The School of Materials Science and Engineering consists of the departments of Metal Materials, Inorganic Non-metallic Materials, Material Physical and Chemistry, and Material Processing Engineering. Our facilities include the Key Laboratory of Green Fabrication and Surface Technology of Advanced Metal Materials, Ministry of Education, Anhui Key Laboratory of "Metal Materials and Processing" and Anhui Experimental Teaching Center for Material Science and Engineering. At present, we have 84 full-time academic staff, including 26 Professors, 33 Associate Professors, 11 doctoral supervisors and 59 master supervisors. Over the past 40 years, we have been striving to strengthen the undergraduate curriculum through continuous improvement of the caliber of our key academic disciplines. By upgrading the traditional basic material industry and fulfilling the complex needs of the new material industry, the school is contributing to scientific research and achievement on a national level.
The school has doctorate discipline in Materials Science and Engineering, including three sub-doctorate disciplines in Materials Science, Material Processing Engineering, and Material Physical Chemistry, and master's degree discipline in Materials Science and Engineering. Our materials science and engineering discipline has been ranked in the top 1% of ESI global ranking since 2015. In 2017, it was selected as one of the top seven "world-class disciplines" project construction units in Anhui province, and one of the top ten "peak disciplines" in Anhui province in 2019.
Undergraduate program construction
The school is directing the cooperation committee of materials undergraduate program in Anhui province. At present, it enrolls students according to four majors, namely Material Science and Engineering, Metal Material Engineering, Inorganic Non-Metallic Material Engineering, and Welding Technology and Engineering. In the past five years, the school has led a number of national research and educational projects and has won 5 provincial teaching achievement awards (including 2 first prizes).
