BEng Electronic Science and Technology XJTLU

Bachelor’s in Electronic Science and Technology

Introduction to the Program

The Bachelor’s in Electronic Science and Technology at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) is a three or four year program for international students taught in English.


Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University is a new international university jointly founded by Xi’an Jiaotong University China and the University of Liverpool UK as a joint venture. As an independent Sino-Foreign cooperative university, it captures the essence of both prestigious parent universities and is the first and only one of its kind approved by the Ministry of Education in China. The University offers undergraduate degree programmes in the fields of science, engineering and management, and awards both its own Chinese degree and a degree from the University of Liverpool.

About the Program

The BEng Electronic Science and Technology programme offers you a thorough foundation in micro-electronic engineering, electronic engineering and photonic engineering. You will learn to operate at the cutting-edge of emerging technologies .

About The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is committed to research and teaching excellence. Our highly qualified academic staff includes full professors, associate professors and lecturers.

We aim to develop graduates who are competent in the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering with wider transferable skills in communication, team-working, organisational awareness and project management. Our students are able to meet the needs of a wide spectrum of employers both within and outside the specialised sector.

Additionally, the department is actively engaged in research activities and our academic staff are recognised in a number of research areas. Our strong research background has a positive impact on the quality of teaching – our students are exposed to the latest cutting-edge knowledge.


With a worldwide shortage of graduates in this field, BEng Electronic Science and Technology graduates have multiple career opportunities within micro-electronic engineering, electronic engineering and photonic engineering. Given the programme’s strong focus on micro and photo-electronics, graduates will be particularly well-equipped for employment in the microelectronics (semiconductor) and photonics industries.

The programme will also provide a sound foundation for further studies at masters and PhD levels in microelectronics, electronics and photonics.

Knowledge and Skills

By the time you graduate from the BEng Electronic Science and Technology programme, you will:

  • have extensive experience in modelling and analytical methods
  • be able to use IT tools and computer-aided design systems for modelling, analysis, simulation and design
  • be able to design a system, component or process based on initial requirements and constraints
  • be able to design and fabricate integrated circuit chips or photonic devices
