University rank #30 (QS) ,
The Solid Mechanics discipline evolved with the establishment of the mechanics programme of Peking University, which was one of the first of its kind in China

About

The discipline, featured with fundamental research and applications of solid mechanics and related areas, maintains its high status as a base for advanced research and education in solid mechanics. In education, we emphasize the command of the most essential knowledge and a solid foundation of mechanics and the building of comprehensive capacity in analyses, computations and experiments; in research, we pay great attention and endeavor to solve fundamental and original problems in the development and applications of mechanics and engineering science. The scientific achievements of the faculty are well recognized and play an important role in the industry.
