Additionally, Collaborative Innovation Center of Major Machine Manufacture in Liaoning got the certificates of national accreditation.
SME has signed cooperative training agreements with UCI, ASU, the University of Queensland and other foreign universities. SME can recommend excellent students to have further study at home and abroad.
1. Mechanical Design Manufacture and Automation Major
Mechanical Design Manufacture and Automation has become the national special major through the certification of national engineering education in 2010. It has evaluated by experts in 2016. Students who study this major are primarily being trained to learn basic theories and techniques of mechanical design manufacture and automation, get basic knowledge of micro electronic technology, computer technology and information processing technology, and receive fundamental training of modern mechanical engineer. The major cultivates mechanical senior talents who have mechanical engineering technology basis and industrial management knowledge, are able to engage in the design, manufacture and research of mechanical and electrical integration equipment, the research and manufacture of major mechanical equipment system, and have the ability to research, develop and manage advanced technology. This major has 4 directions, including Mechanical Manufacturing and Automation, Mechanical Design and Automation, Mechatronic Engineering and Hoisting Machinery.
2. Measurement and Control Technology and Instrument Major
Students who study this major are primarily being trained to learn the mechanics of precision instruments, electrics and optics fundamental theory, measurement and control theory and design method about measurement and control instruments. They receive the training of modern measurement and control technology and instrument application in order to have the ability of using as well as designing and developing measurement and control technology and instrument system, basic theories and techniques of mechanical design manufacture and automation, get basic knowledge of micro electronic technology, computer technology and information processing technology, and get fundamental training of modern mechanical engineer. The major cultivates senior engineering and technical talents who have the basic knowledge and application ability of precision instrument design and manufacture as well as measurement and control, and are able to engage in the design and manufacture, technology and development, application and research, and operations management parts about technology, instruments and system in the measurement and control field.
