资源与环境学院是2000年12月在原土壤与农业化学和农业环境保护专业，以及生态学、微生物学和农业气象学等学科的基础上成立的。学院依托“土壤农化”（现为农业资源与环境）具有近六十于年办学历史的传统专业，以及现代社会发展普遍关注的“生态学”、“环境科学”、“环境工程”、 “应用生物科学”、 “应用气象学”等五个新兴的学科专业，形成了涵盖农学、理学、工学等多个学科门类，本硕博多层次的综合性办学特色，也是学校发展较快的学院之一，学院办学特色和优势正逐步显现。
学院有黑龙江省 “土壤保护与修复” 重点实验室、省高校“寒地黑土利用与保护”重点实验室、黑龙江省教育厅新型肥料研发工程中心等多个研究机构，另外还有学校“211工程”建设的“植物营养与生长调控工程中心”、“农业生态与环境工程中心”。拥有万元以上设备210余台，设备总价值达1464万元。硬件基本达到了国内先进水平，可以满足教学、科研对仪器设备的需要，并已基本实现大型仪器的共享。
Introduction to College of Resources and Environment
College of Resources and Environment (CRE) was established in December 2000 on the basis of original major of soil and agriculture chemistry and agriculture environment, and disciplines of ecology, microbiology and agriculture meteorology. Relied on traditional major of “soil agrochemical” (now agricultural resources and environment) with nearly 60 years history, and six emerging disciplines of “ecology”, “environmental science”, “environmental engineering”, “applied biological science” and “applied meteorology” that are generally concerned by modern society, CRE has formed comprehensive school-running characteristics with multiple disciplines such as agronomy, science, and engineering, and multi-level talents cultivation of undergraduate education, master education, and doctoral education. Recently, the school-running characteristics and advantage of CRE have been gradually appearing, and CRE has become one of the colleges with faster development in Northeast Agricultural University (NEAU).
There has been currently one primary discipline of agricultural resources and environment (Provincial key discipline) and five secondary disciplines in CRE with the unremitting efforts of several generations for more than 60 years. CRE has one first-level doctoral degree authorized discipline, one post-doctoral mobile station, and five second-level degree authorized disciplines including soil science, plant nutrition, environmental protection and restoration, ecological engineering and agrometeorology, and resource and environmental microbiology.
CRE currently has totally 82 full-time faculty members, including 62 full-time teachers that are composed of 18 professors and 23 associate professors. 57 teachers received a doctorate. Dean Professor Zhang Ying is now a Cheung Kong Scholar and winner of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars. Professor Zhang Ying was selected in the second batch of “National High-Level Talents Special Support Plan (Ten-Thousand Talents Program)” and was awarded Young and middle-aged expert with outstanding contributions of “National Ten Million Talent Project”, National Excellent Teacher, Young and middle-aged leader in science and technology innovation of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Distinguished Professor of Heilongjiang province. The team led by Professor Zhang Ying is the Outstanding Agricultural Research Talents and Innovation Team of the Ministry of Agriculture. At present, CRE has 2 winners of special allowances from the State Council, 1 member of the Disciplinary Review Team of the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council, 1 winner of the New Century Talent Fund of the Ministry of Education, 1 member of the Atmospheric Science Teaching Steering Committee of the Ministry of Education, 2 winners of New Century Talents of Heilongjiang province, and 5 key teachers of Heilongjiang Education Department. CRE has 12 doctoral supervisors, 3 external doctoral supervisors, 38 master supervisors and 11 external master supervisors. And there are 1019 undergraduates, 335 full-time masters and 25 PhD candidates.
CRE has Heilongjiang Provincial Key Laboratory of “Soil Conservation and Rehabilitation”, Heilongjiang Provincial College Key Laboratory of “Utilization and Protection of Black Soil in Cold Region”, New Fertilizer Research and Development Engineering Center from Department of Education of Heilongjiang and other research institutions, as well as Plant Nutrition and Growth Regulation Engineering Center constructed by “Project 211” of NEAU and Agricultural Ecology and Environmental Engineering Center. There are more than 210 sets of equipment with more than ten thousand RMB, and the total value of the equipment reaches 14.64 million RMB. The hardware of CRE has basically reached the domestic advanced level, which can meet the needs of teaching and scientific research on instruments and equipment, and has basically realized the sharing of large instruments.
In the past five years, CRE has hosted 54 national-level projects including the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” Key Research and Development Program of Ministry of Science and Technology; undertaken more than 10 international projects such as the European Union and the United Nations; undertaken 83 provincial and ministerial levels projects, and 204 other kinds of projects. CRE has won 135 scientific research and teaching awards, with a scientific research funding of more than 60 million RMB (excluding teaching funds); CRE has won 1 first prize, 6 second prizes and 4 third prizes of Heilongjiang Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award, 3 first prizes, 6 second prizes and 5 third prizes of Outstanding Scientific Research Achievements of Social Sciences in Heilongjiang Province; CRE has 25 invention patents and 58 utility model patents; CRE has published 971 academic papers, including 301 papers indexed by the four major retrievals; more than 70 monographs and textbooks have been published by National Publishing House.
In 2010, Professor He Wanyun from the department of agricultural resources science and technology of CRE, together with Professor Wang Jinling, Academician Jiang Yiyuan, Professor Luo Chengxiang, Professor Tong Mingyao and other agricultural experts of the whole province in a total of 11 people, won the “Heilongjiang Province Agricultural Science and Technology Merit Award”. Professor Liu Yuanying from the department of agricultural resources science won the Heilongjiang Governor’s Special Award.
Science and technology co-construction has always been the strength and characteristics of CRE. CRE has 7 research and development centers for school-enterprise cooperation. In recent years, CRE has made full use of the platform jointly built with Suihua, Mishan, Huachuan, Wuchang, Baiquan, Hailun, Nehe, Shangzhi, Luobei, Shuangcheng, Mudanjiang and other cities and counties, strengthen the promotion of scientific and technological achievements, further developed close cooperation between industry, college and research institute, and have gradually become one of the most active colleges in the first-line service of the new rural construction in Heilongjiang Province.
CRE attaches great importance to foreign exchange work, successively carrying out academic exchanges, personnel training, and scientific research cooperation with the United States, Japan, Russia, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, and other countries and regions. CRE has sent a dozen teachers abroad for visiting and studying and received 50 well-known experts and scholars from Japan, the United States, Russia, Canada, etc. Nearly 30 people have visited and attended international conferences abroad, and more than 100 people have participated in large conferences organized in China and various foreign academic exchanges. A number of master and doctoral students have been sent abroad to study, and have won more than 10 major international cooperation projects from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the European Union and Israel.
