Jiao Tong University President's Welcome
An experpt from )

Welcome to Shanghai Jiao Tong University!
Established in 1896 as Nan Yang College, Shanghai Jiao Tong University is one of the first national institutions of higher learning in China. The name "Jiao Tong" comes from the book Yi Jing. Literally, "Jiao" means unite and "Tong" means harmony. In the book it says, when heaven and earth unite in deep harmony, peace and blessing descend upon all living things; when leaders and people unite and combine their influences, the nation enjoys universal flowering and prosperity.
With a shining history of more than 117 years, SJTU has grown with and shared weal and woe with the country. At present, it is implementing a grand blueprint for future development and determined to make continued efforts to build itself into a first class university in the world.
SJTU, as it is fondly called, is a dynamic and comprehensive university for excellent students education, cutting-edge scientific research and social service. From the early stage of its development, SJTU took first-class talents education as its principal mission. And today, it has been developed to the talent education idea of knowledge exploration, capacity development and personality nurturing.
Whether one is Academician or newly enrolled freshman, whether one’s field is mechanical engineering or contemporary literature, in the name of truth-seeking spirit, SJTU encourages its faculty and students to join a common search for answers to the fundamental and to the pressing questions that society is faced with. Members of the SJTU community are united by this spirit to pursue intellectual excellence, and dedicated to the discovery of knowledge in the classroom, the laboratory, and the community. For its members, SJTU has become the place where their dreams start to fly.
Besides its remarkable history, SJTU is also a university famous for its honored traditions. Its tradition of gratitude and responsibilities has already been deeply rooted in the hearts of its alumni, and to some, it has become their behavior philosophy.
As the 39th president of SJTU, I am not only proud of its glorious history, time-honored traditions and great contributions, but also proud of being kindly called “Brother Jie”( “Jie Ge” in Chinese)by the students at SJTU. I really enjoy the time sharing and exchanging ideas and thoughts with them.
Thanks for your interest in SJTU and you are always welcome to visit us on campus or through the website at any time.

Zhang Jie
President of Shanghai Jiao Tong University
