HISTORY

School of materials science and engineering was founded in December, 1984. It initially consisted of the research group of metallic material from the former school of mechanical engineering, metallic material research laboratory, analysis and testing center. Then, the construction materials and products group from the former school of civil engineering and the materials processing group were merged into the school of materials science and engineering successively. After the establishment of school of materials science and engineering, remarkable achievements have been made in discipline construction, scientific research, talent training, teaching staff and laboratory construction. The comprehensive strength of school of materials science and engineering has been improved continuously through unceasing integration and enrichment.

In December, 1984, the school of materials science and engineering was founded after the approval of Southeast University to suit the development of science and technology. It was made up of the research group and research laboratory of metallic material from the former school of mechanical engineering. The undergraduate major, metallic material, joined in the school of materials science and engineering later on. 

In August, 1989, the analysis and testing center was separated from the school of materials science and engineering to establish the independent analysis and testing center for the service of the entire university.

In 1990, the master degree program of metallic materials was set up.

In 1992, the construction materials and products group from the former school of civil engineering and the materials processing group were merged into the school of materials science and engineering. Then the master degree program of construction materials and inorganic nonmetallic materials incorporated in.

In 1994, the master degree program of composite materials was set up.

In October, 1997, the research institution of materials science and engineering was established.

In 1998, the school of materials science and engineering set up undergraduate course, materials science and engineering, which had metallic materials and civil engineering materials two talents cultivation orientation. In June the same year, the experiment center of materials science and engineering was established, which consisted of metallic materials laboratory and civil engineering materials laboratory.

In 2000, the first-level doctoral discipline of materials science and engineering was set up after the approval of the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council, including “materials physics and chemistry”, “materials science” and “materials processing” second-level doctoral disciplines.

In 2003, the analysis and testing center of Southeast University and the materials processing group from the school of mechanical engineering were merged into the school of materials science and engineering. In October the same year, the stations for post-doctoral research of materials science and engineering was set up and the major of electronic information materials was add into the talents cultivation orientation.

In 2004, the second-level doctoral discipline of biomaterials and tissue engineering was set up. The major of preparation and application of advanced materials was added into the talents cultivation orientation.

In December, 2005, Professor Sun Wei was elected to the Chinese academy of engineering.

In June, 2006, the major of materials was chosen as the key construction course during the period of “11th five-year” of Jiangsu Province after the approval of government.

In December, 2006, Professor He Deping won the second prize of national technological innovation (Rank 1st).

In April, 2007, the civil engineering materials laboratory became the key construction laboratory after the approval of government of Jiangsu Province. The Advanced metallic materials laboratory became the key construction laboratory in July.
