The School of Environmental Science and Engineering, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012, is one of the three key discipline groups of Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology in Environmental Science and Engineering. Established in 2002, our school has rapidly grown from a single department into a school with four departments offering a rational range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in environmental studies that have always received positive recognition.
The School of Environmental Science and Engineering is a friendly and inspiring place where students will be given the structure and resources, as well as a collegial environment, to prepare for their professional career or further studies. The School features in the following four departments:
Staff and students
The School of Environmental Science and Engineering, led by Professor Mindong Chen, and is staffed by dedicated environmentalists, ecologists, engineers and chemists. About 1200 undergraduate students are currently registered for BSc degrees involving environmental studies, ecology, chemistry and engineering; a further 130 postgraduate students are registered for MSc degrees. We have a thriving community of 80 full-time faculties and staff.
