In September 2010, establishment of the new major “Information Display and Optoelectronic Technology” was approved by Shanghai Education Committee.
In September 2011, the undergraduate major “Information Display and Optoelectronic Technology” started the enrollment. In September 2012, the state adjusted the undergraduate major catalogue of general institutions of higher education and revised the five majors which originally belonged to the category of electronic information science and electrical information into “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering”. Therefore, in October 2012, the major “Information Display and Optoelectronic Technology” was renamed as “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering” (hereinafter referred to as the “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering”).
In September 2011, 39 freshmen were officially enrolled for the first time by the major “Information Display and Optoelectronic Technology”. At present, there are 2015rd and 2016rd graduates. There are 4 grades under the major “Optoelectronic Information Science and Technology” and 124 students in total, including 34 students in the 2012 grade, 28 students in the 2013 grade, 28 students in the 2014 grade, 32 students in the 2015 grade and ?students in the 2016grade.
Two professional cultivation directions were set under the “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering”: (1) Lighting Technology of Semiconductor; (2) Optoelectronic Detection Technology.
The major “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering” is under the Department of Applied Physics in the School of Science. Department of Applied Mathematics, Teaching and Researching Office of Advanced Mathematics, Teaching and Researching Section of Physics, Department of Applied Physics and Experiment Center for Physics are set under the School of Science. There are 29 full-time teachers in Physics, 19 of whom have doctor degree. Besides, the faculty condition is excellent.
It has been demonstrated that the major “Material Physics(Optoelectronic material)” set up by the School of Material Science and Engineering and “Electronic Information Engineering” set up the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering under the School of Science are supporting majors close to the major “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering” in the university.
According to the requirement of “Professional Norms of the Major “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering” of General Institutes of Higher Education”, we made the professional talents training scheme fits the characteristics of the source of students by borrowing from the experience of the construction of “Optoelectronic Information Science and Engineering” of domestic institutions. The scheme was oriented by the demand for jobs, aimed at increasing knowledge and improving abilities and used the courses as the carrier.
5 professional basic courses, 6 professional compulsory courses and 8 professional elective courses were set up.
Other major courses including Analog Electronic Technology, Digital Electronic technology, Engineering Optics, Physics of Semiconductor Device, Fundamental Optoelectronic Technique, Optical Measurement Technique, Fundamentals of Heat Dissipation Design, Principle and Application of the Embedded System Design, LED Lighting Technology, Optical Fiber Technology, Computer-Aided Optical Design, Professional English, Optoelectronic Device and Its’ Engineering Application, Spectrum Analysis Technology, Optoelectronic Materials, Thin Film Optics and Technology, Lighting Design, International Experts Series Seminar, Foundation and Application of Switch Power Supply and LED Power Supply Design etc.
some practical links including professional experiment courses(including 5 in-class experiments, please refer to the summary table for details), course design(3 courses), cognition practice, graduation practice and graduation design(thesis) etc.
Since the establishment of this major was approved by Shanghai Education Committee, professional faculty has been greatly improved by combining introduction and cultivation. From the perspective of title structure, degree structure, age structure, overseas background, enterprise background and post structure, we have owned the faculty which had a reasonable structure. At present, there are 18 full-time teachers who have participated in the professional construction, including 3 professors, associate professors, 6 lectures and 2 full-time experimentalists. There are 14 teachers (77.8%) with doctor degrees, 5 teachers (27.8%) with overseas visiting experiences, 7 teachers(38.9%) with enterprise working experience or enterprise practice for more than one year and 1 Oriental Scholar(Part-time). The school also hired 9 experts of LED industry and 3 professors from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Fudan University and University of Shanghai for Science and Technology as part-time professors, which strongly promoted the construction and development of the major.
Basic teaching conditions and utilization
The room for construction covers 444 square meters, with 6 professional laboratories for students to experiment and practice. 3.517 million Yuan was input into the construction of professional laboratories, the total number of which is 132. The experiment programs were mainly set up for comprehensive and designable experiments and obviously promoted the cultivation of students’ innovation thinking and the ability to solve problems. The professional laboratory provides a good experiment site for students’ innovative projects. In the past three years, 52 innovative projects for college students were approved and 14 research papers were published. At the meantime, the professional laboratory provides the experiment site for the graduation design of two graduates.
Out-of-campus practice base
We have established 6 out-of-campus practice bases with Shanghai PN-Stone Technology co. LTD and other enterprises including relative enterprises in the whole industry chain of semiconductor lighting industry under the major, which provides a good platform for the students’ cognition practice, professional practice and graduation practice. At the same time, we cooperated with the above 6 enterprises to build the University-Enterprise Joint Development center. Through the communication and cooperation with these enterprises, the Production-Education-Research Collaborative Innovation level of full-time teachers has been improved.
Professional curriculum of 6 teaching modules including public basic course, subject basic course, professional basic course, professional compulsory course, professional elective course and practical teaching were set up. At present, teachers of the major undertake 4 key curriculum construction projects and 3 enterprise-university cooperation courses. Besides, they made the handouts of professional courses, syllabus, course schedule and teaching plan. Please read the supporting materials for details.
Practice teaching system containing professional experiment course, curriculum design, cognition practice, professional practice, graduation practice and graduation design(thesis) were set up; With complete materials like teaching plans of practice link; The experiment teaching rate is 100%, and the comprehensive and designable courses account for 100%. Please read the supporting materials for details.
There are only two years of graduates including the 2015rd and the 2016rd, the employment rate of which are 100%.
Main features of the major are as follows:
(1)Major direction: Semiconductor lighting direction is unique among all the undergraduate majors of Shanghai universities. We set up a series of courses on semiconductor lighting, covering various links in the industry chain such as LED packaging detection, optical design, heat dissipation design and LED application technology .etc.
(2)Talent cultivation mode: pay attention to the introduction of enterprise talents, carry out curriculum and experiment project construction in cooperation with enterprises, jointly build the “Joint Development Center” and promote the “University-Enterprise Joint Cultivation” talents cultivation mode.
(3)Laboratory construction: set up the experiment platform in the form of enterprise micro-production line to combine the industry practice with undergraduate education.
