Department of Electronic Engineering in School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering, in Shanghai Jiao Tong University, has two primary disciplines including ‘Information and Communication Engineering’ and ‘Electronic Science and Technology’. Both have doctorate authorization with post-doctoral research stations. Four subordinate disciplines include ‘Communication and Information System’, ‘Signal and Information Processing’, ‘Circuits and Systems’, and ‘Electromagnetic Field and Microwave Technology’. The last two are the National key disciplines.
The main research fields in Department of Electronic Engineering are image communication, mobile communication, optical fiber communication, computer communication and network security, IC design, microwave RF circuit and antenna technology, signal processing, electronic measurement technology and so on. We have National Key Institute of Local Fiber-Optical Communication Networks and Advanced Optical Communication, Shanghai Key Laboratory of Digital Media Processing and Transmission, Shanghai Key Laboratory of Information Security Integrative Technology. The department builds many joint institutes and laboratories with many famous domestic and international enterprises, such as SJTU-Microsoft Joint Institute, SJTU-IBM Joint Institute, SJTU-Bell Communication and Network Joint Laboratory, SJTU-Samsung Joint Laboratory, SJTU-Leadtek Joint Laboratory. Department of Electronic Engineering has lay down research plans and implemented teaching programs based on advanced technologies and information on a global scale, the demand of national economic construction and the needs of the discipline development. Department of Electronic Engineering has already taken on dozens of National Nature and Science Foundation projects, National 863 key projects, National Defense key projects, National MOST (Ministry of Science and Technology) key projects, International Cooperation research projects and so on. We also have achieved a batch of high-level scientific research results with independent intelligent property rights. Many key technologies and techniques from the research results have contributed a lot for the economic development in our country. Some of the significant scientific research results are translated into the social productivity, and have already contributed substantially to the national economic development and local economic construction.
