The Department of Chemistry at Guangdong Technion-Israel Institute of Technology [GTIIT] was officially approved by the China Ministry of Education in early 2022, and conducted student recruitment in the same year.
In the past two decades, three in-service professors of the Technion, where The chemistry discipline is very strong, have won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, namely Aaron Ciechanover (2004), Avram Hershko (2004), and Dan Shechtman (2011).
The Schulich Faculty of Chemistry also has several interdisciplinary projects, including materials engineering, chemical engineering, physics, food engineering, etc., and undertakes more than 100 research projects supported by the chemical industry’s national and international funds, which may provide sufficient teaching and scientific research strength and resources.

Program Positioning

The science of chemistry overlaps with a diverse set of fields, such as physics, mathematics, biology, medicine, and environmental sciences. Chemistry is sometimes referred to as the central science since it connects so many aspects of modern science. Acquiring knowledge of the properties of chemicals and chemical processes can give a deep understanding of biological processes or the physical properties of materials.
As in the Technion and most renowned universities, the Chemistry program will host and provide academic support to several research facilities, offering specialized services to researchers working in various fields and external customers. These research facilities will be available for all GTIIT researchers, other universities, and local industry.

Talent-Cultivation Goal

Chemistry is the science of substances, their properties, structure, and chemical reactions.
The fundamental laws these transformations are subject to are also a significant part of Chemistry.
The program aims to provide students with a solid knowledge of all the subfields of chemistry and to build a solid foundation in the supporting fields of physics, mathematics, and biology.
The Chemistry program includes theoretical and practical training courses in organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry.


A Bachelor of Chemistry is a degree granted to students studying chemistry, including obtaining basic knowledge of structures, compositions, properties of substances, and their changes.
Areas of employment for a chemist include academic research institutes, chemical enterprises (for the production of plastics, synthetic fibers, fabrics, fertilizers, etc.), educational institutions (schools, technical schools, institutes, universities),  medical institutions (hospitals, pharmaceutical industry), central factory laboratories and control stations; food industry enterprises, pharmaceuticals, petroleum, polymer, perfumery, and others industries. In addition, chemists are employed in environmental protection agencies and numerous start-up companies that require chemical input for the development of their products.
In addition, Chemistry graduates can also continue studying to make a career in chemistry as scientists.

Our graduates are expected to have the following skills:

·         Master the basic knowledge, theories, and lab skills of chemistry.

·         Master the basic content of mathematics, physics, biology, and other related disciplines required by the study program.

·         Master the basic methods and means of chemistry research or chemistry design, development, inspection, production, etc., and have the initial ability to discover, propose, analyze, and solve problems in chemistry and related disciplines.

·         Master the essential computer information technology and be able to obtain, process, and use the knowledge of chemistry and other related disciplines.

·         Cultivate systematic and coherent disciplinary thinking, which can initially form a relatively broad disciplinary vision among the main disciplines of chemistry and related interdisciplinary disciplines.

·         Have a broad international vision, cross-cultural communication, competition, and cooperation capabilities.

·         Have the same language proficiency required for studying in universities in English-speaking countries.

Cultivation Scheme

This is a four-year program in Chemistry.
It is designed to provide a strong background in all branches of Chemistry and a solid foundation in the complementary fields of Physics, Mathematics, and Biology.
Following the corresponding program of the Technion, students of the Chemistry program are required to complete 159.5 credits in four years. Generally, students will complete the 124 credits required in the first three (3) years, including 96 credits of mandatory courses, 20 credits of recommended elective courses, six (6) credits of enrichment courses, and two (2) credits of free elective courses.
On top of this, students are required to complete 19.5 credits of courses in Year 4 (semester 7-8), including three (3) credits of recommended elective courses and three (3) credits of internship.
The curriculum includes theoretical knowledge and practical teaching.

Students must complete 16 credits of MOE courses to receive a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from GTIIT.
All courses are taught in English except MOE courses.

When the credit requirements are fulfilled, students will be granted both GTIIT B.Sc and Technion B.Sc. degrees.

Faculty Team

The faculty team of the program is complete, including several teaching and research experienced teachers directly dispatched by the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, as well as professional teachers recruited by the Technion according to its academic standards.
All faculty/teachers were educated in internationally renowned universities, and the teaching and research personnel or lab technicians who undertake the teaching tasks of chemistry basics and professional knowledge all have a chemistry education background and a wealth of teaching experience and research experience background.
Prof. Israel Schechter, the Program Head, has made outstanding achievements in the professional field.
He has rich experience in teaching, scientific research, and management in the Faculty of Chemistry at the Technion.
He served as the President of the Israel Analytical Chemistry Society and the head of the Israel Laboratory Accreditation Authority.
