Communications Engineering


Hai Jiang received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electronics engineering from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 1995 and 1998, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree (with an Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies Award) in electrical engineering from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, in 2006. Since July 2007, he has been a faculty member with the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where he is currently a Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. 

Dr. Jiang received an Alberta Ingenuity New Faculty Award in 2008, a Best Paper Award from the IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) in 2008, and a Faculty of Engineering Research Award from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Alberta, in 2015.


Dr. Jiang's research has been primarily focused on several areas in wireless communications and networking: radio resource management, cognitive radio networking, and cooperative communications.

Current Research

  • Non-orthogonal multiple access
  • Energy harvesting-based wireless communications
  • Millimeter-wave communications
  • Opportunistic wireless communications


ECE 212 - Introduction to Microprocessors

Microcomputer architecture, assembly language programming, sub-routine handling, memory and input/output system and interrupt concepts. Prerequisite: ECE 210 or E E 280 or CMPUT 329. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 212, E E 380 or CMPUT 229.

ECE 487 - Data Communication Networks

Network topologies. Layered architectures and the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model. Peer-to-peer protocols, medium access control protocols, and local area network standards. Packet switched networks and routing, the TCP/IP suite of protocols. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 487, CMPUT 313 or CMPE 487.

ECE 686 - Wireless Communication Networks

This course is concerned with the architecture, protocols, modeling, and evaluation of wireless communication networks in transport of multimedia traffic. Specifically, this course studies queuing theory, traffic modeling, radio resource allocation, call admission control, access control, multiple access, and mobility management in existing and emerging advanced wireless networks.
