International recognition

In 2020, the ENSCR entered the Shanghai international ranking for the first time. This is a ranking of the world’s leading universities compiled annually by researchers from Shanghai Jiao-tong University in China. The institutions are classified according to a single index calculated from six quantitative criteria, in particular the number of researchers among those who are most cited and a productivity criterion related to the size of the teaching staff. In this 2020 ranking, 34 French establishments were distinguished. The ENSCR was classified in the “Chemical Engineering” theme alongside the Universities of Aix-Marseille, Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Poitiers… At the top of this category, we find MIT and Stanford University.
