Department of Chemical Engineering, established in 1970, has fostered excellent expertise and outstanding personal character among our students. The Master Program initiated in 1982 and the Doctoral Program in 1986 balance chemical engineering fundamentals with industrial technology. Since 1970s, the Department has educated distinguished scholars and technical leaders. Currently, the department has 15 full-time faculty members, approximately 350 undergraduates, 40 Master Program students, and 2 Doctoral Program students. Today, our faculty is involved in research programs not only in the traditional chemical engineering fields, but also actively in developing nanotechnology, high-tech materials science, resources and environmental protection, and sustainable energy and so on.
