100 Best universities for Computer Science in South Korea

Updated:

EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in South Korea ranked based on their research performance in Computer Science. A graph of 29.5M citations received by 1.67M academic papers made by 141 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 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.
