Mechanical engineering: master’s degree in engineering 

It’s a great event in the history of our country’s development in engineering degree and graduate education to establish the master degree of engineering, to cultivate engineering master and to found educational instruction committee. Through program of studying while taking positions, masters of engineering can combine their theses with the working realities, which not only helps solve the company’s actual problems, but also trains their talents of high level. At the same time, with the help of education for engineering masters, we can enhance company’s innovative abilities and stabilize its backbones of human resources.

Approved by the State Council, ZhejiangUniversity started to recruit engineering master graduates in mechanical engineering and other realms. The cultivation of engineering masters is based on the Institute of Mechatronic Control Engineering, the Institute of Mechanical Design, the Institute of Engineering and Computer Graphics and the Institute of Modern Manufacturing Technology. Now we have a faculty of 148, among whom 30 are professors, 180 are doctor students and 286 are master students.

Since 1998 ZhejiangUniversity has recruited about 220 engineering master students for six times. The companies where we have curriculum for engineering masters are as follows: Daqing Oilfield, Juhua Group Corporation, Hangzhou Gearbox Group Corporation, Wanxiang Group Corporation, Shanghai Baosteel and so many so on.

All the teachers for major courses have the title above the rank of associate professor, from which 43% are professors, and 77.2% are teachers with PhD.

Research areas for engineering masters:

Mechanical design and theory, machinery manufacturing and automation, mechatronic engineering, engineering graphics, fluid transmission and control, mechatronic control and automation, precision instrument and machinery, vibration and shock noise, vehicle engineering, industrial engineering, etc.

Dissertation subject for engineering master degree should be derived directly from each company’s real programs, or it should have a clear production background and application value. The subject could be a complete engineering design project or a technical renovation program, or new technique, new material, new equipment, or the research and development of new products. The thesis subject should be technologically difficult and advanced; also it should contain enough workload and reflect the author’s comprehensive ability of using science theory, research and technical methods to solve real engineering problems.

Dissertation form: (1) Engineering design and product development report; (2) Research papers.

Review and Defense:

The evaluation standard for engineering master degree thesis should emphasize the author’s comprehensive ability of using science theory, research and technical methods to solve real engineering problems and emphasize technological difficulties, advancement and workload; what’s more, attention should be paid to the author’s new thoughts, new solutions and new progress in settling real engineering problems; of course, their new techniques, new technologies and new design should be high-level and practical, and the possibility of bringing about economic and social benefits should be investigated.

Engineering master students must finish all the elements in the training scheme; they can apply for the thesis defense for master degree only after they pass bottom line of performance. There should be 3 experts as reviewers and five experts as defense judges, and at least two of them are senior experts are from the engineering front.


Power engineering: master’s degree in engineering


 It’s a great event in the history of our country’s development in engineering degree and graduate education to establish the master degree of engineering, to cultivate engineering master and to found educational instruction committee.

At the same time, with the help of education for engineering masters, we can enhance company’s innovative abilities and stabilize its backbones of human resources.

Approved by the State Council, ZhejiangUniversity started to recruit engineering master graduates in power engineering and other realms. The cultivation of engineering masters is based on the institute for thermal power engineering, the institute of thermal science & power system. Power engineering and engineering thermophysics is one of the first national key subjects and also one of the state‘211’ key construction subjects. Now we have a faculty of 148, among whom 45 are professors, 185 are doctor students and 162 are master students.

All the teachers for major courses have the title above the rank of associate professor, from which more than 70% are professors, and many famous professors like CenKefa, one of the academicians in China’s academy of engineering, gave the lecture of boiler monography, which was commonly praised and commented.

Research areas:

1.      Combustion Pollution and Treatment

2.      Energy Utilization of Biomass and Waste

3.      Renewable Energy Utilization

4.      Novel Coal Technology

5.      Flue Gas Desulfurization Theory and Technology

6.      Operation optimization and control of steam turbosets

7.      Fault diagnosis and analysis in power plants

8.      Thermodynamic control theory and engineering application

9.      Cogeneration of Heat, Electricity and Fuel Gas

Engineering master students must get at least 28 course credits. Besides Master English, they should also learn courses like nature dialectics, scientific socialism theory and practice, numerical analysis, senior heat transfer, senior combustion science, modern cybernetics, etc. Moreover, they need to read some related articles and attend some lectures or academic reports.
