The university has one National University Science andTechnology Park, one National Technology Transfer Center. There are over 50 elementary and professional laboratories, 12 research offices, nine key laboratories of provincial level andfive Pilot Projects of Ministry of Education’s EECP (Excellent Engineers’ Cultivation Plan). Among them is the ministerial key laboratory of Corrosion and Protection of Thermal Power Equipment from the State Power Corporation of China.The major, power plant of thermal energy power and environment engineering, has been rated as the key cultivation of subjects for the Shanghai Educational Committee.


The library of the university possesses a collection of more than one million volume of books.There are more than 1,000 staff members in the Shanghai University of Electric Power. Among them, there are more than 100 full professors and 300 associate professors.

The university often organizes students as volunteers in social services, e.g. volunteers in 2010 World Exhibition, Beijing Olympic Games, community science shop, western field in China, some schools. There are many student societies and clubs, e.g. Chinese Orchestra, Roller Skating Club, Animation Club, Music Club, Drama Club, Badminton Club. Thank you.
