The College lab center has four labs of math research and modeling, information management, statistics and computer mathematics, and owes three multi-media classrooms, 250 microcomputers with a lab space of 740 square meters. The College library possesses over 110 thousands books and over 150 journals.

l **Faculty and ****S****taff**

The College has 106 teachers and administrative staff, including 19 professors, 34 associate professors, 54 of whom already have doctoral degrees, 5 of whom are doctoral supervisors. There are one person listed in “ the one-thousand-talents scheme”, two “Young Experts who have Made Nationally Outstanding Contributions”, four teachers who are receiving special subsidies from the State Council, one “Province Renown Teachers in Jiangxi Province”, six members of “Mainstay Young Teachers in Jiangxi Higher Education”, four members of first and second level of “the Provincial Hundred, Thousand and Ten Thousand Talents Project of Jiangxi”, three exclusively employed members of “Jinggang Scholars Project”, three selected in the first group of the “Ganpo 555 Project for Outstanding Talent”, six who are in the Jiangxi scheme for Fostering Leaders in Basic Disciplines and Technology into the New Century.

l **Personal Training**

The College presently has more than 1600 full-time undergraduate students, more than 200 postgraduates studying for masters’ degrees. The College always emphasizes on cultivating the comprehensive quality of its students. In the recent years, the employment rate of our Bachelor’s degree students at graduation is more than 90%, while those with Master’s degrees is 100%. Our graduates are widely acclaimed by the various walks of life across the country and abroad. Many of them have become experts, professors, Superfine Teachers and the backbone of all walks of life.
