State Key Laboratory of Hydraulics and
Mountain River Engineering (SKLH), Sichuan University

P. R. China


Authorized by National Planning Board (NPB) in May 1988, the State Key Laboratory of Hydraulics and Mountain River Engineering became the first approved State Key Laboratory in hydraulic engineering field.

Since 1952, the discipline of Hydraulics and River Dynamics has been selected as the key construction disciplines in Sichuan University, and then it was selected for the first batch of doctoral program in China in 1981 before it was approved firstly as the state key disciplines of hydraulics in China in 1988. Furthermore, it is approved as the first batch of Chang Jiang Scholars Program in 1998. Then, in 2000 hydraulic engineering discipline becomes the first-level discipline awarding doctoral degree. Moreover, in 2005, basing on the laboratory, the construction of the 1985 Project" Technology Innovation Class I platform was approved by the Ministry of Education. Up to now, the Laboratory has three state key disciplines (Hydraulics and River Dynamics, Geotechnical Engineering and Solid Mechanics), three first-level disciplines awarding doctoral degree (Hydraulic Engineering, Mechanics, Environmental Science and Engineering) and three doctoral programs (Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering and Ecology).
