Introduction for School of Civil Engineering at Zhengzhou University

Zhengzhou University (ZZU) was established on July 10, 2000 on the basis of the amalgamation of the three former individual universities, namely the former Zhengzhou University, Zhengzhou University of Technology and Henan Medical University. It is among the group admitted into Project 211, the sole university in Henan supported by the Midwest Universities Comprehensive Strength Promotion Project and co-sponsored by Henan Provincial Government and the Ministry of Education. Zhengzhou University has rich resources and facilities. It has altogether four campuses, i.e. the New Campus (No. 100 of Science Road, Zhengzhou City), the South Campus (No. 75 of North Daxue Road, Zhengzhou City), the North Campus (No. 97 of Wenhua Road, Zhengzhou City), and the Institute of Technology and the Medical School (No. 75 of North Daxue Road, Zhengzhou City). Of the overall area of 6,493 mu, the New Campus located in the New High-tech Zone takes up 4,845 mu, with a total construction area of 1.65 million square meters. With large school-running scale and qualified academic staffs, Zhengzhou University has at present over 56,000 full-time undergraduates, 15,000 full-time postgraduates and 1,600 international students coming from more than 60 countries and regions.

School of Civil Engineering at Zhengzhou University was established in Jan, 2001 on the basis of the amalgamation of School of Civil and Construction Engineering at former Zhengzhou University of Technology and Construction Engineering Department in School of Construction Engineering at former Zhengzhou University, and the Civil Engineering discipline is admitted into the provincial first-level key discipline. The school has four departments including Construction Engineering Department, Building Environment and Applied Energy Engineering Department, Transportation Engineering Department, and Urban Underground Space Engineering Department. School of Civil Engineering has the civil engineering postdoctoral research station, civil engineering doctorate program of the first-level discipline, civil engineering master’s degree program of the first-level discipline, management engineering master’s degree program of the first-level discipline, transportation engineering master’s degree program of the first-level discipline, and professional master’s degree in the construction and civil engineering areas. The school has 5 provincial key research institutions including fiber reinforced polymer construction material and structural engineering research center of Ministry of Education, disaster prevention and mitigation engineering and new construction material of Henan Provincial Universities and Colleges Key Principles Open Lab, fiber reinforced polymer material of Henan Provincial Engineering Lab, new urban construction technology of Henan Provincial Collaborative Innovation Center, and underground space engineering safety and quality control of Henan Provincial Engineering Lab. School of civil engineering has 7 university research institutions including disaster prevention and structural engineering research institution, new fiber reinforced polymer construction material research institution of Zhengzhou University, transportation and structural engineering technology research institution, urban construction research institute, structural engineering technology research center, geotechnical and underground engineering research institution, and bridge engineering research institution. The school has one general lab composited of structural engineering lab, construction material lab, engineering survey lab, building environment and equipment engineering lab, transportation engineering lab, and underground engineering lab.

School of Civil Engineering has 118 qualified academic staffs consisting of 23 professors, 27 associate professors, 33 lecturers, 8 doctoral supervisors, 63 master supervisors, and more than 67 academic staffs with the doctorate degree. The school has 2 staffs who has been granted for “State Council Expert for Special Allowance”, 1 staff becoming candidates of the “100-, 1000- and 10000-talent Plan”, 1 staff for “New Century Distinguished Talent Support Plan of Ministry of Education”, 2 staffs for “Henan Provincial Distinguished Experts”, 7 staffs for “Henan Provincial Academic and Technology Leaders”, 2 staffs awarded for “Henan Provincial Distinguished Talent Creative Fund”, 7 staffs awarded for “Henan Provincial Distinguished Young Fund”, 4 staffs for “Henan Provincial Young Technological Award”, and 1 staff for “Zhengzhou City Science and technological Special Contribution Award”. The School has 1800 full-time students composed of 24 postdoctoral researchers, 35 doctoral researchers, and 253 postgraduate students. School of Civil Engineering has put its effort on basic and applied research and development in national and local civil engineering areas, and has become the key high level technical personnel training base in the area of civil engineering.
