Top 10 universities by category


The Small Times university survey included 26 questions about funding, facilities, patenting, company formation, collaborations with industry, research, publishing, and micro and nano-specific courses and degree programs. It also gave respondents an opportunity to state which of their peer institutions they thought were leaders in micro and nanotech research and commercialization.

Here are the results, based on responses from 50 universities. Data from the responses were divided into categories and analyzed to determine the top 10 universities for each category. Categories are research, education, facilities, industrial outreach and commercialization. The peer rankings covered micro research, nano research, micro commercialization and nano commercialization.

Note that some universities made the peer rankings but do not appear elsewhere. Those universities did not respond to the survey or provided incomplete responses.
