School of Electronic and Optical Engineering

Established in October 1992, School of Electronic and Optical Engineering (“the School” for short) relies on Electronics and Optics, the two major basic disciplines in the field of modern information technology. The School has departments of Communication Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Optical Engineering, Optoelectronic Technology, Detection and Control Engineering, as well as Electric and Electronic Teaching and Experimental Center, Institute of Wireless Communication and Sensing Network, Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Spectral Imaging & Intelligent Sense, laboratories for national key disciplines, and other teaching and research institutions. With the advent of global informatization and the information age, the School has been achieving unprecedented rapid development.


At present, the School has two national key disciplines, namely Optical Engineering (first-level discipline) and Electromagnetic Field & Microwave Technology (second-level discipline), as well as two provincial key disciplines, namely Communication & Information System and Mechatronic Engineering. It has four mobile post-doctoral centers respectively for Optical Engineering, Information and Communication Engineering, Electronic Science and Technology, and Mechanical Engineering. Besides, its eight doctoral programs are Communication and Information System, Signal and Information Processing, Physical Electronics, Microelectronics and Solid State Electronics, Electromagnetic Field and Microwave Technology, Circuits and Systems, Optical Engineering, and Mechatronic Engineering. It also has a first-level master program in Biomedical Engineering. The School has established seven bachelor’s degree programs, including Communication Engineering, Electronic and Information Engineering, Optoelectronic and Information Engineering, Electronic Science and Technology, Vacuum Electronic Technology, Information Countermeasure Technology, and Detection, Guidance and Control Technology. Among them, the general majors such as Electronic and Information Engineering, Optoelectronic and Information Engineering, Communication Engineering, and Electronic Science and Technology are national and provincial brands and featured majors of key construction. The school has an enrollment of about 4,000 students, including 1,000 postgraduates, 2,200 undergraduates, 10 foreign students and 500 engineering postgraduates.


The School has 214 faculty members now, in which there are 25 doctoral supervisors, 41 members with senior professional titles, and 58 members with associate senior titles. It has strong scientific research capacity in technologies of optoelectronic information sensing, precise optical testing, short-range radar, and electromagnetic simulation, etc. Each year, the School undertakes more than 100 projects, which are respectively funded by National Natural Science Foundation, National High-tech R&D Program (863 Program), National Basic Research Program (973 Program), and provincial and ministerial research programs, and its employees publish more than 300 academic theses. The School has won 136 scientific and technological achievement awards, in which 13 awards at national level and 123 at provincial and ministerial level. In addition, it has 106 granted patents.


School of Electronic and Optical Engineering has established academic exchanges and cooperation with universities and institutions in the US, Japan, Germany, France, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other countries and regions. Each year, the School sends more than 50 person-times to go abroad for lectures, academic exchanges and research cooperation. It has advanced teaching and research equipment and experimental facilities. With the completion of the comprehensive teaching and laboratory building which was commenced in 2008, the School will step on a new level for its schooling environment and research conditions. With the world’s full access to the information age in the 21st century, the School will also usher in more opportunities and greater challenges.
