|Profile of Engineering Workshop|
Derived from the engineering training center and the practical workshop of school-run factory,Engineering Workshop of Xi’an Jiaotong University was founded in October 2007as a directly affiliated institution of the university. . Now the Engineering Workshop has three regions A, B, and C with a total area of approximately 13000m2and consists of three practice platforms: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Practice Platform, Mechanical Engineering Practice Platform and Humanistic Environment Practice Platform. The Workshop possesses 1,500 sets of instrument and equipment of all kinds, including general machine tools, CNC machine tools, machining centers, EDM wire cutting, CNC sheet metal machine tools, welding machines, aluminum melting furnaces, high-precision rapid prototyping machines, 3D printers; oscilloscopes, function signal generators, DC power supplies, digital bridges, transistor tracers, scanners, voltage testers, parameters measuring instrument, SCM simulation equipment, LPKF high-speed PCB engraving machines, Smt equipment, Festo modular production lines, chemistry plate production lines; sewing equipment, thermal transfer printers, wide-format color printers and so on. Currently the workshop has 46 staff members, including 5 teachers, 13 engineers and technicians, 26 technical workers and 2 ordinary staffs.
In the Engineering Workshop, students can practice in three formats: teaching practice, project practice and autonomous practice. On the basis of traditional metal processing practice and electronic practice, the workshop brings in measurement and control practice and adds the interest-arousing program of creative processing to initiate their preliminary understanding of equipment performance and processing craft. Every year the engineering workshop provides over 3000 practice posts of metal processing teaching and practice, over 1800 posts of electronic practice and more than 1150 posts of measurement and control practice.
