China’s high-speed rail is known as “the fifth great invention in China”. From the introduction of technology to leading the world, in just 10 years, the high-speed rail has not only won praises from the Chinese people but also won the attention of the world. At present, “China Speed” has played an important role in the world market. So, what are the top universities in the world, and which universities have contributed to China’s high-speed rail?
1. Beijing Jiaotong University
Beijing Jiaotong University located in Beijing, the capital of China. Beijing Jiaotong University is a national key university directly under the Ministry of Education, which is jointly established by the Ministry of Education, China Railway Corporation, and the Beijing government. Beijing Jiaotong University is the university of 211&985 project, not only the “Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program” project to build colleges and universities, but also the first batch of doctoral and master’s degree-granting universities with graduate schools,” China-Russia Jiaotong University Alliance” member universities.
Beijing Jiaotong University has two key research projects on key technologies and equipment development for China’s high-speed rail. In the process of high-speed railway construction, it covers the key technologies and equipment of China’s high-speed trains in all technical fields including railway systems including high-speed train common basic technology, vehicle body technology, traction drive, and brake, network control, traction power supply technology, and transportation organization scheme. Developed in a major project. Beijing Jiaotong University also actively serves the implementation of the national high-speed rail “going out” strategy and cooperates with the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the railway headquarters to carry out training for high-speed rail reserve talents in Thailand, India, Mongolia, and other countries. Currently, it is cooperating with relevant departments to assist India and Mongolia. And the construction of the railway colleges of relevant universities in some African countries.
Tongji University is a national key university directly under the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China and jointly established by the Ministry of Education and Shanghai. It is a key university for the national “211 Project” and “985 Project”. The goal of Tongji University is to create a research-oriented, international, and comprehensive world-class university.
Zhejiang University is located in Hangzhou, the paradise on earth. The predecessor was the Qiushi Academy, which was founded in 1897. It is one of the earliest modern institutions of higher learning founded by the Chinese themselves. In 1928, it was renamed National Zhejiang University. During the Republic of China, Zhejiang University, led by the old principal of Zhu Kezhen, emerged as one of the highest schools in the Republic of China. It was hailed by the British scholar Joseph Needham as “Oriental Cambridge” and ushered in the most glorious period in the 100-year history of Zhejiang University.
In the process of participating in the construction of high-speed rail, the high-speed railway research center jointly established by Zhejiang University and the Ministry of Railways Transportation Bureau was established recently and will conduct forward-looking research in the fields of speed, traction technology, comfort, energy conservation and environmental protection of high-speed railway.
4.Central South University
Central South University, located in Changsha City, Hunan Province, is under the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. It is jointly constructed by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China, and the Hunan Provincial People’s Government. It is a comprehensive study featuring medical science and engineering. University.
On February 26, 2008, the launching ceremony of the National Engineering Laboratory for High-speed Railway Construction Technology was held at Central South University. The laboratory is one of the 10 national engineering laboratories that have been established in China. Based on the development of the railway industry, the laboratory is based on applied basic theory and experimental research, focusing on solving key technologies for high-speed railway construction. It mainly studies vehicle-line-bridge vibration simulation, special geotechnical roadbed static and dynamic characteristics, and tunnel structure. Experimental systems such as aerodynamic effects, railway engineering structural durability, advanced equipment core technology, and digital construction technology, complete sets of high-speed railway ballastless track system technology, special rock ground treatment, and subgrade settlement control technology, complex bridge construction technology and equipment, Tunnel aerodynamic effects and disaster prevention and mitigation, high-performance engineering materials and product preparation technology research and product development.
5.Southwest Jiaotong University
Southwest Jiaotong University is a national key university directly under the Ministry of Education. It is jointly established by the Ministry of Education, China Railway Corporation (formerly the Ministry of Railways), Sichuan Province, and Chengdu City. It is the first batch of “Double-Class”, “211 Project” and “985 Project Advantage Discipline Innovation”. The platform, the “111 plan”, the “2011 plan”, the “excellence plan” focus on the construction of a research university with a graduate school, and it is a major member of the “China-France 4+4″ “CEIBS elite university alliance” and is “national construction”. The high-level university public postgraduate program and the national “assisted Tibet program” train institutions. Founded in 1896, the school was formerly known as the Shanhaiguan Beiyang Railway Official School. It is the first engineering institution in China, the birthplace of China’s civil engineering, transportation engineering, mining, and metallurgical engineering. One of the earliest sources of Jiaotong University, with Tangshan The names of Jiaotong University and Tangyuan are well-known both at home and abroad.
In addition to the above-mentioned universities, universities such as Tsinghua University and University of Science and Technology Beijing have provided talent and technology support for China’s high-speed rail construction.
