100 Best Materials Science schools in Japan

Updated:

EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in Japan ranked based on their research performance in Materials Science. A graph of 80.6M citations received by 4.71M academic papers made by 363 universities in Japan 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.
