School of Food and Environment
The School of Food and Environmentis built on the basis of several traditional subjects of Dalian University of Technology, including the chemistry engineering and technology (biochemistry direction), chemistry, environment science and engineering, biology science, crop genetic breeding, etc. The main subjects are environmental ecology engineering and food science & engineering. Both subjects provide undergraduate and post-graduate education.
Our education and research activities are conducted based on the Panjinlocal natural status and resources, and focus on botany, modern biotechnology, plant genecology, wetland ecology, ocean and river ecology, farm and marine product technology, food safety, etc. An innovation center to incorporate farm product processing and food technology is under planning, targeting the improved personnel training, discipline construction, and scientific research. By the means of cooperation with Panjin superior agricultural and industrial enterprises, we aim to further develop and upgradeour school to theinternational level.
Environmental ecology engineering
The objective of this major is to train studentsto gain solid knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, and geometry science; to have the idea of sustainable development; to achieve the primary theory and technology of environment science, engineering, and ecology science; to gain innovation ability; to be able to analyze and partially solve the environmental ecology problems; and to understand the interaction discipline among human activity, society development and environment ecology changing, etc.
Main courses: geochemistry, environmental geoscience, ecological chemistry, introduction to environmental engineering, ecology science, industrial ecology, botany, zoology, ecology monitoring and assessment, environmental ecology engineering, ecotoxicology, ecological planning, etc.
The graduate students are suitable to conduct work in the area of management and research related with environmental ecology engineering, restoration and construction of ecosystem, ecological design and planning, etc., either in the government organization, enterprises or education department related with environment and ecology protection.
This subject is allowed to confer master and doctor degree.
Food Science and Engineering
The objective of this major is to train students to gain solid knowledge of chemistry and biology science; to understand the technical principalsof food engineering; to be qualified for engineering design; to achieve food safety principals and technology; to gain innovation ability; to beableto work for product development, scientific research,operation management, food nutrition and quality control and monitoring, food engineering design, etc., in the food science and engineering related area.
Main courses: biochemistry, microbiology, food chemistry, food engineering principals, food technology, fermentation technology, food nutrition, food analysis, food safety and hygiene, food machinery and equipment, function food, food toxicology, food additive, food product design and development, etc.
The graduate students are suitable to work in the enterprises, schools or institute related with food scienceand engineering subject. Job options could be food science research, food technique design and management, food inspection and quarantine, etc.
This subject is allowed to confer master and doctor degree, associated with post-doctoral research.
