YUMEC gives first priority to academic research and course construction and strives to improve efficiency and quality. In recent years, it has undertaken over 40 research projects, including a state “High-tech 863 Project” and various other national projects, thereby winning various awards from relative national and provincial authorities. The faculty members each year have over 80 research articles published in national key academic journals. Some of these articles are included in SCI and El.

YUMEC takes as one of its missions to contribute to local economic development. It strives to relate its teaching and research programs to social and economic needs. For this purpose, it has set up various research organizations, including Mechatronic Research Institute, Metallic Material Research Center, Bosch Yangzhou Diesel Training Center, and Duowei New Technology Company.

YUMEC holds that international exchange and cooperation and the interaction of different cultures will promote the college’s development and elevate its academic level. It has established ties with institutions of higher education in 5 countries. Over a dozen foreign scholars have taught, delivered lectures, or participated in cooperative academic research programs here over the past few years. A considerable number of faculty members have been abroad for academic visits, advanced studies, research cooperation or international academic conferences. Besides, exchanges at the faculty and researchers level and at the student level are also developing steadily. The number of international students in the college is on the rise.
