The School of Petroleum & Chemical Engineering was founded in May 2013. Currently, it has five undergraduate programs including Petrochemical Engineering, Natural Gas Engineering, Applied Chemistry (for engineering degree), Process Control and Accoutrement, Resources Cycling Science & Engineering, and Chemical & Bio-Engineering. The first four programs offer degrees at Bachelor, Master and Doctorate levels.
The School’s research focuses on Membrane & Membrane Separation, Materials & Devices for Clean & Renewable Energy Utilization, Oil-related Chemistry & Materials (Additives, Lubricating Oils, Polymers for oil recovery, etc.) and Resource Cycling Science & Engineering (Biomass, CO2 capture and conversion, Waste Utilization, etc.). The research funds are from both industry and government. Within the first one and a half years since its foundation, the School has been granted 16 projects by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
The School has 41 faculty members, half of whom have more than 1 year of overseas experience, most with a foreign Doctoral degree. The faculty includes 1 Cheung Kong Scholar, 1 awardee of National Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars and 2 Finalists of the Program for New Century Excellent Talents, 9 professors, and 10 associate professors. Currently, the School has more than 900 Undergraduate students, 150 Master students and 20 Ph.D. students (including 5 from overseas).
Currently, the School of Petroleum and Chemical Engineering has 6 majors: 1. Process Accoutrement and Control Engineering (Petrochemical Process and Accoutrement direction) 2.Applied Chemistry (Engineering direction) 3. Chemical Engineering and Technology (Petrochemical Technology direction) 4. Chemical Engineering and Technology (Gas Chemical Direction) 5. Resource Recycling Science and Engineering 6. Chemical engineering and industrial engineering.
The School’s mission is to foster first-rate skill and perform noteworthy research, while simultaneously providing excellent support to national and local development. It also attaches great importance to international cooperation and strives to establish a distinctive platform for international exchange. The School has collaboration projects (student exchange and scientific research) with the University of Manchester, Hongkong University of Science and Technology, and Tokyo University of Technology .
The School warmly welcomes interested candidates into the School of Petroleum & Chemical engineering!
