Dr. Xiaojun Wang received a BEng in Computer and Communications and a MEng in Computer Applications from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) in 1984 and 1987 respectively. Xiaojun was employed as Assistant Lecturer/Lecturer in BUPT from 1987 to 1989. He received a PhD scholarship from the Sino-British Technical Co-operation Scheme in 1989, and carried out his PhD research in the School of Engineering in Staffordshire University in England from 1989 to 1992. He was awarded a PhD for his research in the area of High Level Logic Synthesis from Staffordshire University in 1993. 

He joined the School of Electronic Engineering of Dublin City University (DCU) as an Assistant Lecturer in November 1992. He became a permanent academic staff in 1995 in DCU where he is now an Associate Professor. He was Head of China Affairs in Dublin City University between 2002 and 2007. He was in Irish President’s trade delegation to China in 2003, and was in Irish Prime Minister’s trade delegation to China in 2005, he established collaborations between DCU and a number of Chinese universities, including Wuhan University, BUPT, and Hangzhou Dianzi University. He is the main initiator and organizer of the China-Ireland International Conference on Information and Communications Technologies (CIICT, 2006-2015). He made major contributions to the establishment of the China connections for the School of Electronic Engineering and played a key role in the China operation of Dublin City University. He was program chair of the BEng in Electronic Engineering, BEng in Information and Communications Engineering and BEng in Digital Media Engineering in DCU. He was the academic coordinator of a collaborative taught master program in Telecommunications Engineering between DCU and Wuhan University (2006 – 2011). He was co-Director of a DCU-Wuhan University joint lab for Software and Telecommunications Engineering.
