The School of ElectricPower Engineering was founded in mid-to late 1970s. After nearly 40 years of development, it has established an excellent education and research reputation in Yunnan. The School has so far cultivated large quantities of qualified talents. More than 7000 students have graduated. Many graduates have become chief engineers or general managers of Yunnan’s power related industrial companies.

The School now located at Chengong campus of Kunming University of Science and Technology, comprises of Department of Electrical Engineering and Department Water conservancy and hydropower engineering. There are 3 undergraduate programs, Electrical Engineering and its Automation, hydraulic and hydro-power engineering, Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering. In respect of graduate education, two first-level disciplines are currently available, Electrical Engineering and Water Conservancy Engineering. Of them, both Electrical Engineering and hydraulic & hydro-power engineering were enlisted as the key disciplines in Yunnan and National characteristic specialties.
