*** Information about University and Institute
SJTU is ranked among top ten universities in engineering according to US news global ranking.
UM-SJTU Joint Institute (JI) (, founded in 2006, represents a
strategic global partnership between the two top universities in US and China, University of
Michigan (UM) and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). The Chinese Government and
both partner universities are fully committed to develop JI as a world-class institute for
engineering education. During the past years, JI has developed tremendously and achieved
extraordinary accomplishments, such as “First-Class Award for National Education Reform”
(2009), “Model of Chinese Higher Education Reform” by Chinese State Council in 2011, and
“Model for International Education in Shanghai” (2012). In 2014, JI was the first Chinese
institution to win the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education,
one of the highest honors in international higher education. In a short time, JI has set a successful
example for Sino-American educational collaboration in China, which has made a great impact
on other Chinese universities.
In June 2012, SJTU and University of Michigan signed a 10-year (2012-2022) agreement on
strategic collaboration, laying a solid foundation for further Sino-US education cooperation.
