​The 5th Young Scholars International Forum on Design Innovation 

Shanghai Jiao Tong School of Design

01 Introduction

Design education in the built environment at Shanghai Jiao Tong University can be traced back to the early twentieth century. In December 2017, the University grouped the design related disciplines scattered in different schools, and amalgamated three departments, Architecture, Design and Landscape Architecture, to establish the new School of Design. The new discipline cluster, incorporating the above 3 disciplines and named "innovative design", has been identified by the university as one of the key 17 "double first class" discipline clusters which will receive significant future support and investment from the university.

Over the past 30 years, the design disciplines at Shanghai Jiao Tong have pursued a harmonious communion of humanities, arts, science and technology for educating elite talents in the built environment, art and design fields. The programs have been distinguished by attributes of social conscience, leadership, cosmopolitanism and truth-seeking spirit. Their achievements in education, research, practice, social service and international reach have earned worldwide recognition. The Design and Landscape Architecture Subjects at Shanghai Jiao Tong School of Design ranked A+, while the Architecture Subject ranked A in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings in 2022. In the 2022 Academic Rankings of World Universities (ARWU), the Industrial Design Subject at Shanghai Jiao Tong School of Design ranked number one for several consecutive years.

The School of Design currently has more than 140 academics and professional staff and 980 students. Most academic staff have gained their PhDs and work experience from universities of international standing. In the next 3 to 5 years, we will substantially enhance the research and teaching capacity of the school with new recruits from around the world.
