About Us

Established in 1952, School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), Shandong University (SDU), has developed a comprehensive personnel training system, offering Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degree programs in science and engineering during its 60 years' development. It covers three second level discipline, namely, Materials Science, Materials Processing Engineering and Materials Physics & Chemistry. Under the special support of National "Project 211" and "Project 985", it is one of the best schools in SDU, featuring comprehensive disciplines, distinctive characteristics, highly established faculty members and advanced teaching facilities.


Currently, the school has a teaching and administrative staff of 160, including 52 professors (40 Ph.D supervisors) and 34 associate professors. Among them, there are 85 holding doctoral degree, occupying 84% of total full-time teachers. Besides, there is 1 distinguished professor of the "Cheung Kong Scholar Program" by the Ministry of Education, 3 recipients of the "National Natural Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China", 2 experts from the "Taishan Scholars" by Shandong Province, 2 experts from the "Qilu Scholars" by Shandong Province, 1 candidate of New Century Bai Qian Wan Talents Project at national level and 2 New Century Talents Project. It also boasts 7 winners of New Century Excellent Talents supported by Ministry of Education project, 8 young and middle-aged experts making outstanding national and provincial contributions, 11 State Council experts entitled to special allowances, 1 national teaching master, 1 national teaching group and 1 scientific research team affiliated to the Ministry of Education. It now has over 30 personnel working at post-doctoral research station and over 1700 full-time students, among which there are about 130 doctoral candidates, 300 master candidates and 1300 undergraduates.


At present, the school boasts national level-one key discipline of MSE, doctoral and post-doctoral research station of MSE, Key Laboratory for Liquid- Solid Structural Evolution and Processing of Materials that is recognized by the Ministry of Education, It also consists of 4 Shandong provincial key laboratories (Materials Engineering, Liquid Metal and its Heredity, Engineering Ceramics and Polymer Materials), 4 provincial engineering and technique research centers (Carbon Fibers, Modern Welding Technology, Plastic Forming and Moulding Technology and Superhard Materials) and 4 provincial key disciplines (Metallic Materials & Heat Treatment, Casting, Plastic Forming of Metals and Welding).The Materials Processing and Engineering belongs to key discipline under provincial's strengthened support and has also set up positions for distinguished professors under "Cheung Kong Scholar Program" by the Ministry of Education. Moreover. Materials Science and Materials Processing and Engineering both establish positions for "Taishan Scholars" by Shandong Province.


With a fixed asset amounting nearly to one hundred million yuan, the school occupies over 13000 square meters of lab space, which is equipped with more than 100 large-scale precision instruments offering state- of-art teaching and research conditions. By sticking to the principle of "Theory with Innovation, Research for Application", we have achieved profound results in scientific research. For example, we hove obtained National Science and Technology Award for 24 times as the first organization. In the past 5 years, we've undertaken more than 300 research projects including those sponsored by "Project 863" and “Project 973", projects funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National Defense Pre-research Project, projects supported by the State Science and Technology Ministry, Provincial and Ministerial Projects as well as numerous industrial projects. We rank high among. domestic counterparts in respect to major scientific research indexes, including scientific achievement rewards above ministerial and provincial levels, papers published in SCI/El and patents authorized by the state


The school strives with vigorous strides to realize its goal of becoming a primarily world-class and open research institute in the next ten years.
