1. Overview of discipline

The first-level PhD program for chemical engineering and technology has the right to confer the Master of Engineering. The subject is derived from daily chemical, greasy chemical, industrial fermentation, fine chemical and relevant majors. The fine chemical master program was among master programs of the first batch approved by the State Council in 1981 and the fine chemical major was listed as ministry-level key subject in 1988. The PhD program of applied chemistry was established in 2005 and the first-level PhD program for chemical engineering and technology was established in 2010. After the school running for several years, it has fostered thousands of senior professional talents for the light chemical field inChina, particularly fine chemical, daily chemical, surfactant and related industries. Thus, it is called the cradle of talents in the light chemical industry inChina. Now there are 103 teachers in this program. 24% of them are professors, 55.3% of them are associate professors, 75.7% of them are PhD and 43.7% of them have the experience of oversea study for six months or longer. Three teachers are distinguished professor of China Thousand Talents Program, one teacher is funded by The National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, one teacher is the national candidate of New Century Million Talents Project, four teachers are listed in the New Century Talents Program of Ministry of Education and 23 teachers are listed in Jiangsu Talents Program. In addition, an innovation group of Jiangsu universities has been set up. The subject relies on the Talent Recruitment Base, 111 Program of Ministry of Education, Joint International Research Center of Light-response Functional Molecular Materials, Key Lab of Colloid in Foods and Biotechnology (Ministry of Education), Jiangsu Engineering Technical Research Center of Industrial Chromatograph and other platform, focuses on colloid and interface chemistry in biomass processing, special separation engineering in biomass processing, oriented conversion of biomass resources to functional fine chemicals, integrated quality and safety assessment technology of biomass products, fundamental research and application development of materials chemistry and other scientific issues and defines the discipline orientation that is distinct from and surpasses competitors in China.
