And on Caltech
The Times Higher Education has published its World University Rankings for 2011-12 and California Institute of Technology (Caltech) tops the list in the engineering and technology sector, followed by Harvard, Stanford and Oxford Universities. The ranking methodology is based on assessing thirteen performance indicators across five areas: Teaching; Research; Citations; Industry income and International outlook. The rankings for physical sciences will be published later this year.
