School of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering


The School of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering (SCME) was founded in April 2015 by the National Synergetic Innovation Center. As part of Overseas Talent Base, SCME combines the advantages of two disciplines in Nanjing Tech University: chemistry and applied chemistry, both of which can be dated back to 1980s. Underpinned by its disciplinary strength, SCME has established the Department of Applied Chemistry, Experimental Teaching Center of Chemistry, and three research institutes in the field of applied chemistry, water treatment and organic synthesis. Recognized as one of the fastest-rising schools in Nanjing Tech, SCME puts tremendous effort on attracting extraordinary research experts and talents all over the world. Currently, it has a size of 82 full-time faculty members and 11 supporting staff. The faculty is comprised of 22 professors, 49 associate professors and 11 assistant professors/lecturers ( among the faculty members, there are 6 Ph.D. supervisors and 45 Master supervisors). More than 95% of them have doctoral degrees, including 1 member of the "Thousand Talents Plan", 1 talent of the Recruitment Program for Overseas Young Professionals, 1 Distinguished Professor of Jiangsu Province, 1 Excellent Young Expert, 2 Leading Researchers of Jiangsu Province and 1 winner of Outstanding Instructors.

The school offers high-quality education to undergraduate, master and Ph.D. students. The major programs are: Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Resource Science and Engineering, Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Pesticide Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering. Currently, there are over 1000 undergraduate, 200 master and 20 Ph.D. students in SCME. With an emphasis on teaching, SCME has won various teaching awards in course evaluations. Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry has won the honor of Provincial Excellent Course, and Hydrochemistry and Water Treatment Technology has received the award of Top-quality Course of Nanjing Tech University.

Since 2011, the faculty has undertaken a series of research projects that are making significant impacts on social and economic development both regionally and nationwide. Over 50 government-sponsored research projects have been conducted in SCME, including the National High-tech R&D Program of China ("863 Program"), key projects of NSFC, and major national and provincial projects of science and technology. In addition to the projects funded by government, SCME has also been extremely active in securing financial support for research from industries. By the end of 2015, SCME has involved in approximately 1000 projects in collaboration with industries. It has also received numerous academic awards including the 2nd prize for National Sci-Tech Progress Award, Sci-Tech Invention Award by the National Petroleum and Chemical Industry Association, and other 10 provincial Sci-Tech Progress Awards. Meanwhile, over 50 nationally and internationally authorized patents and 500 research articles have been published by the faculty, in which more than 200 of the papers were accepted by top-tier SCI and EI journals.
