Brief Introduction:
School of Information and Optoelectronic Science and Engineering was founded in 31st January, 2002 under the effort of Prof. Songhao Liu, an Academician of Chinese Academy of Science and former President of South China Normal University, reorganized from Institute of Quantum Electronics, Laboratory of Light Transmission Optics and Department of Optoelectronic Engineering. It is a new style school with its goal of the combination of study and research with production in outside companies for students. The school has high standard research faculty and teams. Among the faculty members there are 27 PhDs and 14 Masters, and many of them have won various prizes of the country or provincial level for their innovative works. In the past two decades, the school has developed to be a leading education and research center for optoelectronic science and engineering in Guangdong province.
