the United States 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.
