Electronic Engineering

The Department of Electronic Engineering has a history of more than 50 years, and its former specialties were semiconductor, radio wave and electronics. With the growing population of both undergraduate and postgraduate students, the department now has a rapid development and covers the disciplines of microelectronic, solid state electronics, optoelectronics, circuits & systems, sensors & actuators. The department looks forward to challenge ahead and becomes more competitive in the university system.

The faculty and research staffs are experts in the fields of electronics, and they provide our students with the necessary knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing information age. We make every effort to explore the potential of each student and develop his interests and aspirations. In parallel, our highly successful courses and continuing professional research work supply the need to keep pace with the latest technology.

The teaching programs have been carefully designed with constant revision and enhancement. The syllabus is continually under development and review, in line with the requirements of the latest technological needs of industry. Required courses in the system integrate technological skills with theoretical disciplines, and are designed to help students keep up with technical progresses and applications. As an extension, elective courses offer students with advanced ideas, flexibility and interdisciplinary communications.

With solid foundation and good training in the areas of electrical engineering, the graduates are eligible in the following fields: electronic material, solid state electronics, devices, optoelectronics, integrated circuit design, and sensor application.

Our research groups include Microelectronic and Solid State Electronics, Optoelectronics, Circuits & Systems, and Sensors & Applications. The group members engage in a wide range of research areas such as photonic materials, optoelectronics system, nano-electronics, silicon processing & manufacturing technologies, electronic circuit simulation, IC design, and sensor’s applications, etc. Our team of faculty offers strong support for the research postgraduates. The usual study period is 3 years for a MSc and 5 years for a PhD. Financial support is provided by the Ministry of Education, the National Science Foundation of China, and other research organizations. We also have close contact with the industry which ensures that our research will meet the current needs.
