Established in 2013, ShanghaiTech University is a young research university comprised of five schools and two research institutes: School of Physical Science and Technology, School of Life Science and Technology, School of Physical Science and Technology, School of Entrepreneurship and Management, and School of Creative Art and Design (under preparation). The structure of our five schools emphasizes the cross-disciplinary and innovative nature of our research, approach to education and community service. We intend to leverage our location in the City of Shanghai, with the support of the Shanghai Municipal Government and the extraordinary resources of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
ShanghaiTech is completing a state-of-the-art research infrastructure and has formed a network of research alliances with nearby facilities such as CAS Shanghai Advanced Research Institutes, Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility, National Center for Protein Science Shanghai, and Shanghai Engineering Center for Microsatellites.
The University is building a top-tier faculty of 1,000 professors including 500 tenured/tenure track faculty (recruited globally) and 500 adjunct faculty recruited from CAS Institutes, leading global companies, and other prestigious universities. Among the current faculty (numbering 379), three are Nobel Laureates. We have campuses in downtown Shanghai and Pudong Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, the latter is now home to 506 undergraduate students and near 1,000 graduate students.
