College of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering


The School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering was originated from the former Department of Wireless Studies of Chengdu University founded in 1978, with a history of over four decades. It merged with the School of Computer Engineering into the School of Information Science and Engineering in 2015, which was later founded as the School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering in June 2020.

Status Quo

The School has 81 faculty members and 1,600 undergraduate and graduate students. There are 76 full-time teachers, including 5 professors, more than 50% of teachers holding deputy-senior or above titles, and 85% of them having master or doctoral degrees, of whom there are 36 doctoral degree holders. In addition, it has 1 expert with Outstanding Contributions in Sichuan Province, 2 candidates for Academic and Technical Reserve in Sichuan Province and 1 for "Green Pepper Program". More than 80% of teachers have work experience in enterprises. The School also has 7 distinguished professors and high-end foreign experts and 4 distinguished deputy Research Fellows.

The School comprises 2 departments, 1 office and 1 center; namely, the Electrical Engineering and Automation Department, Electronic Technology and Communications Department, Physics Teaching and Research Office, and Lab Technology Center. It boasts 1 National-level Engineering Practice and Teaching Center (jointly sponsored by Chengdu University and Chengdu Chengliang Tools Group Co., Ltd.); 1 Sichuan Provincial University Key Laboratory (Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Information Processing Laboratory); 1 Provincial Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center (Information Processing and Control Engineering). It has the "Siemens Advanced Automation Technology Laboratory", jointly set up with Siemens. It has a "Cross-disciplinary Studies of Automobiles and Electronics" Research Center at the university level. The teaching and research laboratory covers an area of 3,500 square meters, with over RMB 20 million of facilities.

In the past 3 years, students have won more than 550 awards in discipline competitions, including more than 100 national awards and 450 provincial awards. In the past 3 years, the School has won 1 second prize of the Sichuan Provincial Scientific and Technological Achievement Award and 1 second prize of the Chengdu Scientific and Technological Achievement Award, 1 first prize and 1 third prize of Sichuan Provincial Teaching Achievement Award. It owns 3 municipal scientific research platforms. In recent years, the School has received RMB 11 million of research funds. It has published more than 80 high-level scientific research papers. It has 4 National Natural Science Projects and 4 Sichuan Provincial Science and Research Projects.

The School has also been engaged in collaboration with businesses. It has co-established the H3C IT Collegeof Chengdu University with H3C Group under Tsinghua Unigroup and formed Chenglong Valley Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center with Longquanyi People's Government. It is committed to cultivating engineering talents for the leading industries of Chengdu on the basis of industrial needs and with the view to provide services for the local development.

School Features

1. Innovate the talent training mechanism based on in-depth government-enterprise-school-city integration

With the joint efforts of the government, enterprises, schools and the city and in accordance with engineering accreditation standards, market demand, the new requirements of engineering course construction, and the emerging mechanism of innovative talent cultivation, the School has implemented the “CDIO Education Model" and realized the target of "jointly training talents, sharing responsibility and results and managing the process together". In this way, the quality of talent cultivation has been greatly improved.

2. The practical teaching system featured by an equal emphasis on innovation and extension has provided students with an opportunity to make good use of their spare time to participate in extensional practices.  

Incentive measures are in place to motivate all the students to be actively involved in extensional practices. A multi-layered and full-dimensional program featured by " training scheme-based practical teaching + extensional teaching system based on practices + on campus training + off campus practice + entrepreneurship and innovation competition + hands-on projects" is well designed to improve students innovation ability for practice, while making up the shortfalls of training scheme and challenges of ineffective use of spare time.
