The photoelectric information science and technology major belongs to the School of Science of Tianjin Polytechnic University. It was established in 2002. In 2011, it was approved to be a major related to the Tianjin strategic emerging industry. Each year, enrollment is about 100 students.

This major emphasizes professional training in optics, optoelectronics, electronic science and technology, computer applications and other disciplines. We provide education in the basic theory, professional knowledge and skills in photoelectric detection, optical communication, machine vision, laser processing, photoelectric functional materials and devices, new energy and circuit design in the fields of teaching, scientific research, product development, production technology and management work.

Since the establishment of this major, it gradually formed two specialties: optoelectronic detection and optoelectronic functional materials and devices.

This major is a four-year undergraduate program. After graduation, students can receive a Bachelor of Science degree.
