The School of Software Engineering at
Chongqing University was established in December 2001 and is one of
the foremost software engineering schools in China. It is
characterized by its extent of research and teaching interests and a
high quality of faculty and graduates. In an evaluation of software
engineering schools by the Ministry of Education in 2006, the school
was rated as the top software engineering school in western China.
Currently, the School is a community of 33 faculty members including
3 foreign instructors from Ireland and India, 10 staff both
technical and administrative, 632 undergraduate students and 400
graduate students. Most of our faculty members have had experience
studying or working overseas.
Chongqing University covers a total area of
5,700 mu (about 178 hectares), with 1.39 million square meters of
construction space. The campus has many sports facilities such as
football, basketball, volleyball and badminton courts. Also indoor
and outdoor swimming pools are available to all students. The
university library is very well equipped with a collection of 2.79
million volumes, 6000 publications of Chinese and foreign
periodicals, and 140,000 volumes in E-book format.
The school has strong ties with IT companies
such as Microsoft, IBM, HP, HUAWEI, KINDEE and a number of local IT
companies. Every year, our students have opportunities to join these
companies as an intern to develop software projects. The school has
also established close cooperative relationships with overseas
universities including Michigan University, University of South
Alabama, Auburn University, Waterloo University, McMaster
University, Carleton University in Canada, University of Queensland
in Australia, and the European Institute of Technology in France.
To meet the requirements of the national IT
development strategy, our school is responsible for teaching and
training software engineering professionals who have the ability to
build and maintain complex software systems by the principle of
software engineering, the capability to evaluate the quality of
software systems, as well as the ability to communicate in English.
It is also emphasized that our graduates should have the aptitude of
managing software projects and seeking their professional careers in
an international software industry.
Students attending the School of Software
Engineering at Chongqing University can enjoy a vast range of
cultural, educational, athletic and social activities. Getting
involved in campus life is the quickest way to become a part of the
University community, and to create one's own learning experience.
