On September, 2000, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University was founded out of the merger of former Fujian Agriculture University and former Fujian Forestry College. On May, 2001, Department of Computer Science of former Fujian Forestry College, Mathematics and Applied Mathematics Major of Department of Basic Sciences of former Fujian Forestry College, and the Teaching and Research Office of Public Mathematics and Computer Foundationof Department of Basic Courses of former Fujian Agriculture University, merged to form today’s College of Computer and Information Sciences (hereinafter “CCIS”). Department of Computer Science of former Fujian Forestry University was established in 1995, the predecessor of which, set up in 1993, was the Computer Application Major of Department of Forest Engineering of Fujian Forestry College. And the predecessor of the Mathematics and Applied Mathematics Major, set up in 1993, was the Math Education Major of Department of Basic Courses of Fujian Forestry College.

At present, CCIS has two first discipline master degree programs (Computer Science and Technology as well as Statistics), and 7 full-time undergraduate programs (Computer Science and Technology, Statistics, Electronics and Information Engineering,Soft Engineering, Network Information Engineering, and Mathematics and Applied Mathematics). It has formed a relatively comprehensive cultivation system for talented undergraduates in field of ComputerInformation as well as Mathematics. Currently, CCIS possesses a total enrollment of 2180 undergraduates and 47 academic postgraduates.

CCIS owns abundant qualified teaching resource. The current total number of faculty is 189 and 159 of them are full-time teachers including 15 professors, 43 associate professors, 1 senior engineers and 4 senior experimentalist. 90.5% of the full-time teachers have achieved a doctor’s degree or master’s degree including 108 master and 47 doctors. Additionally, there are 2 members ofThe Recruitment Program of Global Experts and 4 members Fujian provincial “Hundred-Talent Program”, 6 chair professors of “Minjiang Scholar”, 5 chair professors of “Jinshan Scholar”. Moreover, several teachers have been honored as Provincial Talent, Provincial New Century Excellent Talent of Colleges and Universities, and Provincial Excellent Teachers, etc.

Focusing on deepening the teaching reform and taking the opportunity of innovative development of Engineering and the construction of high-level universities, CCIS implements the classification mode and multi-competence model of talent cultivation to continuously promote the talents training quality. Since 2012, CCIS has won 1 Second Prize for Teaching Achievements in Fujian Province, and respectively 1 Special Prize, 3 First Prizes, and 8 Second Prizes for school-level Teaching Achievements. It has taken charge of 7Industry-school Cooperation Collaborative Education Project of Ministry of Education, 7 provincial and 55 school-level Teaching Reform Programs, and 1 provincial Elaborate Open Online Course, and, published over 20 textbooks at national press. Besides, 3 teachers have got the First and Second Prize in National College Mathematics Micro-teaching Design Competition.

CCIS possesses 3 provincial research platforms, including Digital Fujian Big Data Institute of Agriculture and Forestry, Smart FAFU Key Laboratory of Colleges and Universities in Fujian Province, Fujian Resources and Environment Spatial Information Statistics Research Center, and 9 school-level scientific research platforms, including the Smart FAFU & Big Data Research Center and the Research Institute of Computer Application, etc. Since 2012, it has directed 25 projects of NSFC (National Natural Science Foundation of China), 1 National Key Pilot Project for Agricultural Technology Extension of Ministry of Agriculture, 31 programs of provincial Natural Science Foundation, and 9 provincial and ministerial level Key Scientific Research Projects. Theresearch fundsat or above the provincial and ministerial levelsadds up to more than 15 million yuan. Thus, CCIS has made important contributions to the research of information technology and the development of industry in Fujian Province.

CCIS pays attention to the cultivation of students’ innovative ability, hands-on ability, team spirit and comprehensive quality. The Collegiate Science and Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center was specially set up to provide all-round services such as the funds, place, equipment, instructors, and training that are necessary for students’ science and technology innovation. Since 2012, students have achieved good results in numerous professional competitions at home and abroad, including 2 Silver Prize and 5 Bronze Prize in ACM Collegiate Programming Contest (Asia Region), 9 First Prize and 22 Second Prize in China Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling, 9 First Prize and 15Second Prize in the Final of “Lan Qiao Cup” National Software Professional Talents Design and Entrepreneurship Contest, 1 Silver Prize in China College Students’ Entrepreneurship Competition in 2014, 1 Bronze Prize in the First China “Internet+” College Students’ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition in 2015, 2 Second Prize in Student Supercomputer Challenge in 2017(ASC17) and 1 First Prize in National Market Survey and Analysis Competition for College Students in 2018. Furthermore, CCIS has successively held the Fifth Fujian Provincial Collegiate Programming Contest in 2014 and the Fifth Cross-Strait Information ServiceInnovation Contest & Ninth Fujian Provincial Computer Software Design Competition in 2015.

Moreover, CCIS has been actively carrying out domestic and international academic cooperation and exchanges. It has conducted cooperation in running school with several foreign universities and colleges such as Dalhousie University (Canada), Otterbein University (the U.S.A), Durban University of Technology (South Africa), and Aberystwyth University (Britain), etc. The steady progress of academic exchanges and the internationalization of education has offered advanced conditions to the cooperative researches and communications between teachers and students and their studying abroad. Major of Computer Science and Technology as well as Major of Software Engineering have been included in the Outstanding Undergraduates’ International Exchange Program of China Scholarship Council (CSC). Additionally, CCIS has undertaken the Unveiling Ceremony of Digital Fujian Big Data Institute of Agriculture and Forestry and Forum on the Application Technology of Big Data in Agriculture and Forestry in 2018 and the 15th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing in 2016.

Since its founding, CCIS has fostered more than 9100 graduates. The initial employment rate of the college’s graduates has surpassed 95% for successiveyears. The number of graduates getting admitted into “985 Project” and “211 Project” universities for further learning increases year by year. CCIS enjoys a high employment rate and good employment qualityfor graduates with matched majors .
