School of Material Science and Engineering

The School of Material Science and Engineering has 26 full-time teachers, 7 professors and 11 associate professors, 70% of all teachers with doctor’s degree, and 9 teachers having studied abroad. Of the full-time teachers, 3 are Chutian Scholars, 1 is a receiver of a special allowance provided by the provincial government of Hubei, 2 are Young and Middle Aged Experts with Outstanding Contributions of Hubei, 1 is a member of Material Science and Engineering Teaching Guidance Committee of the Ministry of Education, and 1 is a title holder of Hubei New Millennium High-end Talent Project Tier Two.

The school has 3 provincial research centers, namely Hubei Green Light Industry Material Key Laboratory, Hubei Rubber and Plastic Forming and Equipment Engineering Research Center, and Hubei Automobile Light Weight Material Engineering Laboratory. After over 30 years of development, the school has become a teaching and research facility with high polymer material forming and processing as a major feature, and with wide recognition among universities and the processing industry of the whole nation.

The school has two undergraduate majors namely: high polymer material and engineering, and material science and engineering. The major “high polymer material and engineering” was founded in 1978 when only 6 colleges had this major in the whole nation. This major is one of the first group of brand majors of Hubei, and is also a Hubei Strategic New (pillar) Talent Education Plan Major and Hubei Comprehensive Major Reform Pilot major. The major Material Science and Engineering was founded in 2002. In 2009, the university was listed in among the top 50 higher education colleges with best student employment rate, and the major Material Science and Engineering was advertised as a major with best employment rate of the university. In the last three years, the school established a material innovation program each year for customized education.

The school has built the education pattern of combining research, teaching, theories, practice, professional education and quality education. In the last three years, the teachers have undertaken over 90 National Natural Science Foundation of China, provincial, ministry-level research projects with total funds of more than 13 million yuan (8 projects awarded science and technology research result prize, 5 projects rated as international advanced level or domestic leading level). The researchers of the school have published over 130 papers, submitted 85 papers to three major index databases, filed 25 patent applications, undertaken 5 teaching research projects, published 3 textbooks and built 2 excellent courses. The school has maintained close communications and cooperation with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, Loughborough University, Stockholm University, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Sichuan University, Huazhong University of Science and Technology and other famous universities at home and abroad.

The graduates of the school have diverse options for employment. They can do high polymer material and inorganic non-metal material manufacturing, application, technical management and market development in research institutes and enterprises of automobile, electronics and electric, building material, petroleum and chemical industry, packaging, aerospace and aviation and other fields.
