Introduction of Materials Processing Engineering
Materials Processing Engineering is an applied fundamental discipline, which focuses on the interrelations among materials preparation, forming processing technology, control approach for forming processing and materials structure and characteristics. Its main task is to provide scientific basis for materials preparation, processing production, forming processing optimization and processing technology, equipment and the control methods for advanced materials.
The Materials Processing Engineering discipline of USTB was formed based on the united of three units, including Department of Metal Forming (established in 1952 ), specialty of Foundry Technology and specialty of Advanced Materials Welding Technology. Materials Processing Engineering is the National Key Discipline and the Key Developing Discipline of the National “211” project. It has been entitled to offer research stations for post - doctoral studies and has positions for special accommodated professors engaged by the “Yangzi River Plan” approved by the State Education Ministry, and to offer the degrees of Engineering Doctor, Master, and Bachelor as well. From 1952 and the late of 50s, USTB began to recruit undergraduate students and post - graduate students of the specialty of Plastic Working for Metals, respectively. It was one of the first universities in China to offer the degrees of Master and Doctor in the specialty of Plastic Working for Metals in 1981. In the restructuring of the disciplines and specialties led by the State Education Ministry from 1998, the master and doctorate programs have been offered for the specialty of Material Processing Engineering from 2000 and undergraduate students of the specialty of Materials Forming and Control Engineering began to be recruited. In the past decades, the discipline has cultivated over 6000 undergraduate students, 600 masters and 100 doctors, completed more than 230 projects including national key research projects, promotion of science and technology, international collaboration and domestic enterprises cooperation. 50 research results were awarded with various prizes of the national level, the provincial level or the ministerial level. The academic reputation and achievement of the discipline are in the top rank in China and of great influence abroad. In the domestic discipline area of materials processing engineering, in the national research and production area, especially in the area of metallurgy, the discipline of Material Processing Engineering has played an important role in scientific technology progress and creation of social economical benefits. Meanwhile, an integrated, well - equipped scientific mechanism has been formed, which includes “One department ( Department of Materials Processing and Control Engineering ), two institutes ( Institute of Metal Forming and Institute of Foundry Technology ), National Engineering Center of High - Efficiency Rolling - Research and Center of Metal Electronic Information Materials Engineering approved by the State Education Ministry.
Currently, the discipline has 14 professors, 12 associate professors, 15 lecturers. Among them are 9 doctorial student supervisors, 1 special accommodated professor engaged bythe "Yangzi River Awarding Plan”, 1 elected member of the National “Millions of Outstanding Talents Project”, 1 awardee by “National Outstanding Youth Foundation”. In addition to the National Engineering Center of High - Efficiency Rolling, the discipline possesses 6 academic research directions, including: Advanced Materials Preparation and Processing, Materials Forming Processing Control and Simulation, Materials Processing Theory and Structure, Plastic Working New Processing and New Technology, Metal Solidification and Control and Advanced Materials Advanced Welding Technology.
At present, the Department of Materials Processing and Control Engineering and the Discipline Committee of Materials Processing Engineering are responsible for the organization and coordination of the teaching activities, scientific research and education as well as plan - making for the discipline development. Now, the leadership board consists of 4 members, Kang Yong-lin (dean), Ren Xue-ping (leader of the party branch), Liu Ya-zheng (vice dean), Mao Wei-min (vice dean). The discipline committee of Materials Processing Engineering is composed of 9 members, including Han Jing-tao (chairman), Xie Jian-xin, kang Yong-lin, Liu Ya-zheng, Wu Chun-jing, Wang Xian-jin, Huang Ji-hua, Mao Wei-min and Tang Di.
This program is avalaible for senior Scholars as advanced studies. Senior Scholars for advanced studies must complete relevant courses and programs in one year and will receive an advanced studies certificate.
