The college comprises three major groups of disciplines—of Computer Science and Technology, Agriculture Engineering, Electrical Engineering, including five departments of Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, Geographic Information Engineering and Control Engineering, plus one Electrical Information Experiment Center, with seven undergraduate discipline, eleven disciplines for master candidates, and three disciplines for doctoral candidates. Additionally, it has one key laboratory of Ministry of Education (Key Laboratory on Modern Precision Agriculture System Integration Research), one key laboratory of Ministry of Agriculture (Information Acquisition Technology), two Beijing Engineer Research Center (including Operation and Control Technology of Smart Microgrid), one Beijing Model School Innovation Practice Base, and“Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering’s Science and Education Professional Committee of Agricultural Electricity Branch Committee”、“State Grid Corporation of China’s Agricultural Electricity New Technology Training Center”and“Association of Fundamental Computing Education in Chinese Universities’ Agriculture Professional Branch Committee”, Computer Center of CAU are affiliated to the college.
Relying on multiple institutes based on three platforms with scientific innovation—Electrical and New Energy Power Generation Technical Research Center, Electronic and Automation Technical Research Center and Agriculture Informatics Technical Research Center, the college has undertaken several important scientific research projects, such as national “863” and “973”projects, national natural science fund, national scientific supporting plan, international cooperation programs and science & technology conversion fund, with the yearly research funds and scientific achievements of over 50 million RMB and 30 million RMB, respectively.
CIEE has established partnership with many Universities, Institutes, International Organizations and Business Associations in the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Russia, etc., and has actively cultivated a worldwide network for academic exchange and cooperation. The college have already signed MOU with 13 overseas institutions, including State University of New York in USA, University of Melbourne in Australia, Intelligent Systems Research Institute, National Inst. Of AIST in Japan, Chungnam University in Korea, Agricultural University of Athens in Greece, National University of Sciences and Technology Islamabad in Pakistan, Washington State University in USA etc. China Development Forum and International Conference on Smart Agriculture Innovative Development has already been held for three years By CIEE. Every year, about more than 300 specialists and scholars from all over the world come to Beijing to discuss about the development about smart agriculture, with more than 100 pieces of paper were published.
Over the past few years, the college of Information and Electrical Engineering, with CAU’s motto of Unity, Simple, Seeking and Innovation and the tasks of teaching and research at the core, has stuck to the mission of specialists cultivation, playing a great role in the field of innovation, culture inheritance and social service; whilst in the future, with the primary task of scientific development and the motive force of reform and innovation, the college will seize the historical opportunity of development in information and energy science and technology, making great efforts on its transformation and further contribution to China's economic growth and modernization.
