It is an active exploration to implement the spirit of the 10th Party Congress of LZU and develop new growth points of disciplines to foster the overall level of disciplines and promote high-quality development by expanding engineering courses on the broad basis of science. It is also an inner demand of LZU to cultivate talents on the basis of high morality. Such a big decision was made after scientific and careful arguments on condition that teachers and students have such needs as founded subjects, guaranteed teaching staff, and supported platforms.
The establishment of the SME is an important move of LZU to adhere to the “four services” and “four orientations” to serve the national strategy and economic and social development. It aims to further integrate discipline resources, accelerate the development of materials science, open up the transformation channel of scientific and technological achievements so as to explore a new mode of industry-university-research cooperation and form a new growth point of engineering science in the future. As a result, it will better serve the national strategy and inject new vitality to “Double First-Class” construction of LZU.
