  • The total number of papers indexed by Science Citation Index-Expanded in engineering fields. The Clark School's score: 56.2
  • The percentage of papers published in the top 20% journals of engineering fields to that in all engineering journals.  The Clark School's score: 81.7
  • The total engineering-related research expenditures as provided by ASEE. The Clark School's score: 76.1

The Clark School's total score is 75.8.

"My congratulations to the entire Clark School family, and in particular our outstanding faculty members, for the exceptional impact we are making in engineering research and for the recognition this gains for the school," said Clark School Dean Darryll Pines.

Since 2003, Shanghai Jiao Tong University's Institute of Higher Education and Center for World-Class Universities has published the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). The ranking is purely objective, based on quantitative measures of productivity with no reputation component. For more information about the rankings, visit www.arwu.org.
