Being Quadripartite-Established Double First-RateUniversity,
HEU Opens a New Chapter
Recently, the Ministry of Education officially announced that the approved and established seven international cooperation joint laboratories would provide powerful support for the Double First Rateconstruction. Harbin Engineering University is one of them. From the List of International Cooperation Joint Experiment Project Approval of 2019, the finalist Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Laboratory once again certifies the potent status of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Discipline, which has also been selected into the world-class disciplines and awarded A+ in the fourth round of national assessments.
In addition, 13 disciplines of HEU ranked the top 30% in China, whose Materials science, Engineering, and Chemistry have listed on the top 1% of ESI. HEU now has become a university quadripartite-established by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Education, the Heilongjiang Province People’s Government, and the Harbin Municipal People’s Government.
HEU, as a promising university, has the rich accumulation of scientific research. Here, dozens of scientific work, such as the first experimental submarine, the first hydrofoil, the first carrier computer, and the first strip sounder, filled up the domestic voidin the related fields. Scientific payoffs such as duplex submersibles, hovercrafts, and gradient sonic instruments are also the No.1 in the world.
HEU will hold the Xinghai Forum aiming at domestic and international young scholars in May 2019. We sincerely invite young talents to attend to learn more about this distinguished university!
Xing Hai Forum
The Xing Hai Forum aiming at the domestic andinternational young scholars has been held for three consecutive sessions. Itis intended to invite young talents at home and abroad who have different academic backgrounds to discuss and exchange ideas on international scientific frontiers, hot research areas and technical issues of related industries, further promoting the interdisciplinary research and academic innovation, and strengthening the understanding of outstanding young scholars about HEU, also, motivating the mutual enlightenment and facilitating the corresponding development.
Introduction on HEU
Harbin Engineering University is located in Harbin, the Northland Ice City, which is beside the beautiful Songhua River.The predecessor of HEU, the People’s Liberation Army Military Engineering Institute was established in 1953. It was the largest comprehensive military technical college in the Far East at that time, namely the well-known “Ha Jun Gong”. In just 13 years, it has trained more than 200 academicians, generals, provincial and ministerial leaders, as well as tens of thousands of senior engineers for the New China. In addition, it created the China’s first experimental submarine, the first shipboard computer and dozens of first scientific achievements for P.R. China. Also, it has nurtured many famous universities as well, such as the National Defence Science and Technology University and the Nanjing University of Science and Technology.
HEU is now affiliated to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. It is one of the first batch of “211” Project for Key Construction Universities and “985” Innovative Platforms for Key Disciplines Project. In 2017, HEU has been on the list of Double First-Class Disciplines Universities. In 2018, HEU became a co-construction university of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the State Oceanic Administration. In 2019, this university has been co-constructed by four institutions, includingthe Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Education, the People’s Government of Heilongjiang Province, and the People’s Government of Harbin.
HEU has always adhered to serving the national strategy and national defence needs. It has become an important talent trainingand scientific research base in the field of “San Hai Yi He”（Ship Industry, Marine Equipment, Marine Engineering, Nuclear Application）.
Now from the perspective of first-level disciplines, HEU has 14 doctoral programs and 32 master programs, as well as 37 undergraduatead missions programs, 12 post-doctoral research stations, and 2 post-doctoral research programs. Additionally, HEU has one national first-level key discipline, one second-level key discipline, 11 national defence specialty disciplines and 7 national defence specialty majors. Meanwhile, its Materials Science, Engineering Science, and Chemistry have ranked the top 1% of ESI. HEU was also selected as one of the first universities to be awarded the “Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program”, and was included in the “21st Century Talents Strong Army Plan” by the Ministry of Education and the General Political Department. It is the only university supported by the Navy in the Northeast Chinafor the selection and training of reserve officers. HEU is making great effort to develop the regional economy by science and technology, in which process anumber of university-enterprise and university-local government science and technology cooperation platforms have been established in the “Qing, Yan, Shen” areas. In 2018, the first phase of the Qingdao Innovation and Development Base of Harbin Engineering University was started, and the main buildings were finished during the same year. Qingdao Science and Technology Park of Harbin Engineering University has been identified as the civil-military Integration technology service institution, which opens up a whole new ball game in the construction of the tech industry platform. The Yantai Research Institute that is targeting at the “Ocean Work” started to construct, and the Shenzhen Ocean Research Institute which is targeting at “Ocean Information” has signed a joint construction agreement. Scientific achievements including marine engineering, artificial intelligence, and high-end equipment manufacturing have landed in Harbin Bihai Industrial Park.
The scientific prowess of HEU has been continuously enhanced. In 2018, the research funding reached 1.53 billion CNY, and the per capita research funding exceeded one million CNY, which ranked the top four in China.
