On December 28th, 2017, the Chinese Academic Degrees & Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) of the Ministry of Education published the results of the fourth round of the China Disciplines Ranking.  Seventeen disciplines from HIT were given a rating of “Class-A”. Three were rated as “Class-A plus” disciplines (the top 2%). These were environmental sciences and engineering, mechanical engineering and control science, and engineering. Five were given a rating of “Class-A” disciplines (the top 2% to 5%). These were mechanics, materials science and engineering, computer science and technology, civil engineering and management science and engineering. Nine were rated as “Class-A minus” disciplines (the top 5%-10%).  These included instrument science and technology, power engineering and engineering thermophysics, electrical engineering, optical engineering, software engineering, urban and rural planning, chemical engineering and technology, information and communication engineering and mathematics. In addition, twelve disciplines, including aeronautical and astronautic science and technology were ranked “Class-B”. Food science and engineering and an additional 6 disciplines were ranked “Class-C”.

Evaluations for the fourth round of the China Discipline Ranking began in April, 2016.  7,450 disciplines from 512 degree-conferring institutions applied to participate. Nearly 88% of China’s colleges and universities participated. 96% of China’s Doctoral degree granting institutions of higher learning participated. Thirty-eight disciplines from HIT were ranked.  Thirty-six of them reached the ranking list. HIT ranked sixth among all colleges and universities with Excellent Discipline ratings (the proportion of Class-A disciplines to degree-granting disciplines). HIT ranked eighth among all colleges and universities in number of Class-A disciplines.

Unlike previous discipline rankings, the results of this round of discipline rankings were determined by the percentile, weakening the score and ranking. Specifically, the results were divided into three classes: A, B, C with a total of nine levels. There was no score or ranking and only the top 70% of disciplines were announced.
