hi there my name is Sam Clark and welcome to crimson education today we're gonna be talking about the top ten universities for computer science in the world these rankings are based on the Q s rankings of colleges and universities which are based on such factors as .
Academic reputation employer reputation citations per professor and the h-index if you want to learn a bit more about that you can go to Q s is website but the point being that these are based on it in the index of a number of factors and are by no means necessarily the definitive rating of what the best computer science schools are in the .
World so if you want to learn more about what the best computer science school for you might be please click the link below for a free academic consultation with one of our academic experts according to Oxford University you could say a way better than I could computer science is all about learning and understanding the mathematical .
Scientific and engineering principles underlying every kind of computing system from mobile phones in the Internet via systems that interpret natural language to the supercomputers the forecast tomorrow's weather or simulate the effects of disease on the human heart well we're gonna be talking about is what the best universities in .
The world are to learn computer science both at a practical level and also intellectually and theoretically let's do it number 10 on our list is the National University of Singapore or NUS the NUS School of Computing was founded out of the nan yang university department of computer sciences which started in 1975 and it was the first of .
Its kind in Singapore and still the best in Singapore and us doesn't just focus on giving its students the practical skills for computer science for data management that sort of thing academically they're also really really big on connecting their students with entrepreneurial opportunities and mentorship a big example of this is .

Also has a lot of connections to big industry players such as IBM Google Microsoft and is number eight on our list is a school that I'm probably not going to pronounce entirely correctly because I haven't taken French this high school EPFL D Ecole Polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland EPFL is an institute that focuses on the .
Natural Sciences and engineering so naturally it has a lot of great ties for computer science students to collaborate with other students to really benefit the sciences one of the biggest draws to EPFL isn't just its curriculum and fantastic faculty in the computer science department but also its internship program which connects its .
Computer science students to places such as Google Facebook Microsoft who recruit directly on campus and work with EPFL to create fantastic internship opportunities for their students courses at EPFL can be taught in French and English they highly recommend that you know both languages if you're gonna go there I won't go there for many reasons .
One is that I can't speak French the others that I don't know computer science number 7 on our list is Harvard in Cambridge Massachusetts Harvard is home to one of the most famous computer science courses in the world and known as cs50 introduction to computer science which is not only taught at Harvard and it's world-famous Sanders theater but is .
Also taught online now to thousands of students all around the world you might be able to take those classes yourself a very exciting development Harvard is that in 2014 the university announced that it was going to expand as computer science faculty by 50% thanks to an enormous donation by Steve Ballmer who you might know from his work in being .
The Microsoft CEO ladies and gentlemen Harvard computer science students can know that they are at the forefront of research opportunities and artificial intelligence computational linguistics data management systems and more .
Especially through collaborations at computer science department has with such institutes as the Center for Research on computation in society the Institute for applied computational science in the Berkman Center for Internet and Society number six on our list is the University of Oxford whose computer science program only has about .
A hundred and sixty undergraduates and has a new degree in computer science and philosophy which includes an even smaller cohort of students in addition to Oxford's groundbreaking work at the intersection of computer science and philosophy they also have a lot of practical partnerships with many institutions both on the research side .
And on the internship side this includes end Intel Microsoft as well as government and public funded institutions within the United Kingdom including the Department of Trade and Industry and the National Health Service so if you're studying computer science at Oxford you can guarantee that you'll be working with major companies or with .
The government of the UK itself on groundbreaking computer science work number five is the University of Cambridge and I'm gonna start with this one with a little plug if you want to watch a day in the life of a Cambridge computer science student watch a day in the life cambridge computer science student on our channel featuring a .
Fantastic student named richard know who's done a lot of work in artificial intelligence and works now with Google Cambridge was one of the first pioneers in the actual study of computer science and continues to be at the helm leading the best research in the world on him this might not be apparent from the beautiful gothic buildings around .
Cambridge but Cambridge is right now in an area known as the silicon fen sort of like Silicon Valley but more British there's more than 1,000 specialised computing and advanced technology companies that are sprouting up in the Cambridge area which means a huge opportunity for computer science students at Cambridge to work with those .
New developing CS companies Cambridge not only has a huge emphasis on practical programming skills but also likes to steer its students towards the underlying theories in business law government and economics and they love having their students to talk about how those theories play out in computer science like all other courses at .
Cambridge you're of you Asian if you're studying computer science at Cambridge will be heavily weighted towards assessments and papers taken at the end of term number four on our list is the University of California at Berkeley which is just a short distance from Silicon Valley the electrical engineering and computer .
Science department at UC Berkeley offers two distinct degree options for students interested in computer science you can either get a bachelor's I ins offered by the college of engineering or a Bachelor of the Arts in computer science would should be offered by the College of Letters and science while the faculty and courses at UC Berkeley are some of .
The best in the world perhaps one of the biggest benefits of studying at Berkeley is its close proximity to Silicon Valley a lot of UC Berkeley graduates in computer science would go directly into Silicon Valley or even work in Silicon Valley for major tech companies at the same time as they're studying at Berkeley number three on our list is .
Carnegie Mellon University specifically their school of computer science a lot of exciting work is going on right now a Carnegie Mellon University which offers fantastic programs for its computer science students and groundbreaking research and a great example of this is a brand new degree at the CMU school of computer science which is aimed .
Specifically at preparing researchers for a I directed experimentation it's called the Master of Science and automated science biological experimentation and it's going to be beginning in fall of 2019 CMU places a huge emphasis on interdisciplinary majors such as computer science and the arts and music .
And technology number two on our list is Stanford University which is located in Palo Alto near the heart of Silicon Valley that's right Silicon Valley you can walk from Stanford to Google I know I said that UC Berkeley was close to the heart of Silicon Valley but Stanford is – they're both fantastic schools with some of the .
Best computer science programs in the world located – the biggest most exciting tech companies in the world Stanford scream Peter science department is housed within its Department of engineering and is ten different tracks including artificial intelligence human-computer interaction and bio computation similar to some of the other .
Universities I've discussed today Stanford places a huge emphasis on interdisciplinary work making sure that computer science students are working with other students in areas such as linguistics genetics medicine engineering and manufacturing and number one on our list is a huge shocker the Massachusetts Institute of .
Technology MIT the electrical engineering and computer science department at MIT is the largest department at MIT and starting salaries for students graduating with a bachelor's degree in computer science from MIT are well over $100,000 mit is electrical engineering the computer science program offers five .
Undergraduate degrees at MIT as well as a master's in engineering which is available to undergrads they also recently changed their undergrad degree programs in order to give students more flexibility so they could pursue even more of their own interests mit is the cream of the crop so that has been the top 10 computer science universities in .
