Founded in December 2015, the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) is one of departments in the College of Engineering. It aims to establish a world-leading department in mechanics and aerospace engineering, covering various research areas such as fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, aeroacoustics, mechanics, combustion, material, and system control. The Department will learn from the best practice of peer departments over the world in order to develop into an international research institution that attends to the national strategic needs in mechanics and aerospace, cultivates outstanding innovative talents, and conducts frontier fundamental research and applied research with social impact.
The goal of the Department is to become a top-tier international leader through introducing an innovative education system which emphasizes IUR (Industry-University-Research) in close association with the Chinese aerospace industry. The specific objectives are: 1) to nurture innovative talents (learning); 2) to research and develop key technologies (research); and 3) to provide technical services (production) for the national aerospace industry.
The department has two undergraduate programs: Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, and Aerospace Engineering, and possesses state-certified BS, MS and PhD degree programs and Postdoctoral station of Mechanics. The department currently has 20 tenured/tenure-track faculty members, conducting active research in the general areas of fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, computational mechanics, micro and soft materials and devices, aeroengines, unmanned aerial vehicles, aeroacoustics and dynamics. It also has two key laboratories, namely, Guangdong Key Laboratory of Turbulence Research and Applications and Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Complex Aerospace Flows.
