College of Resources and Environment developed from the former Department of Agricultural Chemistry established in 1948, and is one of the oldest colleges in Shandong Agricultural University. It was re-organized in October, 1994. With the development of more than 70 years, the college has developed into a second-level college with first-level discipline doctoral programs and postdoctoral stations, national engineering laboratories, national engineering and technology research centers, and national characteristic undergraduate majors.
The college owns 1 mobile post-doctoral station in the discipline of utilization science of agricultural resources, 1 first-level discipline doctoral degree program in the discipline of agricultural resources and environment sciences, 3 second-level discipline doctoral degree programsin disciplines of soil science,plant nutrition and fertilizer science, as well as land resource science. There are 4 first-level discipline master's degree programs in disciplines of agricultural resources and environment, environmental science and engineering, public administration (land resource management), and surveying and mapping, as well as 4 professional master's degree programs in disciplines of resource utilization and plant protection, agricultural engineering and information technology, resources and environment (environment engineering) and public administration. The discipline of utilization science of agricultural resources was ranked at the top among similar colleges and universities nationwide.
It currently consists of 7 undergraduate majors, namely agricultural resources and environment, land resource management, geographic information science, environmental science, environmental engineering, pratacultural science, and ecological engineering of environment. There is also 1 sino-foreign cooperatively-running undergraduate major, namely Sino-British land resource management. Agricultural resources and environment is a national characteristic major. Land resource management, environmental science and geographic information science are school-level characteristic majors.
The college now has 96 faculty members, including 10 administrative staff, 11 teaching support staff and 75 teachers among whom there are 19 professors, 34 associate professors and 22 lecturers. 69 teachers have PhD degrees.
