Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), established in 1952, is situated on the very site of the ancient Ming Palace of Nanjing. Its campus covers an area of 160 hectares, with a building floor space of 510,000 square metres. The library has a collection of over 1,000,000 volumes. NUAA is one of the key universities in China that offer courses in science and engineering and strives for the coordinated development mainly in applied science, management, humanities and social sciences with the combined features of aeronautics, civil aviation and astronautics. It was also among the first batch of institutions of higher learning authorized to grant degrees of doctor, master and bachelor. In 1996 it succeeded in becoming one of China#s 100 key universities for the 21st century (China#s 211 Project).
NUAA consists of 10 colleges as follows: College of Aerospace Engineering, College of Energy and Power Engineering, College of Automation Engineering, College of Information Science and Technology,
College of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, College of Material Science and Technology, College of Civil Aviation, College of Sciences, College of Economics and Management, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, in addition to the Graduate School, College of Continuing Education, College of Rural Enterprises and Evening College. There are as many as 27 programs with 50 majors, among which, 42 offer master#s degrees and 21 doctor#s degrees. There are 3 national key programs: Aircraft Design, Mechanical Manufacture and Automation, and Fluid Mechanics; 4 are key programs at the provincial level: Engineering Mechanics, Aerospace Propulsion theory and Engineering, Navigation, Guidance and Control, and Power Electronics & Power Transmission. In addition, 4 postdoctoral exchange centres have been set up, i.e. Aerospace Science and Technology, Mechanical Engineering, Dynamics and Control Science and Engineering.
NUAA has set up as many as 50 research institutes, such as Pilotless Aircraft Research Institute and Helicopter research institute , and 58 laboratories, among which 1 is a key national laboratory, 2 are key provincial laboratories, 5 are key ministerial laboratories and 1 is a national base for the instruction of Electronics and Electronic Engineering. NUAA enjoys best facilities either for both teaching and scientific research.
NUAA now has over 131,00 students pursuing degree programs at different levels. Among them.11,100 are undergraduates and about 2,000 postgraduate students. It has a staff of 2,450,among whom 1,380 are faculty members and researchers including 160 professors and 540 associate professors. Six are nationally renowned professors, and 73 renowned provincially. NUAA takes quality education as its basis and the cultivation of students# ability as its focus, coordinates production, learning and research, and gradually sets up a system which trains talented people, providing them with a good knowledge of aeronautics, civil aviation and astronautics. As a result, a lot of high-level achievements have been made in teaching. During the initial period of the 9th five-year plan, NUAA won 30 provincial awards and 3 national awards.
NUAA has very strong advantages in the research and application of basic science, the application of basic science and the development of high technology. NUAA has developed "CK" series of super pilotless aircraft, AD series of super-light airplanes and other series of helicopters that have filled gaps in these fields which previously existed in China and also measured up to the advanced world standards. It has also made many breakthroughs in several key projects concerning aeronautic and astronautic research and national defense programs. According to the statistics issued by the Ministry of Education, NUAA remained one of the ten top universities for 7 consecutive years (from 1991 to 1997) in terms of the total number of achievements and awards in scientific research.
NUAA has taken great interest in international academic exchanges and scientific cooperation. Since 1987,over 1,000 persons have been sent to as many as 34 countries and regions for advanced studies, academic exchanges and cooperation. At the same time, about 1,600 professors and scientists from 40 countries and regions have been invited to give lectures and make visits to NUAA Long-term cooperative agreements have also been signed between NUAA and over 20 universities in Germany, France, Russia, UK and USA. Close ties have been established between NUAA and famous international institutions and foreign enterprises.
