Internal Combustion Engine



Institute of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) in Xian Jiaotong University was originated from the Institute of ICEof Jiaotong University, which was built in 1953. In 1956, the majority of the institute, including faculties and facilities, was   moved   from   Shanghai   to   Xian,   following   the Macro-Control Policies of the Ministry of Education of the State Council of China. In 1981 and 1986, the Institute was respectively authorized by the Ministry of Education to offer Masters Degree and Doctors Degree level courses. In 2000, the Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles Engineering Research Center was built. In 2002, the Institute obtained the Certification of the State Key Disciplines in the field of Power Machinery Engineering (only 6 Universities overall Chinaown this certificate).

At present, the Institute has a faculty of 6 professors, 8 associate professors, 5 assistant professors and one technicians. The research work covers both practical engines and fundamental combustion investigations. The institute holds tight collaborations with a variety of world top universities and research institutions.
