Other Texas Universities that made the list are the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas at #48, Rice University at #91 and Texas A&M University at #93.

The list was based on a number of criteria including: the number of alumni and staff members who have won Nobel Prizes & field medals; the number of researchers chosen by Thomas Scientific; the number of published articles in journals; and performance in relation to the university’s size.
