At present, there are more than 220 faculty and staff members (47 full professors and 53 associate professors) in the school, including 2 academician members of Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), 2 chief scientists of National Basic Research 973 Program, 3 chair professors of the Cheungkong Scholars Program, 1 scientist of National Recruitment Program of Global Experts and 4 National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars of China. Besides, a number of renowned scholars and specialist from both domestic and abroad have been invited as honorary and guest professors.
Since East China University of Science and Technology is founded as the first single-subject chemical institute in China (formed through the consolidation of the chemical departments of several famous universities such as Jiaotong University, Aurora University, Utopia University and etc.), the School of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering is one of the leading and high-ranking chemistry research departments in China, offering fully built-up education system and degree programs at undergraduate and postgraduate (including mater and doctoral) levels, as well as post-doctoral workstation. For undergraduate education, there are three disciplines: Chemistry, Applied Chemistry (comprising of Applied Chemistry and Fine Chemical Engineering) and Materials Chemistry, with Applied Chemistry as one of the National Key Discipline. For graduate education, there are 9 Ph.D programs, 9 mater-degree programs and 2 engineering master programs covering 4 specialties of Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Industrial Catalysis and Materials Chemistry. Our school undertakes annually more than 30 national research programs and publishes more than 200 SCI papers and 100 EI papers each year. Currently, there are more than 1400 registered full-time undergraduate students, 600 master degree candidates, 150 engineering master degree candidates, 250 Ph.D candidates as well as 10 post-doctors.
