Recently, Science and Technology Committee of Shanghai Municipality (STCSM) issued its Notice on the Establishment of the Shanghai Engineering Technology Research Center of 2020, and the SDJU “Shanghai Engineering Technology Research Center of Multi-directional Die Forging” was approved. Up till now, SDJU had two such centers.
This researcher center is to be constructed by SDJU School of Mechanical Engineering (SME). It will closely follow the needs of the industry, integrate excellent internal resources, carry out technical research centering on the technological developments and difficult production issues of multi-directional die forging to promote independent innovation and core competitiveness and build an internationally influential engineering technology research center with advanced research level. The approval of this center will further enhance our school’s Industry-Academia-Research capability, and promote the development of related disciplines. Meanwhile, it is of great significance for SDJU participation in Shanghai two-dimensional classified evaluation and the construction of a high-level applied technology university with distinctive features.
In recent years, SDJU has paid great attention to the construction of provincial and ministerial scientific research platforms, studied carefully application guidelines of Shanghai engineering technology research center and other professional technical service platforms, mobilized secondary schools to participate, and invited corresponding specialists to examine and coach related application endeavors.
Shanghai Engineering Technology Research Center is a provincial and ministerial scientific research platform with its goal to enhance technological innovation of emerging strategic industries in Shanghai. This platform revolves around scientific, technological, economic and social needs of Shanghai, carries out R&D of common key technology and product, implements transformation and application of S&T achievement, practices opening-up service and cooperation, and cultivates high-level engineering and technical talents, to become the source of common key technology and innovation base for transformation and transfer of S&T results, lead technological progress and promote innovation-driven development of Shanghai.
