School of Resources and Environmental Engineering (SREE)
School of Resources and
Environmental Engineering (SREE) of Shanghai Polytechnic University has set up
the Department of Environmental Engineering, the Department of Environmental
Protection Equipment Engineering and the Department of Applied Chemistry. It has
also established the Shanghai Collaborative Innovation Center for WEEE
Recycling (WEE Center), focusing on the resources recycling, and implementing
the principles of "strengthening environmental protection, promoting
development and benefiting people's livelihood".
The School offers three
undergraduate programs: Environmental Engineering, Environmental Protection
Equipment Engineering and Applied Chemistry, and one postgraduate program:
Resources and Environment. The discipline of Environmental Science and
Engineering (Recycling Science and Engineering) has been approved for the
development of Shanghai Plateau Discipline. The School takes the lead in
cultivating Bachelors in Environmental Engineering (WEEE concentration) and Masters
of Engineering to serve the national special needs, and has formed
characteristics in lower carbon recycling technology and equipment, life cycle
management of material flow and carbon footprint, and value-added reuse of
As one of the six schools
offering professional Master’s degree programs at the University, SREE has 34 supervisors,
and about 72% of them are associate professors or above. There are backbone
teachers who have presided over and participated in the national key R&D
programs, National Natural Science Foundation of China projects, etc. at the university,
and industry representatives and enterprise senior engineers outside the university.
Under the "dual-tutor" joint training system, the School can coordinate
resources, establish a learning platform, build an academic relationship
network, optimize the teaching mode and improve the teaching quality. Centering
on the national ecological civilization development and resource recycling
strategy, the Master’s degree program Resources and Environment is based on the
existing characteristic specialization in M.E.—WEEE recycling and pollution
prevention and control. The program focuses on the recycling theory and
technology, environmental pollution prevention and control technology, and
environmental protection equipment development, and carries out relevant
scientific research and personnel training. Now, it has formed an advantageous
platform and characteristic discipline & program group supported by WEEE Center,
National Environmental Protection Training Base, Shanghai Plateau Discipline,
Shanghai Key Discipline, etc.
The School aims to meet the
needs of resource and environmental industries, and is oriented to government
analysis and testing departments, environmental protection chemical product
R&D departments as well as relevant enterprises and public institutions.
Undergraduates generally have lectures in classrooms, while senior
undergraduates and postgraduates mainly take participation in research groups.
The cultivation of postgraduates focuses on three aspect including lower carbon
recycling technology and equipment, life cycle management of material flow and
carbon footprint, and value-added reuse of wastes. The "engineering led-in"
training mode is implemented, the three-step learning process of professional
practice, course learning and dissertation are carried out progressively, and
the "online-to-offline" integration mode is adopted. The curriculum
is designed to meet the talent needs of industries and enterprises. Through
in-class and extra-curricular teaching, online teaching, case teaching, etc.,
it meets the diverse needs of students and the requirements of personalized
The School has a strong
faculty. The faculty team has successively undertaken major projects of the
National Natural Science Foundation of China, key projects of the national key
R&D program of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Shanghai key
disciplines, Shanghai plateau disciplines and other development tasks. The
teachers have won several Shanghai Natural Science Awards, Shanghai Science and
Technology Progress Awards and Shanghai Technological Invention Awards. The
School has also made remarkable achievements in promoting the overall
standardized development, improving the technical level and enhancing the
international influence of the industry.
Students of the School
actively participate in various discipline competitions at all levels during
their school years, and have achieved good results in the "Huawei
Cup" Chinese Postgraduate Contest in Modeling, "GigaDevice Cup"
Competition, Shanghai Zhixing Cup and Shanghai University Students' New
Material Innovation and Creativity Competition. Some graduates work in government
departments like the Solid Waste Management Center of the Ministry of Ecology
and Environment and Shanghai Pudong Water (Group) Co., Ltd., as well as the leading
enterprises in the industry like China Recycling Development Corporation Ltd.,
GEM Co., Ltd. The cultivation quality is highly praised by the enterprises.
