The School of Computer was established in 2012, whose education history dated back to Computer Software Program in Department of Mathematics in 1984. In 1992, the Department of Computer Science was established independently and renamed to School of Computer in 2012. After 20 years’ hard work and united efforts from all faculty members and students, the School of Computer has successfully developed into an academically sturdy and distinctive polytechnic college with full range of majors. At present, there are five departments – “Computer Sciences”, “Computer Engineering”, “Computer Software”, “Computer Application” and “Public Computer”, as well as three undergraduate programs – Computer Science & Technology, Software Engineering and Internet of Things in the college. Among which, Computer Science & Technology program was elected as the 2012 Undergraduate Program for Cultivating Strategic New (Pillar) Industry Talents in Hubei Provincial General Institutions of Higher Education. The college is entitled to confer Master Degree of Engineering in respectively Computer Technology and Software Engineering; it is also entitled to confer first class discipline Doctor Degree of Management Science and Engineering.
