A Breakthrough in the 2022 Rankings of Universities Achieved At Last through Ceaseless Efforts

Recently Shanghai Ranking, a professional evaluating institution oriented to higher education, released the 2022 Rankings of Colleges and Universities in China. With a total score of 179.2, SUEP ranked No. 187 in the nationwide comprehensive university ranking list, a big leap forward than when we ranked No. 222 last year, which is the best result in the history of our university. Meanwhile according to the released data, our university ranks the 76th in the discipline of science and engineering among the relevant colleges and universities in China and 13th in Shanghai.

There are 590 colleges and universities in total listed in the 2022 Rankings of Colleges and Universities in China (main list) released by Shanghai Ranking, with Tsinghua University, Peking University and Zhejiang University ranking the top three across the country for eight consecutive years while Shanghai Jiaotong University and Fudan University are among the top five in China. The 2022 Rankings of Colleges and Universities in China targeted more than 1,000 domestic colleges and universities at the undergraduate level. To properly reflect the different nature and types of the involved colleges and universities and ensure the disinterestedness of the ranking, Shanghai Ranking classified them into comprehensive ones, seven types of single-science colleges and universities and two types of privately-funded ones. Differentiated index system was also introduced to evaluate them respectively. This year the universities in Shanghai showed their very best with the four established 985 universities--Shanghai Jiaotong University, Fudan University and Tongji University as locomotives. Many other local universities also stood out from the fierce competition. Now our university is at a critical point to seek a high-quality development, to launch a comprehensive reform in depth and build up a high-level local university. It is expected that all the faculty and staffs of this university will go all out to fulfill all the goals and tasks of this year in higher spirits with more tenacity and a more practical style so that more contributions will be made to guarantee the university a successful pursuit of the high quality development.
