A new study ranks the University of California, San Diego, as the 20th best university in the world, according to the Center for World University Ranking (CWUR) Web site.
“What we do at UC San Diego changes the world by spurring economic growth and innovations that have a positive impact on our region and the world,” Khosla went on to say in the statement.
According to its Web site, the CWUR uses seven criteria in its ranking: Publications, influence, citations, patents, faculty, alumni employment and educational awards won.
Several other California universities made the Top 20: Stanford University (#2), University of California, Berkley (#7), California Institute of Technology (#11) and the University of California, Los Angeles (#16.) Harvard University came in first.
