The European Ranking of Engineering Programs (EngiRank) is a pilot project for the ranking of engineering institutions and programs in 13 countries that joined the European Union in 2004 or after: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, and Malta. It is a product of a partnership of the Perspektywy Education Foundation, Poland, FRSE Poland, IREG, and Elsevier and was supported by consultations with industrial experts at international seminars.
The ranking is based on 15 indicators grouped in five clusters:
- Research Effectiveness (20%); publications, citations, field-weighted citation impact, publications in top 10% journals
- Innovation (35%); external funding for research, patents, collaboration with environment,
- Quality of Teaching (20%); availability of teaching staff, accreditations
- Prestige (5%); position in national rankings or Webometrics
- Internationalization (20%); international students, outbound and inbound student mobility, student internships, international collaboration impact.
The top university overall is Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, followed by AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland, and Prague University of Chemistry and Technology, Czechia.
