    Higher mounted engines are less prone to FOD (foreign object debris). And normally the jetblast from the engine is of smaller concern since it will pass over a normal human body when taxing.

    Besides from that I dont think there is any. But they have a lot of disadvantages like more prone to clear ice breaking off from the wings etc.

    Engines over the wing and engines under the wing

    Is there any practical use in locating engines above the wing?
