College of Materials Science and Engineering
College of Materials Science and Engineering, established from the department of Novel Materials& Processing Engineering (provincial key discipline) of the College of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, has been developed to be an important base of professional training, scientific research and technical development for both of industrial and academic communities.
The college includes a provincial key discipline of Materials Science and Engineering, a provincial key laboratory of Plastic Modified and Processing Technology Research, a key laboratory of China light industry association for Green plastic auxiliary, a China - Russia Joint Research Center for Diamond Films and Functional Devices, and a Provincial Platform of Plastic Technology Innovation and has managed Zhejiang Corrosion and Protection Academy and the Modified Plastics Research Breeding Base of China Plastics Processing Industry Association. The college has been awarded as a unit which has made outstanding contribution to Modified Plastics Industry of China and an allied unit of Zhejiang Polymer Materials Industrial Technology.
To date, the college has over 80 faculties, including 36 percent professors, 43 percent associate professors, and 87 percent of them hold a doctor's degree. Among the teachers, many of them are selected into national and provincial major talent projects, e.g. 1 teacher in “National Thousand Talents Plan" Distinguished experts, 1 teacher in " National Millions of Talents Project", 1 teacher the National Science Fund for Excellent Young Scholars, 1 teacher in “New Century Talents” by Ministry of Education, 5 teachers in “Provincial Thousand Talents Plan" Distinguished experts, 6 teachers in “Qian Jiang” Distinguished experts and 5 teachers in the first section of Zhejiang “151” Talents Project. At present, the college have the qualification to offer a doctoral program of Chemical Engineering of Materials, three first-class discipline master program of Materials Science and Engineering, three master programs of the second-class discipline, i.e. Materials Science, Materials Physics and Chemistry and Materials Processing Engineering, an Engineering master's program of, Materials Engineering, and two undergraduate programs, i.e., Materials Science and Engineering, Polymer Materials and Engineering. Currently, around 900 students are studying in our college, among whom there are over 500 undergraduates, over 400 graduates and over 40 doctoral graduates. Till now，over 4500 students have been graduated.
Utilizing the advantages of disciplines and talents, the college has formed a series of distinctive characteristics in key research direction in Polymer Materials and Engineering, Functional Materials, New Energy Materials and Technology, Metal Materials and Surface Engineering, Material Processing and Control Engineering etc., which are well represented by more than 20 research awards including a 2nd prize of National Awards for Technological Invention, and 15 monographs and teaching materials in these areas. Each year, the college undertakes over 100 projects, including the prophase of “Project 973”, “Project 863”, International Technological Cooperative Project, projects sponsored by National Natural Science Fund, Provincial projects and the Ministry projects, as well as projects from industrial community Based on these projects, more than 30 million RMB funding is funded, 30 national invention patents are granted, and 150 academic articles are published, of which over 50 have been extracted by the top index agencies. In the case of facilities, we have standard lab of more than 4 thousand square meters and professional instruments and equipments valued more 60 million RMB. From now on, College of Materials Science and Engineering will uphold the college motto, which means that the one who is beneficial to society must have perfect real skills and knowledge and the one who is a great talent must be supreme good in virtue. The college will dedicate personal training, scientific research, social service, and knowledge spreading, etc., to pursue the educational philosophy of “being perfect real and being supreme good” and the educational aim of “being a great talent”. Our college will become a high-level research college with distinctive characteristics through pragmatic refinement, exploration and innovation of all members.
