Global Summer/Winter School
S021 Outlook of Future Techniques in Aerospace Engineering

Duration: 2018.7.11-2018.7.26 (2 weeks)


Campus: Minhang  


Course Description


This course aims to introduce aerospace engineering innovation in China to participants and further to the world, including the history, development, current status and the future of Chinese and Shanghai, including the culture of China and Shanghai. The goal is to establish an “international trends, global demand, Chinese strategy, Shanghai strength, and SJTU brand”.

In particular, participants will learn the basics of aerospace engineering through lectures and aerodynamic demonstrations and experiments in a lab setting. Students will explore the field of aerospace engineering, touring SJTU research labs and learning how experimental data is collected in different research fields in aerospace engineering. Various experiments will be conducted on plane models. Students will also design, build, and test models utilizing their newly acquired aeronautical engineering knowledge. They will also interact with our brilliant faculty, graduate researchers, and undergraduate students in the field.




  • University-enterprise cooperative curriculum- field trips to an aero-engine testing platform, engine assembly laboratory, research center of civil aircraft flight Testing at COMAC and AECC;

  • The resources at a world-class University- the world’s top faculty; real-time remote teaching classroom and remote laboratory; SJTU Qian Xuesen library & museum;
  • By the end of this 2-week study experience, students should have basic knowledge and understanding of the rich history, flourishing present and bright future of aerospace science and technology development.




Prof. Bei Lu 



Bei Lu is a professor at the School of aeronautics and astronautics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), China. Before joining SJTU in 2017, she was a professor in the department of mechanical and aerospace engineering at California State University Long Beach, where she has served as a faculty member since 2005. She received her BS and MS degrees in power and mechanical engineering from SJTU in 1996 and 1999, respectively, and a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from North Carolina State University in 2004. Her main research interests include robust control, linear parameter-varying control of n onlinear systems and application of advanced control and optimization techniques to aerospace, mechanical and electromechanical engineering problems. She has published 1 book, Modeling and Analysis of Dynamic Systems, 2nd edition (CRC Press, 2014) and nearly 40 research papers in high-quality engineering and scientific journals such as the AIAA Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics, IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, Automatica, Systems and Control Letters, etc. and international conference proceedings.
