Founded in 1973, the School of Computer Science affiliated to Huazhong University of Science and Technology is a key school included in the national "211 Project" and "985 Project" (“211Project ” and "985 Project" aiming to support leading Universities under Ministry of Education). The school always insists to create synergy between theoretical research and engineering development, integrate scientific research and talent cultivation. And a number of key laboratories and industry leaders have been built as our practice base. After more than 40 years of construction and development, they have become important base for technology innovation and entrepreneurship and from where come out a big number of professional personnel in computer field.
We attaches great importance to undergraduate education, adhering to “system-oriented, keep applications in mind” and actively engaging in the program of National Teaching Quality and Teaching Reform in Undergraduate education. “Computer Science and Technology” and “information security” are two strong and specialized majors developed on national level. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a newly- established major based on the strategy of promoting emerging industry initiated by Hubei Provincial government. In addition, a national level teaching team, a provincial teaching team, three national fine courses and four sharing courses of national fine resources have been developed so far. We put emphasis on collaboration between school and enterprise by partnering with some well-known domestic and foreign enterprises including Intel, IBM, Microsoft, Baidu, Sohu, Tencent, Alibaba, ZTE to set up courses and help students to form innovation communities jointly.
We focus on the training of innovative professionals and has launched the "the Advanced Class (here-in-after called “ACM Class”) for Computer Science and Technology and the “Excellence Engineering Class”, brought in the core curriculum system of the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). We invite John E. Hopcroft, the owner of Turing Award, the academician of National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering, to assist in the development of international courses. In the meantime, we regularly invite famous scholars to deliver lectures on the forefront of computer science, through which we guide our students to carry out research and practice and make scientific and technological innovation, and cultivate outstanding professionals with spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and global vision.
