Materials and chemical engineering is one of the first-level research field in QUST, two corresponding first grade disciplines could award doctor’s degree in Material Science and Engineering, and Chemical Engineering and Technology. Two directions of the discipline (material science, engineering) have entered Top 1% in global ESI list. Five corresponding undergraduate majors have passed Washington Accord for engineering education, three corresponding undergraduate majors were awarded the first-level disciplines in China.
After seventy years development, the discipline has well known in the industrial fields of chemical engineering, rubber and materials. The discipline plans to further its advantage in the interdisciplinary fields of macromolecular science in rubber production, nano-material, metal and non-metal materials, green chemical technology, multi-phase reaction and separation, chemical utilization of natural resources; to service local and national society and economical development.
二、培养目标(Objectives of Training)
It is committed to training senior personnel with an all-round development in morality, intelligence, physique and art and adaptive to the development of materials and chemical engineering related areas. The graduate students should master the fundamental theories and systematic expertise. They should master a foreign language to skillfully read professional literatures. They should have strong capabilities of solving practical problems and making innovations.
三、学制及学习年限（Educational System and Length of Schooling）
The length of schooling for full-time master students is three years and should always be less than five years. Course of study time is 0.5 to 1 year and the scores are only valid in 5 years. The management of course study is based on the credit system. The courses of full-time graduate students are constituted by the obligatory courses and selective courses, with the total credits of no less than 32 credits, the degree course of no less than 18 credits, the non-degree courses of no less than 8 credits, and 6 credits for the research section.
