For the third year in a row, QS World University Rankings has ranked UBC Civil Engineering as the top civil engineering department in Canada. Regarded as one of the three most influential and widely observed university measures, the rankings by British company Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) are based on four measures: QS’s global surveys of academics and employers, designed to assess the international reputation of a university by subject; research citations per paper; and h-index (a measurement of the productivity and impact of publications). In addition to being first in Canada, UBC Civil Engineering was ranked 30th worldwide.
