With the plentiful resources available to SUSTech students to conduct scientific research, the future academic, entrepreneurial and innovative leaders of the new era are writing the next chapter in their journey in China’s innovation capital – Shenzhen.

In 2019, SUSTech was ranked by Nature Index Young Universities as the seventh-best university in the world under fifty years old and the second-best rising young university. SUSTech has set its sights on becoming the global leader in research and innovation.

As a university, SUSTech mainly focuses on science and engineering, specializing in courses that focus on new energy, new materials, next generation information technologies, energy conservation and environmental protection, biotechnology and many other cutting-edge areas of study.

SUSTech aims to provide the world with skilled scientists and engineers to tackle current global challenges. The promotion of interdisciplinary platforms sees knowledge and skills from different areas of study assimilated in an innovative way that encourages future leaders to take a holistic approach to shared knowledge and deeper learning.

Most of the SUSTech undergraduate degree classes are taught in English and adopt the “1 + 3/2 + 2” academic model. This model consists of taking foundational courses and general education in the first academic year to strengthen students' grounding and general knowledge. In the second and third academic years, students choose a major according to their strengths and academic requirements. Throughout their undergraduate studies, the university builds a platform for students to explore current research in a variety of disciplines and fields, and they can participate in cutting-edge research projects with hands-on research from their first year in Shenzhen.

In order to provide the best opportunity for students to learn from a wide range of academics, SUSTech invites hundreds of guest lecturers to campus every year, with two or more lectures taking place every day. Whether it’s a Nobel Laureate, a foreign academician or an entrepreneur, SUSTech students are exposed to the most incredible academic, innovative and entrepreneurial minds. This aspect of campus culture encourages students to spread their academic wings into alternative disciplines and consider additional viewpoints for their studies.

SUSTech is proud of its 10:1 undergraduate student to staff ratio, allowing faculty members to have more time to take care of their students. With SUSTech students focusing on scientific research and solving problems, our students are in demand by world-class universities, renowned research universities and top enterprises.
