South China University of Technology

South China University of Technology (SCUT) is one of China's key universities operating under the direct leadership of the State Ministry of Education. The university is situated in Guangzhou, a southern metropolitan in China, next to Hongkong and Macau. The university has two campuses: The Wushan Campus and Guangzhou Higher Education Mega Center Campus. Since 1952 SCUT has developed into a university that specialize in engineering and combine with economic, management, law, literature and medicine (biomadicine). Besides, SCUT is cooperating with more than 50 international universities.

School of Bioscience and Bioengineering was founded in 2004, located in the scenic south campus of South China University of Technology (SCUT),covering 10000 square meters. The School owns individual teaching, laboratory building and complete facilities, which create a good environment and development space for discipline construction. With the rapid development in recent years, our School has formed a sound high-level personnel training system. Nowadays, there are 1078 full-time students in the School, including 619 undergraduates, 353 graduates and 106 PhDs. Our school has a total of 68 staff members of which 95% of the faculty has PhD degree,. There are 14 professors, 21 associate professors, as well as 1 distinguished professor of 1000plan. Our School presently has 3 undergraduate programs including Bioengineering, Biotechnology, Biopharmaceutical. Our school also offers 6 Master programs as follows, Fermentation Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, Microbiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Biology Pharmaceuticals. In addition, our school has 6 master degree authorizations for Fermentation Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, Microbiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Biopharmaceuticals as well as 7doctor degree authorization for Fermentation Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, Microbiology, Biomedical Engineering, Physiology, Genetics, Biochemistry and   Molecular Biology. In 2007, a first class discipline The Light Industry Technology and Engineering was formed by our school’s Fermentation along with Sugar Engineering as well as Pulp and Paper Engineering which became a national-level key discipline. In 4th 2010, it gained the authority to launch PhD program of first class discipline. According to the discipline background and the need of further development, we will focus on 4 second-class disciplines: Microbiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Physiology and Biophysics as well as Medical Biology. In addition, our school has Post-doctoral mobile station for The Light Industry Technology and Engineering.

Our school has undertaken many major scientific projects, such as national 973 project or national 863 project, and a lot of national or provincial fund projects. We have won 1 national prize for progress in science and technology and 5 provincial prizes. Now we concentrate on the researches of Bioinformatics and Microbial Functional Genomics, Microbial Resources and Regulation of Microbial Metabolism, Molecular Transformation and Enzyme Engineering, Fermentation Engineering and  Fermentation Equipment, Bio-catalytic Processing Engineering, Bioinformatics, Biomechanics, Medical Information and Equipment, and Biomedicine etc.

By virtue of the construction of high-level university and south campus, our School has invested more than 6 million in building a first-class undergraduate teaching laboratory, and it has become the demonstration center of experimental teaching in Guangdong province.

In addition, 30 million has been invested in constructing scientific research platform. The most iconic achievement during the construction is the acquirement of Provincial Key Laboratory in Fermentation and Enzyme engineering, and Key Laboratory in Industrial Biotechnology of Guangdong Educational Department.

In order to enhance the connection of academia and industry, we has invited experts from “Thousand Talents Program” who are creative and desire to realize their academic inventions to join the “pre-incubtor” platform we have created.
