History
The Department of Electro-Optics Technology established in August 2001 with a 2-year college cultivated the electro-optics technology practical talents. The Department of Electro-Optics Technology was renamed as the Department of Electro-Optical Engineering in August 2003. The Institute of Electro-Optics Technology was renamed as the Master Program of Electro-Optical Engineering. In the same year, the Doctoral Program of Electro-Optical Engineering was inspected and established by the Ministry of Education to cultivate professional talents with practical and development capacity of electro-optics technology.  Our faculty comes from a broad range of important specialty fields such as optical communications, flat panel display, optoelectronic material and devices, optical engineering, nano/bio optics and photonics, optical information processing .
 
This department now has 20 full-time faculty members, including 13 Professors, 3 Associate Professors, 4 Assistant Professors. Each year the department admits about 40 undergraduates, 60 students to the master program and 8 students to the Doctoral program. Our department aims to equip students with adequate knowledge and skills required in this field to meet the local industrial needs.
