World University Rankings 2016-2017 by subject: results announced

Eight subject rankings reveal elite group of 14 US and European universities thriving across disciplines.

Expertise across a broad range of disciplines – rather than exceptional performance in just a few – is key to success in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, THE‘s latest subject rankings suggest.
Just 14 different universities make the top five of the eight subject rankings published this week, which cover arts and humanities; business and economics; clinical, pre-clinical and health; computer science; engineering and technology; life sciences; physical sciences; and social sciences. Both computer science and business and economics are new subject rankings for 2016-17.
Only one of the universities in this eminent group is outside the US and the UK: Switzerland’s ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich.
The other institutions are Stanford University,Yale University, the University of Chicago,Harvard UniversityPrinceton University,Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyCalifornia Institute of TechnologyGeorgia Institute of Technology and the University of California, Berkeley in the US, and the University of Oxford,University of CambridgeImperial College London and University College London in the UK.
All these universities appear in the top 33 places of the THE World University Rankings 2016-2017published last week. The University of Oxford, which became the first UK university to top the table, makes the top five in seven of the subject rankings – more than any other institution – but is number one in only the clinical, pre-clinical and health list.
