At present, the college has a first-level discipline of surveying science and technology, as well as a national second-level key discipline and a Shanghai municipal first-level discipline. With a high-level talent team and a strong faculty, including talents from the “National Young Oversea High-level Talents Program”, winners of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, specially-appointed professors of “Chang Jiang Scholars Program” of the Ministry of Education, etc., the College has adopted and constructed an internationalized teaching system from undergraduate education, postgraduate education, to doctoral education, becoming a platform of both talent cultivation and scientific research. High-level laboratories and bases for university students’ scientific and technological innovation practice have been established. All of these contribute to providing a broad platform for the growth of our students and the cultivation of talents in the discipline of surveying and mapping.
We warmly welcome students and outstanding talents at home and abroad to join us and become a new innovation force at Tongji University in building a sustainability-oriented world-class university, making a joint effort on the same boat to realize the national dream of becoming a powerful country in the field of surveying, mapping and geographic information and create a better future!
