Chemical Engineering and Technology is a discipline of applied technology, which is focus on the fundamental rules of chemical and physical processes in various process industries, represented by chemical industry. It combines different engineering disciplines such as chemical engineering, chemical technology, biochemical engineering, applied chemistry, and industrial catalysis. In 1986, the subject of Chemical Engineering in our university was granted a discipline to authorize master's degree. Furthermore, Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry were approved to authorize doctor's degree in 2003. As a first level discipline, Chemical Engineering and Technology was qualified to authorize master's degree of first-grad discipline in 2005, a postdoctoral station in 2008, and doctor's degree of first-grad discipline in 2010. The sub-discipline, chemical engineering, is among the Shandong province first Mount Tai scholars; Clean Chemical Engineering Labarotary is the key laboratory of Shandong Province. Ecological chemical laboratory became a key laboratory, Ministry of Education in 2008, and was entitled the Breeding Nation’s Key Laboratory in 2010. In 2017, Qingdao University of Science & Technology took the lead in building "eco chemical Collaborative Innovation Center", and the construction focus on the leading industry and the strategic emerging industry. Chemical Engineering and Technology is the first-class national specialty, meanwhile chemical process experiment center and center of virtual simulation for chemical process & equipment are the national experimental teaching demonstration center. Applied Chemistry is also the national specialty, which is among the first entitled in Shandong Province.
There are a group of high-level teachers with a reasonable structure in the discipline. In the past fifty years, nearly ten thousand students have graduated from the discipline, who made great contributions to the society in the field of chemical industry, and enjoyed a high reputation from enterprises, research institutions to other employers. The discipline is characterized by the combination of theory and engineering practice, and by actively taking the integrated system of production, teaching and research. Researches aim at the discipline’s latest development, and constantly explore and innovations, combining with the needs of local economic development. It has had a number of stable research subjects, won a series of important research achievements and had realized the industrialization with notable economic and social benefits. It combines teaching with engineering design, technical innovation and scientific research, and it has cultivated a large number of excellent academic and administrative talents for large-scale chemical enterprises. For the community of chemical process simulation and system engineering, they worked closely with Yantai Wanhua Group, created the course of large-scale production of polyurethane and won second-class National Science and Technology Progress Award twice. In 2007, they and Yinguang group got the first prize for scientific and technological progress in Gansu Province. They are now in cooperation with the weapon industry company for the study of new polyurethane products and new technologies. For the academic group of particle and multiphase, they carried out the fundamental research theory and new technology development in particle fluidization and multiphase fluid reactions, and made a series of prominent achievements in the field of large reactor design, new energy, chemical looping combustion, and environmental technology. In the fields of applied chemistry, catalyst engineering and chemical technology, they aim at the frontier topics of functional chemicals, natural resource utilization, and clean production, which provides talent and technology support for the new product development and technological innovation in the petrochemical, Xinhua pharmaceutical and other enterprises. In the field of biochemical engineering, they have carried out the research of high effective chemotherapy and biological pesticides using enzyme technology.
二、培养目标( Objectives of Training)
Chemical Engineering and Technology is committed to training senior talents characterized by an all-round development in morality, intelligence, physical and art，having a high sense of social responsibility and good moral cultivation, to adapt to the development of chemical engineering and technology, and other related disciplines, who can engage in the economic construction of modern chemical industry and international chemical industry. These high-level talents should master at least one foreign language and the fundamental theories and systems expertise, and have innovation, team spirit and the wider international perspective, rigorous study style and mental health, and be able to engage in the design, development, research, education, production and management in modern chemical and related industries.
三、学制及学习年限（Educational System and Length of Schooling）
The constraint length of schooling for Doctor’s Degree candidates ranged from three to four years and students are allowed to graduate according to the actual situation, but less than 5 years. The length of curriculum is from 1 to 2 semesters, and the time for study of the thesis is at least 2 years. On the credit system for Doctor’s Degree, students should obtain at least 24 credits for the whole course, with 14 credits for the degree courses and 10 credits in a degree class, 10 credits for the research.
