College of Architecture and Civil Engineering

The School of Architecture and Civil Engineering was founded in 1984. Currently, there are 6 undergraduate specialties — Civil Engineering (first-class specialty), Engineering Management (first-class specialty), Architecture, Engineering Cost, Environmental Engineering, and Geomatics Engineering.

The School currently has 109 faculty members, including 99 full-time teachers, 12 professors, 28 associate professors. Among them, there are 48 doctors, accounting for 48.5% of the total, 5 ditinguished professors and 1 distinguished high-end foreign expert. Dual-qualified teachers account for more than 90%, and more than 30 people have professional qualifications such as the certified architect, geotechnical engineer, structural engineer, constructor, surveyor, environmental assessment engineer, and r cost engineer.

In the past three years, talent cultivation has made significant achievements. Based on the "Double Ten Thousand" Plan of the Ministry of Education, the Comprehensive Professional Reform Project of the Ministry of Education and Sichuan Province, and the Excellent Engineer Training Program of Sichuan Province, the School has carried out the construction of specialties. By vigorously cultivating "BIM+PC" new technical talents, the School has signed school-enterprise cooperation agreements with more than 50 units. Great importance is attached to encourage and train students to participate in various discipline competitions. Students have won a total of 68 national, provincial, and ministerial competition awards (including 38 at the national level and 30 at the provincial and ministerial level); the average employment rate of graduates in the last three years is 92%, the post-graduates enrolling rate is 13%, and the high-quality employment rate is increasing year by year.
