Adhering to the strategy of “developing in partnership with outstanding faculty”, the university now has 1664 full-time teachers, of which 969 are PhDs and 688 are professors or associate professors of different fields. There are 4 academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences or Chinese Academy of Engineering, 16 from the “Thousand Talents Program” and 3 from the “Young Thousand Talents Program” of the Organization Department of the Central Committee of the CPC, 3 professors hold the title of “Yangtze River Scholar” nominated by MOE, 2 members of the Discipline Appraisal Group of the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council, and 15 enjoying the Special Government Allowance from the State Council.

It has also carried out research on 269 national projects and had 63 theses cited by ESI and has been issued 902 patents. With a strong capacity of technology transformation, the National University Science Park of USST ranks the sixth, the Technological Transfer Center ranks as the seventh in China, and the scientific funds and patents of invention have always been among the top 50 universities of China.


As one of the earliest universities to start international cooperation, the university has two Sino-foreign cooperative education institutions, namely, the Sino-British College and the Sino-German College. It is cooperating with more than 120 universities in over 20 countries, such as the United States, Britain, Germany, Canada, Japan, Australia, and Ireland. At present there are over 1,000 international students and more than 500 of them are pursuing academic degrees.  


In the important period of strategic opportunities for China to build “top universities and top disciplines” and for Shanghai to build high-level local universities, with the three international laboratories of future optics, intelligent manufacturing and medical equipment & rehabilitation engineering the platform of systems management as basis, USST is developing such top disciplines as optical engineering, systematic science, power engineering & engineering thermos-physics, mechanical engineering and biomedical engineering. With the goal of building itself into a top university of science and technology with outstanding features, USST will spare no efforts to seize opportunities to reform and innovate to realize its high-level development.
