On behalf of the faculty members and students of the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to visit the website of the School!

The School is committed to excellence in science & engineering education and research through creativity, hard work and by reaching out to a wider chemical, energy and pharmaceutical communities.

With a team of 220 faculty and staff actively engaged in teaching and research in various branches of chemistry and chemical engineering, the School has established extensive academic cooperation with universities and industries in China and overseas. We are striving to develop new research areas through the recruitment of new faculty members with diverse backgrounds and expertises. These will add to the existing research strengths and collaborations within the School as well as other schools/departments in the University.

Along with these efforts, we aim to maintain our award-winning excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We provide our 2,105 students with well-designed innovative and curriculum and modern learning facilities. Our programs prepare students for careers and for further studies, and offer exploration in a field of study for personal and intellectual reasons. Many of our student research projects won awards from a number of professional societies.

The year 2008 marked a major milestone in the School’s history with the integration of the previous School of Chemistry Science and School of Chemical and Energy Engineering, into the new School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. The new school is of characteristic with the spirited and integrated intellectual atmosphere attracting a group of distinguished scholars to join an already prestigious assembly of faculty.

We hope that while browsing the website, you will find interesting information on our research and education. We look forward to welcoming you to our School and share with us your comments and feedback.
