Data structure is basically the organization, storage and management format of data in computer science. The universities that are good with their computer science should be your target here. Like if you are targeting the top colleges, I would suggest mostly USA and Canadian universities, because they are good with computer science courses.

I have some good university names for good data structures in computer science programs. I have been associated with international students that target technical courses in abroad countries. Through that experience I get to know the real good universities that are  not just ranked well but actually offer good courses in your interested fields.

#1.Carnegie Mellon University
#2. University of California, Berkeley (UCB)

Carnegie Mellon University has always been one of the best universities for computer science courses. Even ranked above universities like MIT sometimes, you can expect top tier cs programs with good data structure from this institute. UC Berkeley on the other hand is the most specialized university in the USA. Often considered one of the top universities there, you can find almost all the best courses here.

#3. University of Waterloo
#4. University of British Columbia (UBC)

But just in case you do not like the USA, there are Canadian universities too. Names like Waterloo and British Columbia are the first ones that come into mind for this. Basically the University of Waterloo is one of the biggest universities in Canada. And UBC is like the best university for CS and tech courses. Computer science, tech, IT and engineering students choose UBC in Canada as the first choice.

#5. National University of Singapore (NUS)

One last option can be NUS too from Singapore. I don't know if you are familiar but few Singaporean universities are very popular for technical courses. When you check rankings by QS, THE or say Financial Times, you will see NUS and Nanyang Technological University as one of the very best ones globally. Even many times ranking under top #10. If you are a fan of living in a highly developed country, I'm telling you, NUS is the best for computer science courses.

Data structure is a very niche area in CS. Thus, I would suggest looking for your options carefully.
