In a just-released ranking of Chemical Engineering Departments worldwide, we have been ranked No 7 in the US and No 16 in the World. This ranking is mainly based on an evaluation of the publications and citations to the works coming out of our Department and it is consistent with our leading position in similar data-based rankings (No 11 in the US in the 2016 QS World University ranking). Congratulations to our students, post-doctoral researchers, and faculty.
