School of Electronic Engineering, as the earliest-founded school in University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, is composed of 4 departments and one center, namely Department of Microwave Engineering, Department of Electronic Engineering, Department of Information Engineering, Department of Integrated Circuits and Systems and Electronic Experiment Center.
As a research-active school, it has highly qualified academic faculty, including 4 members of Thousand Talents Program, 4 Yangtse River Scholars, 4 winners of National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 3 member of Thousand Young Talents Program, 6 members of Sichuan Province Hundred Talents Program, 16 New Century Excellent Talents of Ministry of Education; Among which, there are 190 senior professional titles, 60 doctoral supervisors. The Team of Computational Electromagnetics & Microwave Engineering Application is supported by Program for Innovative Research Team of Ministry of Education of China.
Two of the school’s First-level Disciplines, Electronic Science & Technology, Information & Communication Engineering, ranked No.1 and No.2 respectively in 2012 National Key Discipline Assessment. Meanwhile, the school holds three national key disciplines, including Signal & Information Processing, Circuits & Systems and Electromagnetic Field & Microwave Technology, together with one provincial key discipline, that is Information Acquisition & Exploration Technology, every one of which has doctoral and master program. Moreover, the school has two mobile post-doctoral stations for Electronic Science & Technology, Information & Communication Engineering, respectively.
The school has established four undergraduate major: Electronic Information Engineering, Electromagnetic Field and wireless technology, Information Counter Technology, Radio Wave Propagation and Antenna. It holds two National Teaching Bases, namely the National Basic Courses Base of Electrician and Electronics and the National Electronic Experiment Center for Educational Demonstration. The school attaches great importance to the cultivation of students’ ability to innovate, so much so that undergraduates and postgraduates perform very well in international academic conferences and competitions.
In addition, the school is equipped with a range of national and ministerial /provincial Laboratories and research centers, such as: EHF Key Laboratory of Fundamental Science and Novel Microwave Exploration Technology Engineering Research Center of the Ministry of Education. Its powerful strength in scientific research has extended to eight research fields which are closely related with domestic economic development. The school has constructed a group of scientific research platforms, such as electronic system integration test, large anechoic chamber, microwave & millimeter-wave integrated circuits online test, etc.
The school actively participates in international cooperation and exchange. It has constructed two Discipline Innovation Introduction Bases (“111 Project”), holds at least two international academic conferences annually, and extensively cooperates with famous foreign universities and research agencies. All of these have helped the school strengthen its academic influence.
More than 16000 students have already graduated from the school, many of which have outstood and played important roles in the areas of national defense research, aerospace and electronics. Among them, there are senior leaders and administrators like Admiral Jia Tingan, reputed scholars like Prof. Xue Quan from City University of Hong Kong, as well as leading figures and elites of IT like Ding Lei, etc. A great number of excellent graduates have become backbone of electronic information field home and abroad, made crucial contributions to the development of China’s information technology and industry.
In the 21st century, a century full of changes and hopes, following the concept of ‘distinctive, research-oriented, open-minded’ of UESTC and the strategy of “quality-oriented, distinctive and sustainable development”, combining the trend of scientific technology development, the need of social economy development and current situation of the school, School of Electronic Engineering will spare no effort to build itself to a discipline-distinctive, academically influential and international well-known research-oriented school.
