The School of Science and Technology (SST) offers five undergraduate programs, namely Mathematics & Applied Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Environmental Engineering, Food Science & Engineering; and one associate degree program, namely Mathematics Education, with a total of 1769 full-time students.

Currently, there are 79 members in teaching staff, of whom 75 are full-time teachers, 14 are professors, 24 are associate professors, 30 are lecturers, 17 are double-titled teachers, 16 hold doctor degrees, and 31 hold master degrees. Among the teachers of SST, 1 is titled as First-Level Talent in “515 Talents Project”, Hainan, and 2 are titled as Excellent Experts with Outstanding Contributions, Hainan.

At SST, there are Experimental Center, Food Research Centre, Institute of Environmental Science, Modern Optical Research Team, and Mathematical Modeling Innovation Team. The Experimental Center has two subsidiary centers namely Lab Center for Physics and Lab Center for Chemistry, with the former one being Hainan’s Model Teaching and Learning Center for Physics. In addition, SST has 1 provincial-level teaching team and 1 provincial-level excellent course. In recent years, 400 papers, 5 academic works and 15 textbooks have been published, among which over 80 papers are included by the Science Citation Index (SCI) and the Engineering Index (EI). So far, teachers and students of SST have undertaken or participated in 5 projects of National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), 60 provincial-level and 30 municipal-level research projects. Among these projects, 1 is awarded with second prize for National Teaching Achievements; 1 is identified as “International Advanced Level” by the Department of Science and Technology, Hainan, and is awarded with first prize for Technology Advancement; 8 have obtained invention patents; several others are awarded with third prizes for technology advancement in the provincial level.

In recent years, graduates of SST have done excellent performance in the National Postgraduate Exams and 39 students have been admitted by national key universities. Students of SST also make good performance in China Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling (CUMCM), of whom 8 are awarded with national first prizes, 25 are awarded with national second prizes, and 36, 50, 35 are awarded with fist, second and third prizes respectively in the provincial-level. In the fourth Hainan Competition of Extracurricular Academic Technical Works, 3 students got the first prizes. Each year, around 450 students will take the occupational skill tests in fields like food inspection, chemical test, and electrician test. Over 96% of them can get relevant occupational skills credentials issued by national authorities.
