Established in 1958, the Nuclear Engineering Department of Shanghai Jiao Tong University is one of the most well-known nuclear engineering departments in China. The basic disciplines for student education and training contain the fields such as nuclear power plant systems, nuclear thermal-hydraulics, reactor physics, nuclear safety, radiation protection, nuclear system control and operation and nuclear material. The education and training activities are mainly oriented to the needs of nuclear power related organizations concerning design, construction, operation and research of nuclear power systems.


The School of Nuclear Science and Engineering (SNSE) was established in 2006, including three departments, i.e. Department of Reactor Engineering, Department of Nuclear Material & Fuel. Department of Radiation Protection & Nuclear Technology Application. Five research sections have been set up for various research subjects, i.e. Section of Advanced Nuclear Systems and Safety, Section of Nuclear Thermal-Hydraulics, Section of Reactor Physics, Section of Reactor Structure & Material, Section of Radiation Protection & Environment. The infrastructures, such as an education & training center, experimental facilities and a software platform, have been established. The School is being in charge of and participating in a large number of research projects sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), the Ministry of Education (MOE), by the Shanghai local government and by national and international nuclear industries. The School has set up student summer schools with many famous international universities and sponsored international symposiums.
