The College of Mechatronics and Control Engineering (CMCE) evolved from the Department of Precision Instrument founded in 1984 with the support of Tsinghua University. CMCE aims to provide an exceptional education that combines knowledge attainment and application, preparing future engineers with broad horizon, solid practical skills and innovative spirit.
CMCE is now home to two departments, namely, the Department of Mechatronic Engineering and the Department of Control Engineering with nearly 90 faculty members, including 21 full professors and 24 associate professors. More than 60% of the faculty members have overseas study/work experience.
CMCE offers two undergraduate programs in Mechanical Design Manufacture and Automation and Automation with an enrollment of over 1,200 students, three master’s degree programs in Mechanical Engineering, Control Engineering, and Transportation Engineering and a second-tier discipline PhD program in Optomechatronics Engineering with a total graduate enrollment of about 600 students. Students must complete no less than 142 credits towards graduation from the Department of Mechatronic Engineering, and no less than 140 credits towards graduation from the Department of Control Engineering. Core courses of the Department of Mechatronic Engineering include Engineering Drawing, Mechanics, Mechanical Theory, Design & Manufacturing, Engineering Materials, Electrical and Electronic Technology, CNC Technology, Forming Process, CAD/CAM and Finite Element Method. Core courses of the Department of Control Engineering are Circuit Analysis, Analog/Digital Electronic Technology, Motor Drive, Automatic Control Theory, Principle of Microcontroller and Interface Technology, Signals & Systems, Sensor and Detection Technology, PLC Control and Robotics.
CMCE boasts excellent facilities for research, including a provincial key laboratory on Micro/Nano Optomechatronics, three municipal key laboratories and seven research institutes on Precision Engineering, Nanosurface Science and Engineering, Additive Manufacturing, Human Factors and Ergonomics, Electromagnetic Control, Intelligent Detection, Power Electronics and Smart Grid and Robotics and Intelligent Equipment.
