Huazhong University of Science and Technology(HUST)is a national key university and directly belongs to the Ministry of Education. It is one of the first universities included in the national " Project 211 " key construction and national " Project 985 " construction. It is among the first batch of national "Double First-Class" universities in 2017. The school covers more than 7,000 acres and is located on the bank of East Lake in the core area of China's Optics Valley. With beautiful campus environment and large amount of green trees, the university has a greening rate of 72% and is known as a "forest-style university." The adjacent ‘East Lake Green Road’ has created a world-class leisure and fitness ‘backyard garden’ for teachers and students.
The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (SEEE) of HUSTwas founded in 1952. In all previous first-level discipline evaluation by the Ministry of Education, the rank of electrical engineering discipline of this school is always among the top three in China. In 2017, it was selected as one of the first batch of “double first-class” construction disciplines by the country.
The school has strong faculty and has formed a high-level academic team with clear research directions and balanced research forces in all research areas. There are 78 professors and 71 associate professors, including 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering,2 national-level teaching teams, 2 innovation teams of the Ministry of Education, and 1 innovation team in the key areas of the Ministry of Science and Technology.
The school has established Department of Electrical and Control Engineering, Department of Electrical Power Engineering, Department of High Voltage Engineering, Department of Applied Electronic Engineering, Department of Electrician Theory and Advanced Electromagnetic Technology, Institute of Fusion and Plasma, Institute of Applied Electromagnetic Engineering, National Electrical and Electronic Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center (Electrical), and National Electrical Electronic Engineering Basic Course Teaching Base (Electrical)
The main research directions of the school cover the entire process of production, transmission, application, transformation, detection, control, dispatching and management of electric energy. Moreover, it has also developed numbers of new frontier disciplines, such as electrical energy storage, pulse power, pulsed magnetic fields, magnetic confinement fusion, plasma medicine, accelerators and their applications, advanced electrical materials and devices, which have formed the widest range of electrical engineering disciplines in domestic research.
The college has the most complete scientific research and innovation platform in the domestic electrical disciplines. It has a national major science and technology infrastructure, a national key laboratory, a joint laboratory for international cooperation. Among them, the Pulsed High Magnetic Field Facility (PHMFF) is the only national major science and technology infrastructure in China's electrical engineering disciplines, and it has become one of the best pulsed magnetic field facilities in the world; the Joint Laboratory for International Cooperation in Fusion and Electromagnetic Technology owns the only large and medium-sized Tokamak J-TEXT among domestic universities, which is a training and basic research base for magnetic confinement fusion talents recognized by the Ministry of Education; it has the only national new-type motor national specialized laboratory; and it also has several provincial and ministerial key laboratories and engineering research centers with research areas of electric power safety, new-type motors, pulse power, and ship power, etc.
The school put the quality of talent training first. The school is one of the first batch authorized units of master's programs, doctoral programs, post-doctoral mobile stations, and first-level discipline doctoral programs in China. There are more than 1,700 undergraduate students and more than 1,000 graduate students. The quality of talent training has been highly recognized by the society. Each year, there are over one million social scholarships set up by companies, and hundreds of special job fair for graduates.
The school has undertaken a number of important national research tasksWith more than 200 million RMB research funding each year in recent five years, it has been authorized more than 350 national invention patents, 6 European and US patents, published more than 600 SCI papers, and 7 ESI hot papers. It has also obtained 1 first prize and 4 second prizes of the National Science and Technology Progress Award.
The academic exchanges of school are active. Multi teachers serve in significant science and technology consulting qualification committee such as the National Major Science and Technology Infrastructure Planning Committee, the National Major Special Expert Committee, and the International Strong Magnetic Field Association. The school has established long-term and deep cooperative relations with more than 20 scientific research institutions including Princeton University, National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (USA), the Max Planck institute for plasma physics (Germany) , the controlled fusion institute of French Atomic Energy Commission, and was invited to participate in the ITPA international joint experiment. The school has jointly undertaken seven Sino-U.S. fusion cooperation projects jointly organized by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology and the U.S. Department of Energy.
All teachers and students of the school aim to build a world-class electrical engineering discipline. With the development of high-tech electrical engineering and electric power technology as the leading factor, they condense the directions of the discipline, gather research teams, build academic bases, alcoholize the academic atmosphere, unite and be pragmatic, seek truth and innovation to create a better future for electrical engineering disciplines.
