While conducting the three-year vocational education, SIT mainly devotes itself for running of the bachelor's degree programs. The Institute consists of a Modern Education Centre, two departments and eleven schools, all of which cover 'materials science and engineering, mechanical and automation engineering, computer science and information engineering, civil engineering and architecture, environment and energy engineering, chemical engineering, biotechnology and food processing engineering, art and design, economics and business administration, foreign languages, social sciences among others. Among them, the disciplines of material processing engineering, applied chemistry, light-industry technique and engineering, art design and mechanic manufacturing and automation have been selected by Shanghai Municipal government, Shanghai Municipal Education Commission and SIT as Key incubated Disciplines. The discipline of Applied Chemistry has been authorized to run the postgraduate programme.

Faculty staff

There are a total of over 1800 staffs, and among them 600 are full-time teachers, over two hundred are supervisors for master degree and doctor degree candidates, as well as professors and associate professors.
