On October 10, 1935, Liu Xianzhou, Wang Jixu, Yang Yi, Li Jixiang, Zhuang Qianding, Gu Yuquan and Wang Shizhuo jointly sent a letter advocating the establishment of the China Mechanical Engineering Society and soliciting sponsors. On May 21, 1936, the inaugural meeting was held in Hangzhou. Huang Boqiao was elected president and Zhuang Qianding was elected vice president through the meeting. Before the founding of New China, Huang Boqiao, Chen Shi Ying, Cheng Xiaogang, Yang Yi and Wei Yifu served as presidents successively. Activities stopped after the Anti-Japanese War began in 1937. After the founding of New China, Liu Xianzhou, Shi Zhiren, Liu Ding, Shen Hong, Zhuang Qianding, Meng Shaonong, Mao Yixin and others initiated the reconstruction of the society. The First National Congress was held in Beijing from September 15 to 17, 1951. Shi Zhiren was elected chairman, Liu Xianzhou vice-chairman and Meng Shaonong secretary-general. In January 1952, it was approved and registered by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Central People's Government. From 1966 to 1977, the Society ceased its activities. In September 1978, the Society resumed its activities. At the beginning of the reconstruction of the society, it was a former member of the National Federation of Science and Technology. The society is located in Beijing. Its previous directors are Shi Zhiren, Liu Ding, Wang Daohan, Shen Hong, Tao Hengxian, Lu Yansun, He Guangyuan, Lu Yongxiang, Zhou Ji and Li Peigen. Currently, it is the 11th Council.
