Research Disciplines

Harbin Institute of Technology have made a lot of achievements in academic in the past years.

And we are taking more and more effort in improving our academic level and providing a better environment for research.

Mechanics

In 1952, HIT founded its discipline of mechanics. Now, this discipline consists of 110 faculty members, including four members of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), one member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), one member of the Academy of Europe, two World Fellows, and one vice president of the International Committee on Composite Materials.

Civil Engineering and Architecture

Civil engineering and architecture make up a powerful group at HIT—consisting of civil engineering at the core and also including related areas of study, such as architecture and transportation engineering. This discipline arose from the railway construction program, which made up part of HIT at the beginning in 1920.

Aerospace Science and Engineering

With 20 successful microsatellite launches, HIT reached many firsts in the field of aerospace at home and abroad. On April 18, 2004, the Shiyan-1 satellite—the first microsatellite developed independently by Chinese universities, including HIT—was successfully launched. It completed the first satellitebased three-dimensional surveying and mapping of the Earth. Some of the other successfully launched HIT satellites include the Longjiang-1 and Longjiang-2 satellites to the Moon.

Space Environment Simulation Research Infrastructure

HIT's Space Environment Simulation and Research Infrastructure (SESRI) is a ground-based large-scale space science and technology experimental platform. Currently under construction at HIT, SESRI will go into service to users around the world in 2022. It is designed for studying basic scientific issues in space materials, devices, magnetospheric physics, and other areas—all with world-leading capabilities of simulating a wide range of factors in a space environment.
