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

The Guide was published on June 7, 2006 and within the subject tables lists twenty Chemical Engineering departments. The top three are

  1. Cambridge,   100%
  2. Imperial College,   98.4%
  3. Birmingham,   94.2%

The overall score combines results for research quality, entry standards and the proportion of graduates in graduate jobs or further study.

In the Times list of top 100 universities, Cambridge came second, beaten once again by Oxford. However, Cambridge came top in 35 out of 44 subject tables in which it appeared, compared with just 8 out of 34 for Oxford.
