Top 10 China Universities in Aerospace Engineering

1. School of Aeronautic Science and Engineering in Beihang Univeristy

    School of Aeronautic Science and Engineering, abbreviated as ASE, has distinct aeronautic and astronautic characteristics. ASE is dedicated to research and teaching the fundamental, prospective and engineering problem, as well as new concepts, new theory, new methods of general design, aerodynamics, structure, strength, flight dynamics, man-machine environment and control etc. of all kinds of aircraft in the atmosphere including airplane, helicopter and airship, near space vehicle and miniature aircraft.



2. School of Aeronautics in Northwestern Polytechnical University

    School of Aeronautics in Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU), from its first
appearance in 1933 resulting from the merger of aeronautics unit of Shanghai Jiaotong University (1935), Aeronautical Engineering Education of Nanjing University (previously, National Central University) (1935) and Aeronautical Engineering Education of Zhejiang University (1933); to the Aircraft Engineering Department of East China Aeronautics College founded in Nanjing in 1952; to the Aircraft Engineering Department of Xi’an Aeronautics College after the westward movement, and to the Aircraft Engineering Department of NPU in the university merging in 1957. The incorporation of the whole Air Force Engineering Department of the former Harbin Military Engineering Institute into NPU in 1970 significantly strengthened both the teaching and scientific research in Aircraft Engineering Department. The department adjustment of NPU in 2003 saw the merger of Civil Aviation Engineering Department of NPU (started in 1994) into the Aircraft Engineering Department, and hence the foundation of School of Aeronautics, NPU. Because of NPU’s self-portrait as “excels simultaneously in aeronautics, astronautics and marine technology and specifically based on aeronautics”, plus the practical situation of many other schools and departments of the schools originating from relevant disciplines of the former Aircraft Engineering Department, the School of Aeronautics was numbered “the first school”.



3. College of Aerospace Engineering in Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics

    The college of Aerospace Engineering at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics
is one of the most important teaching and research bases of China in aeronautics and astronautics. The college has excellent teaching and research facilities, and boasts a faculty renowned for both teaching and scholarship, including 3 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Academy of Engineering. In its 60 years’ history, the college has brought up a great number of advanced talents and experts, and gained substantial achievements in scientific research, and thus has greatly contributed to the development of national higher education and the modernization of national defense.



4. School of Astronautics in Harbin Institute of Technology

    School of Astronautics was approved by China National Space Administration on June 1987. It is made by control engineering, radio engineering, mechanics, and aircraft research. It is the first school for cultivating senior space talent and spaceflight technology.



5. College of Aerospace Science and Engineering National University of Defense Technology

    The College of Aerospace and Materials Engineering was originally founded in 1959 as the Department of Missile Engineering of the Military Academy of Engineering at Harbin in Heilongjiang Province. The college, featuring aerospace and new materials technology, mainly engages in cultivating top-level talent and scientific research in the fields of aircraft design technology (for various aircraft such as satellites, missiles, etc.), propulsion technology, control and test launching technology, new materials technology and applied chemistry.



6. School of Aerospace Engineering in Beijing Institute of Technology

    The School of Aerospace Engineering in Beijing Institute of Technology originated from a unit with three designated majors including rocket design, rocket propulsion and rocket guidance technology in 1957. It was reconstructed into the department of flight vehicle engineering in 1961. The school had since then witnessed the success of a great number of excellent alumni working in aerospace engineering and defense related fields. In 2008, the School of Aerospace Engineering was rejuvenated with a new mission in educating outstanding professionals and conducting original research in aerospace engineering. The school now consists of four departments, i.e., flight vehicle engineering, flight control, launching and propulsion engineering, and mechanics, plus three research centers including the deep space exploration, distributed system of space flight vehicle, and dynamics and controls for flexible space structures. Enjie Luan, member of Chinese Academy of Science, standing member of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, director of Science and Technology Committee of the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (STCCSTIND), is appointed the honorary dean of School of Aerospace Engineering.



7. School of Aeronautics and astronautics in Zhejiang University

    School of Aeronautics and Astronautics (SAA) was founded in January 2007. The school is
dedicated to develop disciplines of aerospace science and technology, as well as those related subjects such as mechanics. The basic orientation is: to be closely combined to the country’s demands for constructing major projects, to seek in practice the key directions of development, to be an integrated and compact top-ranked research platform for aerospace science and technology; to become an active advocate and participant of the pilot and innovative researches in the field of aerospace, which are of great significant to the nation’s development; to play the important role of major driving force to develop the civil and national defense scientific research.



8. School of Aerospace in Tsinghua University

    The School of Aerospace of Tsinghua University was founded in 2004 on the on the basis of
the Department of Engineering Mechanics and recruited some faculty members from other departments and universities. The research in mechanics of the school is highly recognized. It is locating the leading edge in the nation and has international reputation. We have very strong faculty members. Many of them are playing active and important roles in academic societies, conference and journal editing. We have received many research awards on the ministry and nation level.



9. College of Aerospace and Civil Engineering in Harbin Engineering University

    The College of Civil Engineering includes 5 regular undergraduate programs. They are Civil
Engineering, Building Environment and Equipment Engineering, Water Supply and Sewerage Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, and Flight Vehicle Design and Engineering. The College confers master's degrees in Solid Mechanics, Structural Engineering, Thermal Power Engineering, Aerospace Propulsion Theory and Engineering, General and Fundamental Mechanics, Engineering Mechanics, Flight Vehicle Design, Engineering Thermophysics, Disaster Prevention and Reduction Engineering and Protective Engineering, and Man-Machine and Environmental Engineering. Furthermore, doctoral degrees are conferred in Solid Mechanics, General and Fundamental Mechanics, and Engineering Mechanics. Particularly, Solid Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering are respectively the key disciplines in the Commission of Science Technology and Industry for National Defense and Heilongjiang province.



10. The School of Physics and Mechanical & Electrical Engineering in Xiamen University

    The Department of Aeronautics of Xiamen University was re-established on 6th April 2008.
Yet, as one of the earliest universities housing aviation education in China, Xiamen University began its aviation education in 1944. In 1951, the department merged into Tsinghua University, and then later in 1952 formed the basis of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The department has many distinguished alumni who have had great contributions to aerospace industries in China, such as Qixian Zhang and Yijian Chen, members of Chinese Academy of Engineering and adjunct professors of Xiamen University.
