Ratings of CS graduate programs

Date: 30 Sep 1994

The following is some different rankings of CS graduate program (in US).
Hope it will help.

It is pretty well accepted these days that Gourmann’s reports are
based upon weak statistics. Even the schools that score high in the
Gourmann report do not quote from it for fear of referencing
something that has no rigorous backing.

The only ranking that comes close is the one by U.S. News and World
Report. At least theirs is based upon a well-defined set of
criteria. Granted, their criteria are biased towards large
departments, since total dollars are used to measure research
funding, rather than dollars per faculty. Thus, you may wish to
increase the ranking of small departments [such as the one at Johns
Hopkins ;-)].

Anyway, here are the top 30 or so departments in Computer Science
based upon the U.S. News and World Reports latest survey:

1. Stanford
1. UC Berkeley
1. MIT
1. CMU
5. Cornell
6. U. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
7. U. of Washington
8. U. of Texas, Austin
8. U of Wisconsin, Madison
10. Cal. Tech.
10. Princeton
12. UCLA
12. U. of Maryland
12. Brown U.
12. Purdue U.
16. Yale
16. U. of Michigan
18. Harvard
18. Rice
18. Columbia
18. U. Mass., Amherst
22. Georgia Tech.
22. U. of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
24. U. Penn.
25. U. of Arizona
25. U. of Utah
25. Duke
25. New York Univ.
