Electronic Science and Technology is the leading-edge discipline of information science and technology. Based on modern physics and mathematics, it studies the movement of electrons and photons and their interaction in different media. It also studies various electronic materials and components, information optoelectronic materials and devices, integrated circuits and integrated electronic systems. As aninter disciplinary subject, its curriculumaims at the cultivation ofhigh-quality students with a solid academic foundation,wide knowledgeand strong practical abilities.This major was started in the Institute of Piezoelectric Ferroelectric Ceramic Materials in1970s. Anditsresearch results of "piezoelectric ceramic booster transformer" won the second-level National Prizefor Progress inScience and Technology. In 1991, the major of Electronic Science and Technology was formally established. Aftermore than two decades’ development, it hasranked among thebranddisciplines as well as the characteristic disciplinesin Hubei Provinceand is authorized to set up posts for Chutian Scholars.It offers doctoral program of the second level discipline of Nano-materials and Devices, and masterprogram of first level discipline of Electronic Science and Technology.It hold sseveral high-levelresearch and teaching platforms including The Provincial Key Laboratory of Ferroelectric Piezoelectric Materials and Devices, The Research and Development and Promotion Center of Electronic Functional Materials for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises in Hubei Province,The Key Base of Independent Innovation for Colleges and Universities in Hubei Province for Energy Information Materials.This major boasts of a strong and experienced faculty and outstanding scientific research strength, with a number of Chutian scholars and scholarsenjoying domestic or world fameas distinguished professors.
This major adopts tutorial system in the training of undergraduate talents,emphasizing theirinnovative ability and practical abilities.
