School of Energy and Power Engineering

The School of Energy and Power Engineering, dated back to the Dept. of Power Engineering, was founded in 1964. Being one of the oldest three departments, it has experienced a long historical path. Now the school consists of 7 professors (3 Doctor degree supervisors), 13 Associate Professors and 28 faculty members who hold Doctor and Master degrees (67% of total faculties). Currently there are 598 undergraduate students and 40 graduate students in this school. Since the founding more than 3000 B.S. students and about 200 Doctor and Master students have graduated from this branch.

Currently, the school holds the Postdoctoral Research Station in Power and Thermal Physics, and grants the doctoral degree inc and Fluid Machinery and the Master degree in Thermal Physics, Thermal Energy, and Fluid Machinery. Of the above, the Fluid Machinery Major is the National Key Major, and the Power Engineering is the Jiangsu Provincial Key Major. The School has two undergraduate majors: Thermal Energy and Power Engineering, and Fluid Machinery and Engineering. It has following special divisions: Fluid Machinery and Engineering, Thermal Energy Engineering, Thermal Physics, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning. There are 4 laboratories and 1 computation center.

Since the founding of the school, great success has been made in teaching, scientific research and training of qualified graduates. Our teachers pay great attention to the work in classroom and won first three prizes in teaching contests of the university many times. Our graduates have received high praises from their working units of industry and many have been promoted to important positions.

The school also achieved success in scientific research. Since the founding it has completed projects with 8 National Natural Science Funding, 2 Doctor Station Funding, 5 Young Scientists Funding, and more than 200 research projects of Provincial and Ministry's funding. Recent years we have published 200 more research articles with many being indexed by EI and SCI, and more than 10 academic books, There are also 20 more patents being granted.

The school has active academic exchange and cooperation with outside world. It has built the relationship with about 100 companies and research institutes in research and development of new technology. The academic exchange spans to universities of USA, Canada, Japan, Germany, Austria and Thailand, including scientific exchange and cooperation, scholar's exchange and personal training. Over 10 faculties who have studied abroad are now active in this school.

As we are stepping into the 21st century, the School of Energy and Power Engineering are striving towards the goal of providing a first-class education in the 21st century. Since the reform and open-door policy was put into practice, the School has initially formed the multilevel and multistandard style for advancing the engineering sciences. The department has conducted a series of reforms to improve our teaching with emphasis on research and innovation. These reforms aim to train 21st century professionals with breadth of knowledge, great motivation for their work, and ability to pursue scientific research.

We can hear the steps of the high-tech era, which challenges the School of Energy and Power Engineering to strive for ever higher goals. With the reform and opening to the outside world and with the educational system reform, the faculty of the School of Energy and Power Engineering welcome eagerly the challenges of the 21st century, and will contribute greatly to the advancement of Jiangsu University into a first-class university in China.
