Brief Introduction of School of Electrical and Automation Engineering

School of NARI Electrical and Automation Engineering (SNEA) of Nanjing Normal University (NNU) was early established in 1954, and focuses on specialties of both electrical engineering and control science and engineering. There are two departments of Electrical Engineering and Automation, and Electrical Engineering Training Center. At present, the school of Electrical and Automation Engineering has a united team of 103 faculty staffs, in which there are 67 full-time academic teachers and 22 lab teachers, including 13 professors, 29 associate professors and 13 senior lab teachers. Amongst, there are 33 doctors and 16 masters, as well as excellent teachers such as 3 of 333 Academic Leader of Jiangsu Province, 6 of Six Category High Talents of Jiangsu Province, 1 team of Six Category High Talents of Jiangsu Province and 7 of Excellent Young Teachers of Jiangsu Province.

In graduate education, there are first-grade discipline master program of Electrical Engineering, second-grade discipline master program of Control Theory and Control Engineering, and Professional Master Degree program of Electrical Engineering. Registered full-time graduates are about 200. Wherein, the program of Electrical Engineering mainly includes 4 second-grade disciplines, such as Power System and Automation, Power Electronics and Power Transmission, Electric Theory and New Technology and Electrical Machines and Apparatus.

In undergraduate education, there are 2 majors of Electrical Engineering and Automation, Automation. Registered full-time undergraduates are about 1200. Both majors of Electrical Engineering and Automation and Automation were evaluated as Featured Majors of Jiangsu Province in 2010 and 2012, respectively, and were further chosen as electrical category key major of Jiangsu Province in 2012. Electrical Engineering Training Center was evaluated as Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center of Jiangsu Province in 2015. Moreover, SNEA has successfully conducted international cooperation bachelor education program with Northumbria University in the UK, for the major of Electrical Engineering and Automation since 2004.

SNEA has a number of interdisciplinary research facilities including 3 provincial scientific research laboratories and 2 university key institutes. They are 3D Printing and Equipment Manufacturing Key Laboratory of Jiangsu Province, Electrical Equipment EMC Engineering Laboratory of Jiangsu Province, Engineering Laboratory of Gas-Electricity Integrated Energy of Jiangsu Province, Electrical Engineering Institute of NNU, and Information and Control Engineering Technology Institute of NNU, as well as 1 excellent graduate workstation and 14 graduate workstations of Jiangsu Province. In the past 5 years, SNEA have undertaken some research projects form the National Natural Science Fund, ministerial and provincial-level research fund and bureau-level scientific research fund. More than 300 research papers and 30 scholarly monographs have been published. 31 inventor patents and 90 utility model patents were authorized by State Intellectual Property Office. And SNEA also has provided many social technology services for practical industrial applications.

In “13th Five Periods”, SNEA will focus on modifying electrical specialty structure and training academic leaders and aiming at the building of distinguished feature college, by implementing the five key strategies of discipline leading development, talent developing college, indomitable researching spirit, cultivating innovative talents and distinguished feature college, so as to become an international influential and distinct teaching and researching school in engineering education.
