100 Best universities for Civil Engineering in Japan

Updated:

EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in Japan ranked based on their research performance in Civil Engineering. A graph of 80.6M citations received by 4.71M academic papers made by 182 universities in Japan 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.
