With approval of former Ministry of Machinery Industry, in 1995 USST began to establish 4 international joint colleges with Syracuse University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Queens College of the City University of New York and Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. Among them three were degree study for undergraduates and graduates, one was non-degree study. There were total 7 specialties. After the ownership of USST was transferred from the former Ministry of Machinery Industry to Shanghai Municipality in 1998, 4 joint programs for degree study and 3 joint programs for non-degree  study had been established in 2000 with approval of Shanghai Municipal Educational Committee. In July 2003, Shanghai Medical Apparatus and Instruments College and Shanghai Publishing and Printing Training School were put under administration of USST, so 2 more joint programs for degree study were added.

Among those joint programs, there are 7 degree study programs for undergraduates, 1 non-degree study programs. by the end of 2011 the number of involved students was 3106, about 18% of the total undergraduate students on the campus.
