Top University 2002

Cambridge University is at the top of The Times Good University Guide in Chemical Engineering 

The Guide was published on May 8, 2002 and lists 20 Chemical Engineering departments. The top three are

  1. Cambridge,   100%
  2. Imperial College,   99.6%
  3. UMIST,   94.4%

The overall scores are made up from the Teaching Quality Assessment (TQA) where Cambridge has the best score of 23 out of a possible 24, Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) where Cambridge is rated 5 and the A level score from the average of new students.

The Guardian also ranks Cambridge's Chemical Engineering department as number 1, but places UMIST second and Loughborough third with Imperial slipping down to fourth place.

  1. Cambridge,   88.18%
  2. UMIST,   83.63%.
  3. Loughborough,   83.18%

The Guardian uses similar criteria to The Times, but also includes a "Value added score".

The Daily Telegraph league table of Universities, published on 27 July 2002, shows Cambridge at the top. The table is based on official judgements of the quality of each department, the effectiveness of the management and the standard of the facilities. The top five were Cambridge, York, LSE, Oxford and Imperial.
