NC State Computer Science Achieves Top 25 US Rank

One of academia’s fastest-moving disciplines—computer science-- is thriving at NC State, recently receiving high accolades from an international education trade publication.
Times Higher Education, a weekly magazine based in London, released its “World University Rankings” for 2016-2017, ranking the N.C. State computer science program 21st in the United States and 84th internationally.
The magazine evaluated each institution on five core missions: teaching, research, citations, international outlook, and industry income. In order to keep the integrity of the ranking, PricewaterhouseCooper (PWC) independently audited the rankings’ calculations.
The number of times a university’s work is published makes up the basis for citation scores. Scoring in the 90% percentile for citations, NC State’s computer science program stands out for spreading knowledge globally.
International outlook is another standard used to determine ranking. Ranking in the 56.3% percentile, NC State prospers because of the program’s ability to attract students and teachers on a global scale.
