The 2016 QS World University Rankings include 42 disciplines divided into five major areas: arts and humanities; engineering and technology; life sciences and medicine; natural sciences; and social sciences and management. Each discipline is evaluated on four indicators: academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per paper, and H-index. Each indicator is weighted in accordance with the conditions specific to the disciple. For example, citation rates are generally higher in medicine, and the natural and life sciences than in the arts and humanities; and the electrical engineering field gives particular importance to employer reputation.
