Mar 6, 2023

I. Measurement and Control Technology and Instruments

Compared with other similar universities in China, the talent training system of Measurement and Control in China Jiliang University (CJLU) is with distinct characteristics of metrology. Through teaching of module courses with metrology characteristics and professional courses reformed according to metrology characteristics, students' metrology consciousness and technology ability are cultivated, which makes them have characteristic competitive advantages.  They will become compound engineering and technical talents engaged in scientific research, technology development, production practice, and related quality management and marketing in the fields of measurement and testing, precision measurement, intelligent instruments, process testing and control.

The major of Measurement and Control Technology and Instruments began to enroll undergraduates in 1986, and has a history of nearly 40 years. The major of Measurement and Control Technology and Instruments is one of the first national first-class undergraduate majors, which is the first national characteristic major, and Zhejiang province’s advantageous major. It has passed the national  professional certification for engineering education, has been selected into the "Excellent Engineer Program" of the Ministry of Education, and has opened up an excellent engineer class. Having the right to confer doctoral and master degrees in the discipline of Instrument Science and Technology, and the right to confer master degrees in Electronic Information, the scale of postgraduate education ranks first among CJLU.

There are many practice platforms, including the national experimental teaching model center, the national virtual simulation experimental teaching center, the national off-campus practice education base, and the industry and education integration model base of Zhejiang province, providing high-quality teaching resources for high-level engineering talent training. Relying on these practice platforms and the "Excellent Engineer Program" of the Ministry of Education, we have opened up three classes in the name of the enterprises with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence (Qingdao) Co., Ltd., GRGT, and Tokyo Seimitsu (Shanghai) Co., Ltd for "3 + X" engineering talent cultivation. The practical ability, innovation ability and learning ability of our students are highly praised by employers and universities they went for further study.


II. Intelligent Sensing Engineering

Intelligent Sensing Engineering is a new undergraduate major newly established by the Ministry of Education. China Jiliang University is the only university in Zhejiang province that sets up this major, and has enrolled students since 2021. Having the right to confer doctoral and master degrees in the discipline of Instrument Science and Technology, and the right to confer master degrees in Electronic Information, the scale of postgraduate education ranks first among CJLU.

The major of Intelligent Sensing Engineering cultivates compound talents of engineering and technology, who are with integrity and competence, healthy in physical and mental way, cling to social responsibility and professional ethics, and have the consciousness of innovation, the consciousness of lifelong learning, and the consciousness of metrology, have the international vision, and also possess the scientific thinking pattern to solve complex engineering problems in the field of intelligent sensing engineering. Students are cultivated to master the ability of practicing, team-working, communicating, managing, independently learning, which helps them be engaged in scientific research, technological development, and productive practice in the fields of intelligent measurement, intelligent manufacturing, intelligent equipment, intelligent city, and artificial intelligence, etc. Intelligent Sensing Engineering and Measurement and Control Technology and Instruments are two majors for undergraduate students in College of Metrology and Measurement Engineering of CJLU, both of which are corresponding to the discipline of Instrument Science and Technology in the period of graduate study. Compared with Measurement and Control Technology and Instruments, Intelligent Sensing Engineering focuses on the intelligent sensing methods and technology, and the design and application of intelligent sensors.

1. Based on the industry of measurement and quality inspection, talents of intelligent sensing engineering with characteristics are cultivated;

2. The major relies on Instrument Science and Technology, the first-class discipline of Zhejiang province with top priority;

3. Students have access to the national experimental teaching model center, the national virtual simulation experimental teaching center, the national teaching team, the national quality courses, the national off-campus practice education base, and the overseas practice education base.


III. Energy and Power Engineering

Energy and Power Engineering is a national first-class undergraduate major, a new characteristic major in Zhejiang Province, and a key major in Zhejiang province. The history of this major can be traced back to the early stage of the school, which was developed from the major of thermal metrology. It is the first undergraduate majo in energy and power in Zhejiang province. The major relies on professional discipline of power engineering and engineering thermophysics, which has the right to confer a professional degree in energy and power.

In response to the needs of efficiency and low-carbon in the energy field, this major is based in Zhejiang province, and serves the integrated development strategy of the Yangtze River Delta. By adhering to the education philosophy of “Metrology as University’s Cornerstone, Standards as its Code of Conduct, and Quality as its Career Goal”, this major constructs an energy and power talent training system with measurement and testing characteristics under the background of "new engineering". This major integrates awareness of metrology and standards and ability training into the curriculum system and practical teaching. This major is committed to cultivate talents with social sense of responsibility, innovation spirit and international vision, with solid mathematical foundation, humanistic quality, strong measurement testing and analysis ability, who also master the basic theories and professional knowledge of  efficient and clean utilization of energy and other related fields.

The talent training mode has obvious advantages. By giving full play to the development advantages of the new economy in Zhejiang province, this major strengthens the integration of industry and university, and build a multi-mode practice teaching platform combining resources inside and outside CJLU. This major introduces project teaching, strengthen the cultivation of innovation and engineering practice ability, and enhance students' ability to solve complex engineering problems.
