The Times Higher Education (THE), is based in the UK and used, until 2014, the Thomson Reuters bibliometric datasets. In 2015,  Elsevier Scopus started to be its main sources and the information was collected directly from HEIs. This ranking is also organized ‘By Subject’, and the results concern Engineering and Technology, which measure the following indicators (relative weight): Citations (27.5%), Industry Income (5%), International Outlook (7.5%), Research (30%) and Teaching (30%).

This subject aggregates the areas of General Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering and Chemical Engineering.
