Shanghai Municipal Government gives arrive and money related support, offers assets for workforce enlistment, instructing and look into exercises, and in charge of the operation of the college. Chinese Academy of Sciences gives some portion of employees and open access to its exploration offices, library and data assets. Strategically placed in Shanghai Pudong Science and Technology Park of CAS in Zhangjiang InnoPark, ShanghaiTech is in the region of a few national research foundations and substantial logical offices, for example, CAS Shanghai Advanced Research Institute, National Center for Protein Science âShanghai, New Drug Research Platform of Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Shanghai Engineering Center for Microsatellites, Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility, and near enterprises and wander supports inside the Zhangjiang InnoPark. The grounds covers roughly 0.6 square kilometer. The aggregate floor range of the affirmed tasks is more than 700,000 square meters. In view of the idea of "workforce and understudy situated" and "association and incorporation", the outline of the grounds won the 2012 American Institute of Architects, California Council (AIACC) Awards for Urban Design.
The foundation ventures have been finished and is slowly being put into utilization. ShanghaiTech concentrates on science and designing. The college comprises of four schools and two research establishments: School of Physical Science and Technology (SPST), School of Information Science and Technology (SIST), School of Life Science and Technology (SLST), School of Entrepreneurship and Management (SEM), Shanghai Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS) and iHuman Institute. ShanghaiTech is working up a solid staff of 1000 educators, including 500 residency track/tenured teachers enlisted from around the globe and 500 recognized educators in-living arrangement from CAS organizations and different prestigious colleges or establishments. Among our present staff (387 by September 2016) are three Nobel laureates, six National Academy of Sciences (USA) individuals, two Royal Society (UK) individual, twenty-six CAS individuals and three Chinese Academy of Engineering individuals. ShanghaiTech offers Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, Doctoral degree and Professional Master Degree. The college understudies will achieve 2,000 and graduate understudies will achieve 4,000 (counting 3,000 Ph.D. hopefuls). The principal accomplice of 296 graduate understudies was conceded in September 2013, trailed by 425 graduate understudies in 2014 and 385 graduate understudies in 2015.
The primary partner of 207 college understudies from 9 areas of China were enlisted in 2014. In 2016, 353 college understudies were acknowledged for enlistment. ShanghaiTech expects to support future driving researchers, creators and business people.

Understudies are urged to examine the difficulties China countenances, to investigate bleeding edge explore zones and cutting edge ventures, and to put their creative and entrepreneurial thoughts vigorously. In 2016, fourteen groups of understudies from Class of 2019 participated in Social Engagement Programs in eight territories/self-sufficient locales around China.
The undertakings incorporate social custom, condition and vitality, urbanization, mechanical advancement, and instructive improvement. Among the top notch of graduate understudies, 100 understudies have passed PhD placement tests and will proceed with their reviews in the fall semester. Research is fixated on boondocks of physical science and innovation, life science and innovation and data science and innovation, directed by both individual educators and research groups. By empowering interdisciplinary approach and the mix of college and national research offices, the college expects to frame an entire advancement esteem tie which is to drive the mechanical improvement by progression of science, and is focused on finding imaginative resolutions to address the difficulties amid the change of China.
By the September of 2016, ShanghaiTech University had 109 research groups incorporating 29 in School of Physical Science and Technology, 23 in School of Life Science and Technology, 27 in School of Information Science and Technology, 10 in School of Entrepreneurship and Management, 10 in Shanghai Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS) and 10 in iHuman Institute. Toward the finish of 2015, the representing assortment of Zhangjiang Comprehensive National Science Center has been situated in ShanghaiTech and among the initial four huge scale logical offices started by the Center, ShanghaiTech is included in the development of Live Cell Imagining Facility, Ultra-Intense and Ultrashort Pulse Laser Facility and Free Electron Laser Facility. ShanghaiTech is effectively occupied with the globalization of training and has broad coordinated effort with UC Berkeley, University of Chicago, MIT, Padova University and so forth in the field of preparing of personnel, course sharing, joint degrees, understudy trade, scholastic trade and joint research. The college is likewise attempting to cooperate with other top Chinese colleges.
To separate the hindrance amongst research and industry, ShanghaiTech works together intimately with household and worldwide cutting edge organizations, for example, Amgen (the biggest free biotechnology firm on the planet) and Broadcom (a worldwide pioneer and trend-setter in semiconductor answers for wired and remote correspondences) in joint innovative work and understudy preparing. In 2016, 85 understudies took an interest in summer programs their mid year programs at University of California-Berkeley, University of Chicago and Padova University. ShanghaiTech likewise invited understudies from University of Chicago and Massachusetts Institute of Technology to do summer research or workshops. The 3+1 Study Abroad Program gives understudies chances to ponder for up to one scholarly year in accomplice colleges.
