|Introduction of the School|
The School of Power and Mechanical Engineering(SPME) is a professional institute which supports technology education and research in many engineering fields including mechanical design, power engineering, materials science, chemical engineering, automation, etc. With a high-level team led by Xiaohong Li, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Sheng Liu, a world-class scholar, and other well-known researchers, SPME plays a primary role in training creative brains and scientific research for China’s energy, power and the relative equipments’ sectors.
Currently, SPME provides training in various of programs to students, which can be described as follows: Undergraduate programs include Machine Design and Automatization, Material Forming and Control Engineering, Metallic Materials Engineering, Energy and Power Engineering, Automation, Nuclear Engineering and Technology and Energy Chemical Engineering; doctoral (PhD) programs and postgraduate programs include mechanical engineering, Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics and Materials Science and Engineering; scientific degree in postgraduate programs include Control Theory and Control Engineering, Hydraulic and Hydro-Power Engineering, Applied Chemistry and Chemical Technology; and professional degree in postgraduate programs include Power Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Control Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management. SPME also has post-doctoral research centers, including Mechanical Engineering, Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics, Materials Science and Technology.
SPME has two first-level disciplines, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering, as the provincial-level key disciplines. The subject Energy and Power Engineering was selected by the National Outstanding Engineers Training Plan, and Nuclear Engineering and Technology program was graded by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Finance as the Program with Distinctive Features at the National Level (the Seventh Batch). The school focuses on education in “Creation, Innovation and Carving out”. Recent years, the students in SPME have won about 30 awards in the academic contest and practical events. The graduates are popular with companies for their strong foundation of knowledge and extraordinary ability.
The academic research involves plenty of fields like mechanical engineering, power engineering, materials science and process engineering, control engineering, chemical engineering, etc. Besides, SPME has built cooperation with other universities and institutes in nearly 20 countries and areas, such as USA, Japan, France, Germany, etc., and more than 30 world-famous enterprises in industry education, and research.
What’s more, five research and education institutes are subordinate to SPME, namely, the National Engineering Education Center for Advanced Power Generation Technology; the National Virtual Simulation Experimental Center of Power Production Process; the Ministry of Education Key Laboratory of Hydraulic Mechanical Transition Process; the Hubei province key laboratory of Water Jet Theory and New Technology; and Hubei province Key Laboratory of Fluid Machinery and Power Engineering Equipment Technology.
