Department of Aircraft Design Engineering

The Department of Aircraft Design Engineering was established in October 1952, formerly known as aircraft design faculty working office of the Aircraft Department of HuaDong Aviation College. After merge of the university in October 1957, the department became the aircraft design faculty working office of the Aircraft Department of Northwestern Polytechnical University.

At present, the department has 33 faculty members, including 8 professors, 12 associate professors. The main research fields of the department is aircraft design, which is the earliest aeronautical field established for country's aviation industry. After 50 years of development, the department continues to meet the needs of the aerospace industry with new concepts, advanced design and its excellent graduates.
