School of Computer Science and Engineering
Southeast University



The School of Computer Science and Engineering, College of Software Engineering, Southeast University, formerly known as the Department of Calculating Apparatus and Technology, was established in 1960. The Department of Calculating Apparatus and Technology developed the first digital integral machine in China and has applied it in national defense and industrial automation with fruitful achievements. The School began offering full time courses leading to the awards of Bachelor degrees, Master degrees and Doctorate degrees in 1960, 1979 and 1990, respectively. The Department of Calculating Apparatus and Technology was renamed to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in 1981 and the School of Computer Science and Engineering in 2006.

The School of Computer Science and Engineering of has three departments, i.e., the Department of Computer Science, the Department of Computer Engineering and the Department of Imaging Science and Technology. The School is entitled to award doctorate degrees on the first-level discipline “Computer Science and Technology”, including all three second-level disciplines: “Computer System Architecture”, “Computer Software and Theory” and “Applied Computer Technology”. The School is also entitled to award doctorate degrees on “Image Processing and Scientific Visualizations” and “Software Engineering”. The School has three national and provincial top-priority disciplines, i.e. the provincial Priority Academic Program Development first-level discipline “Computer Science and Engineering”, the national key second-level discipline “Applied Computer Technology” and the provincial key first-level discipline “Computer Software and Theory”. The first-level discipline “Computer Science and Technology” is ranked 17th/120 in China. The School is ranked top 1% in the world according to the Essential Science Indicators.

The College of Software Engineering, among the first national demonstrative software education institutes, was established in 2001 and began offering courses in 2002.
