More than 100 teachers are invited by famous universities such as Renmin University of China, University of Science and Technology of China to work as part-time professors or tutors for doctoral students or masters.

After some reform and integration, HHIT now has 18 facultiesSchool of Mechanical Engineering, School of Civil Engineering, School of Electronic Engineering, School of Chemical Engineering, School of Marine Science and Technology, School of Food Engineering, School of Computer Engineering, School of Surveying and Mapping Engineering, School of Humanities, School of Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Foreign Languages, School of Art,School of International Exchange, Donggang College, College of Continuing Education and College of Polytechnic and a PE Teaching and Research Department and 60 majors with disciplines covering the area of economics, law, humanities, science, engineering, agriculture, management and art. There are 3 majors subsumed in the national 1st class unique major construction target list, i.e.: “Mechanical Design, Manufacturing and Automation”, “Chemical Engineering and Technology” and “Aquaculture Science”, 4 provincial unique majors and 6 majors included in provincial unique major construction target list.

HHIT has acquired fully-furnished infrastructures and multi-functional teaching facilities. With altogether 60,000 sets of lab equipment totaling RMB 230 million, it currently has 5 provincial pilot centers of higher education elementary courses, namely Elementary Chemistry, College Physics, Biology, Modern Commerce & Port Logistics and Comprehensive Electromechanics and 25 elementary labs co-established by central and local authorities. The college library has a collection of over 1.47 million volumes including over 1100 kinds of journals both at home and abroad. And meanwhile online library provides access to Superstar Digital Library, China Academic Journal Site of Tsinghua University, Wanfang Data, EBSCO, Elsevier, Springer link, etc. As per the request of modern maritime development, HHIT successfully established Jiangsu Document Service Center of Ocean and Nuclear Energy based on its unique geographic advantages.

Given the needs generated from provincial marine development and local economic policy, a series of marine labs and research centers are successively established, namely Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Marine Biotechnology, Jiangsu Marine Resources Development Research Institute, Jiangsu Marine Economy  Research Center, Jiangsu Marine Information and Technology  Center. Approved by Education Department of Jiangsu and Science and Technology Department of Jiangsu on 5 Nov 2010, HHIT  Science Park is currently under construction.
