Brief Introduction of Discipline

The Southeast University discipline Computer Science & Technology dates from the major Computing Technology & Device founded in 1960 and was authorized to confer the master's and doctor’s degrees of Computer Application Technology in 1979 and 1990, respectively. The discipline was authorized to set up the position of the Ministry of Education Changjiang Scholars Distinguished Professor in 1999. The post-doctoral station for the first-class discipline Computer Science & Technology was established in 2000. It was authorized to confer the doctor's degree of the first-class discipline Computer Science & Technology in 2003. Now it has doctor's degree programs in four second-class disciplines including Computer system Architecture, Computer Software and Theory, Computer Application Technology and Image Processing & Scientific Visualization, among which, Computer Application Technology is the national key discipline and Computer Software and Theory is the key discipline in Jiang Su Province.
