The Shanghai Jiao Tong University was established in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China (PRC), in 1896. This centurion-old seat of higher learning is one of the premier and oldest universities of the country. It is included in the country’s Yangtze Delta Universities Alliance and the C9 League. Renowned as the ‘Eastern MIT’, quite a number of its alumni are prominent doctors and engineers.
The nomenclature of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (abbreviated to SJTU or Jiao Da or 交大) is written as 上海交通大学 in In Chinese. It is also alluded to as ‘Jiaotong University’ or as Shanghai Jiaotong University. The forbearers of this institution were the Nanyang Public School, the Nan Yang College of Chiao Tung, the National Chiao Tung University, and the Jiao Tong University
TRACING ITS ROOTS
This roots of this prominent research institution in the country’s public sector have been traced to the Nanyang Public School (南洋公學 in Chinese)established following an edict issued in 1896 by Guangxu Emperor. The Imperial Government placed the institution under the control of its Business and Telegraphs Office. The idea of setting up this school was first given to the Chinese Emperor by Sheng Xuanhuai, who was subsequently made the founder president of this significant establishment. Besides the Normal School, its management looked after the following three other schools, namely a high school, the school of foreign studies, and the middle school.
The institution was rechristened as the ‘Imperial Polytechnic College’ in 1905, just one year after the Ministry of Commerce took over its management. The College was brought under the Ministry of Posts and Telegraphs in 1906 when the institution was renamed as the ‘Shanghai Industrial College’. The college was managed by the Ministry of Communications at the time when the Republic of China was formed and following the creation of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), it was rechristened as the ‘Government Institute of Technology’. The School of Management was opened in the institution in 1918. This wing of SJTU is one the oldest institutes in PRC. Two other colleges were merged with the institute, and it was renamed as the ‘Nan Yang College of Chiao Tung’ in 1920. The institution came under the Ministry of Education, and it was rechristened as the National Chiao Tung University (國立交通大學 in Chinese) in 1938. There is another institution of the same name in Taiwan. The graduate wing of the university was added in 1943.
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).
