Department of Building Materials and Sanitation Technology was established in 1971. Since 1987 the name of department was changed into Department of Building Materials and Environment Technology. Since 1989, Department of Building Materials was separated and officially established. Up to now, Department of Building Materials has been training nearly 2000 engineers, 50 MEng. students and 15 PhD students in the field of building materials and building materials technology
The department is subdivided into the following research sections:
