IIDE (International Industrial Design Engineering) Launched by Shanghai Jiao Tong School of Design


Shanghai Jiao Tong University is launching an international full-time master’s degree program in International Industrial Design Engineering (IIDE), supported by the advantages and characteristics of the university’s international educational environment. The program will consist of simultaneous enrollment both at home and abroad, using the foundation built on the basis of its existing well-established cooperation with several first-class design, art, and architecture schools worldwide to set up a full-time master’s degree program taught in English with an advanced curriculum.




Program Features

Introduction of the Discipline

The design discipline was established at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1986, and first enrolled graduate students in 1999, constituting one of the very first such programs in China. It specializes in fusing major innovation, the training of high-end designers, and building integrated design and research platforms.

In recent years, the school’s Architecture and the Built Environment program has ranked among the top internationally in the QS world university rankings, while the Art and Design program ranked top 50.


Program Introduction

The IIDE program (Major Code: 085500) aims to enable resident Chinese students to receive a world-class design education and to cultivate leaders in the field of design without traveling abroad. It features the following elements:

  • The program will consist of simultaneous enrollment both at home and abroad. The ratio of students (at home and abroad) will approach 1:1 as the program matures. This will allow for the full realization of international exchange and the synergy of design ideas.
  • Abundant opportunities for study and exchange abroad will be provided in collaboration with cooperating universities. This will allow students to experience different design cultures.
  • In addition, a wealth of internship opportunities in diverse fields will be established with top-leading companies in China and abroad. Students can enrich their engineering design experience, abilities in cross-cultural cooperation, and international vision through such programs.

Faculty 
The IIDE program is a combination of long-term faculty and semester-based external faculty. The proportion of semester-based external faculty from world-class universities exceeds 50% .

About 80% of the program’s 15 professors hold doctorates, and all of them have overseas experience. A number of teachers have been recognized as excellent instructors by the university, and also have been recipients of China’s top 10 industrial design educators award, the Young “Yangtze Scholars” award and other honors.
