College of Materials and Chemistry

Feb 22, 2023

College of Materials and Chemistry is a featured college of China Jiliang University (CJLU), mainly engaged in scientific research and social services in the field of measurement and testing, such as magnetic materials, electronic information materials, metal materials, new energy materials, advanced carbon materials, multifunctional protective materials and stoichiometric testing. The college aims to train professionals in the fields of new material development, testing and service evaluation, and stoichiometric testing.

The college now has two first-level disciplines, "Materials Science and Engineering" and "Chemistry", both of which are among the top 1% disciplines in ESI. There is a first-level discipline master's degree  program in Materials science and Engineering, which is a key discipline of CJLU. In 2016, materials science and engineering was listed as a class B first-class discipline of  Zhejiang Province.

The College has two undergraduate programs: Materials science and Engineering and applied chemistry, among which materials science and engineering is the construction site of "National first-class Major",  major with engineering education certification, advantageous major and key major in Zhejiang Province. The major of Applied Chemistry mainly cultivate talents in the field of stoichiometry. In cooperation with Aalen University of Technology and Economics in Germany, students can get a double degree from both universities after learning the agreed courses.

The college has a strong faculty, with 87 staff members, including 68 full-time teachers, 21 teachers with senior professional titles, 19 teachers with associate professional titles. All full-time teachers have doctor's degrees. The college has Zhejiang provincial key science and technology innovation team of magnetic/optoelectronic materials preparation and testing technology, Zhejiang provincial key science and technology innovation team of nanomaterials and devices (participating), and Zhejiang provincial college innovation team of new materials preparation and testing. Some teachers are members of the national standardization technical committee, experts with the State Council special allowance, members of the Ministry of Education Materials Teaching Instruction Committee, Zhejiang provincial outstanding youth, Zhejiang provincial 151 key talent, Zhejiang provincial experts with outstanding contribution, Zhejiang provincial outstanding teachers, Zhejiang provincial young and middle-aged academic leaders, Zhejiang provincial research and development talents in colleges and universities, and national young scientists in key projects. There are currently more than 500 undergraduate students and 200 postgraduate students in the college. In recent years, the college has implemented the dual tutorial system for undergraduates. Undergraduates have won more than 80 national and provincial prizes for extracurricular academic science and technology works, and have published more than 40 SCI papers as the first author. The average postgraduate entrance rate in the past three years has reached more than 50%. In the past three years, postgraduate students have published more than 200 high-level academic papers (SCI included) and more than 40 authorized patents as the first author, and have won two second prizes in China Postgraduate Students Innovation Practice Series Competition.

The college has a national quality inspection and testing center for magnetic material and its products  (Zhejiang), a national key laboratory of State Administration for Market Regulation (key functional materials testing and service evaluation), a model international technology cooperation base for national functional materials measurement and testing standards, 2011 collaborative innovation center in Zhejiang province, Zhejiang province key laboratory of magnetic materials, and Zhejiang province rare earth magnetic/photoelectric functional materials engineering laboratory. The total value of instruments and equipment  reaches more than 60 million yuan.

Adhering to the concept of "relying on the industry, serving the local, based in Zhejiang, and facing the whole country", the college has been vigorously carrying out teaching and scientific research, and deeply promoting the industry-university-research cooperation with the local government, quality inspection industry and enterprises. In the past five years, the college has presided over and undertaken more than 200 scientific research projects, such as the major international cooperation projects of the Ministry of Science and Technology, the national quality inspection public welfare technology projects, and projects funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, with a total funding of more than 80 million yuan. The college has won 9 important achievement awards such as the second prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award and the first prize of Zhejiang Provincial Science and Technology Award. It has built more than 10  research and development and measurement and testing centers of new materials with enterprises, and won the honorary title of the Top Ten Colleges of Hangzhou Science and Technology Innovation.
