031 School of Aerospace Engineering 2024


As the oldest department in its category in China, the Aerospace Engineering program at Tsinghua can be traced back to 1930s when the first research group of aerospace engineering was established in our country. The modern School of Aerospace Engineering was founded in 2004, primarily based on the Department of Engineering Mechanics and Mathematics (established in 1958). Currently, the school consists of two departments, the Department of Engineering Mechanics (4 institutes) and the Department of Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering (5 institutes), with the addition of two research centers, i.e. Aerospace Technology Research Center and Space Center.


——The mechanics discipline has risen as a first-class subject with a notable influence and important academic status at an international level. In the past five years, more than 60 national invention patents were granted, and over 1,000 high-level journal papers were published.

——The Department of Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering has been actively involved in many key engineering projects including “Tsinghua gravity and atmosphere scientific satellite” and the large aircraft C919 program, etc. On August 6,2020, Tsinghua gravity and atmosphere scientific satellite, or Q-SAT, developed by the department, was successfully launched. It is the first satellite for atmosphere and gravity field measurement in China. In the past few years, the department has won many international competition awards, such as the second place in the 2015 international competitions on trajectory optimization. Besides, research collaboration and academic exchanges have been fostered with many prestigious national and international universities and institutes.

——The institute of engineering thermal physics was founded in 1958. Since then heat transfer and combustion have become two main research fields, covering heat transfer optimization, energy efficiency systems and clean combustion in the fields of nanotechnology, energy engineering and aerospace. The institute of thermal physics has obtained ten national awards. Besides one international cooperation laboratory, the institute has also built three Key Laboratories of Beijing and the Ministry of Education.
