Electrical engineering and automation is a national characteristic major, automation is a provincial key (characteristic) major, and both of them have passed the international engineering education professional certification. Electrical engineering and intelligent control, building electrical and intelligent, robotics engineering, and rail transit signal and control are 4 new majors established for the development requirements of national strategic industries and regional new industries. In the past six years, students have won 272 prizes (156 national prizes) at the provincial level or above, such as the first prize in the national “Challenge Cup”, the silver prize in the national “Internet +”, the championship in the National Robotics Competition, the Meritorious Winner in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling, the first prize in the National Post-Graduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling, and so on.
Relying on the doctoral program of the first-class discipline of Information and Communication Engineering and the master's program of the first-class discipline of Control Science and Engineering, the college carries out graduate education. Control Science and Engineering, which is a dominant discipline in Jiangsu province, is a provincial key discipline cultivation point, and a doctoral degree authorized cultivation discipline. The college owns Jiangsu Province “Key Laboratory of New Energy Equipment and Intelligent Measurement and Control”. The college has 3 central and local jointly establish laboratories including “Control System Experimental Center”, “Electrical Engineering Experimental Center”, and “Energy and Traffic Control Technology Experimental Center”. The college participates in 2 central and local co-constructed laboratories of Internet + Electronic and Electrical Information Professional Teaching Practice Platform, New Energy and Equipment Discipline Construction and Innovation Research Base; the college also owns Provincial Engineering Technology Research Center Jiangsu Province Wind Energy Application Technology, Chinese-British Jiangsu Province Renewable Energy Research Center, Key Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence Technology and Applied Research in Nantong, Key Laboratory of Advanced Servo Control Technology in Nantong, and Smart Manufacturing and Control Technology for Advanced Manufacturing Robots in Nantong Service platform. The college established the scientific and technological innovation base of the Electrical Engineering Technology Research Center and four school-level institutes of electrical engineering, system science, marine electrical, robotics and their control technology. The laboratory area of the college is more than 4,000 square meters. The Electrical and Electronic Experiment Center is the provincial basic course experimental teaching demonstration center and the Jiangsu Province electrician and electronics experimental teaching demonstration center. The Electrical Engineering Discipline Training Center is the Jiangsu Experimental Teaching and Practice Education Center. The production process control laboratory is listed as Nantong Production ProcessComputer Control Application Technology Service Center. In addition, the college has more than 10 professional laboratories. The college has also co-established the Jiangsu Electric Motor Energy Efficiency Rating and Fault Diagnosis Public Service Center, Jiangsu Special Motor Iron Core Engineering Technology Research Center, and Ministry of Education Tianhuang Teaching Instrument Industry-University-University Cooperative Education Project Demonstration Base and many engineering research centers in Jiangsu Province, Jiangsu Science and Technology Support Platform, Jiangsu Enterprise Graduate Workstation, etc.
The school has established a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, including control, electrical, mathematics, computer, electronics, transportation, electromechanical, measurement and control and other disciplines. The interdisciplinary integration has formed a joint force. In the fields of robotics and control, network control, new energy generation and control, comprehensive analysis of complex systems such as generalized systems, medical informatics, artificial intelligence, industrial system optimization, new brake theory and its application, power system and automation, organization, scheduling and control of complex transportation system and other fields, effective research has been carried out around important scientific issues, basic application issues, and technical application issues.
