Hangzhou Institute of Technology of Xidian University (hereinafter referred to as the Institute) is a new industry-education integration platform jointly built by Xidian University and Xiaoshan District for coordinated development of the government, university and enterprises. It is established based on the requirements of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council on deepening the reform and deployment of industry-education integration. The Institute accelerates the reform and development of postgraduate education in the new century following the conception of the Ministry of Education, the National Development and Reform Commission, and the Ministry of Finance. It gives full play to the advantages of XDU’s electronics and information disciplines, and takes the initiative to serve the development of the Yangtze River Delta region. Located in the Xiaoshan Innovation Polis, Hangzhou, the campus has a planned area of approximately 100 acres, with a great location and pleasant environment.
The Institute gathers high-level talents and aims for advanced scientific research, high-quality achievements transformation, and top talent training. It integrates Hangzhou's advantages of being the forefront of national economic development, outstanding geographical location, and leading scientific & technological innovation vitality. Moreover, the city boasts numerous electronic and information industries, and has developed private economy. Based on this, the Institute innovates the system and mechanism, optimizes development elements, focuses on national major needs, and builds strategic scientific and technological forces. It takes talents as the driving force for development, enhances development through innovation, and seeks development through contribution. We strive for higher level of scientific and technological self-reliance for the country, better economic and social development of the Yangtze River Delta region, and faster construction of XDU into a first-class university.
At present, Hangzhou Institute of Technology has 12 laboratories and 4 innovation centers, focusing on scientific research and discipline construction. Guided by industrial digitalization and digital industrialization, the Institute implements the “543” digital economy development plan — five alliances (such as smart vehicles, integrated circuits, and smart medicine), four platforms (such as general radar and industrial software), and three services (such as talent services, technical services and education services). The objective is to connect innovation chain and industrial chain, accelerate the core technology breakthrough and scientific research achievements transformation, and cultivate high-level technical talents for the country and regions.
Currently the Institute has 72 teachers (including 23 from Xidian University), 202 postgraduate advisors, and 268 more advisors from enterprises. There are altogether 1240 postgraduate students, including masters in their senior years and PhD students.

As a provincial new research and development institution, the Institute has applied for one talent innovation drive center of the Ministry of Science and Technology and completed the application for talent recognition of 42 faculty members. So far, 164 scientific research contracts and agreements have been signed, and 17 university-enterprise joint laboratories have been established (data deadline: October 31, 2022).
In the future, the Institute will integrate closely with the industrial development of Xiaoshan District and adhere to the “industry plus education” cultivation mode. The priority will be given to discipline plan, faculty development, talent cultivation, and academic ecology. It focuses on the needs of high-level applied talents in Xiaoshan District, Zhejiang province and beyond in the areas of industrial Internet, intelligent automobile electronics, intelligent medical care, advanced information technology, and IC industries. It strives to build an “electronic information+” innovation highland, improve the “linkage” and “cohesion” of high-end talents, scientific & technological innovation and industrial ecology, and become a source of innovation to boost the development of industrial cluster.
