Harbin Engineering University (HEU)
Study Engineering at Harbin Engineering University (HEU)

HEU is a national key university of glorious history and fine traditions. It is among the first batch of "211 Project" universities that are entitled to enjoy first priority from the state in construction and development and also one of the universities that have Graduate School. Moreover, HEU is an important base for talent cultivation and scientific research in the fields of ship industry, ocean exploration and nuclear application.

The predecessor of HEU is PLA Military Engine Institute established in 1953 (abbr.HME). In 1970, in the former location, Harbin Ship Engineering Institute was founded by the entire crew of naval engineering department and some other cadre teachers of every other department, and it was renamed Harbin Engineering University in 1994. HEU was selected as a national key university by the State Council in 1978, authorized by the State Council to award master and doctoral degrees in the first batch in 1982, selected as one of the first few "211 Project " universities to receive preferential support from the state in 1996, and authorized by the ministry of Education to have Graduate School in 2002. Currently, HEU is subordinate to the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense and being constructed with priority by the Commission together with Heilongjiang Provincial People's Government.

In the course of over half a century, HEU has formed a well-structured discipline system that is characterised by a reasonable coordinated development of major disciplines in the fields of ship industry, ocean exploration and nuclear application together with related disciplines of other fields. Now there are 50 specialties for undergraduates, 93 specialties for Master candidates, 25 specialties for Doctoral candidates, 9 post-doctoral mobile stations, and 1 post-doctoral research station. The specialties cover 7 discipline group and 37 first-class disciplines. There are 3 national key disciplines of underwater acoustic engineering, design and manufacture of ships and marine structures, navigation, guidance and control ; 7 national defense key disciplines - nuclear science and engineering, marine hydrodynamics, special auxiliary device system, signal and information Processing, etc. In addition, naval architecture and ocean engineering, thermal energy and power engineering, nuclear engineering and nuclear technology have been entitled national defense key specialities, and automation as well as 7 other specialties Heilongjiang provincial key specialties.

About Harbin City:
Harbin (Ha'erbin), The capital of Heilongjiang Province, North of China, Harbin developed rapidly during the early-mid 20th century thanks to the construction of the Trans-Siberian Express Railroad. Located on the Songhuajiang River, Harbin became a major trading outpost for domestic trade and international trade with Russia. This Russian influence can be seen in many of the buildings and churches around the town, and there are more Russian speakers in Harbin than English speakers in the city.

Harbin is a place of many contradictions. increasing huge and stark skyscrapers, but also winding streets of quaint, colonial architecture, and impressive Siberian Tiger conservation policies. These contradictory scenes continue back in time, so that the history of Harbin is one of turbulence and economic prosperity. Nowadays this old Chinese outpost is a place not overly visited by travelers, for the popular Ice Lantern Festival and its beautiful snow resorts during the cold winters and summer grass sleding down the mountains. Anyone interested in history, Russian or Japanese architecture, skiing, tigers, or traveling on the Trans-Siberian Railway could visit Harbin.
