Electronic and Information Engineering

The School of Electronics and Information (SEI) at Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) was established in May 2003, whose predecessor is the Department of Radio System founded in 1958. In 1970, the Air Weapons Control Specialty and the Air Weapons design Specialty of the Air Force Engineering Department in Harbin Military Industry University were incorporated into this department. Currently, SEI@NPU includes five departments and one experimental center, namely the Department of Micro-nano Electronics and Integrated Circuits, the Department of Electronic Engineering, the Department of Systems and Control Engineering, the Department of Communication Engineering, the Department of Information Engineering and the Electronic Experimental Teaching Center.

Paid course type

The electronic information engineering specialty is developed from radar specialty established in 1958 for many years. It belongs to the key construction specialty of the former Commission of science, technology, and industry for national defense, Shaanxi's famous brand specialty, and international talent training pilot specialty. It mainly studies the acquisition and processing of information, the design, development, application, and integration of electronic equipment and information systems. It integrates modern electronic technology, information technology communication technology, and computer technology. Based on the all-English curriculum system, electronic information engineering (international class) trains senior electronic engineering technical talents and international talents in electronic information engineering with a solid theoretical foundation, strong engineering practice ability, wide adaptability, and high professional quality in the field of electronic information. Graduates will be able to engage in research and development in the field of electronic and information engineering at home and abroad, It covers the fields of electronic and information equipment and systems, signal and information acquisition, transmission and processing, automatic control, communication, microelectronic systems, computer applications, RF and microwave technology, etc.
