Solid and Engineering Mechanics


The Mechanics at Wuhan University is the key discipline of Hubei Province, and it possesses two doctoral-accredited fields, including Solid Mechanics and Engineering Mechanics.

In keeping with our emphasis on advanced and professional learning, we have designed various courses that cater to PhD candidates at multiple levels and dedicated to enhancing their abilities in basic theories, profound and systematic specialized knowledge, international vision, innovative spirit, scientific research, problem solving in engineering fields and other areas. All of the programs and experiments prepare them for either a professional or academic position.
