Ranking C-Schools by ASC Research Publications

4August2007

I came across an article entitled, “Continuing the Ranking Game: Using ASC Publication as One Criteria for the Ranking of C-schools” by two Texas A&M Professors, Kenneth C. Williamson III, Ph.D. and Richard A. Burt, MRICS, Ph.D.

The article offers a methodology to rank college construction programs based on the number of research publications produced by the program. Refer to the article to see how your construction program fared in rankings.

“Continuing the Ranking Game: Using ASC Publication as One Criteria for the Ranking of C-schools”

My initial ranking system (C-Schoolblog Rankings) was based on a simple ratio of the number of recruiters at a school (demand) versus the number of students that graduate from a program each year (supply). The ranking system in the article above uses a completely different ranking methodology, which may be a better indicator of the quality of professors and graduate students or at least their dedication to scholarly research to positively effect the construction industry.

    Michael,
    I’m doing some research on top construction management schools. I came across the methodology put forth by professor’s Williamson and Burt. After doing some searching I came across your blog. Unfortunately, the link to your rankings will not open. Can you provide it to me? If not, do you know of anyone else who has completed a ranking using this system? I would appreciate any help.
