The East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) is a premier seat of higher learning and research activities in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Today, ECUST has established a niche for itself in the realm of academics and research work internationally.
TRACING THE ROOTS
The East China University of Science and Technology was established in the culturally rich cosmopolitan urban hub of Shanghai in 1938.
The East China University of Science and Technology has three picturesque campuses. They are located in Fengxian, Jinshan, and Xuhui. Each campus is located amidst a serene natural environment having well manicured parks. The overall environment is serene thereby offering the most tranquil of surroundings to the students to concentrate on their academic pursuits in a carefree manner.
The social touch of all activities of each University member has been a noteworthy aspect. This added to the humane outlook of the University team members including those in the three sectors of Management; Faculty; and Service has made this institution very popular.
LATEST INFRASTRUCTURAL BACKUP
The mandarins of ECUST have been consistently introducing the latest in all its departments. As a result, the portals of this university have been the alma mater of a significant number of eminent alumni who have been contributing their mite to all sectors of the society.
Today, this ‘Key University’ of China offers curricula in varied principal disciplines. The courses of ECUST include Arts and Humanities, Economics, Engineering, Information Technology (IT), Law, Management, and Science.
The founders of East China University of Science and Technology chose the acronym ‘IPIM’ standing for ‘Industry, Pragmatics, Inspiration and Morality’ as the motto of the educational epicenter in Shanghai.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
True to its philosophy, the Research and Development (R&D) wing of ECUST has been following a double-pronged strategy to boost its performance and also attract students of higher caliber from all parts of the world.
The time-proven result-oriented integrated two-tier approach includes
A solid pillar of the East China University of Science and Technology has been its extremely qualified and dedicated human resource in the R&D wing and faculty members. It is constituted by prominent academicians and highly competent research teams. These professional personnel have stellar roles in a number of state-level and national-level key research units.
In the 1950s, the China’s Education Ministry gave its nod to the management of the East China University of Science and Technology to admit foreign students in its courses. The foreign students can also avail of scholarships accorded by the Government of People’s Republic of China.
ECUST has students and faculty exchange programs and even research tie-ups with more than 90 countries. Hundreds of foreign students from more than 80 countries have already successfully completed their academic pursuits here. Similarly a large number of students from these and several other countries are still pursuing studies and carrying on research work in the University.
Shanghai is the largest Chinese city by population and the largest city proper by population in the world. It is one of the four direct-controlled municipalities of the People’s Republic of China, with a population of more than 24 million as of 2013. It is a global financial center, and a transport hub with the world’s busiest container port. Located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits at the mouth of the Yangtze in the middle portion of the Chinese coast. The municipality borders the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the north, south and west, and is bounded to the east by the East China Sea.
For centuries a major administrative, shipping, and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port location and economic potential. The city was one of five opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War while the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking and 1844 Treaty of Whampoa allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession. The city then flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became the undisputed financial hub of the Asia Pacific in the 1930s. However, with the Communist Party takeover of the mainland in 1949, trade was reoriented to focus on socialist countries, and the city’s global influence declined. In the 1990s, the economic reforms introduced by Deng Xiaoping resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment to the city.
Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum. It has been described as the “showpiece” of the booming economy of mainland China.
Shanghai has a humid subtropical climate and experiences four distinct seasons. Winters are chilly and damp, and cold northwesterly winds from Siberia can cause nighttime temperatures to drop below freezing, although most years there are only one or two days of snowfall. Summers are hot and humid, with an average of 8.7 days exceeding 35 °C (95 °F) annually; occasional downpours or freak thunderstorms can be expected. The city is also susceptible to typhoons in summer and the beginning of autumn, none of which in recent years has caused considerable damage. The most pleasant seasons are spring, although changeable and often rainy, and autumn, which is generally sunny and dry. The city averages 4.2 °C (39.6 °F) in January and 27.9 °C (82.2 °F) in July, for an annual mean of 16.1 °C (61.0 °F). With monthly percent possible sunshine ranging from 34% in March to 54% in August, the city receives 1,895 hours of bright sunshine annually. Extreme temperatures within the municipality range from 40.8 °C (105 °F) on 7 August 2013, down to -12.1 °C (10 °F) on 19 January 1893
Shanghai has an extensive public transport system, largely based on metros, buses and taxis. Payment of all these public transportation tools can be made by using the Shanghai Public Transportation Card.
Shanghai is a major hub of China’s expressway network. Many national expressways (prefixed with G) pass through or terminate in Shanghai, including G2 Beijing-Shanghai Expressway (overlapping G42 Shanghai-Chengdu), G15 Shenyang-Haikou, G40 Shanghai-Xi’an, G50 Shanghai-Chongqing, G60 Shanghai-Kunming (overlapping G92 Shanghai-Ningbo), and G1501 Shanghai Ring Expressway. In addition, there are also numerous municipal expressways prefixed with S (S1, S2, S20, etc.). In the city center, there are several elevated expressways to lessen traffic pressure on surface streets, but traffic in and around Shanghai is often heavy and traffic jams are commonplace during rush hour. There are bicycle lanes separate from car traffic on many surface streets, but bicycles and motorcycles are banned from most main roads including the elevated expressways.
Shanghai has four major railway stations: Shanghai Railway Station, Shanghai South Railway Station, Shanghai West Railway Station, and Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station. Three are connected to the metro network and serve as hubs in the railway network of China. Two main railways terminate in Shanghai: Jinghu Railway from Beijing, and Huhang Railway from Hangzhou. Hongqiao Station also serves as the main Shanghai terminus of three high-speed rail lines: the Shanghai-Hangzhou High-Speed Railway, the Shanghai-Nanjing High-Speed Railway, and the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway.
Shanghai is one of the leading air transport gateways in Asia. The city has two commercial airports: Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport. Pudong Airport is the main international airport, while Hongqiao Airport mainly operates domestic flights with limited short-haul international flights. In 2010 the two airports served 71.7 million passengers (Pudong 40.4 million, Hongqiao 31.3 million), and handled 3.7 million tons of cargo (Pudong 3.22 million tons, Hongqiao 480 thousand tons).
