Key Disciplines

to Graduate School

East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST), initially named East China Institute of Chemical Technology, is China’s first renowned institute featuring in Chemistry. Notably, the institute is located in Shanghai, which is a place steeped in heterogeneous cultures and famously attractive to talents far and near. It was early founded in 1952 through the consolidation of the chemical departments of Jiaotong University, Aurora University, Utopia University, Soochow University and Jiangnan University during a nationwide redistribution of the country’s higher education resources in the early 1950's...more

The three disciplines – Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Technics, are included in the first national list for the construction of “First-class Disciplines”. In the fourth round of discipline evaluation by the Ministry of Education, the discipline of Chemical Engineering and Technics was graded at A+, ranking the first of the State. Also, The discipline of Chemical Engineering and Technics is included in the construction of CategoryⅠSummit Disciplines of Shanghai, and the discipline of Chemistry is included in the construction of Category II Summit Disciplines of Shanghai. Moreover, three disciplines – “Design Science”, “Environment and Ecology”, and “Intelligent Science and Technology”, has been participating in the construction of Category IV Summit Disciplines of Shanghai.
