published: 2019-01-03 17:44:22       hits: 

Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline related to the research and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetics. It includes electricity, electronics, circuits, control and communications. It is an indispensable key discipline in today's high-tech fields. For nearly forty years, under the integrated and cross-functional roles of information and communication engineering, control science and engineering, it has become one of the core disciplines in modern science and technology. UESTC conforms to the national energy development strategy and relies on the comprehensive advantages of electronic information, including the wide-area measurement and control of power systems, smart grids, power electronics and power transmission, and new types of power generation and energy storage. As a special feature, it has achieved a large number of high-level scientific research achievements and laid a good foundation for cultivating high-caliber, multi-functional, and international high-end electrical engineering talents.

1.   Objectives

The discipline is positioned to cultivate in the field of electrical engineering, especially in power and control, circuits and systems, power information and communications, with solid basic theory and system expertise, master of electrical engineering and computer applications high-tech talent. Master degree holders should understand the academic status and direction of development in the relevant research areas in China and abroad, have the ability to independently analyze and solve specific technical problems in the subject, have a good international perspective and international communication skills. Students would also be proficient in Chinese. With rigorous and realistic scientific attitude and style of work, courage to innovate and pioneering consciousness and good professional qualities, the students can be competent in related research, teaching, engineering technology development and management in the field of electrical engineering.

2.   Orientations

1. Power System Analysis and Control

2. Power Transformation and Active Distribution Network

3. Advanced Transmission and Conversion Technology

4. Intelligent Monitoring and Diagnosis of Electrical Equipment

5. Motor System and Control

6. Power and Energy Economy

3.   Duration

The duration set for master candidates is 2 years full-time. An extension can be applied for by those who cannot finish their courses in time owing to objective causes, yet altogether 4 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.
