Each year, about 200 undergraduate students, 300 master students, and 60 Ph.D. students complete their programs and receive their degrees.

2 Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Awards

Three types of Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Awards are issued every year, by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Beijing City Government, and China Computer Federation (CCF) independently. Each university recommends the best Ph.D. dissertation candidates to the three award committees. In each year, the total number of MOE awarded dissertations is 100 for all disciplines (started from 1999), that of Beijing City Government (started from 2008) is 50 for all disciplines, and that of CCF (started from 2006) is 10 for computer science and technology. In the past ten years, fifteen dissertations from students in the Department of Computer Science and Technology have won awards.

3 Teaching Awards and Honors

In recognition of our teaching achievements, Beijing City Government has twice issued the Beijing Educational Achievement Award to the Department of Computer Science and Technology and has issued the Beijing Distinguished Teacher Award to three members of the faculty. In addition, the honored title “National Teaching Group” has also been awarded by the MOE to a group of faculty members in the Department.

4 Textbook Publication

In the past years, the faculty members of the Department have published more than 200 textbooks that cover many fields of computer science and technology. Some textbooks have been adopted by universities and colleges around China for many years. As a result, some books have wide circulation, for example, one has sold over three million copies, three over one million copies, and three others over half million copies.

In recognition of our endeavors, 17 textbooks have been awarded the Excellent Textbook Award by the MOE; 13 textbooks have been awarded the Excellent Textbook Awards by the Beijing city government; and one textbook has been awarded the first-class Beijing Educational Achievement Award.
