School of Mechanical Engineering

I. Overview
School of Mechanical Engineering is among the largest and strongest schools of Nanjing University of Science and Technology. Its faculty members are well-structured, young and energetic, active in thinking, and excellent in comprehensive quality. These teachers include a batch of excellent young and middle-aged experts as well as the selected members of “511 Talent Program”, Jiangsu “333 High-level Talents Cultivation Program”, and Jiangsu Provincial Innovative Program (“Qing-Lan” Program). The School currently has 249 faculty members, including 220 full-time teachers, 11 administrative members and 18 teaching assistants. 134 teachers have doctoral degrees, while 61 and 87 teachers respectively have senior titles and associate senior titles. The School has an enrollment of 3,323 students, including 2,058 undergraduates, 907 graduates and 358 doctoral students. At present, the School has three national key disciplines, four provincial key disciplines, one national engineering center, one engineering center under Ministry of Education, one key discipline laboratory of national defense, three first-level disciplinary doctoral programs, four mobile post-doctoral stations, 12 second-level disciplinary doctoral programs, and 19 second-level disciplinary master programs.

 

 

With complete discipline configuration, the School includes seven departments, which are Mechanical Design and Automation, Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Automation, Vehicle Engineering, Precision Instruments and Measurement & Control Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Aviation and Aerospace. The School has established several institutes, a national engineering center, Nanjing municipal engineering center, Special Robotics Engineering Center and MEMS Inertial Technology Research Center, the University’s Central Laboratory, Mechatronics Engineering Center, Mechanical Engineering Center, as well as the School’s Product Technology Development Center. At present, the School has three mobile post-doctoral stations for four first-level disciplines (namely Mechanical Engineering, Armament S&T, Instrument S&T, and Aviation and Aerospace S&T), 11 doctoral programs and 19 master programs. In addition, the School has three national key disciplines and four provincial key disciplines. Its six undergraduate programs are Mechanical Engineering and Automation, Measurement & Control Technology and Instruments, Weapon Systems and Engineering, Vehicle Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Aircraft Design and Engineering.

 

The School has strong scientific research capacity and wide research areas. With a number of academic leaders who have greater attainments and domestic influence, the School has established more than 20 relatively stable research areas and academic teams. Since the beginning of the Tenth Five-Year Plan (2001), the School has undertaken more than 100 projects funded by National Natural Science Foundation, National High-tech R&D Program (863 Program), National Basic Research Program (973 Program), National defense pre-research, models and horizontal scientific research. Its annual research funding reaches RMB 80 million. With more than 350 annually published articles, 49 technological achievement awards at provincial or above level, 50 granted patents, and over 50 published academic works and textbooks, the School has made great contributions to the development of national defense and economy. It has formed its own characteristics and overall advantages in the test and research of electromechanical system design and engineering, testing and measuring technology and instrumentation, theory and application of modern mechanical design, robotics, modern design methods of vehicles, industrial design, etc. The School takes a leading domestic position in advanced manufacturing system theory and automation technology, weapon launch and ammunition, and fuse intelligence and smartness technology. After the key construction as a university of “Project 211” (National Key Universities and Colleges initiated in 1995), the School has reached the advanced domestic level in the hardware and software conditions for scientific and technological research and postgraduate training.

 

Currently, the School has established close connection with universities and institutions of a dozen of developed countries and regions, such as the US, Germany, France, Britain, Japan, Russia, Hong Kong China, Macau China and European Union, in the areas of research, academic exchange and joint running of schools. It also makes extensive industry-university-research cooperation with institutions and large enterprises. The School has employed more than 30 well-known experts and professors (including academicians) as its part-time professors, and invites over 50 foreign experts to give lectures every year. All these measures have played an important part in the development of School of Mechanical Engineering.
