INTRODUCTION AND HISTORY of College of Materials Science and Engineering
CMSE owns a strong faculty which is erudite, rigorous and well-structured, consisting of 79 professors and 42 associate professors. CMSE proudly has Professor Li Yuanyuan, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, Professor Wang Guodong, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, and multiple winners of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars including Professor Lian Jianshe, Professor Jiang Qing, Professor Zheng Weitao, Professor Wang Huiyuan and Professor Yan Junmin, teaching in the college. The faculty is among the best which is well balanced in age and expertise, thus guarantees the research here a sustainable prospect. Other outstanding teaching staff includes 1 Young Top-notch Talent (Lang Xingyou) of the Ten Thousand Talent Program, 5 winners (Lang Xingyou, Yan Junmin, Li Quan, Zhang Lijun and Zha Min) of the Science Foundation for Outstanding Youth, 5 “Changbai Scholars” (Yang Chuncheng, Wang Huiyuan, Shen Ping, Cheng Zhiliang and Cui Xiaoqiang), 2 Cross-century Talents of the Ministry of Education (Li Mingzhe and Gao Wang), 8 New-century Talents of the Ministry of Education (Li Min, Wang Huiyuan, Shen Ping, Zhu Yongfu, Yan Junmin, Cui Xiaoqiang, Lang Xingyou, and Gao Wang), 1 winner (Zheng Weitao) of the Award for Excellent Young Teachers in Institutions of Higher Learning, 6 “Tang Aoqing Distinguished Professors” of the Jilin University (Jiang Qing, Zheng Weitao, Jiang Qichuan, Li Mingzhe, Lian Jianshe and Wei Cundi), and 7 “Tang Aoqing Visiting Professors”. On average, more than 40 academic lectures are held every year, and 50 faculty members are sent for academic conferences overseas. In 2019, more than 10% of the students went abroad for academic exchanges. CMSE has gained significant achievements in scientific research and teaching in materials science and engineering. Since its foundation, CMSE has undertaken and completed more than 400 projects of the provincial (ministerial) level and above, including more than 50 projects such as the 973 Program, the 863 Program, the National Key Research and Development Program, key projects and major topics of the National Natural Science Foundation, and the EU Framework Program. CMSE has undertaken 4 major joint projects with the business sector (1 project of RMB 20 million and 3 projects of RMB 10 million), won 27 national, ministerial and provincial scientific and technological achievements awards, including 1 second prize of National Natural Science Award, 2 second prizes of National Award for Technological Invention, 1 second prize of National Award for Scientific and Technological Progress, 1 gold medal and honorable mention of Chinese Patent Award, 11 provincial first prizes, and more than 200 national invention patents;
CMSE has published about 2,200 SCI papers. 2 faculty members have been selected as “Highly Cited Researchers” in the world and 4 as “Highly Cited Researchers” in China; CMSE has participated in the compilation and publication of 10 international monographs and 9 academic monographs (textbooks) in China, exerting great impact in China and beyond.
In terms of talent training, CMSE has cultivated 120 doctors, 462 masters, and 966 bachelors in the recent three years. It owns striking characteristics and advantages in the following fields: 1.
