School of Automation and Electric Engineering

The School of Automation and Electric Engineering (herein refer to School of AEE hereafter) originated from the former Department of Information and Electric Engineering, one of the earliest departments set up in the college.

School of AEE is the key unit of construction under the joint programs between Chinese and German governments. Experiencing years of successful international cooperation and accomplishments in facilities construction, the School laid a sound foundation for teaching and scientific research. It is now on the path of harmonious development. The rapid growth in educational dimensions at the school, together with its promotion in teaching quality and fruitful development of research work are witnessed in recent years. For instance, Theories of Cybernetics and Cybernetic Engineering of the school was taken as the key subject (B) of Zhejiang province in 2004. A well-structured teaching and research team with notable academic capabilities is coming into being.

At present, with the total staff number of 41, there are 5 professors, 12 associate professors, 15 lecturers and engineers in the School of AEE. Among them, 3 teachers received doctoral degree, 27 received master’s degree, and 8 teachers have experience studying in Germany.

Enhancing international exchanges, conducting international cooperation in teachings, developing globalization and application-oriented engineering personnel are the aims of the school as well as its features. Under the leadership of the college, the school opens “2+3” joint teaching program with Hannover University of Applied Science and Arts and Braunschweig/Wolfenbüttel, “4+2” program with Die Christian-Albrechts-Universit?t zu Kiel and the school also exchanges students with Hochschule fuer Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden and many other education institutions in Germany, allowing students of both sides to practice and design in the counterpart units.
