In the 2014 report, TU Delft rose from the 51-60 range to claim a spot in the prestigious Top 50, coming in at number 42.
This makes TU Delft the highest-ranked university in the Netherlands and among the top three technological institutes in Europe.
While the city of Delft boasts the only institution to make the Top 50, three other Dutch cities have universities within the Top 100: Amsterdam, Leiden and Utrecht.
This year, the University of Amsterdam made the 71-80 range, an increase from its 2013 spot in the 81-90 group. (Schools outside of the Top 50 do not receive a specific ranking, but are placed within a range.)
Utrecht University also made the 81-90 category, just as it did last year.
Leiden University was the one Dutch institution to lose ground, dropping from 61-70 to 81-90. However, Leiden ranked highest among the Dutch institutions in the related World University Rankings 2013-2014 list this past autumn, reaching number 67. More information visit our page Universities.
