Associate / Full Professor in Electrical Engineering

Tianjin University - Faculty of Science and Engineering

As the first modern university in China, Tianjin University (TJU) was founded in 1895 with Peiyang University being its predecessor which has gone through more than 120 years. It has been recognized nationwide and overseas for its motto of “Seeking Truth from Facts”, the ethos of “Precision in Learning and Strictness in Teaching”, and the tradition of “Patriotic Dedication”. TJU was identified as one of the first batch of the 16 National Key Universities designated by the government, and it is also among the first group of institutions of higher learning to be included into the “211” and “985" Projects of national investment for developing world recognized universities.

Over the years, TJU gives precedence to the field of engineering and focuses on integrating science with engineering. Disciplines including economics, business, humanities, law, and education have also been developed. Furthermore, with a focus on the major strategic demands of the nation, as well as the frontiers of world technology, it combines cultivation of talents, disciplinary development and scientific research. TJU continuously enhances its administrative quality and the competitiveness of its faculty, facilitating the combining of research and education, to sustain industrial development and ultimately to serve the construction of an innovation-oriented nation.

With deepening reform of the personnel system, TJU is establishing a tenure system with its own characteristics. As a new campus was put into use in 2015 to pave more space for development, TJU has intensified its effort for talents recruitment via Outstanding Peiyang Scholars Program. TJU provides competitive compensation and liberal academic environment with advanced administrative service. With the contribution of worldwide talents in this program, TJU aims to build a top-notch faculty team and speeds up the construction of a first-class university with top quality disciplines.
