School of Chemistry and Material Engineering covers two undergraduate majors, chemical engineering & technology and polymeric materials and engineering, and one junior undergraduate major, comprehensive processing and utilization of coal. The full-time students studying here involve 552 undergraduates and 199 junior undergraduates, which come from 15 provinces/autonomous regions. It has a teaching staff of 37, of whom 34 are professional teachers, and the staff involves 4 professors, 9 associated professors; among which 13 doctors, together with the masters account for 70% of the staff. The staff has strong capability of teaching and scientific research. In the last three years, the members of the whole staff published more than 100 scientific articles in various journals, and 12 monographs/teaching materials, among which 40 articles are published in core journals, 24 ones are embodied by SCI/EI. The whole staff accomplished over 20 scientific research programs, receiving 5 times of provincial/departmental awarding projects and 6 other awarding items. Our Faculty has a laboratory center,covering laboratories of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, principles of chemical industry,coal evaluation, industrial analysis and precise instrumental analysis. This center owns more than 10 good-sized instruments and apparatus such as Fourier transition infrared spectrometer, gas chromatography, rheometer, thermo gravimetric analyzer, etc. Meanwhile the opening laboratory provides internet choices of designing experiments for the whole students, allowing the top students participating in teacher's studying tasks.
Our Faculty has a computer center, and can afford a computer simulating teaching of chemical experiments to common chemical courses of our Faculty as well as the whole university, and also offers helps to scientific research. We have well-suited extramural bases of teaching practice, including China Shenma Group, Pingdingshan Tianying Group, Pingdingshan Feixin Group, Pingdingshan Shenxiang Group, and Pingdingshan Hingxiang Group, etc., and these large corporations of chemical industry provide platforms and a guarantee for practice teaching and scientific research. Since the beginning of the Faculty of chemical engineering, we take "virtue, erudition, deliberation, and truth" as our motto, and use "solidifying foundation, pursuing integration and emphasizing practicality" as a philosophy into talent training. Our graduates are welcomed in society production because of their firm foundation, high integrated quality, wide knowledge areas and good ability of practice, and Employment rates of our graduates have remained over 95% for the last several years.
