In the category of research, KIT is ranked in the top group for a number of indicators by the “EU-Multirank” ranking scheme funded by the EU Commission. Among these indicators are the number of scientific publications, third-party funds acquired, and the number of post-docs. In the category of knowledge transfer, KIT is given excellent marks for patents and startups among others. 

Individual subjects also reach very good results for a number of indicators. KIT’s electrical engineering and information technology reaches the top group for seven, KIT’s informatics for six, and mechanical engineering for five indicators. KIT also reaches top results in international affairs as regards the number of employees from abroad and the number of publications made together with partners from abroad. In a survey, the students of KIT rated the learning experience to be good in all subjects.

U-Multirank wishes to cover the variety of universities worldwide by a variety of criteria. The underlying data were partly supplied by the universities and partly taken from surveys of students and searches in publication and patent databases.
