Program of State Base for Basic Science Research and Education

Major Introduction

In 2008, the Ministry of Education established the state training bases in several selected universities to raise high level personal of biological sciences and technology. Based on the advantage of State Training Base for Biological Sciences and Engineering, State Key Laboratory of Microbial Technology, National Glycoengineering Research Center, Key Laboratory of Plant Cell Engineering and Germless Innovation of Ministry of Education and Key Laboratory of Cell and Animal Development of Shandong Province, the state training base in Shandong University has a solid foundation and unique characters.

The base admit students from freshmen based on their first year academic records and their college entrance record. From the second junior year up, they will take courses in separated classes. Dynamic organization and mentor system are implied. At the end of the second junior year, students′academic performance will be evaluated. Students failed to meet the standards will transfer to other majors and new outstanding students are taken to fill the space.

Academic Objectives

The base takes advantage of the unique characters and superior academic performance in microbiology, cell biology and development biology in the school, aiming at developing high level training base to train students with top quality and international perspective who can undertake basic scientific research and education task and make school of life sciences of Shandong University a world famous education and research center with unique characters and international influence.

Our objective is to provide students with full scale of education opportunities including virtual, intellectual, physical and aesthetical education, thus they will establish healthy personality. Students will learn how to acquire basic knowledge of humanities and social science and solid natural science; how to possess international perspective and how to prepare for further study in master and doctor degree and to undertake basic or applied research as well as education or management work in related areas.

Academic Requirement

The base students will be trained to be legal compliance, honest, with strong teamwork consciousness as well as healthy personality; possess international perspective as well as personal skills; endured strict training of scientific methodology, possess solid education in life sciences with realistic and innovative spirits; further more, healthy body, strong psychological personality and good life style.

The students are also required to possess strong self-motivation and good communication skills, good computer skills; have the ability of comprehensively applying the existing theory and technology to engage in the scientific research the life sciences and related areas as well as capacity in biotechnological research and development, the capacity of creative thinking, develop innovative experiment and scientific research.
