EIC possesses great strength in teaching and scientific research, boasting two first-level disciplines (Information and Communication Engineering and Electronic Science and Technology) and postdoctoral research stations with the same names. EIC is among the first group approved to confer doctoral degrees. It is qualified to confer doctors and masters degrees in Communication and Information System, Signal and Information Processing, Circuits and Systems, and Electromagnetic Field and Microwave. Communication and Information System, the second-level discipline, is a national key fostering discipline. Information and Communication Engineering and Electronic Science and Technology are both the first-level key disciplines in Hubei Province.
