The College of Chemical Engineering and Materials has gone through the development history of the Department of Chemistry, the School of Science, the School of Mathematics, Physics and Chemical Engineering, and now has three undergraduate majors, namely, Chemical Engineering and Technology (the first-class major in Jiangsu Province, the construction site of Jiangsu Province's industry education integration brand specialty), Composite Materials and Engineering, and Resource Recycling Science and Engineering, which involve the basic chemistry teaching department, the Department of Chemical Engineering, the Department of Applied Chemistry, the Department of Resource Environment, the Department of Composite Materials, the central laboratory Resources and Environment Research Institute, College of Carbon Fiber New Materials Industry, Jiangsu High Value Patent Center, Jiangsu Engineering Technology Center and other teaching and research institutions.

After years of internal training and external introduction, the structure of educational background, academic background, professional title and age of the faculty of the College of Chemical Engineering and Materials has been greatly improved. Among the 59 teaching staff, there are 49 full-time teachers, including 46 with doctoral degrees, accounting for nearly 94%. Many people were awarded the titles of experts enjoying special allowance by the State Council, provincial 333 talents, provincial six peaks talents, and provincial blue project talents and teams. In addition, 34 industry professors were employed in the process of integration of industry and education, forming a team of full-time and part-time teachers who devote themselves to teaching, are keen on innovation, and are united and diligent.

The College of Chemical Engineering and Materials attaches great importance to discipline construction and scientific and technological innovation, and the discipline of Materials and Chemical Engineering (code 0856) has been listed as the key discipline for master's degree construction. Adhering to the local and application-oriented school running idea, the college has established a good cooperative relationship with many enterprises in Changzhou City and the Yangtze River Delta region, formed a number of characteristic teams for the deep processing of rare and precious metals, the treatment and disposal of electronic waste, high-end fine chemicals, etc. By 2022, the paid in funds for scientific research will reach 26 million yuan, laying a solid team foundation for the one institute, one town, one hundred regiments and one hundred enterprises action and the integration of industry and education. The college has now become the vice chairman unit of the China Renewable Resources Industry Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance and the location and operation unit of the Yangtze River Delta Resources and Environment Research Institute.

The developing college needs an open mind and a down-to-earth style of study. Open and inclusive, collaborative innovation has become the school philosophy of the School of Chemical Engineering and Materials and the teaching and research guide for all teachers. The college will take the initiative to meet the development needs of many industries in Changzhou and the Yangtze River Delta region, such as chemical industry, new materials, resources and environment. It will take an active role in personnel training, scientific and technological innovation, social services, etc., and strive to build the college into a talent training base and scientific and technological innovation source with distinctive characteristics, domestic status, and international influence in the field of chemical industry and materials, To make due contributions to the construction of a distinctive and high-level application-oriented local university.
