Jiangxi Provincial Key Laboratory of Precision Drives and Controls

Jiangxi Provincial Key Laboratory of Precision Drives and Controls


The Key Laboratory of Precision Driving and Control of Jiangxi Province was approved to be built in October 2014, subordinated to School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering of NIT. The Lab adheres to the construction concept of “integration of school and lab”, and keeps close cooperation with the School in terms of discipline construction, scientific research and talent cultivation.

The Lab has over 20 research fellows now, including 7 professors, 15 doctors, 7 provincial-level talents, and has hired Professor Chen Dingfang from Wuhan University of Technology and Professor Marcelo J. Dapino from Ohio State University as part-time researcher. It owns 2000m2 research building, and scientific research equipment of over 10 million yuan.

The Lab, in the light of the demand of strategic emerging industries like water conservancy and hydropower, wind power, aviation manufacture and bioengineering in Jiangxi on precision driving technology, according to the concept that “materials are foundation, devices are key and system is orientation”, based on abundant rare earth resources in Jiangxi, is engaged in the research and development of precision mechanical driver and actuator based on functional materials. In recent three years, the Lab has undertaken 12 national natural science foundations (presiding over 9 ones and participating in 3 ones), 27 scientific research projects at provincial and ministerial level, published over 90 various academic papers (including over 40 SCI/EI retrieval papers), 11 authorized national patents for inventions, won 2 first prizes for scientific and technological achievement of higher institutions in Jiangxi and 1 second prize of JMC technology.
