Shanghai Jiao Tong University is one of the oldest universities in China. It is governed by the Chinese Ministry of Education and is thus the recipient of public funding programs. This is evident in its facilities. Jiao Tong University is distributed among five locations within Shanghai. Shanghai Jiao Tong University is comparable to RWTH Aachen with regards to the number of students and partnerships with industry partners.
