Jiangsu University of Science and Technology (JUST) is a school with recognized excellence by the Ministry of Education of China. It has a history of more than 80 years dating back to the year of 1933 with Shanghai as its original location. In 1953, the University grew into the first shipbuilding school in new China and was relocated to Zhenjiang City, Jiangsu Province in 1970. In 1978 and 1993, it was upgraded and changed to the name of Zhenjiang Shipbuilding Institute and East China Shipbuilding Institute. In2004, the University under its current name came into existence after the incorporation of Jianghai Trade School of Jiangsu Province in 1999 and of Sericulture Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in 2000.

For decades, JUST has been devoting itself to molding its special features in the disciplines of shipbuilding engineering,sericulture science, marine-related majors alongside the new development in other areas of science and liberal arts. As a result, JUST has now grown into a key comprehensive university in China, covering a wide range of academic disciplines including engineering, management, agriculture, liberalarts, sciences and economics while enjoying a fairly high reputation in thedisciplines of shipbuilding engineering, sericulture science and marine-relatedareas.

With its main location in the scenic and historicZhenjiang City, JUST currently has built four campuses covering an area of over427 acres in total, including three campuses in Zhenjiang (east campus, westcampus and south campus) and one big campus in Zhangjiagang, Suzhou City.

Under the guidance and assistance of faculty and administrative staff, the University now has over 22,000 undergraduates and2,600 postgraduates actively engaged in multiple discipline areas.

In additionto educational training, the University tightly combines applied research with technological innovation and High-Tech achievements promotion.
