Master in Mechanical Engineering Department of Automotive Engineering

Program Introduction
The history of the department can be traced back to 1932, when the study of automotive engineering began within the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The Department of Automotive Engineering became an independent department in 1980. Over the past several decades, the Department of Automotive Engineering has secured its leading position in higher education and in China's automotive industry and made it a center of automotive technology research and development in China. The department seeks to advance science and technology in the automobile industry through integration of fundamental professional knowledge and its application in automobile engineering. The department currently has 77 faculty and staff members, including 30 professors and 26 associate professors.

Students shall complete at least 26 degree credits from the following courses (about 9 courses) with a minimum of 17 coursework credits, excluding credits received for thesis work.
1) Required courses
