ETH Zurich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, claimed the top spot in the 2016-2017 Times Higher Education World University Ranking of computer science institutions based on its strong performance across all three pillars of the overall score. In teaching alone, the university gained three positions since last year’s ranking. The university is now the only institution from outside the US and the UK to emerge among the top 10 in the overall world university ranking and the top 5 in one of the eight subject-matter rankings.
The traditional dominance of world renowned Anglo-American universities is less distinct in computer science—a subject newly added to the ranking this year—as compared to the other subjects covered by the ranking.
The emergence of ETH Zurich as the leading computer science academic institutions tests the relevance of the rankings for the financial sustainability and reputational growth of these institutions. Despite "generous funding" from the Swiss government and producing 20 Nobel Prize Laureates, including Albert Einstein, the university has a relatively weak ability to attract funding in the commercial marketplace. The university's industry income score slumped considerably in the 2016-2017 ranking compared to the previous year even as it outperformed in other areas.
This page explores enrollment, expenditure spent on, and test scores for basic education. Although the percent of GDP the United States spends on education is moderate in relations to the other countries, its Science and Math scores are ranked relatively poorly.
On this page it is gathered most relevant data and information concerning education which cover essential topics and indicators of education systems of different countries throughout the world in order to enable comprehensive analysis. It is important to understand global education tendencies in order to support sustainable development. So, literacy still remains important problem since more than 40 percent of population of Sub-Saharan Africa remains illiterate accounting for almost half of the world's illiterate population. It is closely connected to the problem of lack of teachers in the region: in average it accrues about 40 pupils per...
Internationalcomparisons.org reviews tertiary education attainment, top universities per country, tertriary education expenditure, and think tanks per capita.
