College Introduction    

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) has been established at Shenzhen University to provide both undergraduate and postgraduate education, focusing on interdisciplinary teaching and research. As a special platform at Shenzhen University, IAS seeks to

1. build a team consisting of experienced professors with international vision and young teachers with great potential;

2. adopt best-practice management methods used by overseas research universities to foster collaborations with world-class universities in Hong Kong and abroad;

3. create an academic atmosphere and training environment to meet with the international standards with the overall goal of attaining excellence in teaching, research and management.

IAS fosters the training of innovative talents, cutting-edge scientific research and hi-tech development in the cross fields of marine resources and environment, functional materials, biotechnology, and financial technology. The research outcomes and newly-trained talents will promote the hi-tech industries in Shenzhen, particularly emerging industries of strategic importance such as biology, Internet, new energy sources, new materials and next-generation information and communication technology and facilitate the transformation and growth of Shenzhen’s economy.

The Innovation Class in Science and Engineering (ICSE) of IAS has enrolled about 60 students each session during 2014-2018. The initial enrollment scale of graduate students is 10 to 30 students per year, and 30-60 students per year for the future, reaching 60-120 postgraduate students. The enrollment scale for doctoral students is 10-30 per year in the initial period, and the enrollment scale is 30 -60 students per year, reaching 120-240 doctoral students at school.

As of March 2018, IAS has over 20 full-time professors and 34 post-doctoral fellows. Full-time faculty members are employed on the basis of tenured or tenure-tracked positions. All professors, associate professors and assistant professors should be principle investigators of their own research groups, and will be employed, evaluated and promoted in line with domestic and foreign peer evaluation system. In research evaluation, quality of contribution to knowledge will be emphasized over simply the quantity of publications. All professors have studied abroad and met the qualifications of Shenzhen's high-level talents (Peacock Project) and the faculty include international academicians, experts of “National thousands of plans” Program (including Thousands Young Talents Plan), scholars of Chang Jiang Scholars Program, fellows of International Professional Society. They have got 77 projects of the National Natural Science Foundation grants, the Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province grants, the Science and Technology Projects of Shenzhen and the High-Caliber Personnel from the Peacock Project and published nearly 100 high-level international academic papers. Meanwhile, they have been invited to domestic and foreign academic conferences many times.

Combined with the characteristics of courses, students' abilities and teaching effects,IAS will adopt bilingual teaching .
