The Department of Chemistry of Renmin
University of China (RUC) was established in 2004, with both master's degree program
and doctoral degree program in chemistry. In accordance with its development
philosophy of building small-scale, top-notch and cutting-edge science
subjects, the department has achieved remarkable achievement in training top-notch
chemistry professionals and in the field of energy, environment, materials and
bioscience. In 2020, the Department of Chemistry of RUC entered the top 0.41%
of the global ESI ranking, marking a remarkable improvement of the top 1% in
2015. As a major contributor, the Department of Chemistry has played a
significant role in helping the University enter the top 1% of ESI in Materials
in 2020. The Department of Chemistry was selected as a national first-class
undergraduate program in 2022. The Department of Chemistry is positioned to
serve the university's talent cultivation strategy, conducting basic researches
in accordance with national demand on a selective basis and with clear focus.
Going forward, the department is committed to developing into a world-class
chemistry education and research institution.
The Department of Physics of Renmin
University of China was established in September 2005, covering two undergraduate majors in Physics and Materials Physics, a first-level doctoral
program in Physics, three second-level doctoral programs in Theoretical Physics,
Condensed Matter Physics, and Atomic-molecular Physics, and corresponding master's programs. " In 2020, Physics was approved as a national first-class undergraduate program. One year later, the program was selected as
a base for the Ministry of Education's "2.0 Program for Cultivating Top-notch Students in Basic Disciplines". In addition, we have one Beijing key laboratory,
one key laboratory for neutron scattering in Renmin University of China, and
two "Changjiang Scholar Innovation Teams" authorized by the Ministry
of Education. So far, the Department of Physics has received one second-class
prize of the National Natural Science Award, one first-class prize of the
Natural Science Award of the Ministry of Education, one second-class prize of
Beijing Science and Technology, and one second-class prize of Zhejiang Natural
Science Award. The Department of Physics, with its mission to cultivate
top-notch innovative talents, is a rising star among the physics departments of
well-known universities in China and abroad, with its international management
model, excellent teaching conditions, outstanding research capabilities, and
active international exchanges.
The Institute of Statistics and Big Data (ISBD) at The Renmin University of China was established in May of 2015 with the mission to build a first-class discipline in Statistics and Data Science. It supports research and teaching in traditional statistical areas, such as mathematical statistics, financial statistics, biostatistics, computational statistics, spatial statistic and applied statistics, and other related areas, such as large data optimization and algorithm, large data (structured or non-structured) mining, machine learning and deep learning.
The School of
Mathematics is currently comprised of Institute for Mathematical Sciences,
Engineering Research Center of Financial Computing and Digital Engineering
Department of Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, Department of
Information and Computational Science, Department of financial mathematics and
financial computing. In 2011 it was approved to grant doctoral degrees of the
level-1 discipline on mathematics. In 2019, the post doctoral research station
of mathematics was approved, and mathematics and applied mathematics entered
the first batch of first-class undergraduate majors in China. The school
currently has 61 full-time teachers, among whom there are 3 foreign professors
(full time) and 10 teachers are elected to the National Talents Plan.
