Introduction to the School of Electronic Information
Giving full play to the strategic advantages of implementing the “Internet +” plan by the state and Hunan province, the advantage in new era of “internet plus”, big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence information technology, and the location advantage in Changsha, the school is striving to cultivate high-quality application-oriented electronic information talents who are not only mentally and physically healthy, but also developing in all aspects, particularly excellent in profession. It has “double first-class” applied characteristic subject - Information and Communication Engineering. Six majors are provided for undergraduates, including Electronic Information Engineering, Communication Engineering, Automation, Software Engineering, Network Engineering, Internet of Things Engineering, and four majors for junior college students, including Electrical Automation Technology, Electronic Information Engineering Technology, Computer Network Technology and Software Technology. Among them, Software Engineering is honored as the pioneering major for comprehensive reform.
The school has a full-time faculty headed by professors and doctors who once taught in National University of Defence Technology, supporting by young and middle-aged professors and doctors. The members are reasonable in the team’s educational background, professional title, specialty and age structure.

The school has 47 professional laboratories for cloud computing and big data, Internet of Things technology, communication technology, sensor technology, intelligent building and PCB design and production. More than 500 well-known enterprises (parks) such as Beidou Satellite Navigation Simulation and Testing (Changsha) Laboratory,other electronic companies and Software Park carry out “order-based” training and implement Excellent Talents Training Program which is called the “Software Engineering Speciality Experimental Class”. Meanwhile, the school has been in cooperation with first-class enterprises to establish Hunan Research School of Information Technology.
The school has established the incubation center of innovation and entrepreneurship and actively carries out innovation and entrepreneurship education on the platform of the innovation and entrepreneurship education base of electronic information and computing majors, which is the provincial level. In recent years, more than 3000 students have participated in the “internet plus” College Students’ innovation and entrepreneurship competition, the National College Students’ electronic design competition and the “Blue Bridge Cup” national software talent design and entrepreneurship competition.
