Chemical Faculty

       Kunming University of Science and Technology's Department of Chemical Engineering was founded in 1958. Several readjustments have been done over the past 50 years. Our department was authorised by the State Council of China to award MA degrees for applied chemistry, chemical engineering as well as chemical engineering and technology in 1986, 2003, 2005 respectively. Our department has two provincial key disciplines: Phosphorus Chemical Technology and Equipment, Applied Chemistry. With development of around 50 years, it has already become the essential center for cultivation of technology talents and prides itself on conducting research in chemical engineering in Yunnan province.
There are about 800 students in the Department of chemical engineering, among which 700 are undergraduate students and 100 are graduate students in either master¡¯s or doctoral programs. The Department offers a sound undergraduate education in chemical engineering (chemical technology, fine chemical and industrial analysis), energy and chemical engineering (coal chemical industry and petroleum processing engineering). Through designing our undergraduate and graduate programs to ensure students receive a thorough grounding in fundamental and applied topics in chemical engineering. Our Department provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to study and conduct research with academic-staff in the top program in China.
    At present, we offer opportunities for advanced education and research leading to Master of chemical engineering and technology, Master of applied chemistry and Master of industrial calatysis as well as Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Resource Chemical Engineering. Through participating in various subjects about frontiers of the discipline and practical engineering projects, the graduates are fostered with comprehensive professional essentials and independent ability in scientific research. As far as employment is concerned, 100% of our graduates have found jobs when they graduated.
    The teaching staff in Department of chemical engineering is very qualified persons: 11 professors and 16 associate professors, more than 40% of staff with doctoral degree and 10% of staff with master¡¯s degree.
    we have external research funding from government and industrial sources. Our research interests cover several major aspects of chemical engineering and energy chemical engineering which include preparation of catalytic materials, processing of natural product; porous ceramics; processing and recovery of solid wastes; natural polymer and polymer modification; multifunction polymer nanocomposite and so on.
Our main target is to foster the students with comprehensive professional essentials and ¡°rigor, diligence, truthfulness, innovation¡± is our motto.     The department will continue to emphasize the discipline construction, promote high-tech transfer and provide more qualified professionals and technical supports for China's economic development.
