Faculty of Civil Engineering & Mechanics in Jiangsu University consists of the department of civil engineering and the department of mechanics & engineering Science. It offers bachelor degree programs in civil engineering, engineering management and engineering mechanics. The mechanics discipline (key build discipline of Jiangsu Province) was qualified as the first-level discipline to confer master¡¯s degree of mechanics. The civil engineering discipline was authorized to confer master programs in structural engineering, disaster prevention & reduction and protective engineering, as well as construction and civil engineering. Graduates can also pursue their Ph.D. degree in the discipline of solid mechanics, traffic and transportation engineering, management science and engineering. The faculty also welcomes overseas students (both undergraduates and graduates) for further study in all the above majors. Currently, there are nearly 900 students studying in our faculty, which include more than 150 graduate students and about 150 overseas students.
The faculty owns several important laboratories and institutes, which include one ministry-level key lab -- Mechanical Structure Damage Detection & Assessment Laboratory, a Research Center of Jiangsu Province for Mechanical and Engineering Structural Damage Diagnosis and Management of Engineering Technology, an Experimental Mechanics Demonstration Center of Jiangsu Province, an Experimental Civil Engineering Cultivate Demonstration Center of Jiangsu Province, a Testing Technology Institute of Civil Engineering which offers technique services for society, Institute of Mechanics Engineering and Institute of Civil Engineering.
It has nearly 82 teaching and administrative staff members, among whom there are 8 Ph.D. supervisors, 37 professors and associate professors, 55 people have Ph.D. degrees, 22 people have overseas study experiences. Moreover, the faculty is supplemented by more than 10 domestic and overseas academicians and famous experts who are hired as part-time professors. Some professors of the faculty are renowned in academia and society domestically and even internationally.
The faculty has paid more attention to cultivating internationalized talents and has built up long-term cooperation with many well-known foreign universities, including University of California, Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Wisconsin-Madison, North Carolina State University, University of South Carolina, Indianan University-Purdue University Fort Wayne in U.S.A, University of Liverpool, University of Portsmouth, University of Dundee, University of Birmingham£¬Swansea University, Lancaster University, University of Bristol in UK, University of Waterloo in Canada, University of Sydney, University of Queensland in Australia, Bergen University in Norway, University of Applied Science Konstanz in Germany, Kumasi Polytechnic in Ghana and so on. It has established international students exchange programs for undergraduate students with some of the abovementioned universities.

In recent 5 years, the faculty has undertaken 2 National High-tech R&D Program (863 Program) supported by National Ministry of Science and Technology, 1 national defense important pre-research project, 1 international£¨regional£©cooperation and exchanges project which is among the key projects supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), 41 other projects supported by NSFC. It also has undertaken more than 40 projects funded by ministries and provinces and 600 items research projects come from society each year. The faculty has obtained many important research achievements among which 2 were provincial or ministry-level advanced science and technology awards, 25 invention patents were issued. Meanwhile, the faculty had published more than 400 papers on the famous domestic and international journals, over 160 papers are indexed in SCI, EI and ISTP. For a long time, the scientific research achievements of our faculty have produced a considerable impact on the progress of national science and technology and the local economic development.
