The international exchange has always been the feature of our college. Faculty members at the college assume leadership positions at international academic organizations including president and managing director of Ozone Depletion Assessment Committee (EEAP) at United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the International Steering Committee for Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC), the International Association for Water and Sediment Sciences jointly and deputy editors and editors of SCI journals.
Since 1989 the college has been involved in supporting countries in implementing Montreal Protocol and the Vienna Convention through scientific and technological research work and the technical support in ozone layer protection. Our college compiled China Ozone Depleting Prevention National Program, which is the first national program for developing countries of the world and was translated into six languages. It serves a constructive reference for other developing countries.
The college focuses on the scientific research collaboration based on independent consciousness, designs major science projects aiming at the problem of our country and organizes international joint research team to work on the solution. In recent years, the college continues to build wide and well-operated networks of domestic and international collaboration, carried out various forms of joint research and jointly published many academic papers. Similarly, the college actively takes part in research projects and make great progress in the collaboration with international partners from European Union, the United States, Singapore, Japan and other regions. From 2009 to 2012, the international collaboration value was reaching 30 million RMB.
The College of Environmental Science and Engineering employed internationally renowned scholars including Nobel Chemistry Laureate Professor Molina and Professor Crutzen as international advisory council to help with the development of the research and education of the environmental sciences and engineering discipline at our college. We also held a series of high-level international academic conferences, including the recent 12th International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Conference (IGAC) and Atmospheric Brown Clouds Scientific Executive Meeting. Every year, hundreds of teachers and students attend and publish papers at international academic conferences.
