University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) (Chinese: 电子科技大学)

Renowned as the cradle for China’s electronics industry, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) was established (formerly as Chengdu Institute of Radio Engineering) in 1956 under the instruction of Premier Zhou Enlai, by incorporating electronics-allied departments of Shanghai Jiaotong University, Southeast University (the then Nanjing Institute of Technology) and South China University of Technology. At the time, these three institutions had already absorbed all electronics-allied departments and divisions south of the Yangtze River through the 1952 Reorganisation of Higher Education in China.

Built on the MIT model, UESTC is an electronics-centred multidisciplinary leading research university in China, currently enrolling over 10,000 research students and over 13,000 undergraduates in 13 Schools:

  • School of Applied Mathematics
  • School of Automation Engineering
  • School of Communication and Information Engineering
  • School of Computer Science and Engineering
  • School of Electronic Engineering
  • School of Life Science and Technology
  • School of Mechatronics Engineering
  • School of Micro- and Solid-State Electronics
  • School of Optoelectronics
  • School of Physical Electronics

which cover all of the 6 National Key Disciplines specified for higher education in electronics and information science in China, with multidisciplinary extensions and enhancements including Mathematics, Physics, Life Sciences, and Public and Business Administration:

  • School of Economics, Finance and Management
  • School of Political Science and Public Administration
  • School of Foreign Languages

In addition, there is a cross-disciplinary research institute: Institute of Aerospace Science and Technology. There also exists an international college: School for International Education, which is dedicated to facilitating trans-national education. UESTC currently has co-training agreements in place with over 40 overseas institutions, such as Purdue University, University of Glasgow and University of Minnesota in the World Top 100 University League[1]. At various levels, UESTC collaborates with more than 300 overseas institutions and enterprises of over 20 countries[2].

UESTC's students come from all over China and internationally. Its graduates are constantly in extraordinarily high demand and its graduates:jobs ratio is sustained at between 1:8 and 1:9 in the Chinese job market. While a high proportion of UESTC graduates stay on to do research for a Master's degree, about 30% of the graduates are recruited to Pearl River Delta, the fast growing electronics design and manufacturing centre of China. Similarly, a high proportion of UESTC Master's graduates stay on to do a PhD, about 12% of the Masters are recruited to Shenzhen alone, and 8.3% are recruited to Shanghai - the resurgent economic and financial centre of China.[3].
