After half a century's development and construction, Changchun University of Science and Technology has been developed into a multidisciplinary university with opto-electronic technology as its outstanding feature and the integration of optics, mechanics, electronics, computer science as well as material science as its superiority.

Following the educational philosophy of "Focusing on Cultivation, Advocating Science" and the university motto of "Virtuous, Learned, Truthful, Innovative", the university is endeavouring to reach the goal of being "provincially top, nationally advanced, and internationally well-known". Changchun University of Science and Technology is ranked 3rd in Jilin province, in the top 15 among its kind of science and technology universities and in the top 150 out of 2845 universities in China.[1] Most of the engineering courses are ranked in the top 20. For example, optical engineering (2nd), instrument technology and sciences (11th), mechanics (13th), software engineering (13th), computer science (15th), control science and engineering (15th), and material science (16th).[2]

The university is particularly renowned for its optical-electrical engineering which is constantly considered one of the best in China along with Zhejiang University.[3] It is a founding member of the prestigious "Seven of Chinese Military Higher Education Institute Group".[citation needed] The university is affiliated with the Ministry of National Defense of the People's Republic of China and administrated by Jilin Provincial Education Department. It has been listed in the "Mid-Western Higher Education Institute Infrastructure Project" in 2012,[4] mostly known as the "Small 211 project" in China.

In 2021, Changchun University of Science and Technology started its new extended campus named Zhongshan Institute of Changchun University of Science and Technology (ZICUST) in Zhongshan, Guangdong, China. This institute is primarily to educate master's and doctorate students. It is expected that by the end of 2024, roughly 1,000 master's and doctoral students will enroll in ZICUST.

Changchun University of Science and Technology has accepted nearly 1000 international students since 1987. The international students come from over 30 countries including the United States, Russia, Britain, Canada, Norway, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Sudan, Mongolia, North Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Mali, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Micronesia.

Libraries edit

CUST Library was initially founded in 1958, simultaneously with the university itself. With unanimous growth with CUST, the infrastructure of the libraries as well as other aspects of dedication have maintained steady development. Since nearly half a century's construction, two large and modern libraries with its unique features of collection are now erupting at both the east campus and west campus of CUST. Following CUST's overall layout and programming, the library in the east campus nominates a collection of books in the fields of sciences while the library in the west campus mainly collects books involving the fields of humanities.

The libraries have now a collection of 1,772,000 copies of books in Chinese and foreign languages. The floor area of the libraries is 32,621 square meters.

Optical-Electric Engineering School edit

The optical electric engineering school, established in 1958, originated from the optical electric engineering department. There are five departments: optical engineering department, instrumental science and technology department, detection and information engineering department, photo electronics institution and the institute of space technology. There is one national key major, two Doctoral (optical engineering and instrumental science and technology), three master's programs (optical engineering, measuring and testing technology, and fine instruments), and four bachelor programs (controlling technology and instruments, optical-electric information engineering, information confrontation, detection guidance and controlling technology).
