一、学科、专业简介 (Disciplines Instruction)
The chemistry discipline of Qingdao University of Science and Technology was established in 1950. It was approved in 1998 as a "second-class subject for master's degrees in polymer chemistry and physics" and "secondary subject for master's degree in analytical chemistry". In 2005, it was approved with the authorization of "first-class subject for doctorate degree in Polymer Chemistry and Physics " and "first-level subject for Master in Chemistry." In 2009, it was approved to establish postdoctoral station in chemistry, and in 2018, it was approved to authorize “first-class subject for doctorate degree in chemistry. In 2017, in the fourth round of the horizontal assessment conducted by the National Center for the Development of Academic Degrees and Postgraduate Education, the overall level of the first-level discipline of chemistry is B, and it ranks NO. 31 in China. In 2016, chemistry was identified as the "Top-Level Discipline" in Shandong Province.
