    Current location: Home >> Schools >> School of Energy and Safety

    The School of Energy and Safety was established in 1949 and originated from the Department of Coal Mining, which is one of the most historic departments in Anhui University of Science and Technology. The School is composed of two departments, Mining Engineering and Safety Engineering. It has fourundergraduate programs, namely, Mining Engineering, Safety Engineering, Traffic Engineering, and Fire engineering, two first-level disciplinesauthorized to offerdoctoral degrees,Mineral Engineering, and Safety Science and Engineering, and two post-doctoral research centers.

    Among the four undergraduate programs, Mining Engineering and Safety Engineering have acquired the China Engineering Education Accreditation. Besides, it has been selected as program forEducating and Training Outstanding Engineers Plan of Ministry of Education, the pilot program of Undergraduate Comprehensive Reform of Local Colleges and Universities, and the State-level Specialty Construction Program. Mineral Engineering is the provincial A-grade keydiscipline, while the Mining Engineering and Safety Engineering are in the B-grade key disciplines. In the fourth round of nationaluniversity discipline rankings, Safety Science and Engineering, and Mining Engineering are ranked B, and Safety Science and Engineering have won the A-category fund support for the domestic top discipline support program.

    The School has eight provincial and ministerial level research platforms, including Key Laboratory for the Safe and Efficient Mining, Science and Technology Research and Development Platform for Coal Mine Deep-well, Provincial Key Laboratory of Deep Mining Responsiveness and Disaster Prevention and Control, etc. Besides, there is one State-level Talent Training Mode Trial Zone, namely, the innovative trial zone for mining compound talents training mode; one state-level outstanding course, Ventilation Safety Science; and one state-level teaching team of Mining Engineering. The Master of Mining Engineering has been honored the title of “National Characteristic Engineering Field”.

    Currently, the total number of faculty and staff is approximately 70, including 21doctoral supervisors, 1 Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 1 member of the Recruitment Program of Global Experts, 1 member of the Disciplinary Evaluation Group of the Ministry of Education, 2 candidates for New Century Talents Project,2 elected in New Century Talent Supporting Project by the Ministry of Education, 3 members Guest Professors of Wanjiang Scholars Program, 7 members and 2 candidates of Academic and Technical Leaders of Anhui Province, 2 “Teaching Masters” of Anhui Province, 2 “Teaching New Stars”, 1 Visiting Professor of AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland, 7 enjoying government special allowance. The number of teacher with doctoral degree accounts for 86% of that of the full-time teachers, while the number of teacher with senior professional title accounts for 73%. What’s more, more than 10 people has won state and provincial level honors, such as National Outstanding Teachers, Outstanding Teachers of Anhui Province, Advanced Workers of Anhui Province, Anhui Youth “May 4th” Medal, Outstanding Moral Education Workers of Anhui Province, Anhui Youth Science and Technology Awards, and so on.

    In recent years, the School has won 3 National Science and Technology Progress Awards and more than 50 provincial and ministerial level science and technology progress awards. Among them, the program “Key Technologies and Application of Unstable Safety Control of Soft Surrounding Rocks in Coal Mine Deep Mine Roadways in Eastern China”, Anhui University of Science and Technology beingthe first author affiliation, won the second prize of theNational Science and Technology Progress Award. Besides, the School has undertaken more than 70 National Key Basic Research Program of China (973 Program), National Basic Research Programs and National Natural Science Foundation Programs, 2 Sino-Polish Governmental Science and Technology Collaboration Programs, and more than 100 provincial/ministerial-level programs. Up to now, the school has hosted 5 international conferences, such as the International Mining Forum and the “36th International Conference on Ground Control in Mining.

    In the past three years, students of the School have won over 30 awards in state-level contests, including, six awards in the "Challenge Cup" National College Students Extracurricular Science and Technology Contest, four Gold and Silver Awards in Chinese College Entrepreneurial Contest, the National Youth Science and Technology Innovation Contest, National College Energy-saving and Emission Reduction Contest, etc.; and more than 100 honors in industries/provincial level contests, such as National College Mining Engineering and Safety Engineering Practical WorksContest, and Anhui Province College Entrepreneurship Contest. The School’s employment rate is above 95%. Nearly 18% of the graduates enter into key universities such as Tsinghua University, China University of Science and Technology, and Nanjing University to further their study, while a great number of the rest are employed in state-owned enterprises such as China Railway Tunnel Group, China First Metallurgical Group, and The Second Harbor Engineering Company.
