published: 2019-01-03 09:53:00       hits: 

Information and Communciation Engineering of UESTC is the national key discipline, which constitued by 2 sub-disciplines, Communication and Information System, Signal and Information Processing. The disciplines related to Information and Communication Engineering of UESTC are the first batch of disciplines which were authorized to confer doctoral degree and to establish postdoctoral position, and also the first batch of Project 211, Project 985, Double First-Class key disciplines. The discipline was ranked as 2nd in National Discipline Evaluation from Ministry of Education in 2012 and was accredited as A+ in the fourth round of National Discipline Evaluation from Ministry of Education in 2017. The school has 2 academicians of Chinese Academy of Engineering, 8 awardees of National Thousand Talents Program, 2 National Renowned Professors, 5 awardees of Cheung Kong Scholars Program, 2 awardees of National Natural Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars, 9 awardees of Thousand Talent Program for Young Outstanding Scientists and 1 awardees of National Youth Top-notch Talent Support Program. The research team of this discipline enjoys a good reputation both at home and abroad. The discipline has many international first-class academic research and talents cultivation platforms such as National key laboratories, Ministry key laboratories and Overseas Expertise Introduction Project for Discipline Innovation.

The research fields of this discipline are closely related with those of Electronics Science and Technology, Computer Science and Technology, Control Science and Engineering, Instruments Science and Technology.

1.   Objectives

Masters of the discipline are expected to have a rather profound knowledge of the cutting-edge research and trend of the field and a relatively sound grasp of the theoretical and systematic expertise, as are able to master corresponding experimental skills, to be proficient in the use of computers, familiar with at least one simulation software closely related to this discipline, to know the new technology and development trend in a certain field of information and communication engineering at home and abroad and to solve the academic or technical issues innovatively, able to contribute academic papers and exchange views in conferences, and to demonstrate rigorous spirits in scientific approaches and working style and professional ethics, so as to be competent in research, development, teaching or management jobs at research institutes and universities.

A Survey of Chinaand Comprehensive Chinese are compulsory for international master candidates who, on graduation, are to be able to communicate in Chinese to some extent.

2.   Orientations

1)        Wireless and Mobile Communication System

2)        Anti-jamming and Secure Communication System

3)        Radar Detection and Imaging Recognition

4)        Intelligent Communication Network and Information Processing

5)        Optical Fiber Sensing and Communication

6)        Image and Video Processing

7)        Communication Integrated Circuit and System

8)        Intelligent Perception and Information System

9)        Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

10)    Signal and Information Intelligent Processing

3.   Duration

The duration set for master candidates is two years full-time. An extension can be applied for by those who cannot finish their courses in time owing to objective causes, yet altogether four years is the last due.

4.   Progression and Requirements

The minimum sum total credits for international students of master candidates are 26. Master candidates should complete the course work of no less than a total of 24 credits (out of which at least 15 credits should be acquired from degree courses), compulsory sections of no less than 2 credits, complete the thesis independently, and pass the degree thesis defense.

The supervisor responsibility mechanism is adopted in the education for international master candidates. The supervisor is responsible for the student’s making of personal study plan, the choice of courses, and the completion of the degree thesis. The personal study plan cannot be changed without permission of the supervisor.

During the course work, according to specifications by the discipline, the student is to pass examinations held for the degree courses and examinations or assessments held for the other optional courses. Of all the degree courses, common core courses are compulsory. Master candidates are allowed to choose 1~2 inter-disciplinary core courses as their degree courses under supervisors’ guidance. Degree courses can be taken to substitute non-degree courses, but not vice versa. International students of Chinese language abilities can apply to take courses given in Chinese to local full-time graduate students and acquire corresponding credits if pass.

Those who fail to meet the requirements as described above can fill up the gap by repetition or make-up in the limit of one year. Those who fail to meet the credit requirements even till the end of the due time are to be terminated.
