A Brief Introduction of School of Civil Engineering


The School of Civil Engineering at Shandong Jianzhu University was founded in 1958, which primarily was the Department of Building Engineering at Shandong University of Architecture and Engineering. The School focuses its efforts on two bachelor disciplines, namely: civil engineering and urban underground space engineering, and a sub-discipline of civil engineering for internationally cooperative program. As of December 2021, the School has 149 employees, including 127 faculty members. The School currently has 2035 undergraduate students and 410 graduate students. It accepts 8 civil engineering classes, 2 urban underground space engineering classes and 3 classes of internationally cooperative program per year.

The major of civil engineering is a national characteristic speciality, one of the first batch of national first-class professional construction sites, one of the first batch of pilot programs for comprehensive reform of undergraduate majors in the national "undergraduate teaching engineering project" for local universities, the Department of Education "Excellent Engineer Education and Training Program" major, "Provincial Key Major of Featured University for Application-oriented Talent Training of Shandong Province", and "High-level Key Applied Major of Shandong Province". Shandong Jianzhu University-Shandong Zhongcheng Real Estate Co., Ltd. Engineering Practice Education Center was successfully approved as an off-campus practice education base for undergraduates of local universities under the Ministry of Education. The courses of "Principles of Concrete Structures", "Principles of Steel Structures", "Structural Mechanics", "Civil Engineering Construction" and "Basic Engineering Design" are first-class courses in Shandong Province. The teaching and research achievements were awarded the first and second prizes of Shandong Provincial Higher Education Teaching Achievement Award. The School has one provincial-level joint training base for postgraduates. The major of civil engineering passed the evaluation of the National Civil Engineering Education Evaluation Committee with excellent results in 2003, 2008 and 2013. The major also was awarded the international engineering certificate in 2019, demonstrating that the major is at a high level with international advance. In the fourth round of discipline assessment, civil engineering discipline in the School was classified at the level of B-.








Engineering Education Certificates with Excellent Results



Provincial Teaching Achievements


The School has a first-class master degree program in civil engineering, being capable to award master degree at the major of civil and hydraulic engineering. In 2012, the doctorate program regarding to core supporting discipline of "Green Building Technology and Theory" was founded. Civil engineering discipline was honored as "Shandong Province First-class Discipline". Key Laboratory of Building Structural Retrofitting and Underground Space Engineering (Shandong Jianzhu University), Ministry of Education was successfully applied. It has the Shandong Province Key Laboratory of Building Structure Appraisal, Strengthening and Renovation, Shandong Province Prefabricated Construction Engineering Laboratory, and Shandong Co-Innovation Center for Disaster Prevention and Mitigation of Civil Structures, Shandong Province Civil Structure Diagnosis and Disaster Prevention Engineering Technology Research Center, Shandong Province Green Building Steel Structure Engineering Technology Research Center, the first batch of institutes of modern industry in Shandong Province, i.e., the modern industry of smart construction,Engineering Structure and Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Shandong Province University Key Laboratory and Shandong Province Prefabricated Building Industry Base (Shandong Construction University). The Civil Engineering Experimental Teaching Center was prompted as a national civil engineering experimental teaching center for practical demonstrations. Two national virtual simulation experimental teaching centers containing "Construction Engineering and Equipment" and "Construction Engineering Management" were successfully applied based on achievements of the center. In 2018, the International Research Center for the Safety and Reliability of Major Infrastructures was established.
