Top Computer Science Schools in 2014

The three very top computer schools in the world, according to the recently released ranking, are all based in the US. The ranking is headed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) – little surprise, given the university’s now well-established leadership in the fields of engineering and technology. Second and third positions are taken by Stanford University and Carnegie Mellon University, with two more US universities making the top 10; Harvard at 5th and University of California, Berkeley in 6th.

In total, 37 US universities are ranked among the world’s 200 top universities for computer science. As the famous names listed above would suggest, most of these institutions are well known across a wide range of subjects. However, US universities that rank especially well in the computer science field include Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), currently ranked 31st in the world for computer science and 99= in the 2013/14 QS World University Rankings®; and the University of Texas at Austin, which is 32nd for computer science and 71= overall.

Top universities for computer science in the UK

The UK has 19 entries among the world’s 200 top computer science schools, including six within the global top 50. The Universities of Cambridge and Oxford lead the way, ranked 4th and 7th respectively, followed by the University of Edinburgh (12th), Imperial College London (13th), UCL (25th) and the University of Manchester (37th). As in the case of the US, these are all universities which rank well overall, though it is worth noting that this is a particularly strong subject for the University of Edinburgh (currently 17= in the QS World University Rankings), and also for City University London – currently ranked 347th overall, it makes the global top 200 in this subject.
