0

For the past decade, the University of Oxford has been top dog in the world university rankings. But this year, it doesn’t hold its position as comfortably as before. The University of Cambridge is second, followed by Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in third and fourth place respectively. California Institute of Technology retains its fifth spot while Harvard University drops one to sixth position this year. Princeton University remains seventh, while Swiss institutions ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (up one to eighth) and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (up six places to 11th) are the highest climbers in the top ten.

The UK’s top two universities have been ranked at No 1 and 2 by Times Higher Education since 2004 and 2013 respectively. They are both based in England but are not part of any particular university federation; instead, they share resources across all their campuses (including those overseas).

The latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings were released today at 5pm BST with some surprises – including that US News has finally overtaken QS World University Rankings after being held back by its limitations on academic citations per paper published since 2000.

Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) swap positions this year, with Stanford now ranked third and MIT fourth.

Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) swap positions this year, with Stanford now ranked third and MIT fourth. It’s a curious result because both universities are among the top 10 in their respective fields — Stanford is home to some of America’s best computer scientists and engineers; MIT has long been known as one of the world’s most prestigious engineering schools.

The reason why these two institutions are so closely matched is that they have similar reputations for producing innovative research ideas. In fact, it was at an MIT conference where BBN Technologies’ Bob Metcalfe first coined his now-famous ” Ethernet” concept—a way to connect computers across distances greater than 100 meters using simple copper wire instead of expensive coaxial cables or microwave links (which can travel only within inches).

California Institute of Technology retains its fifth place, while Harvard University drops one place to sixth.

Harvard University drops one place to sixth. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which was number one last year, retains its top spot with 2.20 points.

Yale University and Columbia University are joint ninth. Both universities are in the top ten of the world’s colleges and universities, according to U.S News & World Report (USNWR).

Both were founded by wealthy benefactors: Charles T. Morse, who donated $1 million in 1828; and Alexander Hamilton, who donated $100,000 in 1794. They both have very distinguished alumni: Bill Gates (Microsoft founder), Henry Kissinger (former US Secretary of State), John F. Kennedy Jr., James Sutherland “Jimmy” Stewart (actor) among them
