Best Materials Science Schools in Africa

Updated:

EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in Africa ranked based on their research performance in Materials Science. A graph of 20.1M citations received by 1.83M academic papers made by 292 universities in Africa 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.
