ABOUT

The School of Materials Science and Engineering (SMSE) of Southeast University was founded in December 1984, and now is composed of four departments: Department of civil engineering materials, Department of metallic materials, Department of electronic information materials, and Department of materials processing engineering. Under the sustained support of National Project 211 and Project 985 and Jiangsu ”2011 Plan”, the comprehensive strength of SMSE has been continuously improved and developed in all aspects over the past20 years.

Discipline Construction----SMSE possesses a post-doctoral research station and a first-class discipline of Ph.D. program in Materials Science and Engineering which covers four second-class disciplines of Ph.D. program, i.e. Materials Science, Material Physics and Chemistry, Materials Processing Engineering, and Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering. In addition, SMSE has a national feature specialty, a provincial key discipline, a provincial advantage discipline, and a provincial collaborative innovation center.

Laboratory Construction----There are two provincial key laboratories in SMSE, which are Jiangsu Key Laboratory for Advanced Metallic Materials and Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Construction Materials. Besides that, many experiment and research centers & labs, such as the CMA qualified Analysis and Testing Center, the Jiangsu Experiment Teaching Demonstration Center, the Research Center for Advanced Materials and the Center for Green Construction Materials, have been established. The above centers & labs can meet the requirements for teaching and research in the school.

Research Activities----The school undertakes various scientific research projects such as National Basic Research Program of China (973 Program), National High-tech R&D Program (863 Program) and the ones sponsored by the nation and province. The school has also taken part in several major state construction projects including the Shenzhou Spacecraft, the Three Gorges Project, etc. Since 2002, the school has won one second prize of National Award for Technological Invention, three third prizes of National Award for Science & Technology Progress, and more than twenty prizes at the provincial and ministerial level. The main research fields in the school include: high performance cement-based composites, eco-friendly construction materialsphotoelectric functional materials, high performance steels with low cost, light alloys, biomedical materials, numerical simulation of materials processing, etc. 

Faculty----Among 74 faculty and staff members in SMSE, there are 41 full or associate professors and 29 doctoral supervisors, including 2 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 2 distinguished experts of ”The Recruitment Program of Global Experts ”, and 2 winners of “China National Funds for Distinguished Young Scientists”. 90% of the faculty members own Ph.D. degrees and over 60% of them have overseas diplomas or learning experiences abroad.

Cultivation of Talents----The annual enrollment plan of MSE includes 125 undergraduates and 119doctoral and master students. It trains undergraduates according to the major of Materials Science and Engineering with four directions of metallic materials, civil engineering materials, electronic information materials and preparation and application of advanced materials. Aiming at cultivating students’ innovation spirit and practice ability, SMSE has set up the creative laboratory of Jiangsu Experiment Teaching Demonstration Center, and established co-production and research bases with several famous companies. From 2004, three students have won the National excellent doctoral dissertation award nomination, seven students have won the excellent doctoral dissertation award of Jiangsu province. SMSE provides more than 30 kinds of scholarships, which could cover 75% of all the students.

International Exchanges----SMSE has been focusing on the international academic front and thus the International cooperation & exchanges play an important role in the development of SMSE. Up to now, it has signed agreements for friendly cooperation with universities and academic institutions in U.S, Germany, U.K, France, Australia, Taiwan and Hong Kong etc. Some international students from France, Egypt, Pakistan, etc. have studied in SMSE, and some excellent Chinese undergraduates in SMSE have been sent to University of Ulm, French Public College of Engineering and National Central University in Taiwan for further study. SMSE also provides the outstanding graduate students the opportunity to study abroad under national support.
