  • The Sino-French Institute in Engineering (UTSEUS) at the University of Shanghai

    Crea­ted in 2005 by the net­work of French uni­ver­si­ties of tech­no­lo­gy and Shan­ghai Uni­ver­si­ty, our engi­nee­ring school is today the first Sino-French uni­ver­si­ty coope­ra­tion, a pio­nee­ring and unique part­ner­ship in the fields of trai­ning and research. The Sino-Euro­pean Ins­ti­tute of Tech­no­lo­gy of Shan­ghai Uni­ver­si­ty (UTSEUS) trains more than 1 200 Chi­nese, French and Euro­pean stu­dents each year in an inter­na­tio­nal and mul­ti­cul­tu­ral environment.

    A University of Technology (UT) in China

    UTSEUS is an ins­ti­tu­tion crea­ted in 2005 at the ini­tia­tive of the 3 part­ners of the French UT net­work (Com­piègne, Troyes and Bel­fort-Mont­bé­liard)  and a Chi­nese part­ner, the Uni­ver­si­ty of Shan­ghai.

    The University of Shanghai

    Shan­ghai Uni­ver­si­ty, foun­ded in 1922, is the result of a mer­ger in 1994 of 4 uni­ver­si­ties, with a total enrolment of about 37 000 stu­dents, all cycles com­bi­ned. It is finan­ced by the Shan­ghai muni­ci­pa­li­ty and ranks among the top 18 Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties out of more than 1 129 institutions.

    This mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­na­ry ins­ti­tu­tion (27 schools and col­leges, seve­ral key State labo­ra­to­ries and many dif­ferent ins­ti­tutes) was selec­ted by the French UT net­work for its geo­gra­phi­cal loca­tion, its proxi­mi­ty to French and Euro­pean com­pa­nies esta­bli­shed in Shan­ghai, and its deve­lop­ment dynamics.

    Shan­ghai, with approxi­ma­te­ly 23 mil­lion inha­bi­tants, is indeed a very impor­tant eco­no­mic area, hos­ting many of the lar­gest Chi­nese com­pa­nies and attrac­ting the most renow­ned inter­na­tio­nal com­pa­nies. It is also a city that encou­rages inno­va­tion and the crea­tion of busi­nesses, not only in Chi­na but more glo­bal­ly in Asia.

    Industrial partners

    As a result of the struc­tu­ring of indus­trial rela­tions, UTSEUS has signed a part­ner­ship agree­ment with nume­rous com­pa­nies: Schei­der Elec­tric Chi­na, Das­sault Sys­tem, Total Chi­na, Baoxing infor­ma­tion (IT sec­tion of Bao Steel), Micro­pole Chi­na, HuiYi Finan­cial Infor­ma­tion Ser­vice Com­pa­ny, Air Liquide, ZTE, Sive­co, Decath­lon, Suez, Chi­na Mate­ria­la, Citi­zen, Xerox, Vidon, Tech­no­Chi­na, Fau­re­cia FECT, ACTIA Chi­na, Alca­tel-Lucent Entre­prise Chi­na, ENGIE Chi­na, Lear­ning Tribes Chi­na, Ser­ri­nov, Fau­re­cia (Chi­na) Hol­ding Ltd., resul­ting in various forms of enhan­ced col­la­bo­ra­tion for courses, confe­rences, fac­to­ry visits, indus­trial or spon­so­red pro­jects, inter­n­ships or mobi­li­ty grants.

    Cross-student mobility

    Engineering programme for Chinese students

    UTSEUS now offers 4 Chi­nese classes of stu­dents trai­ning in com­pu­ter engi­nee­ring, mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring, bio­lo­gi­cal engi­nee­ring and mate­rials science.

    After a 3‑year trai­ning in Shan­ghai, inclu­ding spe­cial­ty courses and inten­sive French courses, the best Chi­nese stu­dents can come to France for 2 years of stu­dy and inter­n­ship in one of the three French UTs uni­ver­si­ties of tech­no­lo­gy to obtain the double French engi­nee­ring degree and the Bache­lor of Engi­nee­ring degree from Shan­ghai University.

    Exchange semester "Sciences and Humanities in China"

    This pro­gramme is inten­ded for 2nd year stu­dents from French uni­ver­si­ties of tech­no­lo­gy or from part­ner uni­ver­si­ties who wish to have a first inter­na­tio­nal experience.

    For one semes­ter, stu­dents have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to conti­nue their stu­dies and acquire the first keys to unders­tan­ding Chi­nese culture by sha­ring their courses with 3rd year Chi­nese students.

    "International Engineer" exchange semester

    This pro­gramme is open to “Mas­ter 2” stu­dents from the 3 French uni­ver­si­ties of tech­no­lo­gy and other part­ner uni­ver­si­ties, from all engi­nee­ring specialties.

    For one semes­ter, stu­dents bene­fit from the dyna­mic Asian envi­ron­ment before their entry into wor­king life. Thanks to an offer of pro­fes­sio­na­li­zing courses, pro­jects within com­pa­nies or mee­tings with expa­triate engi­neers, the stu­dents open them­selves to pos­sible inter­na­tio­nam career perspectives.

    Semester on "Language, culture and innovation"

    This pro­gramme is inten­ded for stu­dents, young pro­fes­sio­nals or entre­pre­neurs from all back­grounds (engi­nee­ring sciences, human and social sciences, mana­ge­ment, arts, law) at Master's Degree level M1 or M2, who wish to give an inter­na­tio­nal dimen­sion to their studies.

    For a com­plete semes­ter, stu­dents live a real expe­rience based on the mee­ting of cultures and dis­ci­plines. With "inno­va­tion in tomorrow's smart and connec­ted cities" as the main theme, stu­dents learn through prac­ti­cal and concrete courses and pro­jects, super­vi­sed by a dyna­mic team of tea­chers, pro­fes­sio­nals and research staff.

    The ComplexCity Laboratory

    In 2012, UTSEUS also laun­ched the world's first research labo­ra­to­ry dedi­ca­ted to smart city issues – Com­plex City. Brin­ging toge­ther a range of scien­ti­fic dis­ci­plines from both uni­ver­si­ties of tech­no­lo­gy and Shan­ghai Uni­ver­si­ty, it involves resear­chers from France and Chi­na, as well as nume­rous aca­de­mic and indus­trial partners.

    Studying urban systems

    Com­plex City is a trans­dis­ci­pli­na­ry research labo­ra­to­ry that aims to stu­dy the city and, more broad­ly, urban sys­tems. Its work is based on an inno­va­tive approach com­bi­ning the ana­ly­ti­cal and com­pu­ta­tio­nal capa­bi­li­ties of the engi­nee­ring sciences with the open­ness and crea­ti­vi­ty of the huma­ni­ties and social sciences.

    Com­plex­Ci­ty is also an incu­ba­tor and a Fran­co-Chi­nese mee­ting and exchange plat­form for research pro­jects on the city. Explo­ring and ana­ly­sing the city as a com­plex sys­tem will help to bet­ter unders­tand today's cities and to desi­gn the cities of the future to face glo­bal socie­tal challenges. 

    Com­plex­Ci­ty contri­butes to the concep­tion of new ways of thin­king about cities and thus sup­ports its mana­ge­ment, desi­gn and evo­lu­tion. In order to mas­ter the gro­wing com­plexi­ty of cities and at the same time take into account the dif­ferent ways of thin­king about the city, we need intel­lec­tual models and tools

    Research axes

    The research axes of the Com­plex­Ci­ty labo­ra­to­ry are orga­ni­zed around 3 com­ple­men­ta­ry approaches:

    • the data that needs to be collected,
    • the models that can be used on the basis of the mea­ning of these data,
    • the inter­pre­ta­tion methods and tools that enable concep­tua­li­sa­tion and deci­sion-making based on the results pro­du­ced by the models.

    Areas of application

    5 appli­ca­tion areas have been identified:

    • Risk and cri­sis management,
    • Meta­bo­lism of a city,
    • Urban main­te­nance,
    • Phy­si­cal model­ling for urban com­fort and ener­gy efficiency,
    • Aging and geron­to­lo­gy in the city.

    14 Franco-Chinese projects

    The Com­plex City labo­ra­to­ry hosts 14 inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry research pro­jects, selec­ted by the research direc­tors of the group of French uni­ver­si­ties of tech­no­lo­gy and its Sino-French team during two calls for pro­jects laun­ched in France in 2013, com­ple­ted by a semi­nar in Chi­na. Four pro­jects were awar­ded French fun­ding and 4 others were sub­mit­ted to natio­nal or inter­na­tio­nal fun­ding projects.

    Most of the pro­jects include at least 2 UTs and Shan­ghai Uni­ver­si­ty and are all cha­rac­te­ri­zed by their focus on the city, both through the engi­nee­ring sciences and the huma­ni­ties approach.

    Modern cities suf­fer often from traf­fic jams. This research is direc­ted to fin­ding why these jams occur and to come up with effi­cient solu­tions via urban traf­fic model­ling protocols.
