    School of mechanical engineering (SME)consists of 5 departments in terms of Mechanical Design and its Automationdepartment , Mechanical Manufacture and its Automation department ,Mechatronic Engineering department, Material Forming and Control Engineering department ,Mechanical engineering experimental training center. Moreover, SME established 2 research institutes ,namely research institute of advanced manufacturing technology and equipment , research institute of digital intelligent equipment. SME has also set up administrations such as general affairs office and student work office. SME has established province-level experimental teaching and practice education centers, namely Comprehensive training centers for mechanical engineering, Key laboratory of building energy conservation of Jiangsu province (cooperated by 3 schools , research interests: Construction equipment system operation and intelligent control), key laboratory of precision and efficient processing technology of Suzhou , Jiangsu excellent engineer (mechanical power) education alliance members and other provincial construction platforms.

    SME has now more than 800 undergraduates , 7 graduates and 47 teaching and administrative staff, including 35 full-time teachers and 6 experimental teachers. Among the full-time teachers, there are 5 professors ,13 associate professors and senior engineers, 13lecturers and experimental teachers. 25 of them has a doctor degree, and 12 of them has an overseas study experience of more than 6 months.
