Dear students, on behalf of all the teachers and students of the School of Chemistry and Biological Engineering (SCBE) of USTB, I’m eagerly looking forward to your arrival! 

In the 21st century, the world's scientific and technological development has shown a new trend, and the domestic economic and social development has put forward new requirements. The research and development innovation and industrial agglomeration in the fields of chemistry and chemical industry, biomedicine, space observation, marine development, new energy, new materials and so on have become a powerful driving force of the new economic growth point. It is at this new historical starting point that the Shool of Chemistry and Biology engineering emerges as the times require and becomes a shining pearl on the new development blueprint of USTB. 

SCBE’s training is "to obtain knowledge by investigation of things, to bring forth the new through the old." Building a harmonious school, a happy school, a characteristic school, and a first-class school are our common goals. The unique concept of running a school, broad international vision, innovative management mode, outstanding teaching staff, active academic atmosphere, advanced teaching methods, streamlined scientific research acheivements, and excellent talent output are our school characteristics. 

SCBE now has three departments: Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Department of Biological Science and Engineering, and Department of Polymer Science. It has a research center for Bioengineering and Sensing Technology and three provincial and ministerial key laboratories, namely “Beijing Key Laboratory for Science and Application of Functional Molecular and Crystalline Materials”, “Pesticide residues and Environmental Toxicology of USTB” (Pesticide Registration Residue Test and Certification Unit of the Ministry of Agriculture), “Beijing key Laboratory for Bioengineering and Sensing Technology”. According to the present situation and future development trends at home and abroad, SCBE has two undergraduate majors, Applied Chemistry and Biotechnology, with distinctive characteristics and the combination of science and technology. Now SCBE has an outstanding teaching staff of 119, including 103 full-time teachers, 27 doctoral supervisors, 37 professors and 29 associate professors, including 2 Distinguished Professors of the Yangtze River Scholars Award Program, 3 winners of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 2 leading talents of the "Ten thousand talents Program", 1 candidate of Millions of Talent Projects National candidates, 1 National Excellent Youth Science Fund winner, 8 talents of the Ministry of Education in the new century, and 6 winners of Beijing New Science and Technology Stars. The college also has a group of students with aspirations, challenges and excellence. At present, there are more than 820 students, including 443 undergraduates, 127 doctoral students and 258 master students. They are studying hard here, concentrating on scientific research, pioneering and innovating, forging ahead, and the rate of advancement and employment rate are among the highest in the school. Most alumni have become the pillars and backbone of state organs, institutions of public institutions, central enterprises, colleges and universities, and research institutes. 

The ancients said, "set your heart for heaven and earth, for the people, for the saints of the past to continue learning, for all ages to safeguad world peace". Applying for the School of Chemistry and Biological Engineering of USTB is your correct choice,  so that your dreams will be put on your wings and sail away from here!
