The College of Materials Science and Engineering of Donghua University was developed from the discipline of chemical fibers, which was established in 1954. The College has trained a lot of high rank scientists and experts for the country and particularly made great contribution in improving technological development of the chemical fiber industry of China since then. The College as well as the discipline at the College has been even greatly developed since the discipline of chemical fiber was affirmed as one of the key disciplines by the Ministry of China Education in 1986. The chemical fiber research institute, a department of the College, was granted as an Excellent Group in Progress of Science and Technology by State Education Commission and State Science and Technology Commission in 1991. In 1992 the State Key Laboratory for Modification of Chemical Fibers and Polymeric Materials was about to be constructed at the College. The College of Materials Science and Engineering was formally founded in 1994, which has the authority for MS degree Programs, Ph. D Programs and Postdoctoral Working Station. Now there are 144 staff members at the College, in which 59% of them hold senior titles, including 33 professors and 19 advisors for Ph. D. candidates. Since the establishment of the discipline, 4319 qualified students have graduated from the College, including 415 and 124 with MS and Doctoral Degrees respectively. In the last ten years, via a series of education reforms, we have obtained a lot of outstanding education achievements, including 3 items of Excellent Education Achievement Awards of ministerial or municipal levels.
In scientific research, the College received annual research funds of more than 15 millions RMB within the recent three years and obtained glorious achievements. Within more than 500 items of the fulfilled scientific research projects, the College won 2 items of "Ten Science & Technology Progress Across China Universities" in 2000 and 2001, more than 10 items of Science and Technology Awards of State Level, more than 40 items of Awards of Ministerial or Municipal Level, and more than 40 certificated patents. The material discipline of our country will soon squeeze in the advanced ranks of the world in the 21st century, thus very urgent tasks will be put forward for the development of our discipline.
For this purpose, all the College staff are working as only one and striving with great efforts for constructing the College into a first class education and research center of materials science and engineering at home.
