Best Universities for Engineering in Africa

Below is the list of best universities in Africa ranked based on their research performance in Engineering. A graph of 2.01M citations received by 169K academic papers made by 235 universities in Africa 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.
