Engineering Mechanics


Mechanics is one of the seven foundation subjects of natural science. It provides support for many subjects, such as Civil Engineering, Water Resources, Mechanics Engineering, Power Engineering, Materials Engineering. Meanwhile, it is highly infiltrative with other relevant courses.

Engineering Mechanics is one of the engineering subjects featured with the basic theories and its wide applications. It can be used for training high-level talents, whom are required to possess strong mathematics, mechanics theoretical knowledge and high-skilled computer application abilities. The well-trained professional personnel will pursue their academic research, engineering design or technological development work in a variety of fields such as civil engineering, water resources and hydropower engineering, mechanics engineering, energy engineering, transportation and chemical engineering.

Main professional courses are: Advanced Mathematics, Linear Algebra, Probability and Mathematical Statistics, Ordinary Differential Equation, Computing Method, Advanced Programming Language, Theoretical Mechanics, Mechanics of Materials, Structural Mechanics, Elastic Mechanics, Plate Mechanics, Plastic Mechanics, Fracture Mechanics, Experimental Mechanics, Hydromechanics, Rock-soil Mechanics, Reinforced Concrete and Steel Structure.

Most of the graduates will pursue postgraduate studies. The graduates would have an excellent launching point for any career and profession in engineering design and research institutes, the large and medium-sized enterprises and engineering management department of the government, etc.
