一级学科： 安全科学与工程 学分要求： 42
First-grade Discipline: Safety Scienceand Engineering Credit Setting: 42
The major of safety engineering was set up in QingdaoUniversity of Science and Technology (QUST) in 2002, which is the key subjectof QUST. The College of Environment and Safety Engineering was established in2006 on the base of the resources from the College of Chemistry and MolecularEngineering, the College of Chemical Engineering and the College of Materials Science and Engineering. The grant authority of master degree in safety technologyand engineering for grade II science division was achieved in 2006. The grantauthority of master degree in engineering field was achieved in 2010.Furthermore, the grant authority of master degree in safety science andengineering for grade I science division was achieved in 2011. At the sametime, the graduate students can also further their study for doctor degree inchemical safety or material safety fields. At present, the department of safetyscience and engineering includes the teaching group of safety engineering andtwo research centers (chemical process safety center and modern safetymanagement and technology development center). The discipline has a Central andLocal Government Joint Development Project “Special Laboratory for ChemicalSafety and Environment”, a Central Government Supporting Local University BuiltProject “Laboratory for Chemical Process Safety and Pollution Control” and a Shandong University Key Discipline Project “Teaching Experimental Center for Environmentand Safety”. There are more than 20 teachers including 2 Ph.D. supervisors, 6professors, 8 associate professors. Among them, 18 teachers have doctor degree.The number of undergraduates and post-graduates studying now is 360 and 30respectively. Most of the post-graduates have joined government safetysupervision department, various enterprises, companies of safety evaluation, designinginstitutes, universities or colleges and other organizations to conduct thevarious work about safety such as engineering, management, teaching, studyingand technology service. Additionally, some post-graduates pursue doctor degreeafter graduation to polish their ability in the major of safety.
In recent years, under the fiscal support from the centraland local governments, the enhancement of facilities and teaching team guaranteesthe high-level teaching of all courses. Teachers are always encouraged toconduct research work presenting an important base for research. Presently, themain research fields include fire dynamics evolution and accidents simulation,chemical process safety, chemical safety materials, safety risk management.
The intersection between safety and other similar science division,especially the chemical engineering, chemistry and materials, was emphasized inthe course of teaching and studying. The development for many years results inthe obvious enhancement in facilities, teaching team and research ability,which presents an important base for the training of high-level talent insafety serving for the safety protection in Shandong province or all over thecountry. In recent 5 years, the teachers majored in safety completed 19 researchprojects of national grade and 40 research projects of provincial orministerial grade. More than 260 papers were published in important sciencejournals. Among them, 51 papers were indexed by SCI or EI, 14 provincial andministerial level awards were received and 4 national patents of invention weregranted authorization. Additionally, a large variety of industrial projects tosolve safety problems in industries were completed successfully.
二、培养目标( Objectives of Training)
To master the basic principlesof Marxism and Mao Zedong Thought, to profoundly understand Deng XiaopingTheory, to adhere to the Four Cardinal Principles and patriotism, to observethe disciplines and obey the laws, to persistently uphold the truth and toobserve the rigorous scientific approach and excellent professional ethic.
To have a strong safetyconsciousness, to promote all round development of moral, intellectual andphysical education and to grow into specialists of safety that will contributeto the safety technology development of our country in the new century.
To possess solid fundamentalknowledge and have the skills and capacity to solve safety issues, tounderstand and be familiar with the professional and academic progress ofenvironment development and to have the capabilities of independent academicresearch in safety and achievements conversion.
To master a foreign language,to have a good capability of domestic and international academic exchange andto apply the foreign language in reading professional books, consultingliterature and writing papers.
三、学制及学习年限（Educational System and Length of Schooling）
Three-year educational systemis adopted and the length of schooling should not be beyond 4 years. Thegeneral time length for courses is 1~3 terms and at least 1 year should bespent on the research work of thesis. The credit system is adopted in studyingthe postgraduate courses. The postgraduates must complete the courses of ≥42 creditsincluding the degree courses of 19 credits and the research section of 13 credits.
The Research Orientation and characteristic
Fire Dynamics Evolution and Accidents Simulation
This orientation is one of the important research fields in safety science and engineering. The main advantages and characteristics are to explore the process and mechanisms of chemical fire dynamics and simulation, to model the chemical accidents, to understand the chemical thermal hazard and assessment.
Chemical Process Safety
The main research fields are concentrated on the inherent safety theory and application of chemical process, safety technology of chemical equipment, process faults diagnosis based on the abnormal states mechanism models.
Chemical Safety Materials
The focus of this research field is to study the chemical equipment corrosion mechanisms and protection, thermal controlled safety coating materials and the development of flame retarded materials.
Safety Risk Management
The characteristics of this research field are typical in studying the chemical resource safety risk management, chemical safety risk assessment and control, chemical safety standards.
（Course Setting of MasterDisciplines for Safety Science and Engineering ）
The master courses include degreecourses and non-degree courses. Prior to medium-term assessment, each studentshould complete all the courses in his (her) educating plan and gain therequired credits.
The main teaching mean is lecturing in class. Additionally, topicreports by the teachers are encouraged in teaching. The assessment of course isconducted by exam and check. Generally, written exam with closed paper shouldbe used in degree courses, whereas written exam with closed or opened paper andother assessment means can be used for non-degree courses.
Considered as the key mean to guaranteethe quality of post-graduates, research work is the required section for mastereducation,. The topic selection should exhibit the characteristics of advancein environmental science and engineering and it is better to take the researchtask of the tutor into account. Furthermore, the free topic selection afterreviewing literature is also encouraged under the help of the tutor. The dissertationwork includes several steps such as thesis proposal, medium-term assessment andthesis oral defense. Each step is arranged with an explicit schedule. Duringthe course of research work, the students need to write paper for publicationto meet the requirements of the university.
Prior to thesis oral defense, the thesis must be subjected to an assessmentmade by two experts majoring in safety science and engineering, and at leastone of the two experts comes from outside of the university. Thesis defense committeecomposed of the experts hosts the proceedings. Approvedby the university appraisal committee, the master degree will be conferred on thosestudents who pass the thesis oral defense.
