School & Colleges



The School of Medical Instrument and Food Engineering provides study programs

for undergraduate and graduatestudents on biomedical engineering, medical devices,

 pharmaceutical and food processing technology, food safety and quality.

The school has its unique schooling features of combining science and engineering

with medicine while focusing on engineering. Medical instrument and food engineering

discipline group is one of the six key discipline groups of USST. Medical instrument

discipline is a key discipline of Shanghai Municipal, with its relevant majors

included in Shanghai Undergraduate Education Highland Projects and Pilot Majors

of Excellence Engineering Education.


The school has a competitive faculty, including 45 professors and associate professors,

and 58 doctoral degree holders. Prof. Wang Weiqi, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering

and an expert of Biomedical Engineering is the Honorary Dean. Prof. Hua Zezhao,

who is a national outstanding teacher and an expert of Cryobiology and Medicine

Technology, acts as the Chair Professor.


The Experimental Center for Medical Instrument and Food of the school has 18 public-platform and

professional laboratories with a total area of 4,000 square meters. Based on

the platform of the Engineering Research Center of Modern Minimally Invasive

Medical Devices and Technologies, the school actively conducts scientific

researches and technological innovation and which has been leading in the

research fields of modern medical equipment, intelligent medical instrument and

system, thermal science and biological systems, food safety testing and

monitoring. Recent years, the school has been awarded with many national and

provincial prizes. In addition, the school is enhancing industry-university-research

cooperation with relevant enterprises, hospitals and government departments.

We have built joint laboratories with leading companies like Nihon Kohden, Draeger,

 Braun Avitum and Fuji Medical. Many famous enterprises home and abroad such as

MicroPort(Shanghai) Co.Ltd, Philips(China) Co.Ltd and Runda Medical Co.Ltd,

have established innovation funds and scholarships for both undergraduate and

postgraduate students, which encourage young generation to devote into the

scientific research.


The school is constituted by 9 undergraduate majors and specialties:

Biomedical Engineering (including 3 specialties of Medical Electronic Instrumentation,

Precision Medical Devices, Quality and Safety of Medical Devices), Medical Imaging

Technology, Biomedical Information Engineering, Prosthetics and Orthotics

Engineering, Pharmaceutical Engineering, Food Science and Engineering, Food Quality
