100 Best Materials Science schools in South Korea

Below is the list of best universities in South Korea ranked based on their research performance in Materials Science. A graph of 4.53M citations received by 222K academic papers made by 108 universities in South Korea 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.
