Founded in April, 2000, the School of Computer Science and Technology(SCST)of Jiangxi University of TCM is one of the earliest established institutions among Universities of TCM offering computer science and technology training.
The school has made impressive progress in discipline construction, academic research, teaching and staff training since its foundation. It was accredited a first level master’s degree authorization in 2010,filling the gaps in the domestic TCM institutions. And it was also granted the key disciplines by the State Administration of TCM in 2013. Computer Science and Technology (specialization in medical information) and Biomedical Engineering (specialization in Medical Electronics) are approvedas the“characteristic specialties of higher education in Jiangxi Province”.
In the past five years, SCST undertakes 46 provincial or ministerial level scientific research projects, including 13 state level projects. Its self-developed “JZCMES Prescription and Decoction of Embedded Information System ” was identified as the “international advanced level” by the authoritive experts. 220 papers were published, 43 of them were included by SCI, EI. The dedicating staff also won 3 provincial science ＆ technology advancement prizes, 2 software copyrights, and 1 invention patent. They are also granted 2 first-prizes of the Provincial Teaching Achievement Awards, 1 Programfor Outstanding Engineers Plans,1 comprehensive professional pilot reform projectof Jiangxi, 5 provincial-level quality courses, 1 model teaching team, and 1 experimental teaching demonstration center.
The new teaching mode of “production,teachingand research”-a full-practice mode for training computer professional talents, has greatly improved the students’ practicalability, self-learning ability and team work ability. And nearly 50% of students' research works has been put into use. “The Excellent Engineers Plan” of Biomedical Engineering, an important part of the new teaching mode,is a school -enterprise cooperative program, which aims to cultivate students’ ability of practice and innovation.
The school currently offers the following programs:
Computer Science and Technology,specialization in Medical software engineering
Computer Science and Technology,specialization in medical information management
Biomedical Engineering,specialization in Medical Electronics
