100 Best Materials Science schools in Germany

Below is the list of best universities in Germany ranked based on their research performance in Materials Science. A graph of 5.66M citations received by 236K academic papers made by 101 universities in Germany was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish 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 an official site as it's constantly changing data.
