Postgraduate Programmes



This discipline originated from the programmes of hydropower station, dynamic set of water energy, thermal power plant and other programmes set up at the beginning of the establishment of Jiangxi Institute of Water Conservancy and Electric Power in 1958. Now it has developed into an application-oriented discipline with hydraulic machinery as its main feature, and focusing on the combination of industry and university, and the transformation of achievements.

The discipline consists of three main research orientations, which are Precision Drive and Sensing, Robotics and Its Applications, and Fluid Machinery and Measurement and Control.
