In September 2014, China Pharmaceutical University optimized the layout of disciplines and integrated the engineering disciplines from the School of Pharmacy, the School of Life Science and Technology and the School of Science, establishing the School of Engineering. It is aiming to cultivate new discipline growth points and core competitiveness in the construction of engineering development platform, promoting interdisciplinary integration, breeding new research directions and improving the transformation of scientific research achievements.

School of Engineering includes seven subdivisions: Department of Pharmaceutical Engineering, Department of Pharmaceutical Equipment and Electronic Instrumentation, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Department of Food Quality and Safety, Department of Environmental Science, Experiment Teaching Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering, Training Center of GMP. Currently, School of Engineering has 61 staff members, in which 45 persons are full-time teachers, and 23 teachers have the senior professional titles, and 17 teachers are doctoral or master tutors. Most of the teachers enjoy a high reputation both at home and abroad based on the great achievements on teaching and academic research. They are all deeply praised by students. School of Engineering hosts more than 1244 full-time students, in which about 166 are postgraduates, and 1078 are bachelor’s or associate degree candidates.

School of Engineering now provides three undergraduate majors including Pharmaceutical engineering, Food quality and safety and Environmental science, in which Pharmaceutical Engineering is awarded with National Comprehensive Reform Pilot Major, the first batch of brand building major and the key construction major of "13th Five-Year Plan" in Jiangsu. The Environmental science now is listed as the key construction discipline of "13th Five-Year Plan" in Jiangsu. There are Pharmacy (Pharmaceutical Engineering) sub-discipline for master and doctor degree authorization, Biomedical Engineering discipline for master degree authorization, and Pharmaceutical Engineering discipline for professional master degree authorization in School of Engineering.

The training center in our school is complied with the new GMP standard with a total investment of more than 38 million RMB. It is a provincial-level integrated training center.Seven workshops (production lines) run in the center including solid preparations, injections, lyophilized powder, biopharmaceuticals, Chinese herbs extraction, pharmaceutical synthesis and public works. It covers a total construction area of 4800 m2 including 3600 m2 of decontaminated area. The GMP training center is a practice teaching and technology optimization platform with a set of large-scale, systematic and information technology.

School of Engineering have advanced equipment and modern experiment conditions including biological testing platform, chemical synthesis experiment platform, pharmaceutical engineering experiment center, molecular biology experiment center, microbial experiment center, separation and purification technology experiment center, chromatographic instrument experiment center and so on, providing great support for our teaching and research.

Our development positioning is aimed at a high-level school based on advanced engineering technology, to serve for the development of medicine, to promote the interdisciplinary integration, and to highlight the distinctive pharmaceutical environment. We will take the advantages of the pharmacy disciplines, to be pioneering and innovative. Based on all the aspects of drug development, we will contribute our best into the construction of "Double First-Class" university, focusing on the discipline connotation and platform construction, personnel training and teaching design, innovative research atmosphere and direction, integration of teachers and talent introduction and so on.
