Revision:adminDate:2018/10/09


In 1984, the Computer Software Program was set up in Department of Mathematics. In 1992, the Department of Computer Science was established independently. In 2012, the School of Computer was formally established. So far, the school hasdeveloped into an engineering school with complete majors, distinctive characteristics and strong discipline strength. The school has 4 undergraduate majors, including computer science and technology, software engineering, Internet of things engineering and information security. Additionally, computer science and technology major has been selectedas one of the undergraduate programs of the Talent Cultivation Plan for the Strategic Emerging (Pillar) Industries of Regular Institutions of Higher Education in Hubei Province and short-listed for the “Collaborative Education Program for Jingchu’s Excellent Engineers” of Regular Institutions of Higher Education in Hubei Province, and has been approved as the major with lessons fully taught in English. As one of the Hubei provincial key disciplines, computer science and technology discipline ranked at the top 40% of the disciplines evaluated in The Fourth Round of National Discipline Evaluation, and now it has gotten authorization of granting master’s degree in computer science and technology discipline (first-grade discipline) computer technology discipline and software engineering discipline. The school could recruit doctoral students majoring in “educational information technology”, “statistics”, etc. Currently the school has 82 faculty members, including 16 professors, 29 associate professors and 8 doctoral tutors.

On the basis of many research platforms, i.e., National Engineering Laboratory for Educational Big Data, National Engineering Research Center for E-Learning, Key Laboratory of Adolescent Cyber psychology and Behavior, The Center of the National Language Resources Monitor and Research, the school has established its distinctive features in several research orientations such as computer application, computer network and information security, etc., and has undertaken a great number of research projects at both national and provincial level, including key research projects supported by National Natural Science Foundation, major projects supported by National Social Science Foundation, projects of National Science and Technology Support Program, National Natural Science Foundation and National Social Science Foundation. The school has also published manyhigh-level research papers in international authoritative conferences and journals in the field of computer science.

Furthermore,school has established stable and in-depth cooperation with a number of prestigious foreign universities, and has successfully held many influential international academic conferences. Many teachers of the school are sent to foreign famous universities to serve as visiting scholars every year, and more than half of the teachers have the experience of studying abroad. Excellent students will be arranged to overseas first-class universities for exchange learning or communicative visiting every semester, while some students will be organized to participate in the education exchange activities in Hong Kong every summer. In recent years, many excellent graduates have been accepted as graduate students by prestigious universities in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries.

With solid professional knowledge, good scientific research capacity and practical capacity, the students cultivated by the school have won national silver award and provincial gold award in the 1stChina College Students’ “Internet +” Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, national bronze award and provincial gold award in the 3rdChina College Students’ “Internet +” Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition; two gold awards, five silver awards and 10 bronze awards in ACM International Collegiate Programming Contests (Asia) in the past three years; 7 first prizes in the China Robot Competition, including 1 championship, 1 runner-up and 2 second runner-ups as well as more than 200 awards in major competitions like the “Challenge Cup” National Undergraduate Curricular Academic Science and Technology Contest, China College Students’ Entrepreneurship Competition, the China Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling, the National College Competition on Internet of Things, the China Computer Design Contest for College Students, the “Lanqiao Cup” National Software and Information Technology Talents Competition, the National English Competition for College Students, etc. With high employment rate and good employment quality, the graduates of our school are widely praised by employers.
