In the year of 2002, Center for Information Science, together with the Department of Electronic, the Department of Computer Science and the Institute of Microelectronics constituted the School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science of Peking University. It is the first department of Intelligence Science in all the universities in China. Right to now, it is authorized to grant degrees of master, Ph.D. and post doctor, and it is applying actively for opening the undergraduate courses of Intelligence Science and Technology. According to the planning, it is entitled to start enrolling undergraduate students of Intelligence Science and Technology major in the year of 2004.
