The School Research Lab is a national show-case lab equipped with state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and IT support. Established in 1999, the Research Lab is on the 3rd & 4th floors of the EMS Building. It has been one of the school’s key projects since 2005 under the Chinese national drives called the “211” and “985” projects. During 2005-2009, the average annual investment was about 3million yuan per year. In 2007, the Lab was recognized with the title of ‘Model of Experimental Teaching Centre’ for Hubei Province. In 2008, the Centre was recognized as a Chinese National Experimental Teaching Demonstration Centre. The Lab’s IT infrastructure and supports are illustrated as follows:

In addition to its role as a public student and staff laboratory, our IT facilities also have specialist additional facilities for teaching on PCs and related stimulation software operation for various specific Chinese industries. In essence, there are specialist experimental laboratories that undertake strategic simulations, and personnel evaluations located in various rooms within the EMS Building. We have installed software related to strategic simulations, human resource appraisal, ERP and other teaching evaluation and simulation software. The overall aim is to provide students with online literature search, data processing, essay writing and other conditions and places. The experimental centre is equipped with eight full-time staff, with middle and senior professional titles who are responsible for equipment storage, maintenance and test operations counselling, In addition, the laboratory is also equipped with two part-time teachers who work as instructors.

The Lab is open all day on weekdays, and the software and data are updated frequently. A list of software and database available in the lab :
