According to the ranking of the best institutions in the field of computer science, researchers from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of CTU and the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of CTU are among the European leaders in selected fields. In the field of Computer Vision, researchers from the CTU Faculty of Electrical Engineering and the CIIRC rank among the top five European institutes in the evaluation of scientific results in the period 2018 to 2023.

Computer scientists from these two CTU units also achieve excellent results in the field of robotics, where they are ranked seventh in Europe. They are also among the best European universities in Economics & Computation, where they are ranked 16th, and in Artificial Intelligence, where they are ranked 42nd.

CSRankings is a ranking of the best institutions in computer science worldwide based on an exact evaluation of publications in top scientific journals.

CTU's position in the CSRankings for the period 2018 - 2023 (Europe)

  • Computer Vision #5
  • Robotics #7
  • Economics & Computation #16
  • Artificial Intelligence #42

Based on internationally recognized comparisons, FEL CTU and CIIRC CTU have long been the best institutions in the Czech Republic in the field of computer science and robotics; no other scientific institution from the Czech Republic has achieved a top ten ranking in CSRankings.

Prof. Matas is the highest ranked computer scientist from the Czech Republic

According to's international ranking, which evaluates the success of computer scientists based on their H-index, citations and the number of papers collected by 21 December 2022, the top-ranked Czech computer scientist is prof. The success of CTU is underlined by the fact that it has three representatives among the first four Czech scientists - dr. Josef Šivic (CIIRC CTU) is the second and doc. Tomáš Pajdla (CIIRC CTU and FEL CTU) is fourth. Dr. Tomáš Mikolov (CIIRC CTU) is seventh and Dr. Torsten Sattler (CIIRC CTU and FEL CTU) is tenth. Prof. Ondřej Chum (FEL CTU) and Dr. Josef Urban (CIIRC CTU) are in the second ten in fourteenth and seventeenth place, respectively.
