Times Higher Education (THE) has released the THE World University Rankings by subjects: Computer Science and Engineering Technology. The rankings reveal the top 749 universities in computer science and the top 1008 universities in engineering technology.

Russia has 17 universities listed in the Computer Science ranking table, 12 of them are Project 5-100 participants.

Two Project 5-100 universities feature among the world’s 100 best universities in this subject: ITMO University (74th) and MIPT (95th), which has climbed up from the band 101-125.

SPbPU has joined the top 200 universities in computer sciences, rising up from the 301-400 band to 151-175. Another Russian university to have been listed in the top 200 is MSU (101-125 band).

The top 400 of the rankings feature HSE and MEPhI. RUDN is a newcomer to the rankings.

The Engineering Technology table features 34 Russian universities, 18 of them are Project 5-100 participants.

ITMO University and SPbPU have found their way into the 201-250 band, rising up from the bands 301-400 and 401-500, respectively. They are closely followed by TPU (251-300 band).

MIPT and TSU are listed in the top 400 of the rankings, MEPhI has broken the top 500.

Three of the Project 5-100 universities have made it to the Engineering Technology ranking table for the first time: KFU, RUDN, SUSU.

MSU ranked in the 126-150 band is Russia's leader in this subject ranking.

To compile its Arts and Humanities Rankings, THE uses the same 13 performance metrics as for its overall university standings but adjusts their weightings to reflect the specifics of the subject area. These indicators fall into five broad categories: teaching (learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).
