Established in 1920, College of Electrical Engineering (CEE), with Department of Electrical Engineering as its predecessor, was one of the earliest founded departments of such kind in China.
The College, located at Yuquan campus of Zhejiang University, comprises of Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Dept. of System Science and Engineering, Dept. of Applied Electronics, and Education Center of Electrical and Electronics Technology as well. There are 3 undergraduate programs in the College, Electrical Engineering and its Automation, Automation, and Electronic Information Engineering. In respect of graduate education, two first-level disciplines are currently available, Electrical Engineering, and Control Science and Engineering. Of them, Electrical Engineering was among the first group to be enlisted as the national first-level key disciplines, and included in the national key projects such as Project 211 and Project 985. In the year of 2017, the discipline of Electrical Enginerring was selected into the list of the country's construction plan of first-class disciplines.
The College has since 1920 graduated over 25,000 engineers into the Electrical Engineering and the general engineering field, conferring a total of 19313 bachelor degrees, 5219 master’s degrees and 870 doctoral degrees. There are also 156 post-doctoral researchers having finished their study in the College. In addition, 22 Members of Chinese Academy of Science and Chinese Academy of Engineering have either studied or worked in the College. The College has currently enrolled a total of 1457 registered full-time undergraduate students, 1259 master’s students (645 students of M. Eng are included), 367 doctoral students, and 40 postdoctoral researchers.
The College is rich of resources both in teaching and research. Among the 187 faculty and staff members, there are 57 professors. Its faculty members with PhD degree account for more than 85%. It is empowered with not only the famous senior professors such as Professor WANG Yousheng, one of the earliest academicians of Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Professor HAN Zhenxiang, academician of Chinese Academy of Science and the ex-president of Zhejiang University, but also young and middle-aged academic elites like Professor SONG Yonghua, guest professor of Zhejiang University, president of the University of Macau, fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering, and fellow IEEE, and Prof XIA Changliang, the QIUSHI Chair professor of Zhejiang University, and academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering. At the same time, outstanding young teachers of the EE College have witnessed a rapid growth of recipients of the chief scientists of the National Basic Research Program (973), the National Thousand Young Talents Program, and the NSFC for Excellent Young Scholars. A total of over 30 renowned academicians or fellows including ZHOU Xiaoxin, CHENG Shijie, MA Weiming, LUO An, Barry Williams, Tim Green join the College either as part-time professors or chair professors.
The College currently consists of 8 institutes, nourished with the following research and education centers, National Key Laboratory of Power Electronics, National Engineering Center for Applied Power Electronics, Electrical and Electronic Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center, Experimental Teaching Center for Mechanical and Electrical Institute (jointly established), Edison Experimental Class- an innovation pilot program for outstanding EE undergraduate educaiton, National Engineering Research Centre for Small & Special Precision Motors (jointly established), Natioanl Train Intelligent Engineering Research Center (jointly established), and Zhejiang Province Marine Renewable Energy Electrical Equipment and System Technology Research larboratroy.
The College is, and will always commit itself in education and research to striving for a world-class college in the world.
