Central South University（CSU）is situated in Changsha, a famous historic and cultural city in central south China. It’s a key national university under the direct administration of the Ministry of Education. CSU was established in April, 2000 through the amalgamation of three former universities, namely Central South University of Technology, Hunan Medical University and Changsha Railway University. CSU is among the first universities that entered the national key construction “211 Project” and ministry- province key construction “985 Project”. It’s one of the top-20 universities in over-all strength in China.
The fields of study at CSU now cover 11 branches of learning, namely engineering, science, medicine, literature, law, economics, management, philosophy, education, history and agriculture. CSU has formed its own superiorities and characteristics in mineral resources, material science & engineering, medical science, civil engineering, traffic & transportation engineering. Founded in 1914, Xiangya medical school of CSU was the first to teach western medicine in China. In the middle of the 20th century, the best disciplines in the national non-ferrous metal industry and in civil engineering in the south central China were aggregated in CSU. At the beginning of the 21st century, CSU reconfigured in the disciplines of engineering, science, medicine, humanities, etc.
CSU has 31 colleges and institutes, a graduate school, and 3 AAA-level affiliated hospitals. We offer bachelor’s degrees in 83 specialties, master’s degrees in 282 specialties, and doctor’s degrees in 142 specialties. CSU has 24 postdoctoral exchange centers, ranked 9th in the Chinese universities. There are 20,000 faculty and 52,400 enrolled students including 18,800 postgraduate students.
The international communication of the university is active and extensive. It has agreements on bilateral exchanges and cooperation with over 200 universities, research institutes and enterprises all over the world. like Monash Univ. in Australia, Oak Ridge National Lab in USA and Mittal Steel Company in India. CSU pays great attention to the education of foreign students. It began to enroll foreign students in early 1960’s. Now it has 800 overseas students from more than 90 countries studying at the university. It’s one of the universities undertaking Chinese Government Scholarship projects.
Degree Programs Bachelor’s Degree (4 Years, 5 Years for medicine)
Note: The specialties marked with “※”can be conducted in English with a prerequisite of a minimum number of 30 students for Bachelor’s degree, 10 students for Master’s degree, and 6 students for Doctor’s degree.

A Brief Introduction of The Computer Application Technology Classes
For Foreign Graduate and Doctorate Students Studying In Central South University
The School of Information Science and Engineering (SISE) of CSU began to recruit undergraduate students in 1958 and graduate students in 1978. SISE offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs in the discipline of Control Theory & Control Engineering, Computer Science & Technology, Electrical Engineering, Information & Communication Engineering, Electronics Science & Technology, Traffic Information Engineering & Control, and Systems Analysis & Integration etc. With about 7000 staffs and students, SISE has developed into the largest-scale school in CSU. The faculty of SISE is of high quality. Among them, there are famous domestic and oversea professors and experts. Currently, there are 329 faculties in the SISE. 65 full professors, among them, there are 37 PHD supervisors, and 112 associate professors. Meanwhile, a number of famous scientists both at home and abroad are employed to be honorary professor, guest professor and concurrent Professor in SISE
SISE began to open Classes for Foreign Graduate Students (CFGS) (3 years) in 1998 and Classes for the Foreign Doctorate Students (CFDS)(4 years) in 2007 learning discipline of Computer Science and Technology. 82 graduate students and 5 Doctorate students have graduated since then. Meanwhile, there are 88 graduate students and 32 Doctorate students in-study.
The discipline of Computer Science and Technology (CST) emphasizes on the such subjects as Modern Computer Network, Communication, Optimization Theory and Application of Network Computation, Modern Software Engineering, the Processing Technology of Computer Graphics and Graphical Information, the Computer Architecture and so on. CST has established some solid research areas each with its own characteristic, i.e., Theory of Computing Optimization and Application, Distributed and Parallel Processing, Intelligent Information Processing, Modern Software Engineering and Application, Theory of Network Computation, Modern and Algorithm, Theory and Technology of the Network Security, Theory and Communication Technology of Computer Network, Computer Architecture, Theory and Application of Multi-media Technology, Technology of Database and Information Processing, Semantic Web, the Offence and Defense of Computer Virus and Aspect Oriented Software Engineering and so on. CST aims at educating the advanced and specialized talents undertaking the research, development and design for various systems in the area of computer and the area related to computer. Those talents have owned the following edges: having solid theoretical foundation of computer science and technology, systematically understanding the technology of the subject, being familiar with the latest research achievements and the development trends of the subject, owning the ability to engage in the research work and solve the engineering problems independently, having competence for the job of high level teaching, research, software development and management in computer science and technology and related subjects.
Currently, we have graduate curricula: Computer Architecture, Artificial Intelligence, Modern Software Engineering, Advanced Computer Network Technology, and Database design, Theory of Computation, Multimedia Technology, Digital Graphics Processing and Application, Object Oriented Component Technology, Parallel Program Design etc. For doctorate students, the curricula are Modern Computer Application Technology, Research on Modern Computer Algorithm, Theory of Computation, Advanced Digital Graphics Processing and Theory of Intelligent Systems and Application etc.
