In 2006, the College of Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE) of Shenzhen University was established, whose predecessor was the Department of Materials Science and Engineering founded in 1998. The Materials Science and Engineering taught in the College is a key discipline of Guangdong Province. The students of CMSE can choose between two undergraduate majors, ‘Materials Science and Engineering’ and ‘Polymer Materials and Engineering’, both of which have been approved as national first-class undergraduate majors and ‘Polymer Materials and Engineering’ have been certified as engineering education majors in June 2023. CMSE is qualified to grant an academic master’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering as well as a professional master’s degree in Materials and Chemicals. Also, CMSE co-cultivates PhD-students with universities in Hong Kong and Macao. In July 2022, the discipline of Materials Science entered the ESI global top 1‰, which is the second ESI global top 1‰ discipline of Shenzhen University and it was ranked 65th in ESI worldwide and 32nd in China in January 2024. In 2022, it was ranked 40th in the world (18th in China) in the ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects. In 2023, it rose to 25th in the world (14th in China). Since 2020, the Times Higher Education China subject rating of it is A.

Currently, 106 staff work in CMSE, including 84 full-time faculty, including 1 academician from Chinese Academy of Sciences, 1 academician from Canadian Academy of Engineering, 2 foreign academicians from Russia, 3 national talents (including 1 National Outstanding Youth Talent), 9 national young talents (including 7 Excellent Youth Talents), 5 Guangdong Outstanding Youth Talent, 1 Guangdong Special Support Program, 3 Pearl River Talents, 1 Young Talent Support Project, 23 Ph.D. supervisors, 3 Academician Workstations (AIE Research Center, Smart Water Research Center and State Key Laboratory of Fine Chemicals), 3 Shenzhen Peacock Teams (Chuluo Yang, Jingli Luo and Zhenbo Wang). At present, 603 undergraduates, 480 postgraduates, 135 post-doctoral researchers and 46 full-time researchers are affiliated with CMSE. In 2023, over 60% of CMSE’s undergraduates continued their graduate study careers after graduation. Furthermore, all of the students graduated found employment successfully, among which 98% of the students were employed in the field that associated with materials science.

Currently, CMSE boasts Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of New Energy Materials Service Safety, Guangdong Functional Materials Interface Engineering Technology Research Center, Guangdong Experimental Teaching Demonstration Center, and five Shenzhen key laboratories (Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Special Functional Materials, Shenzhen Engineering Laboratory for Advanced Technology Ceramics, and Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Polymer Science and Technology, Shenzhen Key Laboratory of New Information Display and Storage Materials, Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Energy Electrocatalytic Materials), and is part of the State Key Laboratory of Radio Frequency Heterogeneous Integration of Shenzhen University. CMSE now possesses large-scale instruments and equipment value of nearly 225M with laboratory area close to 21,000 m². In the recent five years, CMSE has undertaken 535 scientific research projects in total, including 103 national projects, with combined funding of 350M . In the recent five years, more than 2,300 SCI academic papers, of which more than 1120 are in the Q1 category, including 3 publications in “Science (AAAS publication)” with CMSE as leading institution.  

College of Materials Science and Engineering is based in Shenzhen, relying on the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, facing the international community, focusing on advanced functional materials, and carrying out research on new energy materials, polymer materials, optoelectronic materials, electronic information materials, and etc. The college aims to cultivate high-quality innovative and entrepreneurial talents and become a high-level scientific and technological innovation base in the field of new materials.
