The School of Environment and Energy Engineering (SEE) is a teaching department of AnHui JianZhu University, which mainly focuses on environment, energy and related majors. In 1984, Water Supply and Drainage Engineering was set up in the Urban Construction Department. In 1992, Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning Engineering was set up. In 1996, the department of Environmental Engineering and Electronics was established due to the department adjustment. In 1999, Building Environment and Equipment Engineering was set up. In 2000, Environmental Engineering was set up. In 2001, Environmental Engineering was established. In 2002, Resources, Environment and Urban-rural Planning Management was set up. In August 2006, the school of Environmental Engineering was established on the basis of the department of Environmental Engineering, and was granted the right to confer the master's degree in Municipal Engineering. In 2008, GIS Major was set up. On March 4, 2009, the department of Environmental Engineering was renamed the school of Environment and Energy Engineering. In 2014, it was granted the right to confer the master's degree of Environment Engineering. In 2014, Ecological Environment Engineering was set up. In 2017, the school was granted the right to confer the master's degree in Environmental Science and Engineering.
Currently, there are 105 teachers on the job, including 18 teachers with high professional title (15 of whom are professors) and 26 teachers with vice-high professional title (18 of whom are associate professors), one doctoral supervisor, 37 master supervisors, 60 people with doctor's degree, 2 academic and technical leaders and 1 backup candidate in Anhui province; 2 outstanding talents of universities in anhui province; 2 masters of architectural survey and design in Anhui province; 1 person enjoying the State Council Allowance and the special provincial government allowance, one national outstanding teacher. There are 5 distinguished professors and part-time professors, including 1 academician.
The school focuses on the idea of improving Party Construction through the development of the school and promoting its development through improving Party Construction, and brings into full play the Exemplary Vanguard Role of the Party members and the political core role of Party organizations. The school party committee now has 11 grassroots Party branches. In recent years, the school's Party committee has been awarded the advanced grassroots Party organization by Anhui Provincial Party Committee and Anhui Provincial Education Committee. It also has been recommended to the Education Department of Anhui province as a demonstration site for the construction of a learning-oriented Party.
The school currently has 4 teaching departments: Municipal Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Building Environment and Thermal Engineering and the Department of Resource Science. We have 6 undergraduate majors: Water Supply and Drainage Science and Engineering, Building Environment and Energy Application Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Ecological Engineering, Geographic Information Science, Energy and Power Engineering; 1 first-level discipline master's degree authorization unit: Environmental Science and Engineering; 2 academic master's degree: Municipal Engineering and Heating, Gas Supply, Ventilation and Air-conditioning Engineering; 2 professional master's degrees: Architecture and Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering. Municipal Engineering and Environmental Engineering were authorized as the provincial-level key subjects in 2008 and 2012, respectively.
The age structure, educational structure, and professional title structure of the teaching staff have gradually become more reasonable, and the professional construction has achieved remarkable results. The conditions for professional education meet the teaching requirements, we have already built 1 National Teaching and Experimental Demonstration Center: 13 laboratories with a total area of about 6,000 m2, and a total value of about 45 million yuan for experimental instruments and equipment; 1 National Virtual Simulation Teaching Project, 1 Provincial Virtual Simulation Teaching Center. In addition to meeting basic teaching needs, the on-campus laboratory could also provide a place for students' innovative activities. Nearly 50 off-campus practice bases have been established. In 2007, 2012, and 2017, the major of Water Supply and Drainage Science and Engineering passed the professional education evaluation and certification of the Ministry of Construction for 3 consecutive times. In 2009, 2014, and 2019, the major of the Building Environment and Equipment Engineering passed the professional education evaluation of the Ministry of Construction for 3 consecutive times. In 2019, the majors of Water Supply and Drainage Science and Engineering, and Building Environment and Equipment Engineering were approved as the first batch of national first-class undergraduate professional construction sites.
School of Environment and Energy Engineering owns:
1. Research Plat form: 4 provincial scientific research platforms (Key Laboratory of Environmental Pollution Control and Waste Resource Utilization of Anhui Province, Anhui Key Laboratory of Water Pollution Control and Wastewater Resource, Anhui Advanced Technology Research Institute of Green Building, Anhui Engineering and Technology Research Center of Smart City); 1 university-level key laboratory (Laboratory of indoor thermal and humid environment); 1 institute (Institute of geographic information and remote sensing).
2. Academic conduction ：the supporting unit of Township Water Affairs Branch of China Town Water Supply and Drainage Association , Anhui Sponge City Construction Association and Anhui City Appearance and Environmental Sanitation Association. Academic teams with stable research directions in many disciplines of Municipal works, Heating/gas/ventilation and air-conditioning projects, Environmental Engineering, Cartography and Geographic Information System.
3. Communication and Cooperation：participating in a number of national Seventh Five-Year to Thirteenth Five-Year key projects. More than 50 provincial and ministerial projects have been taken In the past 5 years, including 18 major projects, as for the National Natural Science Foundation of China, water projects of the National “11th Five-Year” and “12th Five-Year” Plan, national support plans, and key R&D plans of ”13th Five-Year” of the Ministry of Science and Technology.
The SEEE actively develops external contacts and cooperation, carries out scientific research and foreign services, especially in close combination with professional fields of urban construction management, smart city construction, green building development, sponge city and urban black and odorous water body construction, and low-carbon ecological urban. The SEEE has undertaken more than 200 horizontal research projects, published more than 500 academic papers, and obtained more than 100 national invention patents and scientific research achievements and awards.
The student management work is scientific and standard with distinct characteristics. SEEE actively promotes the ideological and political work of college students, which have been into the classroom, into the dormitory, into the network, the ideological and moral quality of students has been improved. The SEEE actively promotes the ideological and political work of students, which have been into classrooms, dormitories, and the network, and the ideological and moral quality of students has been improved.
Students' campus cultural activities are rich and colorful. In particular, student associations such as the Environmental Protection Association and Shenyuan Literature and Art Association have carried out various activities in combination with the characteristics of the disciplines and specialty of our college. In overall 17 sport Games, the SEEE student team won the championship 15 times.
The student team has won first and second prizes many times in the Chinese University of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Industry Science and Technology Competition and “the National GIS Software Development Competition”. Especially in Student Design of the 7th CAR-ASHRAE Competition, our students won first prize and went to Florida (US) as a representative of Chinese students, to participate in the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers.
