Key Disciplines 

Situated in Shanghai, East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST), first named as East China Institute of Chemical Technology, was founded in 1952. It was the first single-subject chemical institute in China with the mergence of the chemical departments from Jiaotong University, Aurora University, Utopia University, Soochow University and Jiangnan University during a nation-wide restructuring of the country's higher education resource in the early 1950's. As one of the universities that were initially granted the permission to admit postgraduates in 1956, ECUST was promoted as a national key university under the direct administration of the Ministry of Education in 1960. In recognition of its growth, the National Ministry of Education approved the renaming of the University as the East China University of Science and Technology in 1993.

In June 1996, ECUST was selected as one of the top 100 universities in China for the national "211 Project". ECUST has been under the joint construction and administration of Shanghai Government and the State Ministry of Education since October 1997. In June 2000, the graduate school of ECUST was approved by the Ministry of Education of China and then became one of the first twenty-two universities under the Self-admission Reform Program in China. With its subsequent development and construction, the University gradually expanded into a multi-disciplinary national key university including science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, law, business, administration and humanities. Shen Weiguo is the present Party Secretary of the CCP in ECUST; Qian Xuhong the President, and Cheng Siwei the Honorable President is the vice-chairman of the Standing Committee of the NPC and also a well known economist. 

The university has 14 Academic Schools at present, namely School of Chemical Engineering, School of Bioengineering, School of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, School of Pharmacy, School of Materials Science and Engineering, School of Information Science and Engineering, School of Mechanical and Power Engineering, School of Resource and Environmental Engineering, School of Science, School of Business, School of Social & Public Administration, School of Art, Design and Media, School of Foreign Languages and School of Law. In addition, it has Sino-German College of Technology, College of Distance Education, College of Continuing Education, College of International Education, Department of Excellence in Science and Engineering, School of Humanities and Department of Physical Education.
