Introduction to the School of Mechanical Science and Engineering, NEPU
School of Mechanical Science and Engineering was originally from the Department of Petroleum Machinery, established in 1960 when the Northeast Petroleum Institute was founded. Now we have 145 faculty members, among which 27 Ph.D. supervisors, 45 professors, and 55 associate professors. We also have one dual-employed academician, two committee members of Chinese Ministry of Education's Steering Committee on Teaching, two Longjiang Scholar distinguished professors, one Young Scholar, twelve leaders or reserve leaders of Leading Talent Echelons of Heilongjiang Province, three experts with special allowances of China State Council and provincial government, and five provincial/ministerial teaching masters or experts.
We have six departments, i.e., Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Department of Process Equipment and Control Engineering, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Department of Industrial Design, Department of Engineering Mechanics, and three centers, i.e., Mechanical Engineering Experiment Center, Engineering Training and Innovation Center and Energy Saving Technology Center in Petroleum Engineering. The School offers eight undergraduate majors, including Machinery Design, Manufacture and Automation (China Engineering Education Accredited, National First-class Specialty, Provincial Key Specialty), Process Equipment and Control Engineering (China Engineering Education Accredited, National First-class Specialty, National Characteristic Specialty, Provincial Key Specialty), Energy and Power Engineering (National First-class Specialty), Metallic Materials Engineering (Provincial First-class Specialty, Provincial Key Specialty), Industrial Design, Engineering Mechanics, Vehicle Engineering, and Safety Engineering. We own one post-doctoral station in Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics. 1 Mechanical Engineering doctoral degree authorization first-tier discipline, two master degree authorization first-level disciplines in Mechanical Engineering, Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics, one master degree authorization unit in Materials Science, and two master degree authorization fields in Machinery (directions of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design Engineering), and Energy and Power (direction of Power Engineering).
We own 5 Leading Talent Echelons of Heilongjiang Province, i.e., Machinery Design and Theory, Chemical Process Machinery, Fluid Machinery and Engineering, Thermal Engineering, and Power Machinery and Engineering. Currently, there are 3 China Metrology Accreditation Laboratories, eight provincial/ministerial level key laboratories, R&D centers, or technology innovation centers. Since 2011, more than 110 national scientific research projects, including the National Science and Technology Support Plan, National 863 Project, National 973 Project, National Natural Science Foundation of China, and other 110 provincial projects, have been undertaken. The average annual research funding is over RMB 25 million. Over 30 provincial/ministerial science and technology awards have been awarded. Over 30 academic monographs and textbooks have been published.
After more than 60 years of development and construction, the School has become an essential base for cultivating petroleum and petro-chemical mechanical engineering talents and researching oil and petrochemical facilities. We have won 2 special prizes for National Scientific and Technological Progress, 3-second prizes for National Scientific and Technological Progress, and 1-second award for National Excellent Teaching Achievements. Over 20 thousand excellent students graduated, including some experts represented by the Chinese Academy of Engineering Academicians of Wang Yupu and Liu He.
