University of Maryland Robotics is now ranked #10 in the US by the website csrankings.org. Previously, UMD was ranked #11; this new 2023 ranking means the university has cracked the “top 10.”

CSRankings is a metrics-based ranking of top computer science institutions around the world and is popular in the broad CS and AI community. The model identifies institutions and faculty actively engaged in research across various areas of computer science based on the number of publications by faculty that have appeared at the most selective computer science conferences. Csrankings.org has a FAQ page that explains the site’s methodology, including which research areas it covers and on which conferences it bases its rankings.

“The top-10 classification puts us in a different cluster,” Distinguished Professor Dinesh Manocha said. “It directly impacts our student enrollment, faculty candidates and donors.”
