TU Delft research categories

Based on the analysis provided by Web of Science indexing service we have extracted the ranking of various research categories (known as Web of Science Categories) of TU Delft publications for three different time periods:

  • 1999-2004
  • 2005-2010
  • 2011-2016

The following table shows the top 50 research categories of TU Delft publications in the recent years. For each research category, the rankings in three different time periods are shown. The green arrows are added when a research category has a better ranking in the most recent time period compared to the oldest one.
