Enrollment Advantage
Civil Engineering is one of the first majors established in ZUST more than 30 years ago. After years of construction
, the profession platform is steadily improving, and the strength of scientific research is increasingly growing. In 2008, Civil Engineering was recommended by Zhejiang Provincial Education Department and approved as one of the third batch of national characteristic specialty construction points. In 2010, Civil Engineering Lab Center was classified as experimental teaching demonstration center in Zhejiang Province. In May 2012, Civil Engineering passed the National Civil Engineering undergraduate education assessment held by Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of the People’s Republic of China (MOHURD), and became the first major that has passed the professional assessment in Zhejiang University of Science and Technology, ZUST. In June 2012, Civil Engineering was funded as the key discipline by the Zhejiang Provincial Twelfth Five-Year Plan. In January 2013, the construction of academic master’s program of Civil Engineering passed the qualification check.
Civil Engineering discipline carries out international exchange and cooperation positively, broadens the international educational channels to enhance cooperation with oversea universities. So far,the partner universities are German Jade University of Applied Sciences, Georg Simon Ohm University of Applied Sciences Nuernberg, Coburg University of Applied Sciences, San Francisco State University, and France Cergy-Pontoise University and so on. The main programs include Civil Engineering International Program (San Francisco State University),Double Degree Program (Luebeck University of Applied Science), Sino-France Joint Program (Cergy-Pontoise University).

5) Applied Statistics

“The master degree graduate students of applied statistics” project offers a solid foundation for theoretical statistics, providing extensive education in the field of applied statistics, and providing big data analysis and practical projects. Graduates are employed in the whole world, involving fields, including all sectors of society, economic and financial industry, government and business management, social investigation and analysis, and statistical analysis of all kinds of big data. The master of applied statistics is designed for those interested in business, industry, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, enterprise, government, or scientific research.

The master of applied statistics requires that students must be an undergraduate degree. The professional background is inclined to recruit students in the fields of statistics, mathematics, engineering, physics, economics, finance, management, computer science, and so on.

In the premise course, students should learn the following four courses: the minimum mathematics background, the two semester calculus, a calculus course based on non calculus, and a matrix algebra.

Enrollment Advantage

For this project, students have two options:

Option I is focused on the sample analysis and statistical analysis of the economic and financial industry, the enterprise and the government management.

Option II is the large data science and large data statistical analysis of various industries. Compared with Option I, this selection is more focused on computing science, such as database, data storage, large data processing, and so on.

For students who have professional knowledge in statistics, applied mathematics, engineering or computing science, they can finish in 2 years. The major must start in autumn and end in spring.

For students who are not well prepared, Zhejiang University of Science and Technology can make up for the prerequisite courses of the major, which will increase the time required to complete the degree, increase one semester or two semesters, and start school in autumn or spring.
