Industrial and Internet Engineering

The Department of Industrial and Internet Engineering is mainly responsible for the teaching and cultivation of the undergraduate majoring Industrial Engineering and the Master of Engineering Management at the School of Mechanical-Electronic and Vehicle Engineering. The Department holds an excellent teaching team.

The research interests of the Department include human factors engineering and virtual reality technology, information systems and big data analytics, emergency management in resilient cities, etc. The Department has cultivated over 50 Master students. More than 30 government-sponsored research projects have been completed or undertaken, including the National Key Research and Development Program, the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the Beijing Natural Science Foundation, and the Ministry of Science and Technology Support Program. Over the years, the Department has maintained broad cooperative relationships with research institutes, such as Tsinghua University, Beijing Jiaotong University, and China National Institute of Standardization.

The Department holds a world-leading virtual simulation laboratory, simulation line of industrial production, production operation simulation, and many other platforms. Relying on above experimental equipment, our students won various competition awards, such as "Yongyou Cup" National College Student Sand Table Competition and Beijing Machinery Innovation Competition.

Vehicle engineering

Vehicle engineering is the only undergraduate major in the design, manufacturing and service performance guarantee of urban rail transit vehicles, scientific research and social services in Beijing Municipal Colleges and universities. Relying on the off campus talent training base and Beijing Key Laboratory, the "OBE" teaching concept and system are constructed, the excellent training is carried out, and the spiral training focusing on innovation ability is carried out Thinking into the whole process of vehicle engineering professional training.

This major is a national first-class major and a Beijing first-class major, with Beijing teaching team and the first prize of Beijing teaching achievement. All full-time teachers have doctoral degrees, including 6 professors, 2 associate professors and 6 lecturers. More than 100 vertical and horizontal scientific research projects have been completed and under research, including national key R & D projects, National Natural Science Foundation of China and Beijing Natural Science Foundation. With advanced experimental equipment, we guide students to obtain more than 200 provincial and ministerial awards in Beijing and national mechanical innovation competition.

Robotic Engineering
