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.

The major research areas of the solid mechanics discipline include:1. Mechanics of advanced materials and structures: Mico/nanomechanics, mechanics and physics of complex materials, mechanics of smart materials and structure, Mechanical problems in new energy technologies.2. Elasticity and plasticity: Elastic and plastic properties of materials and structures under impact and extreme conditions, dynamics and wave theory of heterogeneous media under coupled electro-thermo-magneto-mechanical loads.3. Computational solid mechanics: Computations of waves, numerical methods in impact dynamics, multi-scale computations.4. Experimental mechanics: New methods in impact experiments, dynamic fracture, dynamic analyses of large-scale engineering structures, new functional materials and devices, nondestructive tests.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
