Underwater Acoustic Engineering Talents Thrive Here—— HEU College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering Innovative Undergraduate Training Work Documentary

On July 4th, the title, “Underwater Acoustic Engineering Talents Thrive Here” was highlighted on the front page of the “China Education Daily”. This report centered on the characteristics and achievements of the training talents of HEU’s College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering.


Taking the 100% progression of the 531 graduates of 2018 as a starting point, the full article analyzes the characteristics and advantages of training talents of HEU’s College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering in three parts: The talents in this field can only be cultivated by ourselves, With a positive learning style and a good class attitude, the students will grow up smoothly, and Centered on student development, cultivate the students in all aspects and through the whole process”. The article shares about HEU's advanced educational experience.


The strength of the country is in it's talents, and the talents are out of school. In recent years, the College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering, insisting on the concept of “elite education and talent education”, has cultivated high-end talents based on the characteristics of the college. They have innovated and practiced new methods of educating students as well, cultivating high-quality underwater talents for the maritime powers. The rate of enrollment has remained above 70%, and the employment rate of HEU graduates in the industry is over 80%. The Class of 2018 is no different,  getting 100% progression.  Not only that, but the 2017 freshmen all passed the exams excepting non-objective factors. This is a beautiful transcript of the HEU concept of “Taking student development as the center and cultivating students in all aspects through the whole process”. It also emphasizes HEU becoming a highland and brand of educators formed by the quality and level of talent training under the influence of the university spirit: “Placing the national needs as the first need, national defense as the first mission, and the people’s satisfaction as the first standard”.


Upon graduation, the 2018 class of HEU's College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering is on the HEU “Graduation Honor List”, including 32 students moving on to master's level study. This is definitely seen as an exciting honor among the teachers and students of HEU.


The Class of 2018 is a microcosm of the talent training work of the college. Under the concept of Elite education and Talent education, every college student is like a seed, sprouting and growing in this fertile soil…


The shipbuilding industry, naval equipment, marine development, nuclear energy applications, and training of the Shipbuilding Industry, Marine Equipment, Ocean Exploration and Nuclear Application talents have always been the goal of HEU. As an important part of HEU's characteristic discipline group, the College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering is responsible for the planning and construction of the marine information discipline group.


The College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering Dean YIN Jingwei said that the college originated from the first sonar specialty established in 1953 —— the sonar specialty of the Department of Naval Engineering of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Military Engineering Institute (Harbin Military Engineering). It is currently led by two academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering YANG Shi’e and YANG Desen and is the cradle of cultivating high-level underwater acoustics talents.


According to this introduction, 80% of the graduates of the College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering entered underwater acoustic engineering and related fields. More than 60% of the engineers, managers and technical leaders in the field of hydroacoustic engineering graduated from HEU. In the past five years, the college has trained hundreds of national defense and postgraduate defense students for the Navy.


The basic theory is solid, the practical ability is strong, the quick start, and the stamina is enough. This is the evaluation the employers of  the graduates of HEU's College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering. 

Underwater Acoustic technology is one of the national defense needs. It is very important and very special. The talents in this field cannot come from international exchanges and can only be cultivated by our own country, College Dean YIN said.


The core science and technology of a country is impossible for others to approach and learn. The most cutting-edge technology in science can only rely on our self-reliance and innovative exploration. At the beginning of each school year, Academician YANG , the founder of China's underwater acoustic technology, will educate students when giving a report to the freshmen of the College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering.


The 87-year-old academician YANG is standing at each lesson. His voice is loud and passionate. He is still working hard on scientific research. Sometimes he insists on sea trials. As a backup force for the underwater sound industry, we have no reason to slack off. A graduate of the underwater acoustic engineering specialty said.


With the positive learning style and the good class attitude, the students will grow up smoothly.


After being admitted to the university, away from parental discipline, many college students are confused about the future. How can one help them establish a correct outlook on life and values and help them define their ideals and goals? The college managers and teachers have been thinking about these issues.


With a positive learning style and a good class attitude, the students will grow up smoothly,” was quoted by REN Huijuan, teacher of the class of 2018. She also clearly remembered her first experience as an undergraduate class teacher. There was no experience at that time. Despite the hard work and carelessness, the class performance was always unsatisfactory.


“The HEU’s ‘rigorous, rigid, and strict’ teaching style cannot be lost. To better manage the college students, teachers must learn to be both flexible and strict,” China’s underwater acoustic engineering well-known expert professor HUI Junying reminded class teacher REN.


HEU's College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering rigidly grasps the cultivation of students' study habits and allows students to start self-study from the time of entering the school to develop the habit of conscious learning. The college also meticulously grasps the construction of the classes and uses the weekends to open the class meeting to let students, one by one, report their own gains and problems encountered. Once teachers have found that there are students who fall behind the team, they will immediately carry out special assistance. The students who really serve everyone will be selected as class cadres, give full play to the role of the class committee, and guide other students to be self-managing.


College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering deputy secretary of the party committee WANG Jianan introduces that the college has equipped each new dormitory with an academic navigator. Chosen from the top-ranking senior students, these navigators help guide freshmen to solve problems in their studies and life. The college has also set up a learning guidance center consisting of 40 senior students with excellent grades serving as “learning assistants”. They provide comprehensive guidance services for students, such as: “answering questions, helping studies, guiding examinations and overcoming weaknesses”.


Centered on student development, cultivate the students in all aspects and through the whole process.


“Understanding the underwater acoustic, loving the profession and obsessing over the industry”, the College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering has carried out professional ideals and career development education, starting from the first day students arrive at HEU. The academician’s introduction to the profession is the first lesson for freshmen in college.


In addition, the college will also invite first-line experts to participate in theme classes for freshmen to establish professional ideals and specify the direction of development.


In September 2017, 13 underwater acoustic experts from 10 industry units including the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, the China State Shipbuilding Corporation limited and the Naval Research Institute were appointed as honorary class teachers of the College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering. College Dean YIN says that the double class teacher (honorary class teacher and normal class teacher) can not only help students to lay a solid foundation for their theory, but also open up their professional vision. While promoting industry enterprises and institutions and brother universities to greatly participate in the training of college talents, they can also enhance students' understanding of the application fields, cutting-edge technologies and development directions of underwater acoustics. 


I hope that I can use my 30-year work experience to guide students into the door of underwater acoustic technology and to cultivate their interest. 20170531 Honorary class teacher said.


“The rate of enrollment of HEU's College of Underwater Acoustic Engineering has always been above 70%. All the students of class 2018 have achieved good results and success in the postgraduate recommendation and the postgraduate examination. It is proof of HEU's talent cultivation concept of ‘Centered on student development, cultivate the students in all aspects and through the whole process’. This  explains the ‘Harbin Military Engineering spirit’ placing the national needs as the first need, national defense as the first mission, and the people’s satisfaction as the first standard,” HEU's secretary of the Party Committee GU Huanmin said.
