The College of Mechanical Engineering, together with the Inner Mongolia University of Technology, has been established and developed gradually within the past sixty-seven years. With the development of this University, the college has evolved four phrases: the metalworking department, the mechanical manufacture department, the mechanical department-I and the mechanical engineering department, which havedemonstrated its improved comprehensive capability.
For the past 67 years of constant striving, this college has achieved great success and cultivated nearly 20,000 highly qualified professionals for the nation and society, as a base of training mechanical professionals in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. At present this college enrolls more than 1,900 full-time students. The specialties established in this college meet social development and provided job opportunities on a more extensive scale with excellent employment quality.
A great effort has been placed on the development of discipline and specialty, which have led to the development of five mechanical relevant specialties: Mechanical Design, Manufacture and Automation, Mechanical Electronic Engineering, Measurement and Control Technology and Instrument, Industrial Engineering and Industrial Design. Among the aforementioned specialties, the Mechanical Design, Manufacture and Automation is honored with the autonomous region level of brand specialty, and the Measurement and Control Technology and Instrument is ranked as the university level of brand specialty.
The college has first-class disciplines in Mechanical Engineering and 4 master degree programs of second-class disciplines. The Mechanical Design and Theory, as well as Mechanical Design, Manufacture and Automation are the key disciplines of autonomous region level. There are 2 master degree programs of engineering that is Mechanical Engineering and Instrument Science and Technology.There are 112 faculties including 14 professors, 33 associate professors in this college. Among the currentfaculties, 28 have received Ph. D, 66 have received M. D and 20 faculties are elected as “New Century 321 TalentProject for the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region”.
Major emphasis is placedon the teaching quality and talent cultivation of undergraduate and graduate students in order to improving education self-consciously ceaselessly. There are 12 practical teaching bases such as Advanced Manufacture Laboratory, Center for Mechanical CAD, Mechanical Design Laboratory which is awarded as Provincial Experimental Teaching Demonstration Centre, and Electromechanical Control Laboratory which is awarded as Provincial Key Laboratory. Moreover, there are6 courses elected as Provincial Essence Courses.
The College of Mechanical Engineering takes the most advantages of itsintellectual resources to offer technical service for the society by all means. Currently five main provincial research institutions have been established: Institute for Mechanical Design Laboratory,Hydraulic Technology, Productive Force Promotion Center for Manufacturing Informatization, and Training Center for Manufacturing Informatization and Center for Mechanical CAD.
A great effort is paid to the construction of qualified teacher teams, taking the task of enhancing their teaching and research capabilities with ideological and moral quality.The college has won 1 first prize and 4 second prize of provincial level, and 13 provincial and ministerial third prizes.
