About Us
Dean’s welcome word+

The Department of Mechanical Engineering (DME) was founded in 1932 on the principle of “Cultivating specialized mechanical engineering talents to meet the demand of domestic development.” That makes the DME one of the earliest departments in the field of engineering at Tsinghua University. Following structural changes to the DME in 1952 and 1960, the current DME was established in 2012 by merging the faculty members of the former DME and the Department of Precision Instrumentation and Mechanics.

Based on the efforts of teachers and students from generation to generation, DME has formed a complete discipline system covering mechanical design, manufacturing technology, and forming technology. DME has a platform for basic research and talent training, such as the State Key Laboratory of Tribology and Demonstration Center for National Engineering Discipline Teaching, a platform for international cooperation, such as the IDM Joint Lab and Overseas Expertise Introduction Center for Discipline Innovation, and a platform for the transformation of technological achievements, the Tianjin Research Institute for Advanced Equipment of Tsinghua College.

The research conducted at DME, which crosses international boundaries in each research field and fulfils important national requirements, covers a wide range of fields, including the fundamentals of mechanical interfaces, robots and intelligent manufacturing, extreme non-equilibrium processing equipment and technologies, bioproduction and medical devices, and IC equipment and precision control, which have great influence at home and abroad. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tsinghua University was recently rated A+ in a nationwide ranking and is ranked 14th in the QS World University Rankings 2020.

Based on the "Trinity" talent cultivation principle of Tsinghua University, DME persistently cultivates the principle of "Stable Foundation, Wide Coverage, Emphasis on Practice and High Quality" to enable outstanding innovative talents to master future developments in mechanical engineering.

The mechanical manufacturing industry is the foundation of the national economy, and at this critical stage of transformation to a more advanced manufacturing industry, we are facing historic challenges and opportunities. DME sincerely welcomes excellent students and outstanding scholars from all over the world to join us in striving for a first-class mechanical engineering discipline that utilizes innovative thinking and advanced technology.
