Sometimes as we have regularly advocated some articles are so well researched and cohesively written,  that their reading is essential to better understand a subject matter and in this case Chengdu’s innovation and technological capabilities. One of those articles was recently published by The Straits Time website and written by their esteemed reporter Ms. Chong Koh Ping.

May we strongly recommend you read the article and Ms. Ping’s insights into Chengdu’s industrial eco system, start up community and emerging industries.

However there is an important matter that we need to draw our readers attention to and that of ‘The University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.’ Chengdu, hereafter “UESTC.” has liaised extensively with like-minded business and technical minded Chengdu and external experts and they all agree UESTC has something very inimitable, innovative and pioneering about its core capabilities, faculty, research staff and students.

We highlight some important attributes from their website as follows,

“The University of Electronic Science and Technology of China is “renowned as China's cradle for the national electronic industry,” and today it has “developed into a multidisciplinary university, directly under the Ministry of Education, which has electronic information science and technology as its nucleus, engineering as its major field, and incorporates nature science, management, economics and liberal arts”. 

UESTC has over 3,000 faculty members, 196 PHD supervisors and 325 full time professors, 483 associate professors and over 26,000 students.

UESTC has a vast array of expertise in engineering and scientific fields not limited to Radar Detection and Imaging Technology, Optoelectronic Technology, Electronic Information Materials Technology, and Electronic Components and Vacuum Electron Device Technology to name a few.

UESTC has also undertaken ground breaking research and development in areas of ‘Nanometre Ferroelectric Materials and Applications’,  ‘Electronic Polymers Based Gas Sensors and Humidity Sensors’, ‘The conducting polymers electrode materials and their applications in solid-electrolyte capacitors’ and  ‘Low power consumption ferrite magnetic cores and new type economic on energy magnetic components and devices’ to name a few. UESTC has collaboration and partnership agreements with other esteemed universities worldwide, such as Ohio State University, U.S.A, Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland, Berlin Institute of Technology, Germany, Waseda University, Japan, University Western Australia, Australia, University of Auckland, New Zealand and the University of Alberta, Canada. overtime will provide further unique insights regarding The University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu and its associated industrial park where various enterprises exists in the engineering, industrial and semi conductor eco systems.

Finally, has been closely reviewing the insights and writings of Ms. Pok of the Strait Times Singapore and she comprehensively and diligently encapsulates the main business, investment and technological themes on any specific subject matter. 

In the below mentioned article she discusses Dr. Peng’s pioneering work in robotics and the Ardent enterprise, Chengdu’s Raja New Energy Automobile Technology, Chengdu’s start up environment, the Pinguo technology company and its Camera 360 app with more than 500 million users, and governmental investment support policies.  We again strongly recommend you read the article and over time we will report on her ground breaking research articles and insights.
