For the third time in as many years, McMaster has been named Canada’s most research-intensive university in the annual ranking of the country’s Top 50 Research Universities.

With a total sponsored research income of $391.6 million – up nearly $12 million from last year, McMaster also maintained its first-place ranking in corporate research income, according to the 2019 Research Infosource rankings released today.

Research intensity measures research dollars per faculty member and, on average, McMaster researchers earned $439,500 – more than double the national average.  The university also placed first among its peers for graduate student research intensity, averaging $84,000 per graduate student and, again, well over the national average.
