Welcome to Our School

Welcome to the site for The School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (SMAE) at Jilin University. SMAE was founded in 2018, based on the former College of Mechanical Science and Engineering, whose history dates back to 1955. We maintain a free and vibrant academic culture and aspire to contribute to innovation that benefits mechanical industry, society and the world through research and education.

After 65 years’ development, we are widely recognized as the base for high-level professional training and technological innovations in the equipment manufacturing industry, with nearly 1800 undergraduate students and more than 900 postgraduate students studying here. Currently, there are 5 undergraduate degree programs, 6 doctoral programs, all of which accept international students. Besides, there are 2 post-doctoral workstations in Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics.

We have made positive social contribution through a thorough talent cultivating system and obtained outstanding reputation in teaching and research. We have cultivated more than 20,000 excellent talents all over the world, including academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, university presidents, industry leaders and academic experts and thus are regarded as the cradle for China’s automotive talents.

The mission of SMAE is to foster creative and integrative talents capable of taking leadership position in the areas of mechanical engineering and mechanics. Under this mission, we will explore new methods of engineering education, improve the international perspective and cross-discipline ability of students, and continue to strive for the cultivation of leading talents who will meet today's society needs and adapt to future changes.

We embrace international collaboration opportunities and warmly welcome you to join us as students and staff.
