Professor ChenXuejun, academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, born on March 5, 1919in Chuzhong County, Anhui Province, received his Bachelor’s degree at National Central University (in Chongqing City),and the Master’s Degree of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. In the year 1980, he was elected one of the academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In 1996,he was elected Fellow of The Third WorldAcademy of Sciences. In the same year, he was successively granted the ScienceProgress Award sponsored by the Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation, Outstanding Professorof Xi’an Jiaotong University, as well as the Top 10 Golden Marriage owner ofChina.
Chen Xuejun is the professor of Xi’an Jiaotong University, Doctoral Supervisor, Honorary Director of State Key Laboratory of Multiphase Flow in PowerEngineering, Director of Institute of Engineering Thermophysics, Chinese Academyof Sciences, Honorary Director of Xi’an JiaotongUniversity Academic Board, Honorary Professor of Tongji University, Honorary Professorof ChinaUniversity of Petroleum in East China, Honorary President of ChineseSociety of Engineering Thermophysics. He once was the Vice President of Xi’an Jiaotong University, Director of State Key Laboratory of Multiphase Flow in PowerEngineering, two terms NPC vice-director of Shaanxi Province, StandingCommittee member of the CPPCC, andVice-Chairmanof theCentralCommittee oftheJiusanSociety, andnow he is the Honorary Vice-Chairmanof it.
He has engaged himself in teaching andscientific research for more than 60 years, and made a great contribution tothe development of China’s higher education.
