Best Universities for Computer Engineering in North America

Below is the list of best universities in North America ranked based on their research performance in Computer Engineering. A graph of 883K citations received by 33.4K academic papers made by 204 universities in North America 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.
