UCF researchers join elite schools in national ranking

It is hard not to notice all of the research happening at UCF. People outside of the university will now know what many students, professors and alumni already do – UCF is a top school for research.

The Carnegie Foundation for Teaching and Learning listed UCF among the nation’s top research institutions in an analysis released earlier this week.

The Foundation classified UCF as a university with “very high research activity.” Other schools that fit the Foundation’s criteria are Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Johns Hopkins and Stanford. The analysis doesn’t rank each university.

In the 2009-2010 academic year, UCF researchers were awarded $133.3 million in external funding for their research projects. In the same year the university received $75.8 million in federal funding. In addition, 41 UCF researchers earned $1 million or more in grants.
