The Research Institute of Electronic Science and Technology (RIEST in short) was established in 2003 as a special scientific research institute under the request of the University of Electronic Science and Technology to develop into a high-level research university. The institute mainly undertakes important key scientific and engineering projects and small amount but a variety of make-to-order production as well as the postgraduate education. The establishment of the Institute of Electronic Science and Technology is a significant innovation of the University of Electronic Science and Technology in the expansion of the scientific industry, the exploration of the scientific research prospect and the reform of its mechanism.
Since its establishment in 2003, RIEST has implemented the development policy of "from null to be real, from real to professional, from professional to be strong" and stuck to the development principles of regarding the scientific research as the core, the production as the base, quality as the life, and relying on the school, facing society, broadly pooling resources, widely recruiting talents, not pursuing everything, but taking full advantage of everything; to form its own features and advantages. Through innovative management and flexible operation mechanism, depending on the school's brand and resources, as well as the integration of external resources in schools, strengthening the cooperation with research institutes, basing on the construction of basic conditions, together with undertaking large-scale integrated projects, RIEST is gradually on the growth. It has quickly gone through the process of "from scratch, from null to be real", and more to people’s surprise, RIEST has access to an important stage of development, which means that it has taken solid steps in strategic development phase -"From implementation to profession". Up to August 2009, the scale of the development of scientific research and production staff reached two hundred people, among whom there are 18 senior technical titles, 12 intermediate technical titles, 26 Doctors. (including in-service PhD), 12 part-time professors (8 Doctoral Supervisors). They have become the leading science and technology work forces of University of Electronic Science and Technology
Since its establishment in 2003, RIEST has gradually condensed three technical directions: integrated electronic technology, SIP system technology, security and information technology; including radar simulation, integrated electronic systems, navigation technologies, SOC chip design, LTCC production, microwave millimeter wave components, network monitoring, wireless audio and video, wireless monitoring and other technique fields, which truly becomes a school converging various subjects, and a platform for scientific research. With the continuous development of scientific research work, the increasing of research projects year by year, we have altogether undertaken more than 60 types of research projects, and the amount of research funds excesses 68 million than the total accumulated funds. After several years of accumulation, in the fields of radar, warning and detection, navigation, surveillance and targeting, microwave millimeter wave devices and components, T / R components and test systems, LTCC chip capacitors and filters, digital integrated circuits, IC design and high-tech engineering transformation projects, we have made a great achievement. Our institute has achieved more than 12 provincial or ministerial appraisal results, most of the projects reached the international advanced level, some technology is on the world's top list; and gained both provincial and ministerial awards; what’s more we also received 29 patents for inventions and licensing.
Not only is RIEST a significant scientific research institution, but also a base for the university to cultivate innovative postgraduate talents, which sets up a professional Postgraduate Training Office so as to take initiative to explore the mode of postgraduate training with RIEST’s own characteristics. That is to receive the most excellent postgraduates into the subject practice, take active in creating some conditions to instruct them to complete the undergraduate graduation project, to employ flexible and incentive mechanism to manage our postgraduates as official employees, to specially set up the RIEST scholarship in order to award those who has done quite well in various fields in spite of the college scholarship, be active in creating some conditions to provide opportunity for them to take part in the domestic and international academic exchanges, to offer financial aid as well as praise to the theses of high level, to establish a set of complete system of cultivation and management to make sure of the quality of training, to improve postgraduates’ scientific research ability through the seamless connection between scientific research and production.
By August 2009, the postgraduates taking internships or working at our institute had exceeded 180 and became the ultimate strength of the scientific research of the RIEST. These students enjoy wide popularity among our domestic industry’s counterparts and companies upon graduation with a 100% employment rate.
Our institute recruits postgraduates with a background in Circuits and Systems, Microelectronics and Solid State Electronics, Computer Applications Technology, Electronics Science and Technology, Signal and Information Processing, Communication and Information Systems, Electromagnetic Field and Microwave Technology, etc. With the expansion of our enrollment plan, our recruited postgraduates had reached 200 in September 2009. Meanwhile, we have taken a solid progress in education with a steady increase in the overall quality of our postgraduates.
The vast sky allows the birds to soar freely and the broad sea has the fish leap without constraint. Owning the excellent platform of scientific research, experiments, production and talents, RIEST will never stop the step to make innovation and keep forging forward as well as get development. And it gradually shoulders the responsibility to foster the talents, extend the courses, gather the courses, innovate the system of science and technology and enhance its social impact. We bid our warmest welcome to the students working on professional research and study to show your talent here in RIEST.
