Introduction of School of Railway Transportation:
As one of the most distinctive schools of Shanghai Institute of Technology (SIT), the School of Railway Transportation (RTS) is established to meet the fast development of international high-speed railway and rail transit, Its goal is to cultivate front-line technical personnel and management staff in the field of railway transportation. Taking the educational and geographical advantage of SIT, RTS forced on constructing four majors, including railway signaling & communication, vehicle engineering, track engineering and electric traction & transmission, to meet the technical requirements of modern railway transportation. We are determined to build RTS into an ideal place for the education of applied talents in the high-speed railway and rail transit field.
RTS has a reasonable-structured faculty with high academic background, abundant teaching experience, and strong engineering practical ability. The faculty mainly comes from domestic well known research institutes and first-line companies, i.e. Tongji University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Southwest Jiaotong University, Shanghai University, China Academy of Railway Sciences, Shanghai Construction Group, Shanghai Railway Bureau, and Shanghai Metro. At present, there are over 20 teachers (full-time & part-time), including 3 professors, 11 associate professors, and 5 lectures, of which 85 percent have PH.D. degree. So far, the whole faculty devote themselves to teaching and research with high enthusiasm and pragmatic attitude, aiming to bring up more and more applied talents for Chinese modern railway transportation.
Introduction of Testing & Training Center:
Supported by SIT and first-line industry companies, RTS is being built ‘Railway Signaling & Communication’, ‘Vehicle Engineering’, and ‘Track engineering’ synthetical testing & training center, which would focus on undergraduate practice teaching system such as particular public basic courses, professional curricular tests, and large comprehensive experiments. Furthermore, in accordance with the belief to bring up more and more applied talents, the laboratories would open around the clock for undergraduate engineering practices, technical innovations, and supporting scholastic research.
