Title: Integrated Education-Research-Techtransfer for EIT in China: A Case Study of Tsinghua EE Department


The discipline of Electronics and Information Technology (EIT) combines the characteristics of basic and applied research and maintains a close relationship with industry. To effectively capitalize on innovative elements within enterprises and promote collaborative innovation, the Department of Electronic Engineering of Tsinghua University has placed great importance and kept enhancing collaboration with industry partners. We have established an organizational structure and implementation paths with an engineering approach to strengthen industrial partnerships and promote technology transfer. Our proactive efforts on this closed-loop system of discipline ecology have yielded positive results, which have driven the development of the national electronic information industry, and fostered closer integration between academia- education-industry fulfilling the three foundational functions of university - talent cultivation, scientific research, and social service.
