As one of the first group of departments established at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTC), SUSTC Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (SUSTC-EEE) has made fruitful achievements after construction and development in recent years.
SUSTC-EEE makes full use of its regional advantages, centers on industrial development trend and has its research directions covered all fields of electronic information science and technology as well as new interdisciplinary fields such as energy, environment and biology.
SUSTC-EEE has set up a team consisting of internationalized and high-level teaching staff. There are 23 backbone teachers, who held overseas doctor's degree, worked or studied at the world top 100 universities. In particular, there are 7 members of 1000 Talents Program for Young Professionals, 3 winners of Guangdong Natural Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars, 3 top talents of Technical Innovation of Guangdong Special Support Program, 2 distinguished professors of Shenzhen Scholars Program and 5 fellows of important international associations.
SUSTC-EEE possesses a group of advanced scientific research platforms, such as Shenzhen Key Laboratory (a key laboratory for third-generation semiconductor devices), Engineering Center funded by Development and Reform Commission of Shenzhen Municipality (an electromagnetic noninvasive medical detection engineering laboratory in Shenzhen), Shenzhen Peacock Team (a R&D team for ultra-wide frequency spectrum and ultra-strong THz wave), Nanshan Key Laboratory (a key laboratory under industry-study-research cooperation in radio frequency and microwave communication in Nanshan District). In recent two years, it has obtained over 50 approved scientific research projects totaling nearly RMB 50 million, issued over 450 high-quality papers including over 230 papers listed in SCI, formulated IEEE 1906.1 and won the first prize for State Technological Invention Award by Ministry of Education with its achievements in scientific research.
SUSTC-EEE offers three undergraduate programs, namely, microelectronics science and engineering, optoelectronic information science and engineering and communication engineering. SUSTC-EEE is under preparation for establishing two first-level disciplines of electronic science and technology and information and communication engineering. It has carried out the program for joint training of postgraduates and extensive academic exchanges with famous colleges and universities at home and abroad, such as Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, University of Hong Kong, University of Singapore, Temple University and University of Queensland, etc.
Those who want to go abroad for further study after graduation obtain the full scholarship from postgraduate schools of famous overseas universities such as Nanyang Technological University and University of London. Those who go for work after graduation are employed by the key departments of well-known enterprises at home and abroad, such as Huawei.
SUSTC-EEE aims at building the world-class discipline of electronic and information engineering, bases on teaching enlightened by scientific researches and promotes close integration among innovation chain, talent chain and industry chain. It is dedicated to solving the major challenges faced by the human society with high-level academic researches, becoming the pacesetter in electronic information technologies with cutting-edge technical innovations and cultivating excellent talents with global vision, local wisdom and entrepreneurial spirit.
