Urban Underground Space Engineering
The major in Urban Underground Space Engineering of Chongqing University is a specially established one for admission, which was approved by the Ministry of Education in 2017. It was built on the basis of Architecture, Civil Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, and other advantageous disciplines of Chongqing University. Since its inception, it has been highly valued by leaders at all levels of the university, with a high starting point for construction and strong support for the allocation of teaching resources.
The history of the Urban Underground Space Engineering of Chongqing University dates back to the 1970s. The former Chongqing Institute of Architecture and Engineering opened the major of Underground Construction Engineering as early as 1972, 1973, and 1975. After the resumption of the college entrance examination, the talent training in the development and utilization of underground space adopted a multi-professional and interval enrollment way, according to the talent demand and planning system model at that time, mainly focusing on Underground Engineering, Exploration Technology and Engineering. In 1977, 1980, 1982-1987, the major of Underground Engineering was established, and since 1989, it has been merged into the major of Geotechnical Engineering. In 2017, the enrollment in the major of Urban Underground Space Engineering was resumed.
The major of Urban Underground Space Engineering aims to cultivate “high-quality, innovative and composite” elite talents in the field of urban underground space engineering. On the basis of cultivating students with solid basic theoretical knowledge and extensive professional knowledge, it reflects the characteristics of underground engineering in the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle, highlights the ability of innovation and practice, and cultivates composite talents with basic knowledge of various types of engineering.
Starting from the class of 2021, the major of Urban Underground Space Engineering has been included in the enrollment of ‘Engineering Energy’ category. The first-year students study in the Undergraduate School. The second-year to fourth-year students will be transferred back to the School of Civil Engineering for training according to the professional training program.
Surveying and Mapping Science and Technology
The discipline of "Surveying and Mapping Science and technology" of Chongqing University was established in 1935. After the adjustment of national colleges and departments in 1952, it was included in the surveying teaching and Research Office of the Department of construction and engineering of Chongqing University of architecture. In the 1970s, it was included in the surveying teaching and Research Office of the basic Department of Chongqing University of architecture. It is mainly responsible for the teaching of basic surveying courses of relevant majors in the Department of architecture of the University. Through years of accumulation, It has created a surveying and mapping discipline team with solid theoretical foundation and excellent practical skills. In 1994, we began to recruit undergraduates majoring in surveying and mapping engineering. After the merger of the former Chongqing University, Chongqing Architecture University and Chongqing higher Architecture College in 2000, the surveying and mapping discipline was incorporated into the Civil Engineering College of the new Chongqing University after the adjustment of the college and department, and the surveying and Mapping Engineering Department was established, which further improved the discipline strength. Subsequently, the Department of Surveying and mapping engineering developed rapidly with the support of the "211 Project" and the "985 Project". In 2001, it was awarded the second level master's discipline of "geodesy and surveying engineering" and the first level master's discipline of "Surveying and Mapping Science and technology" in 2004.
