HEU is Authorized to Add Six New Master's and Doctoral Degrees Granting Points


Recently, the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council has published the List of Master's and Doctoral Degrees Granting Points Approved Adding and Dynamically Adjusted in 2017, authorizing HEU to add two First-level Disciplines for Doctoral Degree Granting of Mathematics and Instrument Science and Technology, one Professional Doctoral Degree Granting Point of Engineering, and three First-level Disciplines for Master's Degree Granting of Marine Science, Sociology, and Foreign Languages and Literature.


The new addition of degree-granting points has a profound influence on HEU's discipline layout and the construction of degree-granting points. The First-level Discipline for Doctoral Degree Granting of Mathematics is the first doctoral degree granting point of Science in our school. This is a major breakthrough in the construction of fundamental disciplines and also makes up for the deficiency of current discipline layout. The First-level Discipline for Doctoral Degree Granting of Mathematics will have a significant effect on laying a solid foundation for the development of the discipline system.  It will also enhance the support capability of fundamental disciplines in featured discipline systems and carry out the building method of "integrating science and engineering while implementing to engineering areas". The Professional Doctoral Degree Granting Point of Engineering is the very first professional doctoral degree granting point of HEU. This helps to establish our school as an industry-featured and research-oriented university. The Professional Doctoral Degree Granting Point of Engineering aims at cultivating high-end engineering specialists, especially with practice-oriented advanced talents who can play a leading role in the country. The newly-set Master's Degree Granting Point of Marine Science will efficiently push forward developing the featured discipline structure of the Shipbuilding Industry, Marine Equipment, Ocean Exploration and Nuclear Application, while deepening the connotation of discipline construction, and fully using the marine situation of the Qingdao Campus to achieve fast development. The First-level Discipline for Doctoral Degree Granting of Instrument Science and Technology and the First-level Disciplines for Master's Degree Granting of Sociology and Foreign Languages and Literature will strongly boost the exemplary layout of discipline, demonstrate the advantages of supporting disciplines, and form qualified liberal arts disciplines.


HEU has, so far, 14 First-level Disciplines for Doctoral Degree Granting, 1 Second-level Disciplines for Doctoral Degree Granting, 1 Second-level Doctoral Degree Point (not on the list), 1 Professional Doctoral Degree Granting Point, 32 First-level Disciplines for Master's Degree Granting, 4 Second-level Disciplines for Master's Degree Granting, and 24 Professional Master's Degree Granting Points.
