At present, the facility has 16 undergraduate majors and 10 master's and doctoral students, with about 20,000 students enrolled and more than 4,000 graduates each year. Such figures show the growth in scale as well as the prestige and position of the school in the system of universities and colleges nationwide, the Vice President affirmed.

At the same time, it should compile and update curriculums and teaching materials suitable to the new situation with access to syllabi of advanced universities around the world, while enhancing international cooperation and scientific research towards internationalising its scientific evaluation and professional standards.
