College of Earth Sciences & Engineering

On the basis of the former petroleum geology teaching section (established in 1959), the college developed into the present size and magnitude in the year 2006. Now the college encompasses 2 departments (Department of Petroleum Geology and Department of Applied Geophysics), 4 teaching sections and 5 institutes. It also has 1 provincial key lab and 1 key lab of the school. Now it offers 3 undergraduate programs in Resources Prospecting Engineering, Prospecting Techniques & Engineering, Geological Engineering and 1 program in science. It also provides 6 Master’s programs in Mineral Resource Prospecting and Exploration, Unconventional Oil & Gas Geology and Exploration, Oil & Gas Development Geology, Geo-detection and Information Technology, Geological Engineering and Mineralogy & Petrology & Mineral Deposit Geology.

At present, there are 70 faculty members in the college, including 24 professors and associate professors. 62% of the teaching staff have their Ph.D. degrees, one enjoys the State Council Allowance, and a lot more were admitted in various provincial and national Talent Programs. Besides, the college also has an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Academy of Engineering as its Visiting Scholar.
