    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.

    “This is a great honor,” UCSD Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla said in a statement from the university.

    “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.
