Rankings

In the last year, Barcelona School of Civil Engineers has improved its position in the international rankings.

This improvement is the result, on the one hand, of the high level of scientific production of our teaching staff, which is shown by the impact of the number of articles published in indexed international journals (Science Citation Index, SCI) in the field of civil engineering and the number of citations of these articles, and on the other hand, the large number of European research projects in which we participate, as well as prizes and distinctions awarded by international organizations and institutions.

To the high scientific output, in achieving these good positions, we must add the good academic reputation of our school and the growing internationalization of the institution, which has seen increased the presence of international students and degrees recognized by the European Union with the Erasmus Mundus quality label. The school also offers 5 doctoral programs awarded with the Mention of Excellence by the Spanish National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA). This award shows the recognition of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports to the scientific, technical and training solvency of doctoral training programs that represent an international benchmark, both for its performance and its results.

Moreover, these rankings place value in the quality of the degrees taught and the high research level that our teaching and research staff develops.
