Xi’an University of Posts and Telecommunications (XUPT) was founded in 1950 and gradually developed into a polytechnic university focusing on engineering and the specialization of information science technology. This regimen of engineering specialization has been consummated by integrating the disciplines of engineering, management, science, economics, the humanities, law, and art.
Over the past years, the University has undertaken 280 national, ministerial, and provincial research projects, including the National “863” High-Tech Research and Development Program; the National Natural Science Fund; the National Social Sciences Fund; the National “242” Information Security Program; the National Soft Science Research Program; the National Science and Technology Special Programs; and some major Shaanxi provincial projects.
XUPT has won 40 prizes for achievements in science and technology at the state and provincial levels. In 2008 the academic thesis “40 Gb/s SDH(STM-256) Optical Fiber Telecommunication Devices and System” won the Second Grade National Prize for Science and Technology Progress; in 2009 the “Research of the Key Technologies of TD-SCDMA Base Station, Equipment Development and Industrialization” won the same prize; and in 2010 the academic thesis “HuFu TePA” was approved as an international standard by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
XUPT also established the “National Engineering Laboratory for Wireless Security", the “Shaanxi Provincial Research Center for Telecommunication ASIC Design”, the “Key Social Research Center for Information Industry Development”, the “Key Research Center of Application Specific Integrated Circuit(ASIC) Design”, the “Key Laboratory of Modern Communication Technology”, the”Software Engineering Lab”, the “Post Information Network Lab”, the “Key Laboratory of Economy System Simulation for Information Industry”, the“Shaanxi Technology Support Center of Network and Information Security”, the“Shaanxi Innovation Research Center of ITI”, the “High Performance Computing Research Center of Shaanxi Province”, and so on. These Key Labs have made significant accomplishments in social services as well as tremendous contributions to the promotion of social betterment, economic construction, and industrial development of Shaanxi Province.
