I、 Project Introduction

1. Brief Introduction of The College

The discipline of Materials Science and Engineering in Tongji University is one of the first doctoral disciplines established by the state in 1981. In 1987, inorganic nonmetallic materials were included in the first national key disciplines. In 2000, it became a PhD authorization point for the first class of materials science and engineering, and was allowed to set up a post-doctoral station for materials science and Engineering in the same year. In 1997 materials Science was included in the Ministry of education "211 Project" key construction disciplines, in 2002 included in the "985 Project" key construction disciplines, in 2010 included in the Ministry of education "specialty" discipline construction, in 2011 included in the Ministry of education of "excellent engineer education training plan" the implementation major, and enter the international academic world's top ESI 1%. This subject has " advanced civil engineering materials in Ministry of education Key Laboratory ", "Shanghai Key Laboratory for application and development of metal functional materials" and "Shanghai powder metallurgy Automotive Material Industry Technology Engineering Center". The discipline has established cooperation with the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Finland, Spain and other more than 10 countries and regions, such as the joint training of scientific research and graduate students.

2. Training Objectives

The College of Materials Science and Engineering aims at developing research elites in materials with global perspectives, who will be dedicated to contribute to social sustainable development.

The applicant of this program is limited to overseas student. Doctoral students should complete designated curriculum study and research work, which is necessary for you to be qualified to apply for a doctoral degree. This program awards Ph.D degree in “Engineering”.

3. Research Field
