When choosing an educational institution, entrants and their parents have to analyze many different aspects of university activities. Often the external attractiveness of the educational institution, the courtesy of the staff, the impressions of acquaintances, the convenient location, and transport connections help to determine the place of study. However, the decisive role in choosing a specialty that can be taught in several universities, even in one city, is played by the ratings of HEIs of Ukraine, compiled by professional and, in particular, international experts.
According to scientometric indicators of the Scopus 2021 rating database, SHEI USUCT ranks 16th among 190 free economic zones of Ukraine and 3rd place in the city of Dnipro, second only to the classical national universities of Ukraine, which unite much larger teams of scientists! The Scopus database contains more than 50 million abstracts and is a tool for tracking citations of articles published in scientific journals around the world.
In the international scientometric rating SCImago 2021, our University took 2nd place among Ukrainian universities and is the best university in Dnipro, and also entered the TOP-50 universities of Central and Eastern Europe (42nd place).
Only those universities that overcame the entry barrier (at least 100 scientific papers of any type indexed in Scopus in the 5 years preceding the year of publication of the ranking) participated in the ranking.
The ranking used data exclusively from independent sources: the Scopus bibliometric database, the Patstat international patent database, and webometric databases.
This rating is a recognition of the high scientific potential and fruitful work of SHEI USUCT specialists.
