Harbin Engineering University (HEU) was founded in 1953 in Harbin, Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province. Its original name was PLA Military Engineering Institute— China’s first, high-ranking institution of military technology.
HEU is well-known not only for the first experimental submarine, first hydrofoil craft, first shipboard computer, first swath bathymetry system, and dozens of other major scientific research breakthroughs, but also for being the best in the world with several diverse achievements. Such achievements include duplex submersible vehicles, hovercrafts, and velocity gradient techniques.
The university maintains strong technical knowledge in the shipping, marine, and nuclear fields. Its underwater robots, anti-rolling shipping technology, integrated navigation, acoustic positioning, and nuclear power simulation have occupied advanced domestic and international positions, leading HEU to become one of the driving forces in the basic and applied research of China's nautical science and technology. It is renowned for providing key units of the navy's advanced technical equipment and being a reliable resource for developers of high-tech marine equipment in China.
HEU has formed a well-structured curriculum that is characterized by the main subjects as well as distinctive, related disciplines. There are 12 first-degree doctoral stations, 27 first-degree master stations, 56 undergraduate majors, and 13 post-doctoral mobile stations (research stations).
