Research Institutes

Relying on the National Key Lab of Microwave and Digital Communication, the Institute of Communication was incorporated by the former Communication Teaching and Research Group in November 1999. It now has 26 faculty members, including 12 professors, 6 associate professors, and 8 lecturers and engineers. The Institute of Communications is subordinate to a second-level discipline of the Department of Electronic Engineering: Communication and Information System (its first-level discipline is Information and Communication Engineering). The Communication and Information System discipline was selected as a key discipline of the State Education Commission in 1987, and was rated as a key discipline of the Ministry of Education in 2002 and 2007. The first-level discipline Information and Communication Engineering ranks first in the country.

Taking modern communication theory and technology as the discipline development direction, the Institute of Communication cultivates high-level special talents in the communication field, who have solid theoretical foundation, abundant knowledge, independent views and high innovation ability and are good at combining theory with practice to meet the urgent needs of rapid development of China's communication industry for high-quality special talents. The Institute of Communications now undertakes 12 undergraduate courses and 17 postgraduate courses. The Institute is provided with the postdoctoral research station and about 4-5 postdoctoral fellows begin to work at the postdoctoral research station every year. Nearly 30-40 doctoral students and about 70 master students are recruited every year. The Institute of Communication undertakes a number of national, ministerial, enterprise sponsored and international cooperative scientific research projects every year. It has chaired and participated in the formulation of national and international standards in the field of communication and broadcasting, integrated scientific research into the teaching and talent cultivation process, and formed a virtuous cycle of scientific research improving teaching quality and teaching promoting research work.

With the close integration of the urgent needs of China's national economic construction and national defense construction as well as the trend of future technology development, the Institute of Communication has conducted fruitful scientific research in some important fields of communication, and formed the following research directions:
