Program Infomation

[Introduction to School of Mechanical Engineering and Automation]:


School of Mechanical Engineering and Automation (SMEA), BeiHang University (BUAA) was founded in 1998, based on the Department of Manufacturing Engineering and Department of Electromechanical Engineering, with the origins of the specialties of Aircraft Manufacturing, Aircraft Engine Manufacturing Process and Aircraft Instruments, traced back to 1950s.

SMEA covers 7 disciplines including Mechanical Design and Theory, Mechanical Manufacturing and Automation, Mechatronical Engineering, Industrial and Manufacturing System Engineering, Aircraft Manufacturing Engineering, Material Processing and Control Engineering, and Industrial Design. Among the disciplines above, ‘Mechanical Design and Theory’ and ‘Mechanical Manufacturing and Automation’, are approved of the State Key Discipline, and the posts of Special Professor of Cheung Kong Scholars Program are available in these two disciplines. All the disciplines offer the programs of Ph.D. MSc. MEng., as well as postdoctoral research positions.

Currently, there are 170 faculty and staff members, including 1 academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, 1 young outstanding professor awarded the title of “Changjiang” scholar, 45 professors and 60 associate professors. There are 1400 enrolled students totally in SMEA, including 800 undergraduates, 600 graduate students.

In SMEA there are the National Key Laboratory of Robotics, the National Key Laboratory of Design Automation, the Laboratory of Flexible Manufacturing System for China Hi-Tech R&D Plan, Beijing’s Key Laboratory of Digitalized Design and Manufacturing, and the National “211”Project Research Centers of Digital Design and Manufacturing, Advanced Machining Technology, Advanced Technology of Sheet Forming, Advanced Robotics, as well as Teaching and Training Centers of CAD/CAM, Fundamentals of Mechanical Design, etc.

The research activities in SMEA mainly focus on the following areas: Mechanism Theory, Advanced Robotics, Modern Design Theory and Digital Design of Products, Novel Transmission System, Advanced Sheet Forming Process and Equipment, Quality Engineering, Manufacturing Scheduling and Execution System, Computer Numerical Control and Servo Systems, Industrial Process Measurement and Equipment, Non-destructive Industrial Inspection, Industrial Process Measurement and Control, Joining Process and Equipment, MEMS, NanoMechanical Technology, etc.
