Department of Modern Macromolecular Engineering

  Welcome to Modern Macromolecular Engineering


1Brief Introduction:

Department of Modern Macromolecular Engineering was established in Dec., 2006.

This department is a research-based education unit. Great efforts have been devoted to the tight coupling and mutual promotion between research and education, and strong emphases have been placed on theoretical study and experimental skill training. There are around 160 graduate students for master degree and around 60 Ph D candidates in our department.

Researches in the department focus on the fundamental investigation of macromolecular science including the discipline theories of macromolecular chemistry, macromolecular physics and macromolecular materials, molecular engineering of polymers (molecular design - chemical synthesis - structure and property - materials and applications), and the promotion of frontier of discipline and prospective exploration.

The department has organized a strong-competitive academic team. Now, there are 23 faculty members in our department, including 10 professors, 11 associate professors, 4 lecturers and 1 laboratory technician. Among them, there are 2 distinguished professors of “Chang-jiang Scholars Program” of the Ministry of Education, 2 winners of Outstanding Funding for Young Scientists of the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
