The school vigorously implements the strategy of strengthening the school by talents. There are 1693 full-time teachers, including 742 teachers with senior professional titles and 186 doctoral supervisors. Among the teaching and research personnel, 72.3% have doctoral degrees, and teachers with overseas experience of more than one year account for More than 33.7%. The school has 8 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering (including double-employment); 50 national-level talents such as the National Outstanding Youth Science Fund and the “Millions of Plan” leaders; Shanghai leading talents, Shanghai outstanding academic leaders, etc. There are 127 provincial and ministerial personnel.

University of Shanghai for Science and Technology is a backbone university in the equipment manufacturing, medical equipment and publishing and printing industries. Power engineering and engineering thermophysics, optical engineering, management science and engineering have long been at the leading position in China. Based on the profound industry foundations in medical equipment and publishing and printing, we are actively building social, economic and cultural developments such as biomedical engineering and digital communication. Urgently needed subject. With the development of engineering education, the national and local major strategies such as China Manufacturing 2025, military-civilian integration, and the construction of Shanghai Global Science and Technology Center, the school focuses on health, military industry, cross-disciplinary integration, and collaborative innovation, forming a terahertz photonics, new Energy, additive manufacturing, rehabilitation engineering, minimally invasive medical equipment, complex systems science, system control big data and many other marginal disciplines and cutting-edge research directions; Shanghai Industrial Automation Instrumentation Research Institute and Shanghai Power Generation Equipment, formerly affiliated to the Ministry of Machinery Industry Complete Design Institute, Shanghai Electric Apparatus Research Institute, Shanghai Electric Cable Research Institute, Shanghai Materials Research Institute, Shanghai Electric Power Tools Research Institute, Shanghai Industrial Boiler Research Institute, Shanghai Electric Group Central Research Institute, etc. “And the Shanghai Graduate School of Machinery Industry”, strengthen the industry’s common technology research and innovative talent training; build a military scientific research qualification system based on “military three certificates”, and the three fields of optics, energy and control are approved by the National Defense Science and Technology Bureau. National defense disciplines.

University of Shanghai for Science and Technology has vigorously upgraded its scientific and technological competitiveness and actively served the national innovation-driven strategy. In the past three years, the school has won two second prizes of the National Science and Technology Progress Award, 57 provincial and ministerial science and technology awards, one military scientific and technological progress, more than 269 national scientific research projects, and more than 63 ESI high cited papers. More than 902 invention patents. The school has a strong ability to transfer technology. The National University Science and Technology Park ranks 6th in the country, and the Technology Transfer Center ranks 7th in the country. Research funding and invention patents have long ranked among the top 50 universities in China.

University of Shanghai for Science and Technology promotes the tradition of running a school based on the combination of industry, production, education and research.
