The School of Advanced Materials (SAM) is founded in 2011. Based in Peking University Shenzhen (PKUSZ), SAM is aiming to become a world class Materials Science & Engineering department. The new school will focus on research areas such as new energy materials, electronic information materials and biomedical materials. Its mission is to train talented graduate students with advanced materials science knowledge and to become well known research center in the world.
As a new member in PKU Shenzhen, SAM will further strengthen its role as an international school with interdisciplinary and applied academic environment. The new school will collaborate in both education and research with first class universities in the world and will also develop a unique collaboration pattern with Chinese industries and research centers. We welcome talented scientists and engineers from all disciplines who are interested in joining our school.
SAM is currently recruiting first class scientists and innovative research team worldwide. Aiming to become a world-class school of Materials Science and Engineering, SAM plans to recruit at least 30 professors and researchers in the next 5 years, with a capacity of educating about 100 graduate students in the fifth year.
What is unique about SAM
International School---- We are planning to build joint laboratories with UC Berkeley, Stanford, Harvard etc, training high-quality scientific research personnel to conduct a joint R&D on advanced materials.
Enterprise-oriented Industrial Technology Innovation System--- Combining the free spirit of innovation with the advanced project management tools, SAM will cooperate closely with local enterprises and research institutes to form the collaborative R & D system.
