The School of Electrical and Information Engineering began in 1953 with the introduction of electrical engineering courses in the school and the establishment of the Electrical Engineering Teaching and Research Group in 1958. At present, the College has enrolled in five undergraduate majors. In 1977, 2001 and 2002, it established the majors of Automation, Electrical Engineering and its Automation, and Computer Science and Technology, and in 2006, it abolished the department and established the College of Electrical and Information Engineering.
There are 72 teachers in the school, including 10 professors, 2 doctoral supervisors and 60% of teachers with doctoral degrees. After more than 60 years of construction, the school has a master's degree in Control Science and Engineering, and is recruiting PhDs and Postdoctoral in the discipline "Intelligent Construction Engineering". It has a complete talent training system of "undergraduate, master's degree, doctor's degree and postdoctoral degree". The school has “National Virtual Simulation Teaching Centre for Smart City”, “Beijing Key Laboratory for Robotics Bionics and Function Research”, “Beijing Key Laboratory for Research on Intelligent Processing Methods of Big Data in Construction”, and is shortlisted for the construction of Beijing Advanced Innovation Center of “Future Urban Design”, “Intelligent Robots and Systems” and “The future image”.
In recent years, the school has undertaken a series of key and surface projects of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, National Key R&D-Related (sub) Projects, and important projects in Beijing, involving research fields such as smart cities, national power grids, and the construction of the "Science and Technology Winter Olympics". The school has applied for more than 100 invention patents, and has received more than 10 awards for teaching and research achievements at provincial and ministerial level, including the Second Prize of National Science and Technology Progress and the Natural Science Prize of the Ministry of Education.
