School of Architecture and Civil Engineering comes from, the Department of
Architectural Engineering which came into existence in 1989
based on two programs, Mine Construction, and Industrial
and Civil Engineering. At present, the school is formed
of Department of Civil Engineering, Architectural Department,
the Experimental Center and the Science and Technology Development
Center. Among them are 6 specialized laboratories: Architectural
Materials, Rock and Soil Dynamics, Soil Dynamics, Architectural
Structure, Explosive Structure, Architectural Physics, and
3 artistic workshops, and the Architectural CAD Studio,
the Multi-medium Studio, the Steel Cord Test Station, the
Architectural Engineering Design Institute, the Explosive
Project Division, Construction Division, Engineering Construction
Supervisor Training center.
The School of Architectural and Civil Engineering offers 3 undergraduate programs: Civil Engineering (3 orientations in Architectural Engineering, Rock and Soil Engineering, and Bridge and Tunnel Engineering), Architecture, and Artistic Design; it grants Ph.D in Rock Soil Engineering and master's degree in Rock Soil Engineering, Structural Engineering, Disaster Prevention and Reduction Engineering. The Rock Soil Engineering is the key program at the provincial level. It grants master's degrees in Rock Soil Engineering and Structure Engineering to the working applicants, and grants engineering master's degrees in Architecture and Civil Engineering to the working applicants.
The School of Architectural and Civil Engineering has 72
teachers and others, of whom are 9 professors, 5 associate
professors, 5 senior engineers. Among them are 8 Ph.D holders,
31 master's degree holders, 7 holders of governmental special
allowance, and 3 of the special century-crossing talents
at the provincial or the ministerial level. In the past
years, the college has undertaken almost 200 projects, of
which some are the projects of the National Natural Science
Foundation, some are the state pilot ones, some are the
ones of the former Ministry of Mine, and some are the commercialized
projects in collaboration with enterprises. Commissioned
by IACMAG,the college succeeded in sponsoring the 1993 International
Application of Computer Methodology to Rock Soil Dynamics
and Engineering; it also sponsored successfully the 10th
and 19th Mining Program Construction of the National Higher
Institutions of Learning respectively in 1989 and in 1999.
After long-term efforts, the college has achieved many influential
research results, some of which are advanced at the national
level or world level, in rock soil dynamics and its mathematical
analysis, soil consolidating theory and technology, the
development of fast hardening cement fluke rod, the support
of mine lane fluke rod, explosive theory and technology,
calculation and analysis of the architectural structure,
mine construction facility and procedure, the anti-shock
underground structure and the disaster prevention and handling,
architectural engineering design and decoration technique,
and the development of building materials.
Emphasis is always placed on the quality education and learning style of the students in this school. The students are required to master book knowledge first and then encouraged to participate in a variety of extra-curricular contests such as the contests of scientific works, mathematics modeling. Thus are produced a batch of outstanding students; a dozen of students obtained Sun Yueqi Scholarship, Shaanxi Provincial Model Student Title; and 4 students won awards in the National Collegiate Challenge Trophy Extra-curricular Scientific Works.
All the school is vigorously devoted to the construction of the Chinese nation through science and education.
