The discipline originated the Shipping Section of the Shanghai Industrial College under the Ministry of Post and Communications which was launched early in 1909 in the late Qing Dynasty. It has over 100 years’ history.

It was permitted to carry out Master Degree program in 1984 after 80 years developing and the Doctor Degree program in 2006. In 2007 the discipline was honored as a key discipline of Shanghai Education Committee. At present, the discipline runs 1 second-level-discipline doctoral programs (Marine engineering), 2 first-level-discipline master’s degree programs (Naval architecture and ocean engineering, Power engineering and engineering thermophysics), 5 second-level-discipline master's degree programs (Marine engineering, Design and manufacture of ships and marine structures, Design and construction of naval architecture and ocean structure, Power machinery and engineering, Thermal power engineering, Refrigeration and cryogenics engineering), 1 specialized master's degree programs (Naval architecture and ocean engineering). There are a key laboratory of Ministry of Communications (Key Laboratory of Marine Technology and Control Engineering) and an engineering research center of Ministry of Education (Engineering Research Center of Shipping Simulation). A sustainable discipline group and laboratory group has established.

Laboratories of the discipline are all well-equipped, including marine main engine lab, auxiliary engines lab, marine electrical and automation lab, refrigerated container transport lab, refrigeration and air conditioning lab, marine steering engine lab, marine boiler lab, marine engine room simulator lab, ship model tank lab, etc. Specifically, the first domestic automation engine room with a large-scale two-stroke main diesel engine has been built. The scale and progressiveness of the laboratory is at the leading domestic level. And the laboratory can also provide experimental conditions for traffic information and control discipline, vehicle operation engineering, etc.

The discipline has sufficient research funding. There are about 150 research projects and 5,400 yuan RMB research funding in the last five years, including 6 national projects, 14 ministries-level projects, 122 enterprises commissioned projects. The discipline published over 10 monographs and over 170 academic papers, among which over 80 were cited by SCI, EI and ISTP. And we also have obtained 14 provincial and ministerial awards and a “the First Prize of Armament Equipment of Chinese Military Forces” and over 100 invention patents.

There are 25 members in the team including 11 professors and 14 associate professors, 14 of them have Ph. D, which forms a sustainable academic group.
