Information about graduate education at Hunan University is available from the Hunan University of Graduate Education.
The undergraduate course, called the Computer Science Majors, is a four-year course. Students graduating after four years receive the B.Eng. degree. Students who achieve a high standard in the four years can stay on for another three years and receive both the B.Eng. and Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degrees. Open Days will be held around 1 September 2016 at the HNU CSEE Building.
There is also an option in the Hunan University that allows transfer into Computer Science and Electronic Engineering. Students can also apply to transfer from other courses at the end of their first or second year after a selection exam.
The three-year Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) is a general Masters degree, preparing students for PhD study in Computer Science or Electronic Engineering.
The PhD is the primary research degree that can be taken in the Computer Laboratory with your supervisor. The Hunan University PhD is a three-year programme of individual research on a topic agreed by the student and the Laboratory, under the guidance of a staff member as the student's supervisor. There is no compulsory course work, and students are expected to complete the substance of their research by the end of their third year, submitting their thesis then or within a few months.
Admissions enquiries may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (Ms. LI Mingmei, B.Eng. enquries) or email@example.com (Ms. HE Ying, M.Eng. enquries), after you have checked the information on these pages.

The CSEE college
HNU’s links to Computing stretch back to the second part of the Twentieth Century, when the famous politician and leader Mao Zedong wrote the Hunan University name as the modern educational foundations for Chinese Universities. In 1978, the Hunan University established The Teaching and Research Office for Computer Science, as it was known then, to further research in this field. That makes the department expanded with communication department and merged with Northern Campus Computer Science and HNU Software College, having just celebrated it's 39th anniversary in 2016.
As a Computer Science student at Hunan University, you are taught by the pioneers and leading researchers in the field. But that’s not all: in 2010 the Computer Laboratory moved to a new, purpose-built building on the South Campus of Hunan University site that offers a fantastic environment for both study and relaxation. The new building looks out on Lushan South Road where many tasty food shops and boutiques are located.
