Scientific Research

Research is an essential contribution. CUIT encourages and facilitates research for three primary reasons:

Contributes to the public good

Both applied and basic research have the potential to enhance the quality of life for all.

Encourages faculty development

Research keeps faculty current on the issues and methods driving their respective disciplines.

Enhances the educational process

Research ensures "cutting edge" professors engage students and promote academic skills.

CUIT encourages interdisciplinary research across department and school boundaries while focusing on tackling challenges for society at large. In five years, the university has joined programs such as the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the Social Science Foundation of China (SSFC), along with 106 other national scientific research programs. Two programs have won the National Science-Technology Progress Prize.
