The College of Computer Science and Technology


The College of Computer Science and Technology at Ocean University of China benefits from several platforms, including the Qingdao National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology, Qingdao Collaborative Innovation Center of Marine Science and Technology, Ministry of Education's Engineering Research Center for Ocean Information Technology, and Haier National Key Laboratory of Digital Home Appliances. It has a core team of internationally competitive researchers consisting of members from the Changjiang Scholars Program and recipients of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, as well as the Cross-Century Excellent Talents program of the Ministry of Education, focusing on intelligent information systems and marine big data. The college has advanced technology, such as ocean satellite ground receiving stations, drones, and underwater robots, which are used as observation platforms and equipment. Additionally, its multi-channel digital ocean system visualization platform promotes the development of the college's computer science discipline.


After years of construction and development, the College of Computer Science and Technology at Ocean University of China has formed two distinctive characteristics: marine information and smart home.

Marine information: Focused on the national digital ocean construction goals and key aspects such as digital ocean information acquisition, intelligent computing, and standard integration, the college has achieved significant results in key areas of the digital ocean, including marine three-dimensional monitoring networks, marine three-dimensional communication, underwater vision, etc. It has established a nationally recognized academic team specializing in marine information technology.

Smart Home: The college focuses on the needs of major regional industries such as the national home appliance industry base, conducting research on new-generation digital home core technologies such as digital family intelligent computing, intelligent gateways, and embedded software. In terms of industry-university-research collaboration, it has made important progress, establishing a nationally recognized academic team specializing in smart homes.


The College of Computer Science and Technology aims to cultivate highly qualified innovative talents in computer science with broad foundations and strong practical abilities. Specialized course modules such as marine science, digital media, and smart home design are offered for undergraduate students, combining oceanic features and industry advantages to develop their ability to master ocean information analysis and smart home software and hardware design. Graduate education includes multiple research teams focused on areas such as marine big data, underwater vision, satellite remote sensing, virtual oceans, visualization, and smart homes, enhancing their ability to solve engineering problems. Additionally, students are encouraged to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in computer science and improve their research abilities, enabling them to engage in independent scientific research and innovation.


After years of construction and development, the computer science and technology discipline has formed several research directions with distinctive characteristics, including: Internet of Things (IoT) technology, marine big data, underwater vision and intelligent control, and advanced manufacturing software.

The IoT technology research direction focuses on industrial property networking and the interconnected protocols of the ocean monitoring network system. The team has designed the architecture and software models for large-scale IoT systems, which have been applied in large enterprise groups across China's manufacturing factories, resulting in significant economic and social benefits.

The marine big data research direction focuses on key areas such as digital ocean information acquisition, intelligent computing, and standard integration to achieve the national goal of digital ocean construction. The team has made important breakthroughs in the digital ocean's critical areas such as the ocean monitoring network and communication, establishing a national-level academic team in the field of marine information technology.

The underwater vision and intelligent control research direction studies image acquisition, processing, pattern recognition, and high-resolution 3D imaging in the underwater environment. The team also studies the optimal control systems of underwater robots, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), and ocean platforms, providing services to the State Oceanic Administration and the Ministry of Natural Resources.

The advanced manufacturing software research direction focuses on new-generation industrial software core technologies such as digital home intelligent computing, smart gateways, and embedded software. The team has made significant progress in industry-university-research collaboration, establishing a national-level academic team in the field of industrial software. These efforts support local industrial development needs, including the country's major appliance manufacturing bases.


The discipline is led by a Changjiang Scholar Distinguished Professor appointed by the Ministry of Education and has formed an excellent teaching and research team with a reasonable structure and an international perspective. The team has received support from various national programs, including one recipient of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, four recipients of the Ministry of Education's New Century Excellent Talents Program, one recipient of the China Youth Science and Technology Award, and one expert recognized as having made outstanding contributions to China's youth. During the 12th Five-Year Plan period, the team undertook more than 70 key research projects in areas such as the National 973 Project, the 863 Project, the National Natural Science Foundation, and international cooperation projects between governments. The team has published over 500 papers in internationally renowned journals and conferences such as IEEE Trans, INFOCOM, CVPR, WWW, and ICCV. Additionally, over 500 students and faculty members have participated in international academic conferences, joint training programs, and study abroad opportunities. A total of 156 students have won awards in various national and provincial-level academic and practical competitions, indicating that the discipline's development has entered a fast lane.
