In 1994, the College of Computer Science and Technology was authorized to give master’s degree to students in the aspect of Applied Computer Technology. In the same year, it was identified as a key Project by Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council.
The College of Computer Science and Technology has 4 undergraduate degree projects, which are: Computer Science,Software Engineering, Network Engineering and Multimedia Technology. It need to be pointed out, that since 2014,the college began to maintain 2 special English teaching majors, which are Computer Science and Software Engineering. Lectures in both majors are taught in English. The college also provides two First-Class Postgraduate Degree Projects,which are Computer Science Major and Software Engineering Major, one Second-Class Postgraduate Degree Project, which is Pattern Recognition and AI System, and one Master of Engineering Project in the aspect of Computer Technology.Among all those Postgraduate projects, Computer Science and Software Engineering are two Key discipline Projects,which are identified by Fujian Province.
Developing for over 35 years, the college of Computer Science and technology forms four stable academic direction, which are Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, Intelligent Data Management and Application, Software Engineering and Computer Integrated Manufacturing System, and Network and Multimedia Technology.
The College has 93 teaching staffs. 76 of them are full time teachers. 11 out of 72, are professors.23 out of 72, have received associated professor’s title. 1 Minjiang Scholar Professor,2 Minjiang Visiting Professors also work for the college.
In 2016, the College took in approximately 300 undergraduate students and 40 postgraduate students.Now, totally, it has almost 1500 students that registered in the College of Computer Science & Technology,including approximately 1300 undergraduate and 100 postgraduate students, plus 150 Master of Engineering Project students.
In the aspect of science research and technology development, during the period of recent 4 years,the college achieved 24 National Scientific Research Projects,30 Provincial or Ministerial Level Scientific Research Projects,15 Prefectural Level Scientific Research Projects and 30 Horizontal Scientific Research Projects; approximately 400 Academic Papers were published out;a quarter of them were collected by EI & SCI; 6 patents were awarded; 11 books or teaching materials were published.
In order to satisfy the societies’ human resource requirements of rapid development in information technology fields,the college is focusing on developing solid theoretical foundation, broad knowledge, the quality of comprehensive,strong practical ability of high-level application-oriented talents. 12 undergraduate students’science researching and practicing bases is on functional in recent years. And at the same time, Undergraduate Student Supervisor System, Pre-employment Plan are actively promoted and implemented. Thus, in the past 2 years,college students won lots of “First Price” in several computer design competitions, such as: China computer design competition, the "Challenge Cup" competition Extracurricular academic works, Fujian software design contest and many other events. Students also took part in ACM, and won good rewards.
The College is cooperating with famous domestic and foreign universities and research organizations at all possible fields.High level academic exchange activities are held each year. Chinese or oversea experts are invited to the college to give academic reports. All the actions are introduced to students to open their sights and provided excellent learning environment for student.
