TU Delft ranked second best technical university in Europe

Our project partner, TU Delft clinches second place in the new EngiRank ranking, which assesses the quality of technical universities in Europe.

TUD’s research and study programmes score high in the new EngiRank list which ranks 225 technical universities in 27 EU countries. The ranking is based on recognized EU data sources such as CORDIS and Erasmus+ as well as publication and citation statistics based on the Scopus database, and patent statistics from the European Patent Office. With special focus on the EU, EngiRank includes—among other indicators—the universities’ success in raising research funds, and examines how students apply for admission to engineering programmes at technical universities in the EU.

The ranking reflects TU Delft’s strategic focus on offering top-quality engineering programmes, delivering excellent research, and being the preferred partner of the business sector. 

EngiRank provides interesting new perspectives on the European landscape for engineering programmes in higher education. The ranking provides new insights into research and innovation funding as well as student mobility. As EngiRank focuses on universities in the EU, countries like Switzerland and England are not included in the rankings.
