Besides, among all 37 shortlisted institutions in Mainland China, NUIST ranks the 34th.

In April 2015, the School of Computer and Software started its experiment on deep international construction. Since then, the School focused on deepening transnational academic cooperation, cultivating top-level young talents and comprehensively upgrading its discipline development and academic strengths so as to cultivate a team of young teachers, vigorous and internationalized. Their main research outputs were published in IEEE INFOCOM, IEEE Transactions and other top conferences and journals in the field of Computer Science. The entrance of ESI top 1% indicates that our discipline of Computer Science has a high academic influence in the world and overall level of it has jumped to the advanced level in China.

At the same time, the ESI global ranking and the comprehensive university ranking of the Geoscience and Engineering subjects of our university also rose steadily. The world ranking of the subject of Geoscience had a rise of 44 compared with that of the last period (March, 2017) and that of the Engineering subject had a rise of 88 compared with that of the last period.
