Welcome to the Department of Computer Science of Hong Kong Baptist University!

The ways that digital computers keep reshaping our life are amazing (e.g., personal computer in 1980s, internet in 1990s, smart phone in 2000s). And with the recent advent of technologies like internet of things (IoT), big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, quantum computing, etc., it will be interesting to imagine what our life will look like say for another ten years from now on. Computer Science is such a field where innovation is the key essence.

The Department, founded in 1988, has been dedicated and committed to university education, with equal emphasis on high quality research and teaching in computer science and information systems. Over the years, we have established research excellence with international reputation in four selected areas, namely Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML), Big Data and Data Management (BDDM), Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) and Distributed Systems and Networking (DSAN). Recently, we also commit to thematic application areas including “Health Informatics” and “Security and Privacy Aware Computing”. Like most research active universities, our faculty members publish in top tier journals, serve in editorial boards of major journals in their respective research fields, and obtain competitive research/technology grants from funding sources like the Hong Kong Research Grants Council, Innovation and Technology Commission of HKSAR, National Natural Science Foundation of China as well as local and overseas industries.

We offer undergraduate as well as postgraduate programmes, including B.Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science, B.Sc. (Hons) in Computing and Information Systems, M.Sc. in Information Technology Management, M.Sc. in Advanced Information Systems, and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) programmes. Since 2016-17, our BSc programmes are combined into one with three concentrations of study. They are i) “Computing and Software Technologies (CST)”, ii) “Information Systems and Analytics (ISA)”, and iii) “Data and Media Communication (DMC)” (co-offered with Department of Journalism). The Department is always striving for providing the best teaching and learning environment and experience, as well as equipping our students for their careers. Our graduates are well received by employers.

The collegial atmosphere of the Department is something that I am always proud of. So, welcome to visit us and be our students or partners so that we can innovate together for a better future of our world!
