School of Polymer Science and Engineering is the cradle of talent training in the rubber industry. At present, there are more than 2,000 undergraduates, 400 postgraduates and doctors, and 150 junior college students.
The College has 141 faculty members including 30 professors, 42 associate professors, an National Outstanding Young Scientists Fund, a young and middle-aged expert with outstanding contributions from the country, and a leading talent team with Taishan scholars' superior characteristics. There are one national candidate for millions of talents projects, one expert for thousands of talents, one talented person for the National Outstanding Young Scientists Fund, one outstanding national teacher, six scholars of Taishan including overseas, one famous provincial teacher, three outstanding experts who contributes to our province and 7 talents enjoying the State Council government allowance. The middle-aged and young backbone teachers in teaching and researching all have doctoral degrees ,which is a high-level, and well-structured teaching group. The college holds national first-level doctoral and master's degree in materials science materials processing engineering, polymer chemistry and physics . There are also three master's degree programs and a post-doctoral research station for materials science and engineering. There are 15 doctoral supervisors and 75 master supervisors.
The college has established close cooperation with domestic and foreign industry and research institutes. The College actively carries out foreign exchanges and cooperation, and has always maintained a good cooperative relationship with the United States, Germany, Japan, Canada, South Korea and other foreign counterparts in scientific research and personnel training. The University of Akron and the United States have started a joint "3+2" mode of graduate student training; they have also cooperated with the Korean Gyeongsang University to hold undergraduate education programs in macromolecular materials and engineering. Successfully held several major academic conferences such as the International Forum on Rubber and Plastic Technology and the Taishan Scholars Forum with international influence. Well-known domestic and foreign enterprises set up scholarships in our hospital for more than 400,000 yuan each year, and the employment rate of graduates has been at the forefront of the school for many years.
In the course of future construction and development, the College will continue to adhere to the guiding ideology of featured schools, implement the “16-character” policy of teaching institute, research institutes, strong institutions, and characteristic development, and build first-rate domestic and internationally renowned research.
