Of its outstanding faculty, two experts are receiving special allowances from the State Council. There is one provincial expert, one school-level academic leader, two doctoral supervisors, 34 master supervisors, three school-level academic core teachers, and three outstanding young talented professionals of Guizhou Province. Not only have they made outstanding achievements in the field of energy and control-related frontiers, they have also persisted in cultivating innovative, talented young professionals for the future benefit of the country. Since 1958, nearly 10,000 students have graduated from the College who are now working in various technological fields and sectors of the nation. The College has four departments, a section for electrical foundation teaching, and a laboratory center. Each of the four departments runs an undergraduate program respectively, namely, electrical engineering and automation, automation, measurement and control technology and instrumentation, and energy and power engineering. The College has one second-level discipline doctoral program, five first-level disciplines master's programs and five second-level discipline master's programs.
The laboratories at the college are: electrical engineering and automation lab, measurement technology and instrumentation lab, energy and power engineering lab, automation lab, the key lab of Power System Intelligent Technology of Guizhou, and the “Research Center of New Wire and Cable Engineering Technology of Guiyang” (co-built with Guiyang Xinxin Cable Factory), the New Energy Technology R&D Center (co-built with Xinxingjihua and Honghua company), and the Guizhou Boxue Testing Technology Co., Ltd. (co-built with Guizhou Guise Testing Technology Co., Ltd.). The laboratories occupy a total area of 4307.84 m2, and the estimated value of the equipment exceeds 40 million yuan.
With an illustrious tradition of outstanding teachers and an excellent academic atmosphere, the College of Electrical Engineering aims to become a prime site for people who have a deep affinity for energy and control sciences.

It plays an important role in promoting national industrial modernization. The main courses include circuit theory, electronic technology, signal and system, automatic control theory, power electronics, motor and drag basics, process control, motion control, computer control technology, electrical control and PLC. Graduates are equipped with innovative capabilities in automation and related fields. With solid professional knowledge and skills, they can use automation expertise and engineering skills to discover and solve practical problems. Graduates of the Department of Automation are widely involved in scientific research, teaching, system design, new product development, hardware and software development in automation and related fields, as well as financial, corporate, and national administrative departments.
Department of Measurement and Control Technology and Instrumentation
The department mainly studies the theory and application technology of information detection, transmission, processing and utilization in information acquisition technology. The department offers "Measurement Technology and Instrumentation" as a major. The study includes computer measurement and control technology, wireless sensing and soft measurement technology, tactile sensing technology, visual inspection technology, new energy and sustainable energy, machine learning, and pattern recognition. The main courses include sensor technology, principles and design of measurement and control systems, detection technology, and virtual instrument technology. Graduates can go on to study computer measurement and control technology, embedded technology, modern sensor technology, or artificial intelligence. They are equipped to enter government agencies, research institutes and companies for any teaching, scientific research or management work on automated measurement technology, sensor and inspection technology, and production process control.
Department of Energy and Power Engineering
The study of this department focuses on the efficient conversion and utilization of clean energy, especially thermal energy, and the relevant devices. With the adjustment of China's energy structure and policies, the focus of the department has expanded from the thermal energy and power engineering of traditional power plants to the power generation and thermal energy utilization of renewable energy. Main courses for this major include engineering thermodynamics, engineering fluid mechanics, heat transfer, pumps and fans, boiler principles, turbine principles, thermal power plants, thermal process automation, environmental technology, renewable energy, and other required and elective courses. Graduates can enroll in master’s programs in thermal energy engineering, engineering thermal physics, or new energy. They can also work for power design institutes, power plants, power equipment design and manufacturing companies, and other enterprises and government agencies involved in energy engineering and environmental protection.
Section of Electrical Foundation
This section is responsible for the theory and part of the experimental teaching for the electric and electronic basic courses for all students in Guizhou University. It offers the following undergraduate courses: circuit theory, electromagnetic fields, analog electronic technology, digital electronic technology, electrotechnics, common circuit simulation software application basics, circuit components and applications, electronic circuit simulation and analysis, integrated electronic circuit design, experimental design basis, analog electronic technology design, digital electronic technology design.
