School of Astronautics
School of Astronautics was founded in 1958, based on Department of Aerospace Engineering and is one of the earliest to focus on the astronautical technology in China.
Currently, school of astronautics is composed of 5 departments, 1 research institution, 2 National Key Laboratory, 2 Provincial Key Laboratory and Engineering Research Center .
Following the spirit of NPU, School of Astronautics has made remarkable achievement in training students and had high social reputation. It has cultivated more than 6000 senior talents specialized in aeronautics and astronautics, 2 of which are China's Top Ten Outstanding Youth.
Aiming at applying basic research into practice and meeting needs of national strategy, School of Astronautics undertook many research tasks and a number of important research results have been achieved, including development of more than 20 types of space vehicles, carrier rocket and satellites. The school was cited by Manned Space Engineering Office for it's remarkable contributions to China’s first manned flight test. School of Astronautics has become an influential institute in training excellent students and doing scientific research.
