Education Programme for Undergraduates(English Version)

NPU Education Programme for Undergraduates

(QMUL Engineering School)


1. Programme Introduction

Materials are the basic necessity of human existence. Materials science and engineering is the foundation of science, technology, and manufacturing. As a syncretic discipline hybridising materials science, engineering, physics, and chemistry, materials science and engineering builds the foundation of aviation, marine engineering, new energy, information technology, renewable resources, and intelligent manufacturing. Material discipline, which covers metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites, is one of the most influential and distinct disciplines in Queen Mary University of London (hereinafter as QMUL). The Materials programme of QMUL provides elite education and professional training for students with a thorough grounding in the structure of materials, the properties of materials, the performance of materials and the manufacturing processes and design. The discipline has been rated as 5-star by the British government many times. A survey conducted by the National Union of Students in 2011 showed that it ranked top 1 in the UK. The Materials programmes in Northwestern Polytechnical University (hereinafter as NPU) enjoy a high reputation and a great popularity internationally. Materials Science and Engineering of NPU is the National Key Discipline and ranked top 3 among all National Key Disciplines in the 2012 Discipline Evaluation in China. NPU also has 6 scientific research and talent-training platforms at national level.

Approved by the Ministry of Education of China, NPU and QMUL have launched a joint educational institution named Queen Mary University of London Engineering School, Northwestern Polytechnical University (hereinafter as JEI), in order to provide Chinese students with typical British education that emphasises on developing undergraduate students’ innovation ability. The JEI, which builds on the acknowledged expertise and experience of the two universities and their complementary research strengths in materials science, fully uses educational resource advantages and high-level international cooperation platforms of both universities to provide a high quality degree level education in the programme of Materials Science and Engineering (080401H). The programme draws on the academic expertise of both institutions and adopts an international teaching mode with curriculum system, teaching materials, and assessment methods from the UK. The mission of this programme is to develop qualified and innovative talents who can study and work transnationally with the knowledge of natural science, materials science and engineering, and social science. Students graduate with comprehensive qualities, high professional competencies, a global horizon, a life-long study ability, and recognition of international rules.

2. Educational Aims

Under the guidance of Marxism, this programme aims to enhance morality and foster talents, to develop qualified and innovative talents who can study and work transnationally with the knowledge of natural science, materials science and engineering, and social science. Students graduate with comprehensive qualities, high professional competencies, a global horizon, a life-long study ability, and the recognition of international rules. Students who have completed their studies are able to pursue higher degrees and research within universities in China and internationally or careers in the expanding materials science and manufacturing industry in world famous enterprises.

(1)Be equipped with solid basic knowledge and professional skills

Students should master basic principles in materials science and engineering, experimental and computing methods in the field of engineering and materials science, and knowledge of material design and making, material forming and shaping, product design, and application development.

Students are able to solve technical problems in their professional field.

(2)Be equipped with international competitiveness

Students become highly proficient in English language: reading English materials and books in materials science, writing academic essays in English, and conducting technical presentations in English. The programme develops students’ global horizon and the recognition of international rules via the British teaching mode and overseas internship programme. Students can obtain, use and manage various information to conduct cross-cultural communication and cooperation with innovative abilities and international competitiveness. Students can recognize Chinese characteristics and international comparisons correctly, as well as comprehend modern China and the world objectively and comprehensively.

(3)Be equipped with the ability of life-long study

Students should stick to Marxist theory, promote and practice Socialist Core Values, recognize the responsibility of times and mission of history, and to understand ambition and dedication correctly. Students should have a strong sense of social responsibility, a healthy mental and moral state, the ability of leading and working in teams, and outstanding communicative and practical skills. Equipped with good presentation skills and writing abilities, students can communicate effectively with their peers and the public about complex engineering and scientific problems. The consciousness of life-long study can help students to adapt to dynamic changes, and master the cutting-edge knowledge and new trends in the field of materials science so as to constantly improve students’ abilities.

3. Educational Requirements

(1)Master basic knowledge

Students should master: extensive knowledge in the field of materials science including materials science and engineering, the structure of materials, the properties of materials, the performance of materials, the manufacturing processes and design, and application and development; intensive professional knowledge, including surfaces and interfaces, materials chemistry, polymer materials, ceramic materials, renewable materials, and sustainable development; experimental and computational methods in the field of engineering and materials science.

(2)Develop professional skills

Students should be equipped with creative problem-solving and transferable skills and recognize the important value of materials science to engineering and other technologies. On the premise of safety, students conduct various experiments practically and are able to design, conduct, analyze and evaluate experiments and the results. Theoretically, students are familiar with the operation of all kinds of equipment used in experiments, tests, and analysis and are capable of searching, collecting and selecting data and presenting scientific and technical report. At last, students should have related abilities to conduct scientific research and develop technology and products.

Reference: Code QX courses are taught by QMUL. Code NX courses are taught by NPU. Code U courses are Chinese Compulsory Courses, Mental Health, Military Theory courses from MoE, as well as some elective courses.


8. Mode of Teaching

Taking the use of Britain’s high education concept to cultivate innovative bachelor talents for reference, multiple education modes are practiced, such as theory teaching, experiment teaching, case study, comprehensive application and open-experimental instruction, in all courses except for Chinese Compulsory and PE courses. Teaching Oneself-Guidance instruction approach to “teach 1, learn 2, test 3” is applied instead of traditional Transfer-Accept to “teach 3, learn 2, test 1”. Highlighted on fostering student’s ability to study on his/her own, problem solving and hands-on practice, JEI programmes intend to motivate inner impetus, discover interest for knowledge and cultivate student’s lifelong learning as well as working ability.


9. Curriculum Logical Diagram

In accordance with the aim “to develop qualified and innovative talents who can study and work transnationally with the knowledge of natural science, materials science and engineering, and social science. Students graduate with comprehensive qualities, high professional competencies, a global horizon, a life-long study ability, and the recognition to international rules”, major courses are divided into several modules, support and linked with each other, emphasizing on principle specialty, meeting the education standard of professional, composite and entrepreneurial talents.
