Program Objectives

      Postgraduate education in the Department of Automotive Engineering aims at training high-grade, high-quality and multi-skilled talents in automotive technology and engineering and other high-tech fields. We offer 2 Grade II disciplines under 2 Level I ones – mechanical engineering, and power engineering and engineering thermophysics, both are national key disciplines. A master degree or a doctorate in engineering that is classified as a Level 1 discipline is conferred on graduates. The Department also provides education of the master’s degree in engineering with specialties in automotive engineering and power engineering.

      The curriculum for the master’s degree program has been set that includes 10 courses taught in English – an effort to highlight the feature of training practice-oriented research talents with a global perspective. Also, cooperation has been pursued to train postgraduates jointly with the University of Aachen, Germany, the University of Milan, Italy, and other world famous universities.

       In 1996, the Department introduced a consecutive “4+X” bachelor-master-(doctor) training mode, enabling about 60% students to pursue the postgraduate study under recommendation and excused from a test. So far, there are 229 postgraduates in school, including 159 master’s degree students (including 12 foreign students) and 70 doctorate students. Under the careful guidance of tutors, our postgraduates have made great achievements as a new force in scientific research of the Department.
