School of Architecture and Civil Engineering

Introduction to theSchoolofArchitecture

Architecture and Engineering College of Harbin University of science and technology was established in 2005, which has three undergraduate majors, including architecture, civil engineering or mechanical engineering. At present, there are 712 undergraduates in school, a staff of 46 and 40 teaching staff, including 5 professors and 10 associate professors. In teachers there is one New Century Excellent Talents of Ministry of Education, one Specially-appointed Professor of Longjiang Scholar, one winner ofHeilongjiangProvinceeminent youth fund, one winner of Heilongjiang Province Youth Science and Technology Prize, two First Class Registered Architects and three First Class Registered Engineers. There are 5 teachers with doctor's degree, 27 teachers with Master's Degree, 1 doctorial tutor and 2 master instructors. College has also recruited a group of well-known scholars as part-time professor, which has formatted a rational constructive and energetic teaching staff.

College has foundedEngineering Mechanics, BuildingEnergy-saving, Building Models, Building Surveying, Building Materials, Soil Mechanics and Foundation Laboratories, which possesses many advanced equipments used for teaching and science research. Its building area is about 1600 square meters. In recent years, College teachers have presided and participated a number of national and provincial scientific research projects, including the National “863”project, the National “973”projects, the National Defense “973”project, National Nature Science Fund Project, the Education Department of Heilongjiang Province and manyHorizontal topics.In recent years, over 100 papers have been published, over 50 of which were collected in SCI, EI, and over 10 textbooks have been published.

The college attaches great importance to domestic and foreign academic exchanges and cooperation. In recent years, we have invited specialists and scholars of foreign prominent university and research institution fromUniversityofNottinghamfrom theUK,UniversityofSheffield,University of WesternOntario, and Airbus of UKto give lectures. At the same time, college has established close cooperative relations with university and science and research institution such as Tsinghua University, Harbin Institute of Technology, Institute of chemistry of theChineseAcademyof Sciences, which effectively promoted the development of college teaching and subject construction.

College takes revitalizing the northeast old industrial base as the turning point, closely integrating with the city engineering construction development need, insisting on education direction of combining theory teaching with engineering practice ,forming rigorous, pragmatic, harmonious academic atmosphere and excellent education environment.


Looking into the future, the staff and students of the college will be adhering to the “Unity of knowing and doing, profound and long-standing” motto, advancing ahead in unity, pragmatic innovation, striving to build a high level architectural engineering institute of domestic college and contributing to local economic development and prosperity.
