POSITION:homepage  ABOUT  Introduction

     The University of Science and Technology of China is made up of the Department of modern mechanics, the department of precision machinery and precision instruments, the Department of Thermal and Energy Engineering, and the Department of Safety Science and Engineering. The college has 5 undergraduate programs in theoretical and applied mechanics, mechanical design and manufacture and their automation, measurement and control technology and instruments, energy and power engineering, and safety engineering, among them, theoretical and applied mechanics is the national science talent training base, mechanics is the first-class discipline, safety science and engineering is the National Key Disciplines discipline, and instrument science and technology is the provincial key discipline, power Engineering and engineering thermal physics are the provincial key disciplines, mechanics, instrument science and technology, Power Engineering and engineering thermal physics are the first-class disciplines, and mechanical engineering is the first-class disciplines master’s degree The college also has 3 postdoctoral stations in mechanics, instrumental science and technology, power engineering and engineering thermophysics.

       After years of development, with the support of the National “Project 211” and “Project 985” , the college has gradually formed a complete training system and discipline system, and established the distinctive characteristics of the Department of Engineering Sciences, the graduates have been recognized and welcomed by the society. Some of them have grown into influential experts, scholars and leaders at home and abroad. Currently, 14 graduates have been elected academicians of the two academies and 10 have become science and technology generals.

       At the same time, the scientific research work of the college is also constantly developing, and has achieved fruitful results. Has Received 4 national-level research achievements award, more than 40 Chinese Academy of Sciences and provincial ministerial-level research achievements award. According to incomplete statistics, since 2000, our hospital has undertaken 421 National Natural Science Foundation Projects, the Ministry of Science and technology 863,973 and other high-tech projects more than 75 projects, the Chinese Academy of Sciences more than 75 projects, the Ministry of Education more than 45 projects, Anhui Province more than 93 projects. More than 800 other kinds of scientific research projects.

       With the rapid growth of its teaching and research team, the college attaches great importance to absorbing excellent talents from home and abroad, forming a capable teaching staff. The college has 218 faculty members and 76 Research Staff (including 7 special director Zhengyan, 26 special deputy director, 43 post-bo) . At present, there are 58 in-service professors or researchers (Zhenggao) and 50 associate professors (associate professors) , including 5 academicians of the two academies and 2 Changjiang Scholars, 8 recipients of the National Outstanding Youth Fund and 8 recipients of the National Outstanding Youth Fund, 27 people were selected for the national high level talent program, 2 for the national new century one billion talent project, and 1 for the National Ten thousand people program.

       The mission of the college is to discover and apply new knowledge in engineering science, and to train academic leaders and industry leaders.The goal of the college is to make the basic and strategic research achievements of the college with significant application prospects widely recognized by international counterparts, the advanced technologies invented widely used by industries, and the specialized talents trained by the college are widely welcomed by the society, to create a world-class engineering school.The college’s Development Strategy is based on the university’s comprehensive disciplinary advantages and extensive international influence, focusing on the cutting-edge and cross-disciplinary disciplines of future cutting-edge new technologies around the major strategic and regional needs of the country, constructing the innovation system of the combination of production, teaching and research to realize the sustainable development of discipline and education.

        The School of Engineering Science was established in 1998 and is composed of the Department of Modern Mechanics, the Department of Precision Machinery & Instrumentation, the Department of Thermal Science & Energy Engineering and the Department of Safety Science and Engineering. The dean of the school is Professor DU Shanyi, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The executive dean is Professor LU Xiyun, member of Cheung Kong Scholars. The School owns the CAS Key Laboratory for Mechanical Behaviors and Design of Materials.  

      The School of Engineering Science now has 48 professors and 44 associated professors, among whom there are 4 CAS and CAE academicians, 5 members supported by the National Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars and 12 members supported by “Hundred Talents Program” of CAS.

      Engineering Science belonged to scope of Applied Science is also called as Technical Science, and is a bridge connected natural science with engineering technology. When USTC was established, a good many departments and subjects were pitched engineering science, but these departments and subjects are different from the counterparts of traditional engineering college. The former is oriented towards engineering science, is to educate research higher personnel to solve the scientific problems emerged from engineering; the latter is oriented directly towards engineering technology and mainly educate engineers. In fact, the establishment of a good many departments and subjects with type of engineering science at USTC is an important part of the advanced educational philosophy --- “combination of science and technology, combination of science and engineering”.

      The progress of modern science and technology, especially the booming of the latest advanced technology, has injected new energy into engineering science, and put forward new challenge to it at the same time. That is the background of SES establishment, which has combined related departments and subjects, and aimed the integration of limited resources, the promotion of interdisciplinary research between different subjects, especially between engineering science and the latest advanced technology.

      The School of Engineering Science has always attached importance to international academic exchange and encouraged teachers to participate international academic congress or symposium, and has established long-term cooperative research and exchange relations with the academic institutions of such as USA, Japan, British, German, Spain, Australia and Hong Kong, Taiwan etc. In this way, SES is booming in the round.
