School of Information Technology

      Founded in January, 2001, School of Information Technology is composed of 4 departments: ”°Computer Science Department, Mathematics Department, Electronics Department and Information Management Department”±; 3 centers: ”°Intelligent Information Technology and Experimental Teaching Center, University Physics Experiment Center, Agricultural Informationization Engineering Research Center”±; 2 offices: ”°school office and student work office”±, as well as one base: college students' scientific and technological innovation entrepreneurship base. It has set up five undergraduate majors: Information and Computing Science, Computer Science and Technology, Electronic Information Science and Technology, Information Management and Information System, Internet of Things Engineering, which undertake all the public basic Mathematics courses and College Physics basic courses of JAU. It also possesses a master's degree authorized discipline in Computer Application Technology. (Hereinafter referred to as SIT)

     At present, 95 faculties are working for SIT, among them 6 professors, 25 associate professors (associate researcher), 48 lecturers, 37 teachers with doctor”Æs degree which account for 50% of full-time teachers, one doctoral supervisor, 18 master's supervisors, one provincial outstanding contribution expert, one provincial Labor Day Medal winner, one distinguished teacher, 5 quality teaching winners. SIT covers a total number of 1524 undergraduates and 83 postgraduates.

     Cultivating talents with information technology is its objective, training talents with agricultural informationization is its feature, SIT focusing on the improvement of engineering ability and overall quality of students. It owns complete information technology professional facilities needed for teaching and scientific research: 18 sub laboratories under the supervision of the technology and intelligence agricultural experimental teaching center, including Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, Communication Engineering, Internet of Things, Engineering and Information Engineering etc., all of them cover a total area of more than 2861 m2, the total amount of fixed assets is around 12 million RMB. SIT has won various awards: one provincial quality course, 5 provincial excellent courses, 15 research projects of Jilin province and Ministry of Education, 3 provincial teaching achievement awards, 5 provincial education technical achievement awards. 20 textbooks have been compiled and published and five of them are rated as provincial excellent teaching materials. Our students actively participate in the national mathematical modeling contest, the National Undergraduate Electronic Design Contest, ACM program design contest, the national Internet of things contest, the national challenge cup contest etc. In the past three years, they have won various prizes: 52 national prizes, 181 provincial awards, a silver prize of 63rd Nuremberg International Invention contest in 2011, a golden prize of "progressive innovation" in the thirteenth session of the "Challenge Cup" national university student extracurricular academic science and technology works competition in 2014, Undergraduate students get 8 patents acquired by undergraduates, 25 computer software copyrights were registered. In 2014, student electronic interest association of school won the support of The Central Committee of the Communist Young League 100 college students in science and technology innovation team, which called "Xiaoping science and technology innovation team". Electronic information technology innovation personnel training experimentation area was rated as the provincial talent training mode innovation experimentation area. The initial undergraduate employment rate is above 90%.

     In recent years, SIT continues to strengthen the construction of the scientific research platforms, including Jilin province internet of things engineering academy of research center, two provincial platforms and innovation teams of Jilin province biological information research center. SIT has undertaken 12 research programs: ”°national 863 key projects, national 973 plan projects, projects of National Natural Science Foundation of China, Doctoral foundation Program of the Ministry of Education”±, 85 provincial and municipal scientific research projects including one key scientific and technological project of Science and Technology Department of Jilin Province. It also have won many prizes: 2 science and technology advancement awards of Chinese Academy of Science and 8 science and technology advancement awards of Jilin Province, and 20 natural sciences academic achievement awards of Jilin Province. Faculty members of SIT have released more than 300 high level academic papers, 213 of them can be retrieved in SCI, EI, in addition, 3 monographs, and 66 patents have been accomplished.

     SIT attaches great importance to the international communication and have established stable cooperative relationship with many famous foreign universities from Japan, South Korea, Italy etc. We have co-cultured many undergraduate and graduate students with Italian Camerino University, signed a joint training agreement with Konkuk University and a postgraduates training agreement with Fuji University. From 2013, it starts to receive foreign students to study in our school.
