College of Water Conservancy and Civil Engineering of Shandong Agricultural University is a historic college. The predecessor of the College is Jinan Water Conservancy School of Shandong Province, which was established in Jinan in July 1955. The school was relocated to Tai'an in 1958, and merged with Shandong Agricultural University to establish the College of Water Conservancy and Civil Engineering in 1999. After more than 60 years of development, relying on the advantages and characteristics of Shandong Agricultural University, it has been a high-level engineering academy with great popularity and influence at home and abroad, formed a situation of prominent advantages in water conservancy engineering, distinctive features in agricultural water and soil engineering, and coordinated development of civil engineering.
There are 114 faculty members in this college, including 91 full-time teachers, 14 professors, 44 associate professors, and 41 holding PhDs currently. There are more than 2, 400 undergraduates and nearly 200 graduate students in this college now.
There are 7 undergraduate majors in this college, such as water conservancy and hydropower engineering, hydrology and water resources engineering, civil engineering, road bridge and river crossing engineering, water supply and drainage science and engineering, built environment and energy application engineering, architecture. Water conservancy and hydropower engineering and civil engineering are Specialty of Shandong Province. Water conservancy and hydropower engineering was approved as the major funded programs of Professional development support plan for the training of applied talents in ordinary undergraduate universities in Shandong Province and Construction Project of Famous Higher Education Institutions in Shandong Province. Water conservancy and hydropower engineering has passed the international engineering education professional certification for the second time. The civil engineering specialty (group) was approved by the Shandong Provincial Education Department to build a self-funded high-level application-oriented specialty (group). There are 1 provincial teaching team, 13 provincial excellent courses, and more than 40 teaching and scientific research practice education Bases.
The college has successively undertaken more than 100 projects such as the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National Key Research and Development Plan, the Shandong Natural Science Fund, and the Shandong Key Research and Development Plan. The college has completed more than 200 horizontal projects, and funded more than 30 million Yuan, and achieved good social and economic benefits.
The college has a doctoral degree in agricultural hydraulic engineering, the first-level master degree authorized in civil engineering and hydraulic engineering, and a professional degree authorized in the field of civil and hydraulic engineering. Water conservancy and hydropower engineering and structural engineering are key disciplines of Shandong Province, and civil engineering is a key cultivation discipline of Shandong Agricultural University during the 13th Five-Year Plan.
The College currently has Farmland Water Conservancy Engineering Technology Research Center of Shandong Province, Residential Engineering Technology Research Center of Shandong Province, Fabricated Construction Engineering Technology Research Center, Water Conservancy and Civil Engineering Experimental Center, and Geotechnical Engineering and Soil Physics Laboratory. The total value of the college's equipment is more than 50 million Yuan, and the laboratory area is more than 10, 000 square meters. There are 14 scientific research institutes in this college, such as Water Conservancy and Hydropower Engineering Structure and Materials Research Institute, Research Institute of Ecological Water Conservancy and Agricultural Water and Soil Engineering, Water Environment Protection and Pollution Control Research Institute, Geotechnical Engineering Research Institute, Engineering Hydraulics Research Institute, Hydrology and Water Resources Research Institute, Water Wisdom Research Institute, Institute of Ecological Water Resources, Civil Engineering Structure and Materials Research Institute, Residential Engineering Technology Research Center, Municipal Water Safety Research Institute, Intelligent Building Research Institute, Engineering Research Center for Green Building Materials, Research Center for Geotechnical Disaster Prevention and Control.
The college has established good exchanges and cooperation with universities and research institutes at home and abroad in terms of personnel training and scientific research, such as Purdue University, University of South Florida, Washington State University, University of Alberta, University of Western Australia, University of Lille and other foreign institutions, as well as Hehai University, China Agricultural University, Northwest A & F University, China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research , Beijing Water Science and Technology Institute, Water Resources Department of Shandong Province, Shandong Hydrological Bureau.
