School of Electronic Engineering
The School of Electronic Engineering has a long history. Its predecessor body was the Department of Radar Engineering of PLA Communication Institute, which was founded by some famous experts of electronics represented by Sun Junren, a famous expert in electronic system and Bi Dexian in 1952. In June, 1999, the former School of Electronic Engineering, the Department of Microwave Telecommunication and Antenna Research Institute merged into the new School of Electronic Engineering.
Now the School has 310 faculty members, among which there are 278 full-time teachers, 89 professors, 130 associate professors, 119 full-time doctoral supervisors and 208 master supervisors.
