Since the first LHC collision at 7 TeV center-of-mass energy in 2010, the CMS detector has recorded the LHC data with very high efficiency. The CMS all silicon tracking system, particularly the pixel detector, has been the critical element for CMS to maintain the physics reach at the severe environment of the LHC. At CMS, the electro-weak physics program has served as standard candles to help commissioning the CMS detector. The large sample of recorded W/Zs and di-boson pairs has enabled precise measurement of many SM processes to test higher-order SM predictions and work as probes to the beyond-the-SM physics. Along with the advance in the phenomenology of LHC physics, the electro-weak physics at CMS offers a unique window to explore the proton structure function in an unprecedented territory. This talk focuses on recent highlights of the CMS electro-weak physics
