Technical universities in Germany ranking
Cambridge’s near-blanket presence in the top ten indicates that, perhaps more than any other institution, it can claim to be world-class in nearly every major area of academic research. Yet Harvard and MIT have more departments that are truly world leading.
The view from employers
While US institutions remain preeminent for research, the rankings suggest that graduates from the UK’s two most famous institutions are more highly regarded than their Ivy League rivals by the world’s employers.
Employers regard Cambridge graduates as the world’s best in 13 of the 30 subjects, while Oxford ties with Harvard on seven, ahead of London School of Economics (LSE), University of Tokyo and UC Davis, top in one subject each.
The US/UK monopoly extends to nearly two-thirds of the elite positions – 397 of the 600 top-20 spots across the 30 disciplines. Yet there is plenty of evidence in these rankings of world-class departments outside of this traditional power cluster.
Asia excels in engineering
The rankings feature several notable performances from Asian universities, particularly in the hotly contested areas of science, engineering and technology.
Nerdy euro male at jamaican dancehall party? :-]
/* I'm posting in this section because i think you guys have 'experience' in this typa things */
I have a urge to attend a jamaican dancehall party in nyc for the lulz :-D and just for the sake of it but the thing is
I'm a pretty 'white' student from Germany, studying physics and engineering in one of the universities here. I look *very* nerdy but good enough to attract girls.
I can't dance (unless under influence of psychotropic substances :-] )
And generally i would be considered an antithesis of a cool black guy
OK - This is about that dammed jew EJS:
Both of Sternglass' parents were Jewish physicians. The Sternglass family left Germany in 1938, when Ernest was fourteen. He completed high school at the age of sixteen, then entered Cornell, registering for an engineering program. His family's financial troubles forced him to leave school for a year; by the time he returned to Cornell, the US had entered World War II. Sternglass volunteered for the navy. He was about to ship out when the atomic bomb was detonated over Hiroshima.
After the war, Sternglass married. In Washington, D.C. he worked as a civilian employee at the Naval Ordinance Laboratory, which researched military weapons
