Colorado School of Mines named top mineral and mining school in the world
March 13, 2017

For the second consecutive year the Colorado School of Mines has been ranked as the top school in the world for mining and mineral engineering by QS World Rankings.

The QS World University Rankings by Subject highlight the top universities in the world in 46 subjects.

Each of the subject rankings is compiled using four sources (academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations per paper and is own H-Index). The first two of these are QS’s global surveys of academics and employers, which are used to assess institutions’ international reputation in each subject. The second two indicators assess research impact, based on research citations per paper and h-index in the relevant subject. These are sourced from Elsevier’s Scopus database, the world’s most comprehensive research citations database.

The engineering – mining and mineral field has 51 entries and the top tier is dominated by US, Australian and Canadian universities

What sets QS apart from similar rankings of educational institutions is a fourth component of the ranking – employer reputation. A survey of more than 40,000 employers ranks schools according to the quality of recruits.

The mineral and mining engineering ranking was introduced for the first time ever last year.

Top rated Colorado School of Mines, established in 1859, is placed well above the competition with a score of above 90.

Established in 1986 Curtin University in Western Australia's mining faculty shot up the rankings from 19th to second place ahead of Queensland University which also moved up seven places in the rankings.

Penn State ranked fourth and the University of New South Wales was fifth. McGill University was the highest ranked Canadian university, placing sixth in the poll.
