The School of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science of Jiangnan University was established in March 2020. Its history can be traced back to the computer application major established in 1994. The college adheres to Jiangnan University’s educational philosophy of”highlighting the characteristics of light industry and serving the national economy and people’s livelihood; innovating training models and creating industry backbones."Always adhere to the fundamental task of cultivating people with moral integrity, implement the three educational concepts of talent-oriented, output-oriented, and continuous improvement, and cultivate innovative talents with an international perspective who can solve complex engineering problems.The college makes contribute the wisdom and strength of Jiangnan people inthe core science and key technologies of artificial intelligence and computers.

The college has a complete talent training system for bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees. It has a doctoral degree authorization point for the first-level discipline of "Software Engineering", a doctoral degree authorization point for the second-level discipline "Light Industry Information Technology", two first-level master's degree authorization points for "Computer Science and Technology" and "Software Engineering", and "ElectronicsInformation" professional master's degree authorization point (three directions: software engineering, computer technologyandartificial intelligence). There are computer science and technology (the first batch of national-level“first-class undergraduate major”construction sites, national-level characteristic major construction sites, Jiangsu Province brand majors, Jiangsu Province industry-education integration majors, and national-level major comprehensive reform pilots), digital media technology (the first batch of national-level“first-class undergraduate major”construction sites, Jiangsu Province brand majors) and artificial intelligence (the first batch of Jiangsu Province“first-class undergraduate major”construction sites, Jiangsu Province specialty majors).

The college has a profound professional background, obvious disciplinary advantages and characteristics, and a complete teaching and scientific research platform.It has6 provincial and ministerial-level teaching and research platforms includingthe Health Intelligent Technology Engineering Research Centerof Education Ministry, the Intelligent Base School-Enterprise Collaborative EducationPlatform of EducationMinistry, the Information and Control National Teaching Demonstration Center.Jiangsu Provincial Pattern Recognition and Computational Intelligence Engineering Laboratory, Jiangsu Provincial Key Laboratory of Media Design and Software Technology, Jiangsu Provincial Artificial Intelligence International Cooperation Joint Laboratory, and Josef Kittler Artificial Intelligence Research Institute. .
