Authorized Master and Doctorate Disciplines

   NEDU is one of the first master degree authorization units in our country. NEDU started recruiting postgraduate students in 1978. In 1992, NEDU began jointly training doctoral candidates with key universities in the country. In 2003, under the principal of “Plan Separately, Train Jointly”, Degree Office of the State Council approved of 2 of NEDU’s disciplines recruiting doctoral candidates, Power System and Its Automation and Thermal Power Engineering. In 2009, approved by Degree Office of the State Council, NEDU became one of the Doctoral Degree Granting Project Constructing Units. 2 disciplines, Electrical Engineering and Power Engineering and Thermalphysics, became Doctoral Degree Granting Project Constructing Disciplines. In 2013, approved by the 30th session of Degree Office of the State Council, NEDU was authorized as a doctoral degree awarding unit, with Electrical Engineering and Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics as its first-level disciplines of doctoral degree.

   The university is authorized to recommend excellent undergraduates to go on to study at graduate schools. At present, NEDU has 2 first-level disciplines of doctoral degree, 11 first-level disciplines and 36 second-level disciplines of master degree and the university also has 7 authorization fields of master of engineering.
