The Computer Specialty in Harbin Institute of Technology was founded in 1956, which is one of the earliest computer disciplines in China. In 1985, it developed into the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. In 2000, the School of Computer Science and Technology was founded. Currently, the School of Computer Science and Technology has one nationalfirst class key discipline of Computer Science and Technology, one post-doctoral station, one National Teaching Team, National Science and Technology Innovation Team and one .Innovation Research Team of COSTIND. It has 7 doctoral degree programs and 7 master’ degree programs, among which the Doctoral Degree Program on Computer Application Technology established in 1986 is the first batch of national key discipline, the Doctoral Degree Program on Computer Architecture founded in 1981 as the first batch of Chinese doctoral degree program is also the national key discipline. It ranked A in the third-round of China discipline Ranking by the Ministry of Education.



The School of Computer Science and Technology at HIT has been ratified as a key discipline in the National “211 Project”, “985 Project” and “the double first-class computer discipline construction group”. Hundreds of research projects funded by the state or ministries have been accomplished in the school; fruitful achievements have been gained and awarded by the state, ministries and provinces. More than 100 patents and software copyrights have been achieved by the school. After years of efforts and development, the school has formed more than twenty research fields in the discipline of computer application technology and computer architecture, such as intelligent human-computer interface, natural language understanding and Chinese information processing, mass data processing, computer network and information security, high reliable and fault-tolerant computation, intelligent computing for enterprises and service computing, bio-metrics and bio-computing, intelligent robots, sensor network ,mobile computing ,wearable computing and so on.
