Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) is a public university founded in the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone of China.
SUSTech offers an unparalleled learning and research experience at the scientific and technological frontiers.
SUSTech offers unprecedented opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to work alongside the faculty to explore and tackle both fundamental and practical problems.
The Global Engagement Office (GEO) is responsible for forming and implementing a coherent strategy to promote the University’s international development and global profile.
The undergraduate admission of SUSTech adopts comprehensive evaluation enrollment mode based on national college entrance examination.The graduate admission of SUSTech currently adopts joint training mode.
The main duties of SUSTCEF is to accept the donations from the domestic and foreign associations, enterprises, trading companies and individuals, and establish the funding projects depending on the demands of the university and the wishes of the donors.
Recently, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of China (MEE) officially permitted SUSTech to build a water pollution prevention and control laboratory. The laboratory will focus on surface and underground water in state-protected drainage basins, and it is the first national-level laboratory at SUSTech.
Laboratory leader and Dean of School of Environmental Science and Engineering Zheng Chunmiao will undertake a three-stage drainage-basin-based research project, aimed at water pollution prevention technology and the need of related industry development:
The laboratory strives to become a world-class research platform, standardized testing center, and future national key laboratory, and contribute to the improvement of water environment and water pollution prevention/control technologies in China.
Since its establishment in May 2015, the School of Environmental Science and Engineering has been prioritizing its research on hydrology and water resources. They have particularly focused on a variety of environmental matters such as environmental biogeochemistry, water pollution and treatment, soil and groundwater remediation, solid waste disposal and utilization, atmospheric chemistry and pollution control, ecological system assessment, environmental remote sensing, and global environmental change.The School is also equipped with high-level faculty and researchers who have undertaken over 80 research projects with funding of over 30 million USD, published more than 170 SCI academic papers, released eight monographs, and established multiple municipal and provincial laboratories.
