ShanghaiTech aims to create a tight connection between research and education. Each undergraduate is required to participate in research activities with an assigned supervisor to guide his or her performance. ShanghaiTech has formulated a mechanism that leverages the strong linkage between education, research and entrepreneurship. An advisory system will be created that allows advisors from other institutes or industry to mentor the students. We encourage students to create start-up ventures initiated from innovative ideas and frontier technology.
