The STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) branches have positioned themselves as the safest and most successful disciplines for those who are thinking about their future career. That is why, with less than a month to go before the Selectividad and the subsequent decision to choose a university, the Knowledge and Development Foundation (CYD) has presented the results of the sixth edition of the CYD Ranking, which analyses and scores the performance of 73 of the 81 centres in Spain. Tecnun-The University of Navarra occupies the top positions in the field of Engineering. Especially in the Electrical, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering degrees.

As is the case every year, the ranking does not attempt to establish a standard ranking, but identifies up to three levels of performance in 23 areas of knowledge. Thus, each student, university or company can evaluate the aspects they value most in each campus: teaching and learning are not the same as research or international orientation. Of the total number of centres analysed, 48 are public and 25 are private.

According to Ángela Mediavilla, coordinator of the report, "the 11 areas on which this edition focuses provide very complete information on the universities that offer bachelor's or master's degrees in these scientific and technological fields". Engineering is present in more than 78% of universities, and science is taught on 83% of campuses. The OECD, among others, warned last month of the need for countries to take these fields seriously if they really want to contribute to the employability and growth of their regions.

Outside the field of STEM, and taking into account the aforementioned indicators, the universities that perform best are, in this order, the Autonomous University of Barcelona, the Autonomous University of Madrid and the University of Navarra.
