Dean’s Welcome Message
Blessed by the hills of Luojia and nurtured by the water of the East Lake, Wuhan University boasts 120 years of excellence.
The School of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering of Wuhan University has a development history of nearly 90 years, dating back to the Water Resources Engineering Discipline at Wuhan University in 1928. Today, with a particularly strong academic team of 165 teaching staff and research scientists, including 74 professors and 49 doctoral supervisors, the school has cultivated over 40,000 students and made tremendous achievements.
As for nearly 90-year endeavor, I am proud to say, my colleagues and I, together with generations of more scholars and students, have devoted our talent and efforts to contribute to build a renowned ground for higher-education, scientific research and engineering application. And currently, the school is in charge of 2 national-level research centers, 4 provincial and ministerial-level centers and 4 university-level centers, i.e. State Key Laboratory of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering Science, Ministry of Education Key Laboratory of Rock Mechanics in Hydraulic Structural Engineering, etc.
At SWRHE, annually, four departments, Department of Agricultural Water Resources Engineering, Department of Hydropower Engineering, Department of Harbor, Waterway and Coastal Engineering and Department of Hydrology and Water Resources, through various systematic and integrated teaching programs, confer 4 Bachelor’s degrees, 9 Master’s degrees and 7 doctoral degrees for worldwide students to study here and experience the wide range of resources offered by such a great school and university. It is surely true that with a degree from SWRHE, our graduates are provided with a higher and flatter platform to seek and establish their own careers.
Here at SWRHE, our motto is “Solidarity, Collaboration, Persistency.” Every SWRHE person makes the promise to understand it, adhere to it and carry it forward over a lifetime. With the spirit, we not only cultivate the best talents in the field domestically and internationally, but also expect for good and strong constructers for China and the whole world.
Welcome, aspiring youths, you shall meet your vision!
