The School of Automation serves as the major base for research, education and personnel training in the field of Information Science and Technology. There are mature education systems for Master, PhD and undergraduate students, which include Postdoctoral Research Stations, Doctor-degree programs, as well as 5 Master-degree offered in the 2nd-level discipline of Control Theory and Control Engineering.

The School has excellent environment and basic conditions for teaching and research. There are a number of excellent experimental teaching and scientific research bases, including one National Teaching Base, Provincial Key Disciplines, Provincial Key Laboratories, University-level Experimental Teaching Center, University Robot Innovation Base, The Rockwell Automation Laboratory of Chongqing University, Siemens Automation Laboratory, Logistic Engineering laboratory, etc.

The School currently consists of three departments: Control Theory and Control Engineering, Information Engineering and Automation, and Logistics Engineering. There is an excellent group of faculties, reasonable academic echelon structure and stable young and middle-aged teachers. Most of these faculties hold Ph.D. degrees and returned overseas. There are 85 full-time faculty members, including 14 full professors (10 doctoral tutors) and 25 associate professors.

Currently there are two undergraduate specialties: Automation and Logistics Engineering.

Automation:

The specialty of Automation is composed from the combination of three original specialties: ‘Automatic Control’, ‘Industrial Electrical Automation’ and ‘Industrial Automation Instrumentation’. In 1998, according to the new professional directory of the Ministry of Education, the specialty was unified and merged into the specialty of Automation for undergraduate program. There are more than 1,000 undergraduate students and more than 300 master / doctoral students, as well as the Master of Engineering students.

Training objectives: The professional training of students should have the knowledge of basic theory and professional basis in broad areas, including electricity fundamentals (electronic technology and circuit principle), automatic control theory and systems, detection technology and automated instrumentation, electrical drive and control, information access and utilization, computer application technology and network technology. Graduates could be engaged in the field of automation, engineering practice, professional education and scientific research. The education focuses on bringing up students with comprehensive qualities, including the capabilities of solving practical engineering problems and technological innovation capability, in order to make the students become compound talents with solid professional foundation, foreign language ability, organization and management capabilities in the field of automation.

Program: undergraduate, four years, bachelor's degree in engineering.

Main courses: Circuit Theory, Electronic Technology, Automatic Control Theory, Modern Control Theory, Motor and Electric Drive, Power Electronics Technology, Computer Hardware Technology Fundamentals, Motion Control Systems, Process Control Systems, Computer Control Systems, Signal and System Analysis, Detection Technology and Automated Instrumentation, Computer Simulation, Computer Networks, System Identification Fundamentals, Automation Introduction, etc.

Graduates in Automation should have the ability to adapt to wide needs in research institutes, universities, enterprises and high-tech industries, engaging in theoretical research, development and application, production management, system design, teaching and research, technical engineering and so on.

Logistics Engineering

The specialty of Logistic Engineering was founded in 2007 and the official enrollment of undergraduate students began in 2008, approved by the National Ministry of Education.

Training objectives:This program aims to bring up senior technical personnel in Logistic Engineering, who meet the needs of the development of modern logistics, have a broader field of basic knowledge of modern engineering science and modern management science, systematically master the fundamentals and professional techniques of modern Logistics Engineering. The program emphasizes on the training of comprehensive application capacity of control engineering, mechanical engineering, information technology, computer technology, network technology and management science, as well as the cultivation of basic theory and practical skills training. The students should have three levels of basic knowledge: fundamentals of electrical, machine and information technology; Logistics, control engineering and systems engineering and other aspects of professional knowledge; planning, design and evaluation of logistics system, logistics strategy design, logistics information system design and consulting services, advanced technology and methods of logistics management, modern logistics expertise and skills, as well as logistics systems engineering integration technology.

Program: undergraduate, four years, bachelor's degree in engineering.

Main courses: Electronic Technology, Modern Logistics, Operations Research, Systems Engineering, Automatic Control Theory, Detection Technology and Signal Processing, Logistics, Engineering, Logistics System Planning and Design, Modeling and Simulation of Logistics System, Modern Logistics Technology and Equipment, Automated Warehousing Design and Management, E-commerce and Logistics Information, Automated Data Collection and Monitoring, Intelligent Recognition Technology, Decision Support Systems, Supply Chain Management, Logistics Distribution and Transportation Planning.

The specialty of logistics engineering is built as a demand-oriented program through the cooperative mode of politics, production, education and research, to make the graduates well prepared for employment. Graduates could be employed in professional logistics enterprises, multinational corporations, and logistics departments at all levels of the large industrial and commercial enterprises, government departments, research institutes and enterprises, engaging in logistics system planning and design, application development of modern logistics engineering equipment, logistics systems integration and management, decision-making and management of logistics engineering and other related work.
