It is one of the earliest information security majors approved by the State. In 2013, it was selected as one of the majors in MOE’s Excellent Engineers Education Training Plan. The Major is based on the platform of the first-level discipline of Computer Science and Technology, and holds a first-level doctoral degree program and a first-level post-doctoral mobile station in Computer Science and Technology. In 2007, it was selected as the development unit of the National Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center of Computer and Information Technology. In 2012, it was ranked 12th in the third round of discipline assessment by MOE, and entered the top 10% of the 120 participating disciplines in China.
