Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) is a public university founded in the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone of China.
SUSTech offers an unparalleled learning and research experience at the scientific and technological frontiers.
SUSTech offers unprecedented opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to work alongside the faculty to explore and tackle both fundamental and practical problems.
The Global Engagement Office (GEO) is responsible for forming and implementing a coherent strategy to promote the University’s international development and global profile.
The undergraduate admission of SUSTech adopts comprehensive evaluation enrollment mode based on national college entrance examination.The graduate admission of SUSTech currently adopts joint training mode.
The SUSTech Education Foundation consists of board of directors, board of supervisors and secretariat. The board of directors is the top of the power structure of the foundation; the board of supervisors is responsible to check finance and accounting information in accordance with law and regulations; secretariat is the standing administrative unit of the foundation, which is responsible to the daily work of the foundation under the leading of leaders in the board of directors.
Recently, the discipline of Mechanics in the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering at SUSTech was granted the 2017 Guangdong Peak-Climbing key discipline by the Education Department of Guangdong Province, reflecting yet another departmental breakthrough.
There are four major types of Guangdong Province key disciplines: Peak-Climbing key disciplines, preponderant key disciplines, special key disciplines, and cultivation key disciplines. In 2017, 30 key disciplines were granted, including seven Peak-Climbing key disciplines. The Peak-Climbing key discipline is the leading discipline in the province, with the potential to become a national key discipline. Mechanics is the third Peak-Climbing key disciplines at SUSTech, after chemistry and physics.
The requirement to be one of the key disciplines in Guangdong Province is that the university shall take the lead in coordinating with top universities, both at home and abroad, and local governments to jointly build key disciplines, connecting closely to a modern industrial system, while promoting local economic and social development.
The Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering will collaborate with the Shenzhen government and Peking University to further enhance the key discipline. Peking University will support the Department with its rich experience with faculty members, teaching support and research.
Since the founding of the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering, it has attached great importance to the development of Mechanics. The approval of the Guangdong Peak-Climbing key discipline encourages the department to strengthen its capacity in research and teaching further. It is committed to developing the top-tier mechanical engineering faculty in the world.
