The college has developed a fully-fledged training program that can be tailored to various educational purposes from cultivating undergraduates to postdocs. Currently, the annual undergraduate enrollment is on the scale of from 30 to 40. They take university and college level fundamental courses in their fresh and sophomore years and are further trained in the field of either environmental science or environmental engineering in their junior and senior years. For environmental science majors, they can also choose specific areas between environmental science with a focus on nature science and environmental management with a focus on management and policy.
The majors and directions are as follows：
Environmental Science (Natural science)
Environmental Science (Management)
Environmental Science (Big data)
Chemistry (Environmental Chemistry)
Environmental science (Natural science) aims to help students gain knowledge and enhance their capacity in the following aspects: (1) grasp fundamental theories and knowledge in mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology, (2) understand fundamental principles and knowledge in environmental science, (3) get familiar with national policies and regulations on environmental protection, sound utilization of natural resources, and sustainable development, (4) know the latest development in environmental science, and environmental protection industry, and (5) acquire skills in information retrieval, experimental design, data analysis, and academic writing and communication. Environmental science majors may get their degrees only if they fulfill course requirement and finish their thesis. Undergraduates are conferred a Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation.
Environmental engineering aims to help students become aware of sustainability in their decision making, obtain knowledge in water, air, noise, solid waste pollution control, water supply and drainage engineering, environmental planning, and resource protection, acquire skills in pollution control engineering design and management, gain capacity to make environmental planning and carry out environmental management, and be able to develop new theories, technologies and equipment in environmental engineering. Students trained as such are expected to be professionals in pollution prevention and control, environmental remediation and environmental planning and management. Environmental engineering majors may get their degrees only if they fulfill course requirement and finish their thesis. Undergraduates are conferred a Bachelor of engineering degree upon graduation.
Environmental science (management) focuses on the basic principles of the relationship between social economy and environment, explores ways to protect the environment and human health, promotes sustainable social and economic development, and proposes corresponding planning, policy, legal and other management countermeasures. Its research fields include environmental planning, environmental economics, natural resource management, and environmental law. It mainly cultivates compound talents with solid scientific theoretical knowledge of environmental management, systematic analysis and problem solving. Undergraduates are conferred a Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation.
Environmental science (big data) is based on the subject knowledge of environmental science and engineering, and supported by the subject knowledge of mathematics and information science. It integrates the knowledge and methods of environmental science and information science to cultivate compound talents with environmental data mining, environmental system simulation and environmental decision-making capabilities. Its research fields include environmental big data mining, machine learning and environmental applications, and air-water-energy system simulation and application. Undergraduates are conferred a Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation.
Chemistry (environmental chemistry) focuses on the cultivation of basic theoretical knowledge and basic experimental methods of chemistry and environment, the construction of mathematical and physical foundations, and the cross-integration of environmental and chemical disciplines. Through four years of study, students have broad and solid knowledge of chemistry and environment, possess the basic ideas and methods of chemistry to understand the world, possess the ability to obtain, analyze, refine, correlate and integrate information, possess independent learning ability and innovative awareness, possess the basic literacy of engaging in scientific research, and have the ability to solve environmental problems across interdisciplinary methods. Undergraduates are conferred a Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation.
