The University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST) is a public university established in the city of Shanghai in 1906. USST’s main campus is located in 516 Jungong Road, Shanghai, China. As a major applied research university, it focuses on engineering, science, management, economics, literature, law, art, and other related disciplines. In the 1980s, it was the third of four universities in Shanghai authorized to grant doctoral degrees in business and management. It is now one of five post-doctoral research stations in Management Science and Engineering in Shanghai.
The governing body of USST is the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission (SMEC), an administrative committee of Shanghai Municipality, operationally instructed by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. The SMEC is an outward-looking, innovative organization that is responsible for all levels of education activities in Shanghai – from student recruitment, to international cooperation among universities, to allocation of education budget to these universities.
