School of Microelectronics and Communication Engineering, Chongqing University, has a long history and profound cultural background. It was originated from the Telecom Group of Engineering College founded in 1935, whose dean was Prof. JianFeng, a very famous radio expert and the founder of radio subject of Chongqing University. At the beginning of the founding of new China, it had extensive influence both at home and abroad and supported the construction of many domestic colleges and universities in the adjustment of the national departments after the establishment of the People's Republic of China. Radio department was reestablished in 1959 and renamed the electronic engineering department in 1992. College of Communication Engineering was established when merging the departments in 1998 and was renamed Microelectronics and Communication Engineering in 2018.
The school has State 211 Project of “Aerocraft TTC and Remote Sensing Information Transmission Technology” key construction subject and State 985 Project of “TTC and Remote Sensing Information Transmission” key construction technological innovation platform. It is the main supporting discipline of State 2011 Plan of "Chongqing Independent Brand Automobile Collaborative Innovation Center" and Double First-Class Subject Group of “Intelligent Energy”. It has two postdoctoral programs: information and communication engineering, electronic science and technology; twodoctor's degree authorization centers:information and communication engineering (first-class subject) and electronic circuit and system (second-class subject); twofirst-class subject master’s degree authorization centers:information and communication engineering, electronic science and technology, and one professionalmaster’s degree authorization center in the field of electronic and communication engineering; three majors for undergraduates: electronic information engineering, communication engineering, integrated circuit design and integrated system. The discipline of communication and information system was approved by National Defense Science and Technology Bureau in 2017 as the national defense featured discipline (Unique in Chongqing).
