New university to recruit grad students

THE city's newest university, Shanghai Science and Technology University, will start to recruit postgraduate students next year and recruit undergraduate students in 2014, officials from the Chinese Academy of Sciences said yesterday.

Established by the Shanghai government and CAS, the university with an annual recruitment quota for 4,000 postgraduate students and 2,000 undergraduate students aims to train the top-level scientists and engineers in China.

Sharing a set of buildings with the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute (SARI) at the CAS scientific technology park in Pudong New Area, the two units will cooperate very closely, said Feng Songlin from the institute. SARI recently kicked off a cooperative agreement with US Drexel University for new drug development.

"It is not an ordinary university, as top researchers and experts from the institute can teach students at the university and students can do research at the institute's laboratories," Feng said. "Scientific education, research and transformation and industrialization of scientific and technological achievements will be truly realized at the same park."

The university has schools of material sciences, life sciences, information technology and innovation and management.
