Dear colleagues, alumni and friends:
In 2001, the year of snake according to Chinese zodiac, TU established the school of pharmaceutical science and technology with founding Dean Prof. Kang Zhao at the helm and a charter theme to deliver high-standard basic education, to train experts at scientific and technical levels and to serve the society for better living.
Great success has been made over the last decade; our undergraduate and postgraduate alumni are working as key players all over the world and original research from SPST PI's has been attained international recognition for its excellence.
One zodiac cycle later, 2013 marks again the year of snake and signals the start of our second round of development with a focus on academic excellence and fully integrated international scholarship.
The road ahead is a great challenge; we will undergo a major faculty expansion with an extensive international hiring campaign as well as a substantial capital infrastructure improvement plan. As proposed in the 5 –year plan (2013-2018), a reform will take place affecting teaching, research and internal operations. To make SPST accessible to scholars of excellence from all corners of the globe, English will be the official language used throughout the school. Through the recruitment of a reasonable proportion of international faculty and students SPST will offer an unprecendented cosmopolitan scholastic environment.
