Elaborate Courses

Automotive Structure

1. Automotive Structure is a comprehensive teaching practice, a collection of classroom instruction, dismounting experiment and cognition practice. We adopt modern teaching methods, enlarge class information, and emphasize on updated knowledge.
2. The course plays an important role in the graduation project and the following specialized courses, such as Automobile Theory, Automobile Design etc.
3. The course is necessary for the quality-oriented education. It is practical and innovative to cultivate the students’ ability.
4. It owns a complete set of teaching material edited by the college. Provide the material for visual lessons given by qualified teachers, such as course outline of Automobile Structure, and Automobile Structure Recognition Practice Manual. Provide downloading of teaching materials, display of Laboratory environment and links of relevant resource.

Automobile Design

In the course, the students will learn relevant basic theory, basic knowledge and design procedures of different kinds of automobiles, strengthen ability to analyze and solve problems in research, design, manufacture and testing of vehicle engineering. Applying learnt knowledge lays a foundation for undertaking jobs, like automobile design, fabrication, testing, scientific research and teaching etc after graduation.

The objective of the course is to teach the students to master design requirements of complete vehicle and chassis assembly etc, analyze and select from various schemes, choose design parameters correctly , decide assumed load, process structure and force analysis, strength calculation of the main parts and components, adopt material properly,  learn knowledge of heat treatment, and gain basic ability to design different kinds of automobile.

Internal Combustion Engine Design

Internal Combustion Engine Design, one of the main courses for undergraduates in major of Thermal Energy and Power Engineering, is a required major course in teaching program.
The aim of the course is to learn basic theory and design philosophy of internal combustion engine design, master structure and calculation method of main parts and components, coordinate and select the accessory system in Internal Combustion Engine Dynamics, learn application of modern design methods, such as optimization design, reliability design, CAD in internal combustion engine design. The students will gain the ability to process technical work in internal combustion engine design.

Engineering Thermodynamics

Engineering Thermodynamics refers to the subject that studies the inter-conversion rules among thermal energy and energies in other forms, especially for the mechanical energy. The majority of technical issues came across in modern production fields, and numerous natural phenomena are related with transfer and conversion of thermal heat. Therefore, Engineering Thermodynamics is the basic course for most majors of engineering courses.
In Jilin University, Engineering Thermodynamics is a required basic course, a total of 54 classes, open for undergraduates in majors of Energy and Power Engineering. Fundamental Thermodynamics, 34 classes, is a required basic course for Mechanical Design Manufacture and Automation, Vehicle Engineering. In the course, the students will scientifically recognize the objective laws of energy analysis and conversion, master methods and means to analyze issues in Engineering Thermodynamics, analyze and calculate thermal phenomenon issues correctly in engineering project, and set up a concept of energy saving and rational use of the energy.
