船舶与海洋工程学院的前身是创建于1943年的造船工程系，近70年来为国家培养了大批的船舶与海洋工程领域的高素质人才，其中包括中科院院士杨槱等知名杰出人士。 The predecessor of the School of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering of Shanghai Jiaotong University was the Department of Shipbuilding Engineering, which was founded in 1943. In the past 70 years, it has trained a large number of high-quality talents in the field of marine and marine engineering for the country, including the well-known distinguished members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Yang Yan person. Due to its complete disciplines, complete research equipment, and strong teaching and research capabilities, the College has become a well-known talent training and scientific research base at home and abroad in the field of marine and marine engineering, playing an increasingly important role in the development of China's marine and marine engineering. In 2009, the marine and marine engineering disciplines ranked first in the national first-level discipline evaluation.
The 21st century is the century of the ocean. The development of international shipping is at its best in 200 years. In order to adapt to the development of the world's shipping industry and the shipbuilding industry, making China the world's largest shipbuilding country and a strong country, a large number of senior professional and technical personnel engaged in shipbuilding and marine engineering are urgently needed, and the current professional technical and management personnel in this area are far from Can not meet the needs of the development of China's shipbuilding industry. To this end, Shanghai Jiaotong University, on the basis of continuing to run a full-time ship and ocean engineering specialty, is aimed at practitioners in the shipbuilding industry. The Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Continuing Education offers online education in the field of ship and ocean engineering to train marine and ocean engineering design professionals. And manufacturing senior technical and management talents.
