The mission of Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering is to establish a first-class education and research base, committed to cultivate our graduate student to be the leading talent with solid scientific foundation, innovation and systematic thinking, and with the ability of solving major scientific problems and engineering challenges by applying mechanology and related disciplines theories and methods. Education and research of the Department at SUSTech consists of three academic directions including Robotics and Automation, Innovative Design and Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Engineering.
We have one “Academician of Chinese Academy
of Sciences”, two “1000 Talents Program” Professors and one “The Chang Jiang Scholar Program” Professor, and 15 full-time faculty members with PhD degrees from universities around the world. Research interests of our faculty cover a broad array of areas including Precision Machining Technology, Intelligent Manufacturing, Robotics Engineering, Electrochemical cell technology and Innovative Design.
Joint education universities
Purdue University, University of Texas at Austin, University of California Los Angeles, National University of Singapore, University of Hong Kong, University of Macau, Harbin Institute of Technology.
Joint education Mode
We are exploring the mode of joint training Ph.D. program in cooperation with domestic and overseas universities. At present, joint Ph.D. programs are in progress between SUSTech and many high-level universities in mainland China and oversea universities, the projects intend to recruit more than 10 full scholarship funded PhD candidates, with double tutorial system and tailored training program. Basic study term for PhD candidates is 3-5 years, and finally be conferred Doctorate by the cooperation universities.
