He Jishan, member of Chinese Academy of Engineering

He Jishan, Han Nationality, was born in September 1934 in Liuyang, Hunan Province. professor and PhD supervisor of Central South University. In 1994 he was elected as the first batch of academician by Chinese Academy of Engineering. Professor He Jishan engaged in scientific research for 60 years. He was president of Central South University of Technology and director of Department of Energy and Mines at Chinese Academy of Engineering. Now he is the bureau members of China Academy of Engineering, member of the standing committee of Engineering Management Department at China Academy of Engineering, Honorary Chairman of Science and Technology Association, Hunan Fellow Friendship Association of Hunan Province, adviser of Hunan Calligraphy Association.

Professor He Jishan has dedicated to research on geophysical theory, method and observation instrument system, the creation and development of a "dual frequency induced polarization method", "pseudo random signal power Law", "Wide electromagnetic method" and the "flow field fitting method "as the core of the geoelectric field theory and instruments, those are widely used at home and abroad. Professor He won the 1st Prize of National Science Award, two National Invention Awards, two National Science and Technology Progress Award and 18 Provincial Awards. In1986 he was awarded as the outstanding Contributed Experts, and named National Model Workers on Non-ferrous Metals in 1995. In 2000 he was named as the National Advanced Educators, and the National Advanced Worker in 2005. His research achievements in electrical frequency domain has established a school that excel in the world level. Famous American geophysicist HF Morrison once wrote: "He Jishan’s many explorations in geophysics received worldwide recognition particularly in induced polarization and controlled source audio MT.”

Professor He Jishan has devoted much attention to the management of long-term development of science and engineering disciplines, especially on the theory and practice of project management during the past 20 years. He has made a great deal of researches and published monographs and a number of influential articles on it. He actively involved in promoting the establishment of project management faculty and organized forums and promote the program design in engineering management, which played a key role in the recruitment, construction and development of master's degree. Now he is engaged on theory system research of project management.

Professor He advocates the integration of science, technology, engineering and art. His loved calligraphy and couplets since childhood. After the reform and opening up, he was committee of the University Student Cultural and Quality Education Commission of Ministry of Education, advisor of Hunan Calligraphers Association, who actively promoted calligraphy and humanistic teaching for university student in Science and Engineering. Among domestic and foreign exchanges, he often seek pals and fellows from literary circle. For a long time, he maintained deep friendship with scholars from literature, painting and couplets. With an open mind to learn others as well as his own experiences, he  exceled the skills in Zhuan, Li, Kai, Xing and Curve style, particularly developed his own characteristics in Embedded Couplets calligraphy and Chinese & English calligraphy.

In1985 Professor He Jishan created the first PhD program in ground field studies of geophysics. Later in 2002, he set up the Biomedical Engineering program at Central South University. He supervised students from 3 disciplines: geophysics, management science and engineering, biomedical engineering three, which is over 100 students that are postdoctoral fellows and students pursing master and doctoral degree. During his service as president of Central South University of Technology, he advocated humane spirit, optimized the educational environment and promoted integration of science, engineering, and culture, which led the university to be the first bath entering national 211 Project.
