To fit the strategic adjustment of the national economic structure, meet the demand of human resources market and to enhance international competitiveness, QUST lays great emphasis on the development of disciplines of hi-technology and applied science to further optimize the structure and to establish a well balanced system of disciplines. In particular, QUST strongly foster those disciplines with good reputation and potentials to be the leading force of the school development. So far, there are 2 state level disciplines (Chemical Engineering and Technology, and Polymer Material and Engineering), 6 provincial level disciplines (Chemical Engineering and Technology, Applied Chemistry, Polymer Material and Engineering, Process Engineering and Control, Material Physics and Mechanical Engineering and Automation) and 13 school level disciplines.
Now there are 59 undergraduate disciplines in fields such as Science, Liberal Arts, Economy, Management, Medical Science and Law. The three newly approved disciplines set up to meet the developing demands of society and economy are bound to be promising and full of potentials.
