Post-doctoral Research Station of Mechanic Engineering, built in 1997, involved into a first-category discipline: Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, and four second-category disciplines: Mechanical Manufacturing and Automation, Mechatronic Engineering, Mechanical Design and Theory, Vehicle Engineering. The station boasts a well-structured and academically active faculty which include 19 professors (research fellows) and 12 PhD supervisors. Major research areas include measurement and control theory and technology of mechatronic systems, machinery condition monitoring and fault diagnosis, mechanical CAD and new transmission machinery, computer-aided manufacturing technology, precision engineering and micro-mechatronic systems, reliability testing and evaluation, phononic crystals, and vibration and noise control.
The station covers an area over 6,500m2 and has three “211 Project” key laboratories: equipment mechatronic integration technology laboratory, reliability laboratory, mechanical CAD laboratory. The station also has NUDT key laboratories such as: machine condition monitoring and fault diagnostic laboratory, micro-mechatronic laboratory, and an advanced manufacturing technology laboratory.
