Fudan University (FU) is a public university situated in the city of Shanghai of the People’s Republic of China. This seat of higher learning is a member of the prestigious club of the C9 League and Universitas 21 universities. Spread over an area of 623 acres FU constitutes the four campuses of Handan, Fenglin, Zhangjiang, and Jiangwan.
TRACING ITS ROOTS
The origins of the university can be traced to the Fudan Public School, founded in 1905 towards the fag end of the Chinese imperial Qing Dynasty. This makes it one of the oldest modern universities in the country. In 1917, it was upgraded to that of a private university, with the name Private Fudan University. At that time it also had a middle school and university preparatory School. In 1929, 17 departments pertaining to the Arts, Science, Law and Business were started which included Journalism, Municipal department, Law and Education department. During the Japanese invasion of China in 1937, Fudan was shifted to the city of Beibei, in the province of Chongqing. In 1941, FU was converted to a public university and after the World War II, it was shifted back to Shanghai. Fudan was the first university to be modeled by the new government in 1952 on Soviet education. The original departments were changed, and the departments of Arts and Sciences from at least ten other universities in eastern China were attached to it. The university was converted to a modern comprehensive university after the Cultural Revolution of the 1970s. Finally In April 2000, the Shanghai Medical University was amalgamated with the Fudan University.
FU has an impressive list of faculty members, all eminent in their respective fields. These include over 2, 400 full time teachers and researchers, that includes 1,350 professors and associate professors, nearly 660 doctoral supervisors, 26 special professors and 2 lecture professors of “Cheungkong Scholars Program”,30 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 6 principal scientists of Project 973 and 25 “Young Experts with Prominent Contributions to the Country”, 3 distinguished professors and 10 special professors of Fudan University.
At present over 45,000 students are undergoing their studies in the university as full time students, students in continuing education and students learning through the online process. Moreover about 1,760 foreign students are also studying in the university.

The Fudan University offers a wide range of programs and departments of study. It constitutes 73 bachelor’s degree programs, 201 master degree programs, 6 professional degree programs, 9 national basic science research and training institutes and 25 post-doctoral research stations, 17 full-time schools, 69 departments, 22 disciplines and 134 sub-disciplines authorized to confer Ph.D. degrees.
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).
