Since 2010 when it launched a graduate program in advanced computing for international students, the Department of Computer Science and Technology has developed a curriculum system including 14 courses taught in English, which was nominated by Forbes as one of the world’s top ten graduate programs in artificial intelligence and data science in 2020.
Since 2021, the Department has risen to the difficulties in teaching caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, developed more scenarios for teaching, launched quality courses to universities overseas, and attracted more than ten students from universities overseas to its courses through hybrid teaching. Based on the plans and visions of the Ministry of Education and the University, the Department plans to further integrate hybrid classrooms.
