About The School of Instrument Science and Engineering

The School of Instrument Science and Engineering was founded in September 2006, but originated in 1960, and has been offering graduate programs since 1961. It was separated from the Department of Automatic Control in May 1992 to catch up the rapid development of the Instrument Science and Technology, which has been considered as one of the traditional and featured disciplines in Southeast University. The school was authorized to offer Master of Engineering (M.E.) degrees in “Precision Instrumentation and Machinery” and “Measurement Technique and Instrument” by the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council in 1981 and 1984, respectively. It was also authorized to offer Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in “Precision Instrumentation and Machinery” in 1990. In 1998, the School of Instrument Science and Engineering was authorized to confer both M.E. and Ph.D. degrees of the first-class discipline “Instrument Science and Technology”.

Our school’s discipline “Instrument Science and Technology” was ranked the fifth in the first-class discipline evaluation conducted by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in 2012. The school also offers Ph.D. programs in four second-class disciplines including 1) Precision Instrumentation and Machinery, 2) Measurement Technique and Instrument, 3) Navigation, Guidance and Control, and 4) Micro-electromechanical Systems and Measurement Technique. It has established the post-doctoral station for the first-class discipline Instrument Science and Technology, Ministry of Education Key Laboratory of Micro-Inertial Instrument and Advanced Navigation Technology, Jiangsu Province Key Laboratory of Remote Measurement and Control Technology, and Ministry of Land and Resources Key Laboratory of Land Field Investigation and Monitoring Technology. The first-class discipline Instrument Science and Technology is the key and prior discipline in Jiangsu province, and it is also the key construction discipline of the 211 project and 985 platform.
