1. Introduction
Mechanics and Ballistics, founded in 1960, is a national key discipline. It offers bachelor, master and doctoral degrees, and post-doctoral program as well. The mechanics discipline, based on the mechanics theory and its applications, focuses on the fundamental theory, numerical simulations and test techniques for systems of civil use and military use. As a project technical chief or technology topics chief, our school presided over and completed a lot of key projects, including 6 items of the State 973 Projects, 5 items of the 863 Projects, 4 items of the National Security Specials, more than 100 items of the National Natural Science Foundations, national & ministerial key projects, and 3 items of international cooperation projects, with a total research funding of more than RMB300 million. Among them, 2 items won the National Technology Invention Second Prizes (ranking 1st) and 2 items won the National Science & Technology Progress Second Prizes (ranking 3rd). Our school has more than 90 invention patents authorized, and over 10 monographs and 500 SCI and EI papers published. Among the faculty members are more than 20 high-level talents, including academicians, the State 973 Technical Chiefs, New Century Excellent Talents, etc. The school has the Transient Physics State Key Laboratory, and the Mechanical Experiment Demonstration Center of Jiangsu Province, the total value of the experimental equipment exceeding one hundred million. The laboratories cover an area of more than 20,000 square meters, and have a collection of more than 20 million books.

5. Curriculum

6. Thesis Topic and Proposal
A master student is supposed to choose his/her research direction under an advisor’s guidance. The student should actively study, research and survey in the chosen research direction. The student is expected to choose a research topic for the postgraduate thesis and confirm the significance of the topic in a thesis proposal. The thesis proposal should be submitted and defended at the beginning of the second year of study. 
Detailed regulations and requirements on master's thesis can be found in the "NJUST Regulations about the Topic Selection, Research Proposal and Composition of Postgraduate Theses and Dissertations".
7. Publication
Before graduation, each master student should have at least one academic paper published or accepted for publication. Detailed requirements are documented in "NUST regulations on a postgraduate’s publications of their research work".
8. Degree Thesis Requirement
MA Degree thesis is one of the most important parts for graduate education, which provides students with training on academic research or specific technology application, enhances students’ abilities to innovate and to apply the knowledge to their research, and encourages them to discover, analyze and solve problems in their fields.
Detailed regulations and requirements on master's thesis are documented in the "NJUST Regulations about the Topic Selection, Research Proposal and Composition of Postgraduate Theses and Dissertations", and "NUST Style Sheet for Theses and Dissertations". For a joint effort with others, or a follow-up of previous work, the student should clearly specify his/her contribution to the thesis.
