Internation Academic Exchange and Cooperation
In 2007, the Wisdom Absorption Base of Modern Wireless Information Network Basic Theory and Technology Discipline Innovation (National “111” Project Base) was established in the School of Telecommunications Engineering. The school, relying on its national key disciplines of Communication & Information System, Cryptography, the National “111” Project Base, the State Key Laboratory of ISN, the Ministry of Education Key Laboratory of Computer Network and Information Security, has carried out extensive academic exchanges and cooperation in frontier disciplines.
Currently, the school has established academic exchanges and cooperation with universities and research institutions in the United States, South Korea, Japan, France, Britain, Hong Kong and other countries and regions through joint application of major projects, collaborative research, sponsored advanced seminar, sponsored or co-organized international and domestic academic conferences. It has established friendly relations and cooperation with the University of Kent (Britain), Chungbuk National University (South Korea), and Yuan Ze University (Taiwan). The school hired Professor J. L. Massey (member of the United States National Academy of Engineering and the Royal Swedish Academy), Professor Shu Lin from the University of California, Davis, and Professor Li Shuoyan from the the Chinese University of Hong Kong as Honorary Professors. Professor Kang G. Shin from the University of Michigan was employed as the master of the Wisdom Absorption Base of Modern Wireless Information Network Basic Theory and Technology Discipline Innovation (National “111” Project Base), and experts from the University of Toronto, Waterloo University, the University of Kent and other universities and research institutions were hired as the academic backbone of the National “111” Project Base. In addition, Professor Fang Yuguang, the tenured professor at the University of Florida, and Professor Yang Weihao from the Chinese University of Hong Kong are the Yangtse River Scholar professors. Each year, the school invites more than 20 internationally renowned experts and scholars to give lectures, sends over 50 teachers to be visiting scholars in foreign universities or to attend international conferences, and produces more than 10 PhD students in joint training programs with foreign universities.
The School of Telecommunications Engineering successfully applied for one project and two surface projects of the National Natural Science Foundation Program together with overseas scholars, and Sino-UK Science Bridges Program with six British universities, including Heriot-Watt University and the University of Southampton.
The seminars and international conferences held or co-organized by the School of Telecommunications Engineering are:
- ISPEC 2009
- IEEE China COM 2009
- IEEE ICCSN 2011
- 2010 China-Korea Joint Conference on Information and Communications
- Cross-Strait Young Scientists Electronic Information Symposium
- The First and Second National Conference of Computer Network and Information Security
- The Annual Conference of China Information Theory Society (2010)
- The First and Second Symposium of the National “111” Project Base
We also invite overseas scholars to give lectures on Doctoral Research Methods; host the 2008 National Graduate “Information and Communications Engineering” summer school.
