History

 
The College of Chemical Engineering is one of the core colleges of the Beijing University of Chemical Technology. The origin of this college can trace back to the year of 1958, the same year as the university’s establishment, when it consisted of the two specialties of Basic Organic Synthesis and Inorganic Chemical Engineering. In 1978, the Department of Chemical Engineering was founded amidst readjustments of Colleges and departments. In 1984, our Doctoral program was approved by the Office of Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council and our Postdoctoral Research Station on Chemical Engineering and Technology was set up in 1988. In 1996, the College of Chemical Engineering was founded on the basis of the Department of Chemical Engineering, the Department of Pharmaceutical and Biological Engineering, the Department of Environmental Engineering, and the Chemical Research Institute. In 2000, our discipline of Chemical Engineering and Technology was approved as a first-level discipline to confer the Doctor’s degree. In 2001, the discipline of Chemical Engineering became a national key discipline. In 2005, our Postdoctoral Research Station on Chemical Engineering and Technology was rated “nationally excellent”. In the disciplinary assessment carried out by the Ministry of Education in 2006, our fist-level discipline of Chemical Engineering and Technology was rated “fifth” among the same disciplines of the whole country. In 2007, Chemical Engineering and Technology became one of the first batch of national first-level key disciplines. In 2014, the Postdoctoral Research Station on Environmental Science and Engineering was established. As an important base for the cultivation of China’s advanced talents in chemical engineering and scientific research, our College of Chemical Engineering ranks first-class among all the colleges and departments of the same kind in China.
