Introduction of the Experiment Center of the College of Material Engineering
The experiment center of the College of Material Engineering was established in 2009, and became the experiment and teaching center of Jiangsu Province colleges and universities upon approval in 2013. The center is equipped with a practical teaching team with “double capabilities” and “double qualifications”, thus enjoying rich experience in laboratory management, strong capability in experiment, teaching and scientific research and proper structure. At present the experiment center has 9 teaching staff, including 8 persons with master’s degree, 1 with bachelor’s degree, 1 with senior professional title and 5 with intermediate professional title.
There are 29 specialized laboratories and 1 computer laboratory in the experiment center, covering an area of 5,000 m2. The center has over 1,000 sets of instruments and equipment with a total value more than RMB 40 million, including 50-plus sets of instruments and equipment over RMB 100,000. The experiment center undertakes the practice and teaching tasks of nearly 30 courses in 9 majors of the university, and also provides large-scale high-level experiment conditions for students’ experiment skill training, experiment research and innovation at the same time, which provides a good practice platform for scientific research and industry-university-research cooperation and plays a positive role in talent development and social service.
