Shanghai Polytechnic Universit was listed by the State Council ’s Degree Committee as a pilot unit for professional degree graduate training in the “Service Project for Serving National Special Needs Talents”, which has embarked on a characteristic development road for technology-oriented universities. In the course of running a school, the school has always adhered to the direction of running a socialist school, fulfilled the fundamental tasks of appointing people, adhered to the orientation of “professional-oriented higher education”, adhered to the combination of education and economic society, combined education with production and labor, and followed the laws of education. Strengthening the construction of connotation and taking on social responsibilities, delivering more than 110,000 technical and application-oriented talents at all levels, including national labor model and outstanding inventors Bao Qifan, Li Bin, etc., for Shanghai’s modernization construction. The school’s performance is hailed as the benchmark of Chinese vocational education and the cradle of model labor training. In 2017, the Shanghai Education Commission organized a review and evaluation of the undergraduate teaching work of the school, fully affirming the school’s school positioning and school performance.
Shanghai Polytechnic University consists of the main campus and several branch campuses, with a total area of nearly 800 acres. The main campus is located on Jinhai Road, Pudong, Shanghai, with a building area of nearly 300,000 square meters, including an experimental training center of more than 40,000 square meters and an engineering training center of more than 20,000 square meters. It has 45 standard laboratories with an area of 66,000 square meters for experimental rooms, a total fixed asset value of 566 million yuan for teaching and scientific research equipment, a collection of more than 1.46 million paper books, more than 2.75 million e-books, and complete computer network services. system. The school implements a school-level (school) two-level management system, with a department of engineering (under the School of Intelligent Manufacturing and Control Engineering, a School of Computer and Information Engineering, and a School of Environmental and Materials Engineering), and a department of Humanities and Science (under the Faculty of Science, the School of Foreign Languages, and the Public Department of Relations, General Education Center), School of Economics and Management, School of Applied Art and Design, Higher Vocational Technical (International) College, International Exchange College, Marxism College, Ministry of Physical Education, Engineering Training Center, Art Education Center, Continuing Education College And e-waste research center and 12 secondary teaching and research units.

It has 43 undergraduate majors, 31 higher vocational majors, and 1 master’s degree category. The school has 3 national specialty majors, 2 majors of the outstanding engineer training plan of the Ministry of Education, 1 Ministry of Education “Undergraduate Teaching Project” local universities, the first batch of undergraduate major comprehensive reform pilots, and 10 applied undergraduate pilot majors in Shanghai universities , 8 undergraduate education highland construction projects in Shanghai, 2 full English construction majors. The school has 4 middle school majors, 6 middle and high school majors, and 1 high school major.
Shanghai Polytechnic University insists on building up people, cultivating high-tech and high-skilled application-oriented talents who have mastered professional skills, advocating professional credit, and showing professional characteristics, and establish and improve the entire staff, the entire process, and the comprehensive education system and the quality of education System to continuously promote education and teaching reform and connotation construction, and ensure the steady improvement of the quality of talent training.
Shanghai Polytechnic University carries forward the fine tradition of combining work with study and industry-academia cooperation. It is close to academics, close to industry, close to employment, strengthens professional construction demonstration and revision of talent training programs, and implements a complete credit system and academic tutor system. The school actively explores and innovates diversified talent training models, through the “engineering introduction” engineering master training model exploration, outstanding engineer education training plan, CDIO engineering education reform, German FH education model localization practice, etc., to improve students’ engineering practice ability, Professional adaptability and professional development ability. Relying on the pilot of medium-to-high-through, medium-to-high, and high-to-through training modes, through the integrated design of the training plan, the development channel for application-oriented talents is expanded, and the connection and training system for application-oriented talents is strived to be structured. In recent years, the employment rate of school graduates has remained above 98%, students’ entrepreneurial ability has continued to improve, and the quality of graduates has been affirmed by employers.
