Russia’s Lomonosv Moscow State University and Novosibirsk State University remain at 1st and 2nd place as yet another one of the nation’s universities, Saint-Petersburg State University, takes the 3rd spot in the region, pushing back Czech Republic’s Charles University in Prague and Estonia’s University of Tartu.
Remarkably, most countries within the top 50 have had a good, if not great year- in particular Turkey and Kazakhstan. Bogazici Universitesi jumped into the top 10 this year at 9th place, from 17th place in 2015. Istanbul Technical University also rises in rank from 30th to 23rd place; although Istanbul University falls from 17th place to 34th place in 2016. Al-Farabi Kazakh National University makes an improvement high into the top 20 as well, at 11th place, while Kazakh National Technical University is a new entry within the top 50.
Hungary sees both a loss and gain as Eotvos Lorand University falls to 27th place from 16th, and Budapest University of Technology and Economics increases its rank to 22nd place from 32nd last year. Likewise, Warsaw University of Technology in Poland ranks within the top 20 at 18th place, six places up from 2015.
