Research Institutes

The Institute of Information Systems is subordinate to the first-level discipline of information and communication engineering (national key first-level discipline), including two second-level disciplines, namely, communication and information systems (national key second-level discipline) and information networks and complex systems. The Institute has developed three distinctive and advantageous research directions, namely, navigation and positioning, detection and sensing, and network collaboration, which have significant influence in the domestic and international academic and industrial communities.

The Institute has 21 faculty members, more than 150 doctoral and master's degree students, and more than 20 postdoctoral fellows. The Institute enrolls more than 20 doctoral and master's degree students every year, undertakes the teaching of more than 20 undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and presides over and participates in the compilation of a number of textbooks such as Introduction to Machine Learning, Digital Signal Analysis and Processing, and Stochastic Processes and Their Applications. In recent years, it has cultivated a wide range of socialist-minded and professionally competent talents including 2 national outstanding doctoral thesis winners, 1 national outstanding postdoctoral fellow, and 1 national excellent instructor.

In recent years, the Institute has undertaken and completed a large number of scientific research and technological research projects from the state, ministries and enterprises, and has made a number of major breakthroughs in the technical system and core technologies, published a number of high-quality academic papers, and won dozens of national, provincial and ministerial awards including the first prize of national invention.
