1.       Training Aim

The aim of this undergraduate student training program is to provide professional-level understanding of the basic theory, foundational knowledge, and fundamental technical skills of Chemistry so as to prepare students for careers in chemical and chemistry-related science and technology areas, including but not limited to scientific research, teaching, management, manufacturing, marketing, and commerce. Moreover, the graduate is expected to further their studies in Chemistry at the graduate level at a famous university at home and/or abroad.

 

2.       Training Requirements

The undergraduate student should study the foundational knowledge, basic theory, and basic skills in Chemistry along with, related engineering technology knowledge. Additionally, the student should undergo general training in scientific thinking and scientific experiments in both basic research and applied basic research. The student should demonstrate an adequate ability to conduct applied chemical research (Chemical Engineering), technology development, and management of science and technology using the knowledge and experimental skills gained from this training program.

 

The undergraduate should obtain the following knowledge and abilities::

1)      to master the foundational theories and basic knowledge of mathematics, physics etc.;

2)      to master the basic knowledge, foundational principles, and experimental skills of inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry (including structural chemistry), polymeric chemistry and physics, green chemistry, biological chemistry and chemical engineering;

3)      to know the general principles and knowledge of similar majors;

4)      to know the national laws and regulations about science and technology studies, the policy on chemistry-related industries, and intellectual property at home and abroad;

5)      to know the theoretical frontiers, prospects for application, and the latest developments in the field of Chemistry and the status of development of chemistry-related industies;

6)      to be able to comprehensively use a foreign language to use modern information technology for consulting Chinese and foreign data, retrieving documents, and accessing related information.. Moreover, the student should be able to employ their mastery of a foreign language for experimental design, understanding and inductively interpreting experimental conditions and results, processing and analyzing data, writing academic papers, as well as other forms of academic exchange.
