Engineering and technology education is the most-opted course by the students across the world. If you want to study engineering at the world's best universities, you have to meet all the prerequisites set by the universities that include entrance examinations such as Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
The list of top engineering colleges in the world is prepared based on the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018 engineering and technology subject ranking. Times used the subjects such as general engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical and aerospace engineering, civil engineering and chemical engineering to create this list.
While coming to the methodology for the engineering and technology ranking, Times factored in the teaching (learning environment), research (volume, income and reputation), citations (research influence), international outlook (staff, students and research) and industry income (innovation). Discover the top 10 engineering colleges in the world here.
