Best Materials Science Schools in Asia

Updated:

EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in Asia ranked based on their research performance in Materials Science. A graph of 353M citations received by 25.6M academic papers made by 2,467 universities in Asia 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.
