65 Best universities for Engineering in Canada

Below is the list of best universities in Canada ranked based on their research performance in Engineering. A graph of 8.96M citations received by 325K academic papers made by 65 universities in Canada 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.
