Florida Tech has risen to the top 200 in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2013-2014. Only three universities in Florida made the list’s Top 200.
The rankings, powered by Thomson Reuters, include the top 400 universities, worldwide. These rankings are based on school scores in five categories: teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook.
In the citations category, which Times Higher Education uses as its “research influence indicator,” Florida Tech scored a 99 out of a possible 100—higher than such well-respected universities as Yale, Duke, Carnegie Mellon, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and University of Chicago. According to THE’s website, the citations score is based on the number of times a university’s published work is cited by scholars around the world, effectively illustrating how much a university is contributing to the sum of human knowledge.
